Worms didn't win because it was never given a chance - I'm told that the staff at Amiga Format were swamped with so many entries that they didn't get a chance to check every game that came in and Worms was one of the ones that they missed. I'm not quite sure what won the competition but I seem to remember something about clowns jumping on a see-saw. It was certainly no 5million seller, let's put it that way.

Also got my back issues (19-21) and also luckily found #23 (the one and only copy my local newsagent had). Feels like X-mas :wink:
Now, the next days are saved and I can put my mind at rest and look relaxed forward to my first sub issue...

I just got issue 23 today, and noticed something...

For some baffling reason, the editing team introduced a MAJOR error into my work, in the South African Global Gaming column. I introduced Tamaryn Brooke-Smith with the word "herself", since she is a young woman, and it was changed to "he" and "himself" in the final article. For the record, Tamaryn is a woman.

Any idea how this happened Darran?

Sorry mate, the error is my fault, and if anyone complains, I'll take full responisibility.

Due to my unfounded complaints against John's dilligent work, we will be retiring Global Gaming for a while and introducing a new feature to replace it.

This one apparently never actually arrived back home, issues 22 and 24 turned up successfully though. I don't suppose there's any way to track where this went, so I guess I'll have to pick it up again from somewhere.

I hope my thieving postman has a good read! (disclaimer: may not actually be a thief)
