Do you collect for the Amiga 500? Do you have a substantial collection?
If you do and would like your collection shared let me know.

I collect, multiple boxed Amiga's however only about 25-30 boxed Amiga games. The rest is disk only. So I do not think my collection will be big enough for you :(

Darran, I do still have my freezer cartridge for my old Amiga A500 - and guess what? It's not an Action Replay. It's a Nordic Power II - from Power Computing(remember them?). You had to load the software on floppy into the memory of the card, and then use it. I think the idea was, that way it was easier to upgrade the software of the cartridge. It's all I have left from my Amiga. Do you want a picture?

I hope you have better car boots around your way than mine. I've not seen an Amiga game in the wild for years! I found one CD32 game in a charity shop (Brian the Lion) but that's about it.

Ive got stacks of Amiga stuff,hardware and software,but to be honest ive not even looked at it in years, boxes of disks everywhere .
I really should get it all together one day and have a real bash at it.
ATARI....There can be only one !!!!!!!

Plenty of boxed Amiga games, but a 1200.

I have a 600 and a couple of Amiga 1200's and about 250 boxed games. But no 500.
