Old comp mags (Zero, Ace, etc) for free!

Post by station » Tue Aug 09, 2011 4:37 pm

I've got a huge amount of old magazines from the late 80's onward (to 1995).
There are quite a few Zeros, loads of ACE magazines. Also CVG, PC Format, Amiga Action, GamesX, Amstrad Action, etc.
These are getting recycled as they're in my folk's house and they are moving (after 20 odd years).
You'll have to pay postage (paypal), but I don't want anything for them. I'm on the Wirral, you can pickup the lot, etc etc.

How many Amstrad Actions do you have? Any idea on the sort of cost postage would be?

Loads, I collected from 1987 to 1990/1 or so. :) Postage would be about 10 - 20 quid courier for the load!

They're well before 1998 - about 1990 odd.
I put them all away in about 1994 in a cardboard box and they've been there since, I'll take a photo of them all in a mo.

I'll post up the ones I find as I go along, I'm emptying a cupboard which has so much random magazine based literature, I'm running out of space to transfer them to!! I'm meant to be tidying and I just end up reading stuff instead.

Issue 94 (Sept 1989)
Issue 95 (Oct 1989)
Issue 109 (Dec 1990)
Issue 110 (Jan 1991)
Issue 117 (Aug 1991)
Issue 118 (Sept 1991)

This will be a logistical challenge! I'll get the whole lot out tomorrow and get everyone's wants sorted out, whoever asked first gets what they asked for. :)

PC games are pretty much all the ones they did since 1991/2 (like Armourgeddon / Hired Guns, etc) to Ecstatica / City Of The Lost Children / Destruction Derby 2. I'd love to keep them but I can't. :)

I've been reliably informed by Ms Dom that I'm not allowed to buy any more gaming stuff until payday (25th) Would it be cheeky to ask if you'll be able to hang on to them til then?
