New competition coming up - Round 2!

Post by sscott » Wed Jul 13, 2016 1:25 pm

Gave away my virtual boy last year to a deserving forumite. Unfortunately due to my arthritis condition I can't physically get to my games room anymore. I can't swap cables or get up the loft ladder however really enjoying modern gaming. Will be giving away my gx4000, Saturn, MSX, NES and others with free postage.
Can anyone think of some awesome quiz questions. Will do a YouTube draw in a couple of weeks. Thx.

Multi scart box?

Train your kids to wire up machines downstairs?

In saying that
I wouldn't mind a GX4000

Question
Why would I want a Amstrad GX4000?

Maybe play a game and ask people to predict your score at it.

The consoles don't interest me personally but nice one for doing a give away all the same. :)

Wow unbelievable generosity :shock:

Always wanted a go of a GX4000 seeing as I used to have a CPC. No sniggering from the corner just because I had a CPC :lol:

I have no need of a GX4000 as I already possess a mighty CPC 464+ with built in cartridge slot! It's like fitting a toaster to a teasmaid- you can do it and they sort of go together, but.... Why?

That said, I've always been fascinated by the MSX. What about the old classic 80's comic competition thing where you had to do a spot the difference or a word search or some such and as a tie breaker finish the sentence 'I think I should win the prize because...' If it's good enough for Marvel UK, it's good enough for us!

Sorry to hear things are getting that bad for you Sscott, very young to be so badly afflicted :(

Generous as ever, might have a punt at the MSX when it turns up.

Sorry to hear that :( Swap the games room for a kids bedroom ;)

"How many meters of cable do I own in total - nearest 0.5m wins".
"How many controllers (or games? or consoles?) do I own in total - closest guess wins".

though you may need somebody else to work out the answers... :oops:

It'll take a week or two to sort out attic so will update then. I can still walk and stuff fine but the room is no longer being used and everything is gathering dust.
