You could try http://www.if-legends.org/~adventure/. It's not ideally laid out if you're just looking for a quick list of games, but it seems fairly comphrensive. There are also a few links to other Infocom sites, although you've probably seen them already. Keep us posted on your site

Cool Border Zone

Are you talking Infocom on the Amiga, or on any computer? Because Border Zone wasn't released on the Amiga.

Im only searching for the original, uncracked Versions, without Intro, Cracktro or changed Bootloader (whatever). Im not sure, wether they were protected or not, but the versions I have mostly have some Cracker Copyright in it ! Anyway, if you got some original Dumps, I would be glad to get them

But I have 1 question; some games for amiga are labelled with year 1981, 1982 or 1983 (Zork series...). How is this possible?

I have never ever played an Infocom game. Have I missed some great games? I remember them being very popular in the '80s.
