Oh my word, I'd love to go to this!

If anyone from my neck of the woods fancies - say - driving down, I can soften the blow for petrol costs

Wow. That looks great. Just looking at the mag covers on the web-link in the first post and I think I had every one of them

Unfortunately the wife and I will be receiving our second little bundle of joy about that time, so it looks like I'll not be heading to The Smoke any time soon...

I only bought AP when the other mags i was looking for when out yet! Yes the odd bit was funny, but i found on some games they purposely marked games down just for a laugh which i found disrespectful and childish, other than that it was alright when the decent Amiga mags had yet to come out that month

I can't make this now, unfortunately. I have a ticket that needs a good home, pm me if interested. Free of course.

I would absolutely love that ticket. Was gutted when I saw it was sold out. How do I claim it.

Thanks you so much

So who's actually going then?

There seems to be a lot of interest in this and for the life of me I cannot see why.. maybe i'm missing something? I dunno what will happen there but I hope some people make videos so the rest of us can find out what we're missing

I went but took no pics. Was really great to hear about how the mag was put together. It ran over time and still could've filled another hour easily I'm sure.
