Are these still available? I love the vaguely familiar styling and centipede is a classic.
Hi. I believe there are a few sets left BUT I need to find the box with them in. I will post back here when I locate them!

My version states "BBC B / DRAGON 32" with the Dragon reference scrubbed out in marker pen. There is evidently only a BBC version on the tape too.

I have Galaxy Conflict but I missed out on Conflict when several copies of each appeared on ebay (for several 8-bit platforms) maybe 6-8 years ago. From memory 2-3 BBC Galaxy Conflicts were listed but only 1 x BBC Conflict (which I think I got outbid on). GC was in a giant box so was stored separate...

Re: 5 (6?) station Econet on the US west coast - Vintage Computer Festival West

Very cool David!

I love the fact that the Master still has the Acorn World teletext screen on it (that Dave Jeffery designed), which I assume was left over from when you displayed it in the foyer in between the two rooms at Retro Reunited Huddersfield/Acorn World 2009!?
