I'm looking for a copy of Acornsoft's Seventh Star, and any rare Electron/BBC text adventures if anyone has any for sale.

Thanks - I had not seen it but Mark has been in touch.

Mark - you will of course know that you can play The Seventh Star online, was there something specific additionally that you wanted? I think the *HELP hints are also available on the web. I have a disc version of the game but do not know if it works.

You guys got me going! Cleared out the loft to find the BBC Micro, dusted off the original map drawn on a scruffy piece of paper and the coding system for the Electron text compression system - took me back! Replacement capacitors ordered and my sons are up for a bit of a play with it over the Christmas holidays

Cheers

David
