Manchester Comiccon Weekend

I got back to my house at 7pm last Sunday, slumped onto the couch and said, “Well, that was a weekend and a half!” I was exhausted. We had spent two days at Manchester Comiccon which, by far, had been the best weekend we had experienced in a good few years. Over the weekend I […]

It was created by Texas Instruments and was probably the most popular toy of 1978. It practically ate batteries, using 4 at a time, […]

The Trap Door

Somewhere in the dark and nasty regions where nobody goes, stands an ancient castle. Deep within this dank and uninviting place lives Berk, overworked servant of the thing upstairs. But that’s nothing compared to the horrors that lurk beneath The Trapdoor. For there is always something down there, in the dark, waiting to come out. […]

Cue Ball

Alex Higgins Cue Ball, or Bank Shot as it was also called, is an L.E.D. pool game made by Palitoy. The idea of pool, as I’m sure you know if you’ve ever played pool or snooker, is to hit the white ball with your cue, making it collide with the different coloured balls in the […]

The Adventure Game

Gronda, Gronda! Come say hello to Uncle, the vibrating aspidistra! The Adventure Game was a gameshow set on a distant planet, called Arg, in which celebrities had to solve puzzles in order to get back home. They also had to speak to a teapot, (or an aspidistra, depending on what Uncle had transformed in to […]
