2008 Crap Games Compo - Winner's Prize
16/01/09 - The CSSCGC 2008 prize was won by "The Mojon Twins" and has been sent out to them.
Here's some old speccy stuff I found and I will offer as a prize to the winner CSSCGC 2008:-
BMX Racers (Mastertronic)
Alien Destroyer (Sinclair)
Espionage Island a.k.a "Adventure D" (Artic Computing Limited)
Spellbound (Mad Games)
Throne of Fire (Melbourne House)
SU Doublehits 1:- Terra Cresta & Flash Point (2 copies)
SU Six of the best 2:- Demos of teenage mutant hero turtles, trantor, blackbeard, tenth frame, crystal castle, pang
Crash OCT '89:- Supersoccer, Zanthrax, Delta Wing, The Final Mission
Crash SEP '90:- Dynamite Dan, Luna Atac, Monster Munch, Solaris

Reasons as follows:- (1) The large proportion of entrants from outside the UK into this year's competition means that there is a realistic chance that the prize may have to be shipped overseas, which would cost considerably more if adding these extra thirty tapes to the package. (2) The amount being raised from the on-site ads is less than I realised, and therefore would not nearly cover the extra shipping costs of these extra tapes, which weigh approximately four times more than the Sinclair stuff alone. (3) There was no interest in the Acorn Electron tapes in any of the Sinclair related forums I have visited anyway. There has only been interest in the Speccy related stuff, which is a more appropriate prize for CSSCGC 2008.
So to re-iterate, the main competition prize is still completely unchanged, just the ill-thought out optional offer of Acorn Electron tapes has been dropped and they have now instead been set aside for an Acorn Electron user.
