A wad of ZX Spectrum titles from Attic Bug.  I purposely picked up the ultra early titles that I remember playing when I first got hold of the Spectrum.  Some classics by Arctic (Gobbleman & Galaxians - Xmas '83!) and other early goodies.  Will do a full list but one I picked up is for RCM as it's the Latin drum-kit add-on for that SpecDrum that my mate donated last week.

From Mohican Kid's Lucky Dip

4 Dreamcast games (£1 per 2 games)

Some Atari 2600 carts (4 were part of the Lucky Dip)

Napoleon's Total War sealed boxed set (donated by Sega to the Lucky Dip). Not my cup of char but for £1, you can't complain.

Having a rummage around a few boxes I'd picked up from my parents the other week. Mainly old big box PC games from the early/mid nineties and some I'm having fun reloading with FreeDos.

Dark Forces
X-Wing
Tie-Fighter
Rebel Assault (oh Dear)
Destruction Derby
Screamer Rally (need an old PC with old 3dfx card to really play this proper)
Quake
Under a killing Moon
Fade to Black
