@retroking
Yeah,
The best site for any information regarding actual games is www.worldofspectrum.org
They have superb links to stuff - you will definately find some help there.
Do you have a list? I know quite a bit about spectrum games myself . . .

Some nice speccy stuff then! Cool!
My all time favourite has got to be the 48k Spectrum (rubber key!) - i lost a lot of my childhood (and a lot of my adulthood) on that baby!

Hi, I am WOSSER. And I'll make you the same offer, I make everyone like you. :)

pile it all up, take a couple of decent hi-res pictures of it, and I'll give it the once over, and give you a free valuation.

the catch? There isn't one, except if I spot anything M.I.A from the archives, would you be so kind as to lend it to the preservation team to archive it and upload in emulated form?

I can host the pics if need be, and you can post it on WOS, where others might give their opinion as to value.

They will also let you advertise it there, or plug your ebay links.

After a quick look . . .
Anything by Ultimate are not rare but collectable! Jet Set Willy (if you have the code inlay - always sells very well).
I am jealous of the following:- Bubble Bobble, Jasper and Moon Cresta! (As I dont have originals of those - yet!)
You certainly have a nice collection! THX would probably add some more to this though.

I would say that mine is longer than yours - not typed it all up yet though - so don't really know!!!! LOL!

I'm not playing, he went and posted them all as RARE GAMES in the wrong forum on W.O.S  :P

and it was his first ever post.

No. Altough it is hard to say from a minimal text description.
There might well be casette lable variations, or inlay differences which a photo would show up, which could bump a couple of quid on the price.

A couple of Ultimate titles are rare, you said that nothing by them was......... not in that list though.


I'd bundle the stuff up, by software houses, chucking out the damaged/missing/or dross to sell as a bundle, after offering up on collectors message boards.

With any adventure or RPG games, I'd offer those up in a bundle of their own.

Either that, or swap the lot for something.
