#317522 Happy Birthday Sinclair Spectrum 16K

Posted by nails on 24 April 2018 - 09:19 PM

yup, had a 16k spectrum and then purchased a 32k expansion later


then the c64

then the amiga a500, b2000 and then a custom a1200 in a tower


finally took the plunge to a pc some 20 years ago and was surprised how similar the hardware and windows was, thus never looked back.

I grew up in the day of Embassey darts. it was fantastic and i even had a dart board signed by the great -


Eric Bristow, Leighton Reese, Jocky Wilson, John lowe, Keith Deller, John anderson, (F*ck me even had Trevor Nurse on there!!) and many many more.



His crafty cockney throwing and mannerism were a truly inspiring figure in the darts world. RIP

#316482 How Is Blackpool For Hi Tech Machines :)

Posted by nails on 08 March 2018 - 08:32 PM

Thanks so much for the replies, Nails when you say old Hi Techs do you mean like the JPM Rollercoaster era or a bit later such as Barcrests Space Raiders and clones
and Extreme Gaming Most Daunting and clones type?

Personally I'm not keen on any Hi Techs with a Jackpot over £35, that's when it all went down hill for me so don't really play in pubs and I just want that seaside feeling back, but as you say if it's Lo Techs and DOND at every seaside then that really is a shame.

Just want a good few Barcrests and Extremes and not Bullion Bars in every arcade, Tommy you say there is a lot of Hi techs at Coral island, do they have Barcrests etc or is every single one of them DOND?

Thanks guys

pretty much yeah, extreme, vivids, barcrest you name it.


honestly - play them all for free on here, sadly the good old days are gone.

#316476 How Is Blackpool For Hi Tech Machines :)

Posted by nails on 08 March 2018 - 02:17 PM

Hi FT90,


I've traveled to gt Yarmouth over 20 times in the last 2 years specifically to visit the arcades on business.


sadly i have to tell you, seaside resorts are just not the place to play hi-techs anymore. as time goes on, what is left will be replaced with the ex-pub DOND clones.

I've also visited blackpool. and whilst they are really geared up for the seaside trade, its a similar scenario. all the old hi-techs really are old.


if its value you want, you can stiull find them in the seafront arcades, but if you do like a good punt on a hi-tech, stick to pubs.


hope that helps
