Hi, Spec-chums!

It's Rich Pelley here. Of Crap Games Corner "fame". Hurrah! Wibble. [Get on with it - Ed].

Have you ever entered the annual Crap Games competition? Or hosted it? Or even know what it is?

Did you read Your Sinclair? Did one of your games ever get featured in the original Crap Games Corner? Or did you just like it? Or even just remember it?

If you have any idea what I'm talking about I'd love to hear from you for a bit feature I am writing for The Guardian. I will happily exchange any help for a YS Trainspotter Award.

Thank you!

Rich Pelley

Entered it for the first time this year, not sure why I never entered in the 80's when Your Sinclair was the only magazine of choice and I wrote plenty of crap games :)

did make me awaken from my chaotic existentialism when they didst announce:
Most 80's homebrew Speccy games were crap. But then again, so were a lot of US
Gold titles, lol!!
