Can't understand why someone would write such a large game @ 21Kb, but forget to put their Name on it. :o

A generic/multi-platform program from a book or magazine?

It seems a bit too professional-looking, and too long, to have been included in a book of listings. :laugh:

A cribbage listing (https://www.cpc-power.com/index.php?page=detail&num=16579) was published in the Australian magazine The Amstrad User, but that listing doesn't resemble the one in @ComSoft6128 (https://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=2226)'s video, so its origin remains a mystery to me.

I had a little look at the WACCI PD DISC Catalog and found a programme called CRIB from the PD DISC 6 - AMSDOS GAMES - AMSDOS. A few of the other games from the Disc Directory also come from the same Disc, but is missing others such as TIMEBOMB which, if it's the same game I'm thinking of was a Listing from Your Computer and ICEFRONT, which was a Computing  with the Amstrad Listing.


Otherwise it looks like the other files, CHESS, CONNECT, EDITOR, GIN, HANGMAN, PATIENCE & PIQUET also come from PD DISC 6 as well.


So I'm guessing that somewhere inside the WACCI magazine is some information about the game and their Authors?

I think you're right and this does come from the WACCI PD library. On a couple of occasions I had access to the entire library when Clive Bellaby (WACCI editor) brought it up for use at the All Format computer shows - so it seems likely that I copied the files at one of the shows to look at a later date. I just didn't realise at the time that "a later date" would be nearly thirty years later :o
