It brings back memories of the 464 Manual and the Pontoon game in it. It was unfair and a fairer version was made which I believe was in an early ACU (CPC464 User), though made an appearance in the first issue of the Australian The Amstrad User magazine.


I typed in some other early ones, one from Home Computing Weekly:

has some nice looking cards with curved edges, though horrible colour scheme.
* Using the old Amstrad Languages :D   * with the Firmware :P
* I also like to problem solve code in BASIC :)   * And type-in Type-Ins! :D
