My 15 Minutes of Fame

III Algarve [ZX] Spectrum Tournament

Back in November 1987 I participated and won a video-gaming competition that was held in my hometown of Faro, Portugal. The tournament was held in knockout format, using ZX Spectrum games, some of which were Bomb-Jack and Ms. Pac-Man (which was used in one of the legs and in the 2 finals). I won a Timex TC 2048 computer which I traded up for a brand-new ZX Spectrum 128K +2.
