Original Sinclair QL boxed Microdrive cartridge.

Title: Oxford Trivia

Estimated Rarity (1 - 10): 9-10

Publisher/Author: Talent/C A L Smith and D R Smith

Original Media Name: Triv Game, Triv Ques1

Notes: Irreparable damage to cartridge one, original question cartridge not present. I was supplied alternate mdv files, which didn't work due to the original copy protection. Fortunately by doing some cart swapping and using my dump of the original Triv Game cartridge it was possible to start the game (thanks to the help in the QL Forum). Game play is tricky - after you have chosen a category you get to see the next question and have ten seconds to bet 10%, 25%, 50% or 100% of your points total. You are then shown the four possible answers and have another ten seconds to chose the correct one. One incorrect answer after the first three questions and it's game over!
