Original Sinclair QL boxed Microdrive cartridge.

Title: QL-Pawn / AKA The Pawn

Estimated Rarity (1 - 10): 3

Publisher/Author: Magnetic Scrolls & Sinclair/Rob Steggles (story), Jenny Tylden-Wright (cover art).

Original Media Name: The Pawn:2 (Game) and Pawn:copie (key)

Notes: My game cartridge has some corruption and I'm missing the card outer slipcase. Screenshots are from the version that is freely available online (e.g. from Dilwyn's site where there are authentic cartridge dumps of both cartridges, here: Sinclair QL Software-Games Page (dilwyn.me.uk)). Elaborate copy protection makes loading a little complicated - you have to first make two different backups (hence the space for four cartridges in the box), then use the first of those in connection with the 'Key' cartridge until you are prompted for the second. It's a bit fiddly initially.
