Best of The Quill, PAW and GAC - an IFDB Poll

by Denk
RSS Feed

More than 1000 games were made with the British tools "The Quill", "PAW" and "GAC" through the 80s and early 90s. Some bad, others worth playing today. I would like to know which are the best. Those with the most votes are probably among the best. I will add a few myself too. Thanks

Denk says: At first I didn't think of this one, but it is actually pretty good as far as I remember (played it more than 20 years ago). Should be good for beginners.
