It’s that time again – another year, another event

…and another year where I need to post something just in case someone comes onto this site and can’t find any up-to-date information on the group at all, and thinks it’s dead in the water. That would be highly unfortunate as the group has never been so alive – with over 1,000 members and some […]

NAG On Tour Part 2: OLL ’23

Well, here we are again. Another month, another major event and it’s only the biggest gaming event this region has ever seen. No pressure, eh? At the time of writing, we’ve come back from our Friday set-up day and it’s been a great effort from not just our team but the whole event. It’s looking […]

NAG On Tour (kind of): OLL XP

NAG On Tour (kind of): OLL XP

Well, I certainly haven’t learned my lesson from last year. I made the foolish decision to include our website address on our flyers (as a kind of ‘point of contact’ type thing) even though I barely ever update it, and in the knowledge that big events such as the one we are partaking in this […]

NAG at OLL '22

NAG at OLL ’22

So it’s here at long last. As I type this, it is very late on Friday 8th April and OLL ’22, the biggest gaming event this region has ever seen, is happening all weekend. Today has very much been full steam ahead in terms of preparations and I think we’re looking pretty good (even if […]

NAG Meet #18 finally announced

NAG Meet #18 finally announced

At long last, almost 18 months after our last full-blown meet, we are (obviously, subject to any restrictions that may be in place) getting together once more for an Amiga-filled evening at OLL Games on St Benedict’s Street. Come and join us on Saturday, 31st July – you can bring Amigas or peripherals if you […]

Come to OLL ’22 – a video games convention for Norfolk… featuring us.

You may or may not have heard that our friends at One Life Left Gaming Cafe (the venue of all our meets) have announced OLL ’22 – a video games convention at the Norfolk Showground Arena on the 15th and 16th January 2022. This is supported by The Centre Of Computing History, as well as […]

Merry Amigamas

Merry Amigamas

Christmas, eh? (Etc.) The true meaning of which is, of course, to eat several times your own body weight in food and giving your liver a tough time with excessive alcohol consumption. But do you know what else is great about Christmas? Presents, naturally. And even better – Amiga-themed presents. Let’s face it, if you’ve […]

Chucking money into a bottomless pit (aka buying an Amiga) - part 1

Chucking money into a bottomless pit (aka buying an Amiga) – part 1

One of the side effects of forming NAG that I didn’t anticipate was how much cold, hard cash I’d end up splurging on hardware. For many years I’d got by on a sole A1200 (albeit one that’s a long way removed from a stock model). In the early days of the group, I managed to […]

Starting the Amiga journey: NAG members speak

Starting the Amiga journey: NAG members speak

Hard to believe now, perhaps, but there was a time when the Amiga – yes, that massive slab of plastic that you could probably knock somebody out with (unless it’s an A600) which boasted a 68000 processor clocked at little over 7Mhz, and a stonking 512K of RAM at one stage – was the pinnacle […]

The Official NAG Top 40 Amiga Games Ever

The Official NAG Top 40 Amiga Games Ever

I know what you’re thinking. “A standard ‘Best Games Ever’ list, presented in the form of a countdown? That’s a bit of a desperate space-filler, isn’t it?” And, well, you’d be correct – but hey, there’s nothing like a totally subjective chart (compiled from the votes of many NAG members) to get people angry about […]
