Amiga Addict Xmas Edition Announced

Amiga Addict Xmas Edition Announced

Last Updated on December 5, 2022

I don’t know about you but I haven’t bought a Christmas themed Amiga magazine since the 1990s.

In fact, I’m not even sure the Amiga maga that lasted into the current century were confident enough of reaching Christmas to plan for it in any meaningful way.

So we’re very lucky to have Amiga Addict in 2022, and to celebrate an amazing 17 issues of Amiga heaven, they’re leaning into Christmas in a big way for the next issue.

In Amiga Addict #17 you will find:

Addict Media no longer accepts PayPal

Before you click the link above, it’s worth highlighting that due to unfavourable dispute rulings against Addict Media, they no longer accept PayPal for purchases. Although “payments via the industry-recognised Stripe, direct debit and bank transfer payments” are still accepted, you may prefer to brave the elements and buy your copy of Amiga Addict #17 from WHSmith.

Of course, you could also subscribe, which is a better option, requires a single annual payment, saves a bit of money, and also gives you a free PDF copy of the mag.
