Your Sinclair was one of the "Big 3" Spectrum magazines, alongside CRASH and Sinclair User.  It was considered to be more humourous and zany than its contemporaries.  Its final issue was in September 1993, which was an incredible run, considering the 16-bit computers had taken foothold years prior.  In 1991, they published their top 100 games list, which was compiled by staff writer Stuart Campbell.  It was a comprehensive list of games featuring many classics (and some curveballs).  Join Drisky and Kingy as they go through the games on this list.  With thanks to Gary Arnott for recreating that final cover for our own poster for this episode.
