MSX Club Magazine was a popular magazine created by the Belgian DAInamic VZW from 1985 until 1992.

Since August 1980, DAInamic already published a multilingual magazine around the DAI computer. When interest in this machine faded, an alternative was found in the MSX computer.

The editors teamed up with the magazine "MSX Mozaïk" in March 1985, but after two publications the separate "MSX Club Magazine" was launched, with Wilfried Hermans as editor-in-chief.

The first issue appeared in July 1985 and was printed bi-monthly. The most popular section was undoubtedly "Speeltips". In total 36 episodes with tips and tricks for MSX games were written and annually the articles were compiled in "Het Grote MSX Peeks, Pokes en Truuks boek", from which five volumes were published.

Through a videotex database called "MSX Tele-Club", software from the magazine could be downloaded, although a special (more expensive) subscription including a 3.5-inch floppy was available as well. Also, a large number of programs and articles from the magazines were collected and published yearly in book called "Workshop".

Since 1989 the magazine was published partly in color, and it went on sale in bookstores in the Netherlands and Belgium. Starting from edition 35, Frank Druijff took over as editor-in-chief, since interest in MSX in Belgium was already greatly diminishing at that time.

Number 45 of the magazine was planned as a farewell edition, but never appeared. After edition 44 "MSX Club Magazine" merged with MSX Computer Magazine and continued with another publisher and editorial team to create MSX Computer en Club Magazine.

Over twenty years after the publication of the last issue, the same Belgian group of friends behind the magazine is still active. They now make educational software for PC and Android. If you want to see them smile, just mention the MSX.

All previous publications and software can be found on their website: MSX Club Magazine
