Re:

Would just like to say I attended both years and have been lamenting CGEUK's demise ever since. Lets hope one day someone else can take on the task of organising such an event! Fingers crossed.

Arcade Hunt

Well, not actually an arcade hunt, more a pleasant surprise. I have just returned from a family holiday. One of the highlights had to be discovering a tiny games room at the location with 4 retro cab's in it. They were, in order of the amount of times I played them............. Out Run, Puzzle Bobbl...
