Re: play expo, manchester, october 11-12 2014

Awesome event, the best so far in my humble opinion. I thought the layout was great with lots of space around each area, huge amount of arcade cabs and pinball machines, most of which were on all weekend. Met a couple of the pinball guys, really friendly and so passionate about their stuff. Was good...

Post by SirClive on Mon Sep 15, 2014 12:32 pm Queuing will be very different this year. Can't confirm all the details yet but we are looking at bringing the queue inside so at least you are warm and dry. That's good news. I know if must be a bit of a nightmare trying to get thousands of people into...

Re: play expo, manchester, october 11-12 2014

Gonna be going with my mate again, will prob end up spending most of my time on the pinball tables as has happened since the first replay in Blackpool. Stayed in the Ibis Princes Street last year and it was fine. Central for all the pubs and only about a 15 min bus from the venue. Stayed at the Prem...

Re: PLAY EXPO (formerly Replay), 12-13 October 2013, Manches

Didn't win on the raffle, but managed to win a very cute cuddly teddy on the Teenage Cancer Trust tombola. Unfortunately I won it very early on the Sunday and then had to carry it around with me all day, much to the annoyance of my mate who wanted me to either dump it somewhere or give it away. I de...

Re: PLAY EXPO (formerly Replay), 12-13 October 2013, Manches

Not long back after driving from Manchester to Cambridge, and just thought I'd pass on my thoughts on the weekend I think this years event was absolutely great. I've been to all four re:play - play events now and I'd say that this is only 2nd to the first event in Blackpool. It had a very similar fe...

Re: PLAY EXPO (formerly Replay), 12-13 October 2013, Manches

Hey thanks for taking the trouble to do this. TBH I wish I had booked the closer premier inn (North, I've actually booked the West, despite what I said above) months ago, but I wasn't 100% sure I'd be able to make the event. My original plan was to try and stay near city centre, because if I end up...

Re: PLAY EXPO (formerly Replay), 12-13 October 2013, Manches

I understand that in most big pro gaming tournies the gamers bring there own discs to avoid any issues with the law (which only covers game sales). However we always ensure the current gen games we run are no higher rating than 16 or they have to be in the 18+ zone. Aha, that makes sense. Although ...

Re: PLAY EXPO (formerly Replay), 12-13 October 2013, Manches

I don't think so. I've been trying to do a bit of research online and I think it's closed. In fact a lot of the monthly rock nights appear to be on a different weekend to when we're all gonna be there. Bugger :(

This will be my fourth event after the 2 Re-play's in Blackpool and Play Expo last year and the only person I'v...

I'll be going along with my mate again. Hope to see you and Malcolm at the pinball tables SuperMario :)
Aim to spend more time playing games and catching some talks this year, as well as grabbing a few beers at The Lass, can't wait
