If it visited Glasgow or (preferably) Edinburgh like Game On did, then I'd be there for sure. Travelling anywhere down South is prohibitively time consuming and expensive for me. That and the timing issues as well - I've looked at things like Retro North before and would love to go, but they have a habit of being too close to my Anniversary so I can't afford it.

As long as it was in a real part of the country rather than up with all the northen monkeys it would be a great weekend...

JOKE - Don't get all moody (again..) :)

I went to the CGE-UK event down near old London town and had a great time, loads of great poeple, lots of games playing madness and a few drinkiepoos made it an enjoyable time and I would love to see a return to the UK.

Since I won't be attending Retro North this weekend, I'm looking forward to the next retro event I can get to... would go anywhere in the country within reason.
