I've just got back as well. Really great event - I think I was queueing for an hour and a half to get in after arriving from Coventry at about 10.45am.
I normally hate queuing, but as I was in a line of like-minded retro gaming types, I didn't mind at all. It was pretty cool to see the odd trickle of extremely happy people leaving the event, clutching their boxed console / computer purchases to their chests. (Although I must admit I was quite jealous of the chap I saw who'd snagged what looked like a boxed Colecovision - I think I might have treated myself to that if I'd got there earlier and the price was right).
Once inside, it was a good event, but one that would have benefited from a considerably larger venue. As has been mentioned, it would have allowed the stallholders to have laid out everything over a bit larger area (rather than half their stock on the floor), and visitors would have had a bit more room to wander around. I'm a 41 year old bloke and I felt a bit claustrophobic, so I can only imagine how it must have been for the few young children / heavily pregnant woman / girl in a wheelchair that I saw. That being said, I imagine the organisers had no idea so many people would turn up and will probably plan accordingly for the next event.
I also thought that the prices were OK in general - I was hoping for a little better from some stalls, as their 'discounted' prices seemed a bit excessive. But on the whole, I thought the event was great. I don't know about anyone else, but I got caught slipping a couple of times - saw something, looked at it, put it back 'for a few minutes' in case something even better was on the next stall, and then groaned as the very next person picked it up and bought it. Think I missed out on Vagrant Story and Dark Chronicle to name just 2 occasions where this happened. Ah well- never mind.
It's scary just how much money I could have spent today - if I could have afforded it. Looking forward to the next one already and will start saving now!
It was well worth the 6 million miles of roadworks up and down the M1.
I might post my purchases on the 'What Games/Consoles have you bought' thread for the first time with details of what I bought.
