Retro Gamer Gathering?

Post by Steve Halfpenny » Thu Mar 30, 2006 6:18 pm

Has anyone ever thought about or pitched a Retro Gamer convention? That'd be superb! (Sorry if someone has said this before! I forget about this forum!)

We had a "mini meetup" last year, as part of the CGE UK, which was great fun.

When and where is that?

I've been trying to find that Retro Fusion magazine, both the Torquay and Newton Abbot Gamestation stores don't have it. Shame it isn't in WH Smiths yet. Guess I'll have to order it online.

EDIT: Ohh, I see it isn't offically out until 14th April. Guess I'll have to check again at the weekend.

Try www.retrofusion.co.uk - as far as i know it's not going to be stocked in WHSmiths, only in GameStation stores.

If any meetings get planned I'm certainly on for meeting up - a good time would be to meet up at that GAME ON / Nintendo shindig show that's supposed to be touring this year I believe.

That's actually at the Science Museum in London from the autumn. Hmmm, Friday night drinking session, Saturday wandering round the exhibition and maybe a few games shops, Saturday night drinking session, go home (a wreck) on Sunday... sounds like a PLAN! :D :D :D

If you're going to have a retromeet, it needs to be held at a retro location - Novatel Hammersmith springs to mind..




..Or was that a different meeting i had there?

The Commodore shows used to be there. Hmm, do I sense some interest in this?

Well if you're looking for a retro location, why not Amstrad HQ? We could hijack the boardroom when no-one's looking...

Well, we could always make it a Christmas meet-up, since the Game On exhibition is apparently starting in December...
