Wouldn't it just! I have to say however my top priority cab-wise for my event would be an Atari Star Wars cockpit... :D
I'd love that! Gauntlet is only my fav 4-player game. :D

Do you not find it a bit repetitive!?

Yeah! But it's much better with another few players than playing it on your own.

As you'll probably guess, I like games with a repetitive formula. If it's too complicated, I don't get in to it.

As it does not look like our Sega Saturn UK meet is happening this year, I would be very interested in exhibiting at this and inviting members of our forum along.

I may also be able to offer other help in organising the event (I live down the road in Stone and work in 'castle)

done the survey :)

my only real request would be to set a date and announce it as early as is humanly possible. workplaces such as mine need holiday time to be booked pretty damn early. i missed retro fusion because of this.

Really? Another retro head just down the road... I've already had a few responses from people that live really local - seems like there's quite a few of us about! :D

I'm going to let the survey run for another week or so and then I'm on holiday for a few days, but as soon as I come back I'll be looking for a venue and a date for the event. I'll hopefully announce this by the end of August...

I just started work with an online gambling/gaming company based in a new building next to the Roebuck center's multi-story car park.

Can't picture where that is at all - it's not the old Cinema/Metropolis nightclub is it?

I don't think so, I think that's the opposite side of the road.

Bumpage before I go away on holiday for a few days... I've had over 60 responses so far which is enough to tell me it must be worth organising something! :D

It's definitely worth organising something.
