Retro Video Game Night - Friday 11th March 2016

Retro Gaming Night is back again, this is our first one of 2016!

There is a loose theme of fighting games this time round, a raffle which has a top prize of a ZX Spectrum +2A, including games, and as usual our Games master will be running a tournament with prizes!

All our usual gaming displays will be on and we'll be getting loads of extra consoles and games out from our archive for you to play. Join us for a great night out and help support the work of the Centre!

7pm till Midnight

Spaces for this exciting gaming night are limited, so booking is required to ensure your place, although if you're lucky you *may* get in on the night. (tickets on the door will be £2 extra)
Due to the fact that this is BYOB and the adult nature of some games this is an over 18s event.

There will be a food van outside as usual, and we have a Pac-Lunch shop for soft drinks, Teas, Coffees and snacks.

Join us if you can

The Centre for Computing History
Rene Court
Coldhams Road
Cambridge
CB1 3EW

There are both a Travelodge and Premier Inn within a ten minute walk of the Centre.

Where:

The Centre for Computing History
Rene Court
Coldhams Road
Cambridge
CB1 3EW

Description :

Join the fine folks from Nintendo Life for an evening of Nintendo-related fun, frolics and general gaming goodness for all the family. Those who attend will have the chance to play all of Nintendo’s classic consoles, including the NES, Game Boy, SNES, N64 and even the mighty Virtual Boy. There will be systems sourced from multiple regions, including the TV Game 6, Racing 112 and Block Breaker consoles from the Pre Famicom days as well as a host of other Nintendo machines from around the world along with special multiplayer areas for classics like Pac-Man Vs., GoldenEye and a host of Mario Kart entries.

In addition we’ll be hosting a Mario Kart 8 tournament with some fantastic prizes, for those that want a more "modern" touch to their evening.

You’ll also have the chance to meet indie developers such as Utopian World of Sandwiches (http://www.utopianworldofsandwiches.com) and try out the brilliant Chompy Chomp Chomp Party, a Wii U game that supports a staggering nine players at once.

StreetPass will naturally be a big part of this event, and we’ve got plenty of dedicated groups attending for this very reason - if you’ve got puzzle pieces left to collect then be sure to bring your 3DS along. Younger gamers will be able to come along early and enter a special contest, too.

Once you’ve had enough gaming you can look at some displays showing the entire history of Nintendo gaming. There’ll also be a display on the struggles Nintendo has had with piracy, including some exotic carts and shady copying devices you may never have seen before. For those dedicated to enjoying retro games the right way, Retrospective22 (http://www.retrospective22.com) will also be on hand with some gorgeous modded consoles to gaze at and buy, while a number of Etsy sellers will be showing off their respective wares.

Finally, some the Nintendo Life team will be on hand for some games and a chat, including YouTube superstar Alex Olney. This will be a night to remember for Nintendo fans, book today so that you don’t miss out on all the fun!

The event will run from 3pm-10pm. You must pre-book your ticket here. All attendees will be provided with a wristband letting them stay in the Centre past our public closing time of 5pm.
