We will be doing a variety of charity fundraising activities at the event - as mentioned already we will have Mohicankid's Raffle and Lucky Dip, so if you have any suitable donations for prizes please bring them along... Prizes already confirmed include a Play Expo goodie bag (including 2 tickets to the event), an Atari 2600 with games and a variety of PS3, XBOX and PSP games.

We will also have Anna's Charity Sausage Roll Sale - I'm sure last year's competitiors remember her great sausage rolls, and this year they will be sold for a charity donation of £1 (or more if you think they are worth it). The three varieties available will be Pork and Apple, Walnut and Stilton (and pork!) and the brand new All Day Breakfast variety which I can confirm is awesome! She's also looking at doing a vegetarian variety too, to be confirmed.

All proceeds from the fundraising efforts will be split between SpecialEffect and the Sophie Lancaster Foundation...

So the event is nearly upon us and the tournament draw will take place later on and be uploaded to YouTube tomorrow, but I've just done a trial run and here's what came out...

Ms. Pac-Man
Indiana Jones
Donkey Kong
Bombjack
Gradius
Time Pilot
Marble Madness
Super Tank
1942
Road Fighter

To reiterate, this is NOT the final lineup of games, but if it was, what would you think? Would you be happy with these? If not, what would you like to see?

Time Pilot will always make me happy. Is the Mega Drive still going to be used, with Sonic Spinball?
