I think I still have my RG Forum badge from last year so will be rocking that with a Play Expo crew t-shirt.

Anyone travelling from Leeds need a lift? I'm heading across on Saturday morning, aiming to get there just after 9 in an otherwise empty car. I'll be making the return journey at some point in the evening.
HADDOCKEN!

And anyone is more than welcome to come over and say hello to me and I'll point you in the direction of some RG regulars (if I can find them of course).

I'm normally easy to spot but even I might blend in with the crowds at such a large event :wink:

If anyone from Sheffield or nearby would like a lift I'll be driving in on Sunday with an empty car.

They had the Retro Gamer logo and a forum pseudonym on; i'd use mine again but it should've been in the storage boxes i've been working through whilst testing machines for the weekend and i can't find it!

i should be relatively easy to find though, i'm manning the Oldschool Gaming stand which is, according to the floor plan i've got, a left at the entrance, follow the first aisle along and we're near the end of that row of stalls on the left side. The exhibitor badge'll have my real name on (which is Jason), but if i can find last year's forum badge or get time to print an alternative, i'll have something saying TMR too. =-)

You'd better not be getting my hopes up :)

Any news release? Can't see anything anywhere yet... It'll be awesome if they're at the expo (and with more controllers than they had at Games Britannia).

OK, Boyo is in his own room due to his wife :lol: :roll:

So if anyone needs a bed there is a spare one going. Cost will be around 30 quid covering both Friday and Saturday nights.... :D

Does anyone know if there will be lockers (or something similar) available?
I really don't want to lug a bag with me all weekend long.

Thanks

Are there any food places there ? I know we can pop over to the Trafford Centre, just wondered if theres anything at Play.

The burger lady from the Stoke show says she can help out if you want ?
