i told people how to find me (i was pretty much a fixed point for the entire event since i had half a dozen machines out) and nobody from here came looking, at least not one i hadn't met previously! Or perhaps they did and what they found scared them away...?

(The new beard meant that at least one person i know walked right past me, though! =-)

Ah ok, I was the guy with the little black Samsung camera taking pictures of everything, my missus was the tiny brunette in the black hoodie, we spent most of the weekend with a ginger guy and a tall guy with a ponytail

i'm slightly worried by how much attention this beard is getting... and if you ended up with photos of a C64 or C64C with a blue power LED, that was mine. =-)

I filmed over 2 hours of footage at this years Play Expo so I thought I would share some of it with you :D

Here is a little teaser of the weekend, starting with that massive queue! Great to see soo many retrocollect and retrogamer members in there too. Shout out if you see yourself (i had to speed it up though otherwise it would have gone on forever :lol: )

Over the next few days/weeks i'll be putting up more videos. Likewise if anyone here took pictures and videos let me know and i could incorporate them with our footage too :-)
