Retro Ball - Who went then?

Post by Darran@Retro Gamer » Sun Dec 04, 2005 3:59 pm

Got back a few hours ago and had a really good time.

Met lots of forumites, the mag got a lot of good press and I played loads of great games. Expect a full write up in issue 20.

I went. I had a good time. Nice to meet some familiar faces and many new ones. And get a sneak peek at the new RG :)

Yep I was there, had a chat to Darran at the bar and had a good old nose arpund the new RG, which incidentally is fantastic. Also met Merman just as he won the Jamma cab, lucky sod :wink: Also loved having a beer and a chat with Archer McLean, Rob Hubbard and David Whittaker - this was my 1st retro event and I enjoyed it so much I'll be attending as many as possible from now on!
