I really enjoyed Glasgow, thought the venue was fantastic :D
Have a good time there yourself?

Yes, I had a good time, though I wish I hadn't gone solo, or at least arranged to meet people. It was weird not being a part of it, all the previous ones I had that cameraderie from setting up and getting people in the doors, so being and outsider gave a very different view.

I know what you mean, at least I had the Mrs in tow to annoy. I hate going to things like this on my own.

Looks like I'll make Saturday in Manchester, YAY!

I understand that - went to Revival Winter Warmer last year, my first one as "just" a punter since 2010, didn't know what to do with myself :(

The beating heart of PLAY Expo Manchester is the retro zone and this year will be our biggest ever display with over 300 playable consoles and computers in three massive zones.

Our brand new ‘gaming library‘ will contain 100 machines with a library of over 250 of the very best games from the past 15 years. Simply browse and find your favourite game, check out the disc at the desk, find a console and play away!
I wonder what the thinking behind the library thing is? People been nicking games?

Only a foolish fool leaves games out on the table
Thousands of people go to the event, one or two might be on the pinch
