In addition, there’s usually a large collection of machines brought in my RCM members. I’ll be taking along my Commodore C64 ITX PC.



Next weekend it’s R3play,  probably the biggest classic gaming event in the UK and a follow up to the utterly brilliant Retro Reunited I attended last year. Not only is there a huge collection of retro computers, consoles & coin-ops to play, but plenty of trade stalls, competitions, Q&A sessions with leading programmers & artists,  auctions and lots more. This one is going to be something special and I for one cannot wait!

One thing I’m really looking forward to is the ‘beat the creator’ competition were I’m hoping to meet legendary programmer Archer Maclean and beat him at his own game ‘IK+’….or at the very least, last more that a few seconds 🙂

As always, pictures and words to follow.
