A busy few weeks at work including a rather long evening in one of our server rooms so not had much free time for posting and the odd game of late. Thankfully, Angry Birds:Star Wars & Robotron 2084 on the Atari 7800 has gone some way to restoring downtime equilibrium.
Hopefully, all will be made up this weekend with a full two days of classic gaming at an event called Retro Derby G N G. The Retro Computer Museum will be supplying a number of computers and consoles so it’ll be an early start at HQ on Saturday to transport our gear over to the venue. Should be damn fun and if you happen to be in the Derby area, check out the details on the Facebook page and pop along.
We’re planning on running a 8/16 bit retro event in Derby during November. The event will be aimed at raising funds for cancer charity’s and having loads of fun. The venue is very close to Derby city centre and can accommodate around 30 machines and up to approximately sixty people. I’ve recently permanently moved my Commodore 16 collection to the venue. We have three large rooms with projectors and screens which will be great for multiplayer games. It won’t be limited to just one brand of retro machines as we’d love to see many others too.
At the moment were getting a feeling for numbers and interest in the event. I’d love it to be successful so we can raise funds for the decided charity’s and have an amazing weekend. The weekend that’s been pencilled in is the 17th & 18th November. Everyone is welcome.
I’ll take a few photos and upload on my return.
