Retro Video Game Night #011

Written by Aidy.

Date: 24th June 2016
Tournament: Mario Tennis - Doubles (N64)
Tournament Winner: David & Andy

This was the 2016 summer edition of the Retro Video Game Night and there's no better way to spend a summer's evening than in a dimly lit museum drinking beer and playing old video games! We got out a few classic "summer" games including Track & Field 2 on the MSX and California Games on the Sega Master System.

Ian pulled out all the stops with his doubles tournament on Mario Tennis and one lucky raffle winner walked away with a BBC Master.

First Retro Video Game Night of 2016!
