This was the first ever Retro Video Game Night at the Centre for Computing History and it was surprising how word got out and we actually had a pretty decent turn out. We persuaded a local burger van to come along, put out a load of extra gaming consoles, distributed some flyers around Cambridge and everything actually went pretty well.

Ian and myself probably went a little bit over the top with the gaming competitions though and had two separate tournaments plus a series of high score competitions dotted around the museum. After that we came to the conclusion that one tournament was enough.
