Retro Video Game Night

Retro Video Game Night #019

Written by Aidy.

Date: 31st May 2019
Venue: The Hub, Cambourne
Tournament: Mario Kart 64 (Nintendo 64)
Tournament Winner: Alex (Ian's chum)

The first ever Cambourne Retro Video Game Night! It was a lot of fun to organise this little event and to have it within walking distance of my front door. Ian made his way over and put on an awesome Mario Kart 64 tournament, for which I managed to source a reasonably sized CRT TV. Lord Conrad's Brewery also made an appearance to ensure that everyone stayed sufficiently hydrated throughout.

The Hub seems to be just about the right capacity for an event of this size. You can fit somewhere between 10 and 15 systems along with a bar and enough people to give the whole thing some atmosphere. Was great to find a few other retro nerds in the process of putting this on.
