Retro Video Game Night #012

Written by Aidy.

Date: 9th September 2016
Tournament: Adventure Game Pub Quiz
Tournament Winner: Unknown

Quite a lot of new faces at this one. We went with an adventure game theme and had the likes of Leisure Suit Larry, Monkey Island and Grange Hill out on display along with a healthy dose of all the regular favourites. Raffled off a boxed Acorn Electron.

To mix things up a little bit, Ian did an adventure game themed "pub quiz" in the main room.

Also! Retro Gamer's Kieren Hawken came along and filmed some of the evening, you can check out his video here:

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.
