Was a great weekend, really enjoyed it.
I agree certain areas were packed and bottle necked at the busiest times on the Saturday, but it thinned out pretty quick mid afternoon.
Thought it was brilliant a mech game (ICB) was arguably the most popular cab there.
Thanks to all who contributed cabs and time for such a memorable event. 
I would also like to contribute next year, cant remember seeing a single cocktail?
The curry, beers and late night are taking their toll, i'm off to lie down.

Back home from a weekend at Revival, had a great time catching up with people I knew already and new ones.

Definitely got busier on Saturday than I've seen the other event but it eased off when the Hosted talks started up and the new area for the talks was excellent.  Very pleased for Craig and the team though to get such good numbers through the doors, the event deserves the success and popularity.

I think, like many, the Ice Cold Beer, Fire Truck and Video Pinball were stars of the show for me... but plenty of other stuff to play too.  I really enjoyed the Dave Perry hosted chat and was good to see him don the bandana again to commentate on stage later on.

I have a bunch of iPhone pics too but these are the ones I took with my proper camera on the Saturday...


Wanted: SEGA Power Drift PCB, Arkanoid Upright

Only the Sunday for me this year, I would not say it ever got too crowded, and the early entry meant we could have had a go on ICB and some of the other busier cabs, but I stupidly wondered around in a daze getting accustomed to the greatness before me as usual at these things :).

It was a great event again, only minor criticism I'd have is that it would have been nice to have some of the talks on the Sunday too. But that is a very minor gripe. I'll try and go both days next time :)

Very well worth it, and I am very appreciative of all of the team that put it together, a lot of which looked visibly knackered late on Sunday and presumably not relishing the tear-down. More power to you, I hope there are many more Revivals!

This is your crew chief
Yeah, the course is really tough
But it's a beautiful day
So good luck!

The teardown went un-nervingly well LOL We were waiting for something to go horribly wrong, but it never happened.
Safe to say that I'm knackered after the 5 hour drive, dealing with twats on the M6 and M73, then lugging the machines out of the van, but it was a great weekend. Smile
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my sanity the most.

Had a good time catching up with people... I only played one game... Rog's Mario pin as we got it running again... Bought loads of console sh*t had beer and except for the partial panic attack I had (due to the amount of people and the heat in the room) had a great time :)
Think my comedy highlight was helping put jb to bed at the hotel lol

Also the pie run was yet again a success :)
