Just wondered about opening times, sounds like its a bit busy so would like to get a few games in before it get crazy busy. Think last year we could get in a bit earlier, will it be the same this year?

Thanks

I am so glad I already know about 20-odd people on the list.

How the f##k I'll remember the other 80-odd people who I'll meet for the first time, I have no idea Tongue
Apologies in advance for the squinting at your nametags while hopelessly drunk!

Looking forward to catching up with those who were at both Revival and the Cambridge Arcade Experience event that I somehow managed to miss!

Can't wait! Thumbs Up

I know there's a "for sale" sub-thread on the go, how about a "wanted" for this event?

I - like many of us here - have stuff in boxes that I'd never get round to sticking on a "for sale" thread (since I might find a use for it, can't be bother selling to a non-collector etc)

If someone from UKVaC was looking for something, on the other hand...I'd have no problem passing it along

Just a thought....

I for one will take any spare Atari Breakout bits folks might have.....looking for an RF cage and coin bucket.

Just stick you wants up on the For Sale thread. My own post lists stuff for sale, for trade and what I'd like too. We just don't need multiple threads so bundle it all in one.

Really looking forward to seeing this.  I can imagine it being like watching a trailer for an Uncharted or Tomb Raider game.  If there isn't at least one shot of someone shuffling along an exposed, badly damaged beam I'll be disappointed Smile

Yep I'd already mentioned that the pics and video I've seen so far of Au Bon Coin look like the battered Nepal city buildings in Uncharted 2! And that's set in a ruddy warzone!

Can't wait for next month Alex, I can imagine a queue of 100+ people trying to get a go on your Sky Skipper cab ;)

Yeah, maybe we should all line up our quarters on the game and get a picture taken queueing up outside the door like some 1981 newspaper article.
