'Vaccers,

In celebration of getting the museum cabs up and running again,  Ianski, t-m and nes4life will be running 'The Arcade Experience', a public arcade gaming event, on 2nd September 2017 at The Centre for Computing History in Cambridge. We're planning on getting over 20 arcade machines into the museum and creating a classic arcade experience for an evening. There'll be all the usual museum exhibits and computers (mainly running arcade conversions), a licensed bar, blaring 80s music, classic cabs, a high-score competition and the best food only a pizza van can provide!

Those attending from the forum will get entry into the museum all day Saturday for just the cost of attending in the evening (i'll get a code and a link up soon). For those that really want to get involved, there's an opportunity for a few to bring and show-off a cab, cocktail or cabaret and get free entry; just send one of us a PM.

Confirmed cab list (will add to this as the status of machines is verified)

Centipede
Tempest
Xevious
Gyruss
Mr. Do
Moon Patrol
Pacmania
Popeye
Out Run
Track and Field
Gorf
Defender (cocktail)
Space Invaders
Alien Syndrome
Asteroids (cocktail)
Sega Mega Tech
3x Jamma cabs

Pinball machines:
Fish Tales 

The following dependant on a few factors but hopefully at least a couple of them will be present:

Astron Belt
Frogger
Return of the Jedi
Jungle King


Get involved guys!

Would be great to see some of you again and hopefully a few new faces. The museum is a pretty cool place to visit in itself.

Just to point out the event is all about playing games, talking shop and having fun rather than trying to fix machines, but anyone is welcome to do so if the machines decide to play up :D
Looking for: Nice working monitors for my US games.

Ok. Let me check the calender and if I'm free I can bring along a couple or maybe a few cabs. It's a cool place with all the retro computer stuff to play and arcade machines.

Also there is a travel lodge and premier inn very local with in walking distance.

Always looking for a bargain.
Wanted. Centipede uprigh, bezerk, mad planets.

Dammit dammit, so very nearly had a room and ticket booked, then had my free weekend snatched away at the last sec. Sorry to miss out on such a great event & a long overdue return to Cambridge for me as well. I was really looking forward to it.

Have a bump & I'll buy a ticket or donate the same to show support.
This is your crew chief // Yeah, the course is really tough // But it's a beautiful day // So good luck!
