London Gaming Market - Sunday 15 November

Post by kieranhj »

Has anyone heard anything about this / planning to attend?

Seems to be an attempt to hold a regular (every 4 months) retro-game market in London.

Interesting, might have to go along to that myself.

Odd tickets are £5 at 11am, then drop to £2 an hour later - are they expecting a mad rush?

I am thinking about going. But this thread on Facebook (documenting a trader's singular failure to get a stall) makes me worry that there may not be that much there. Seems rather disorganised. :(

I do hope that this is just an isolated issue and that there is a good selection of stalls.
There is so much wonder in the universe; why should you want to imagine that there is more?

Not a single Acorn game here, it's all consoles.

Popped in and picked up a few PS2 games, I wasn't expecting any Acorn stuff though so didn't get disappointed :)

That's a shame. I couldn't make it in the end for various reasons. Does there exist a good general retro computing fair?
