• Hey, Guest!

    In these dark times we know it sucks, which is why we're trying to see the light at the end!
    We're currently polling a possible UK based meetup and would love to hear user suggestions and such. The thread can be found here:
    Linky.

    Please vote what location would be best for you. Even if you're not UK based! if we can find an area with cheap hotels and such. (London is overpriced) we can maybe get a group discount if there's enough.

Looking for interest in possible UK OG meetup..

Where would you like to meetup?

Once Covid's been kicked down......

With the amount of lockdowns in the UK and worldwide we all need something to look forward too. Which is why I'm asking for interest in doing a possible OG meetup sometime late in 2020 or 2021. This is all depending on how fast a cure is found.

I'm thinking some sort of meetup with music, food, booze (for over 18's..) and screens hooked up with games to play etc. And possibly (if we can get consent from developers) to show of some developer builds and allow users to play.

The only issue here is I'm out in the middle of nowhere which is why I've made a poll for locations in the UK that users would be interested in. All will have train/bus links.

Depending on the location and amounts I'll let users know. It may have a small entry fee but this is only so we know and I'll list venue locations on the two top voted areas.

Numbers likely would be limited to around 100 users but depending on how many request, and depending on how much to rent we can sort something maybe with higher but I don't see many coming.

Hey there

First time here, so hello there all.
Found this website whilst looking at Dreamcast games and the forum brought me here.

My name is James and I am based in Nottingham and run a Retro Gaming Business so, whenever everything goes back to normal a meet up at Leicester would be best for me (voted).

Look forward to reading more forums as it's been many years since I've been active on forums but seem to have somewhat more time on my hands lately.

Thanks
James

Coming from Australia, I'd say this isn't a bad idea at all, Damien! I have no clue about where anything is in the U.K., but I would be open to wherever it's being hosted.

Kind regards,

Leicester is the closest for me but it's still a fair trek though not as far if folks are coming from USA :O

Stoner.
 
it's a canny hike for me (Newcastle based) but meh, why not.
I love a good drive out.

bit of an edit:
If people are travelling a decent distance then I hope whoever is local has decent takeaway recomendations,
I have never met a fellow Englishman who didn't know where to get the best kebab in his own town, Please don't let this be a first ;)
