Once upon a time, there was a Miss Game and Watch. Game and Watch had a special friend, he was called Game Boy. They grew up together, went to school together, worked in the same local super market and had the same aspiration of selling lots of portable consoles to make lots of kids happy around the world. They got a job working for some japanese playing card company and got married having lots of kids. In fact about 85 million of them. They named all of them the Nintendo DS. Though not quite original and it would've been nice to name them individually, it is a good name. I mean heck, you try and name 85 million kids!
Listen to or tell stories like above*, meet up with other social gamers, have a beer/wine/tipple of choice, chit chat about the great thoughts of the day or days gone by (usually game related). We even play some games on the odd occasion. The great thing about all of this of course is the fact you don't actually need many games since most of them are download play (i.e we only need the one cart!). Though we do recommend bringing games you really want try out... and mario kart.
So charge that DS, pack those carts, prep that stylus hand and game on!
If you have trouble finding the venue or want to know more. Please drop me a msg or take down number[masked] 44389.
Come along and meet the nice and the friendly at DS London - the meet up for Nintendo DS owners. Play some games, have a drink, chat away and make new friends. Mario Kart, Pokemon, Bomberman, Mario, Brain Training, 42 All Time Classics and people!
Our meetup has been since 2006 (over 6 years!) and still going strong. We focus not just on the gaming but the social aspect of getting a bunch of peeps in a pub, so be prepared for nostalgic gaming chatters, news discussions, philosophical debates (well... sort of) and just what ever comes up.
We've done over 100 meets, Nintendo ds tournaments, a world record attempt and traveled to other cities to spread the word! Little wonder that we are one of the top rated meetups :)
