Exciting Retro Video Game Party

  • to

  • No location was chosen

  • Event date changed to April 19th. Location soon.


    Come join us for a night of retro video gaming! We will be playing game classics on the 8-bit NES as well as SNES and Sega Genesis amongst others! For those who don't know (and shame on you for not knowing!) NES stands for Nintendo Entertainment System. For those who grew up in the 80's and 90's, it's a staple in our lives.

    We will be having not only a tournament, but also playing 1-on-1 and 2-on-2 games. There may be prizes. Stay tuned for more information.

    Some of the games we will be playing:

    Power Pad - World Class Track Meet

    Battle Kid

    Several other Power Pad games

    Super Mario Bros.

    Kung Fu (the X-rated Hack)

    Urban Champion

    amongst MANY OTHERS!

    This will also be a retro themed party, so please dress like the 80's. We will have pizza from Domino's Pizza. There will be a house drink called 8-Bit Punch, served cold!

    The location has not yet been announced. My house is under renovation so this could end up as an "east side" event pending further discussion.

    All are invited, even if you suck at video games. If you hate video games, this might not be a fun event for you. There will be several 80's board games on hand for those who can't grip a game controller. We will also have a tribute for Marshall, one of the Meetup's lead organizers for this will be his 500th meetup event. He will receive a plaque made of paper and a danish sandwich. If you know Marshall, this is an event not to miss.

    Folks, what better way to have fun than a safe meetup group trusted by the community?

    Is this event still happening? I was wondering since no location was announced.

    Ditto. I can't make it now. My slot just opened up.

    Any updates?
    There seemed to be some talk about a different date in the past posts, is march 15th a solid date now? This sounds like a lot of fun so I am trying to schedule around it. But I do not want to have a conflict of plans if this date changes and collides with other plans.
    Hoping to avoid a conundrum…

      I guess the random change of date answers my question….

    Sounds fun, I'm in if this gets moved to April, if not give my spot to someone else, since I'll still be at SXSW.

    Hello, i have a rather large video game collection from every thing old and new. I would love to bring my sega saturn a few awesome multi player games. Bomber man and death tank. Both support 7 or more players. Easy games to pickup, tough to master. So everyone can enjoy. I can also bring a projector if you have large blank wall. I can also bring a screen but we would need to mount it. I can also bring a few extra neses and or genesises and games.

    I was contacted by a member here who can help bring this event to a bigger venue location. I will be emailing him this week. I thought I'd let others know a location will be announced sooner or later! We have had a request to change the date of this event to April 13. I am not sure yet if I will do that.

      April 12. If you don't change it, then I am not going.
