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
Several other Power Pad games
Super Mario Bros.
Kung Fu (the X-rated Hack)
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?
