What we're about

This group offers people who are into retro video gaming the chance to hook up, play and/or trade games. If your into your Megadrive, SNES, NES, PS1, Saturn, Game Cube, Atari, Dreamcast, Neo Geo or any other gaming platform from the 70s, 80s, 90s or early 00s this is the group for you!

Currently we meet up on the first Monday evening of each month. There is an emphasis on playing games (through hooking up a CRT) but also the 'collecting' scene. It may be that we can help each other overcome those extortionate prices by trading, selling and swapping retro games between ourselves but if your just into gaming and not collecting that is equally fine.

Bristol gaming market and after drinks!

The Passenger Shed

So its a way off yet but the Bristol retro gaming market is coming to Temple Meads in September! This event is for anyone that wants to go and then have the option of hooking up for drinks afterwards. Entry is £2 after 12pm. Here' a little bit about the event cropped from the website: "The Bristol Gaming Market is the UK's newest gaming market from event specialists Replay Events. The market takes place at The Passenger Shed, located in the historic railway terminus building of the Great Western Railway situated right next to Bristol's Temple Meads railway station. Our exhibitors sell a variety of gaming related items including retro games, computers, consoles, handhelds, artwork, apparel, import games, arcade machines, merchandise and more". More info at: https://www.bristolgamingmarket.com/ For those of you who would like to hook up before going into the show, we will be meeting at hearts bakery for a coffee from 11am on-wards: Arch 35 Lower Approach Road Temple Meads Bristol BS1 6QS Its basically a cafe with nice coffee and pastries. If you've never been there before, its easy enough to find and right next to the gaming market. We are expecting to go into the event at about 12pm. From there, the plan is for people to go their own way and hook up afterwards at the Kings head in Victoria street: 60 Victoria Street Bristol BS1 6DE There are loads of pubs around that area, so I'm sure we will be well catered for a 'few'.
