    The latest Retro Computer Games Festival will be taking place on Sat 16th October, starting at 2pm and running through till the end of the day. It will be held once again at the Garden Gate pub in Aldershot. We will have over 20 computers, consoles and handhelds for people to play on during the day. There will be a couple of competitions run through the day. A Knock-out competition and a High Score Challenge. There will be computers and consoles in the main bar area and back room, and handhelds in the covered patio area. They may even be an arcade cabinet or two but that is yet to be confirmed.

    The Garden Gate has a good selection of ales and is featured in the current Good Beer Guide. They've recently stopped doing food but have agreed to provide food on the day for us between 1pm - 3pm and 6pm - 8pm. It will be a reduced menu from what was previously offered and will probably be a selection of burgers and baked potatoes. There is free parking available in the car park next door to the pub.

    This is the planned selection of systems for the day:

    Acorn A3000
    Amstrad CPC 464
    Atari 2600 with Harmony Cart
    Atari Jaguar with Jaguar CD
    Atari Lynx
    Binatone Pong
    Commodore 64
    Commodore Amiga 1200
    Grandstand Astro Wars
    Grandstand Scramble
    Microsoft XBox (x3 system linked)
    Nintendo NES

    Nintendo 64
    Nintendo Gameboy
    Nintendo Gamboy Color
    Nintendo Gameboy Advance
    Sega Master Systen
    Sega Mega Drive
    Sega Saturn
    Sony Playstation

    and hopefully...

    Sweet! Though I tried to get some tickets to go there, and It's going to be pricey, lol

    Any chance of some Famicom love there or no?

    There was a young lad who came to the last one and brought a Famicom Twin with him. I've got no idea if he's coming to this one though! If you've got one and fancy bringing it I might be able to fit it in or maybe swap out the NES.

    Nah, I don't have one myself personally.

    The only system I think I have that's not on that list is a Barcode Battler. But who honestly wants to play one of those, lol!
