    EduGeek Meetup - Blackpool 5/6th November 2011

    Following on from mine and @Dos_Box's excellent weekend of gaming last year in Blackpool, the Replay event is back again this year at the Norbreck Castle Hotel in Blackpool.

    Quote Originally Posted by Replay Website
    Replay Expo is the unique video gaming event that prides itself in celebrating both the classics as well as the very latest titles. Following the success of last year’s debut show, Replay Expo will return to the Norbreck Castle Exhibition Centre in Blackpool on the 5/6 November 2011; the final weekend of the famous Illuminations.

    This year’s event will expand into additional halls, meaning 5000+ gamers will have access to even more arcade machines, pinball tables, consoles and home computers.

    In keeping with the inaugural event there will be an emphasis on families as well as hardcore gamers; an increase in the number of junior tournaments throughout the weekend will ensure there is something for everyone, young and old.

    Attendance from Nintendo, Sony, Sega and other household names from the gaming world helped draw in the crowds last year and visitors can once again expect good support from the games industry.
    So who is up this year for a weekend of gaming and great events in Blackpool?

    Replay Expo 2011 || Arcade is the site and both @Dos_Box and I had a great time last year and can recommend it

    As John said, it's a great weekend and mainly consists of playing almost every kind of video game/arcade cabinate/computer/console every built. For free + lots more besides. It really is a great weekend away and there are also many sessions and talks with famous game designers/programmers as well as companies like Nintendo, Microsoft and Sega showing off their lates gaming products. By Sunday afternoon last year John and I still hadn't played all the machiens we wanted too, but were slightly embarrassed by the amount of time we spent playing Pong. Mind you, the Pong table seemed to be a popular stop for amost everyone that weekend.
    Anyone up for it this year?

    I'm not nor have I ever been a gamer but it sounds like a good excuse for a bit of a knees up and an edumeeting to me.
