Minus temperatures and a coastal windchill factor that could freeze hell did not deter 1000’s of geeks descending on the South East town of Margate this weekend.
The 2nd year of #GEEK – Game Expo East Kent – opened it’s doors to a throng of both young and old. The Exhibition is mainly focused on the retrogaming scene (perfect!) but it did cater for modern gamers too; with Halo tournaments along side Super Mario Kart tournaments, hosted by world champion record holders of the game. It was a really great weekend and I just couldn’t tear myself away from such greats as Jetpac, Dropzone, Stunt Car Racer, Elite, Thrust and many many more.
Also met the 2 folks behind ‘Bedrooms to Billions’ and a couple of very nice people they are too! they gave a talk about the making of the forthcoming docufilm. We got a sneaky peek at what it has to offer and I’m really looking forward to the whole thing.
Here are some pics of the fun on offer. If Replay Events are hosting anything near you then I suggest you merrily skip along and have some bloody good fun.
