Hi guys,

Is there going to be a Eurocade event / meeting this year?

I do hope so, I'm planning on going again, with friends in toe...

Such a shame there's no Eurocade  :(
Vic and I were talking about how much we enjoyed it, and the whole weekend. It would be cool to meet up again with you guys somewhere this year though  :)

The regular Eurocade date: second Saturday in September, so the 10th.

I can tell that last weekend the Eurocade CEO went over to the OCM to thoroughly inspect the location and I am very happy to report that it is a PERFECT location !!!!

 ;D


Title: Re: Eurocade 2016?
Post by: PunkRockCaveman on April 11, 2016, 07:02:31 AM
That's right! Eurocade 2016 will take place on the 10.09.2016 in the OCM (http://www.computermuseum-oldenburg.de) in Oldenburg (Olbg.) in germany! So save the date and prepare your cabs for transport over to our nice gameroom. It will be an "oldschool edition" with no visitors but with loads of fun for everyone attending.

Details coming during the week. We will work out a hotel deal when we have an idea how many rooms may be necessary. So stay tuned for details!

To Bruno: We might need a new subforum ... would it possible to get one? ;D


Title: Re: Eurocade 2016?
Post by: anunaki on April 11, 2016, 09:07:39 AM
Woohoo great news guys

Old school is the greatest school imho

Will it be in the museum? There are already a lot of games present there.



Title: Re: Eurocade 2016?
Post by: PunkRockCaveman on April 11, 2016, 09:45:39 AM
Yes, it will be in our gameroom inside the museum. There are currently around 20 cabs already there. And 10 pinball-machines (yes, we will have a few pinball-machines this year ;)). Will post a list in the official announcement threat. But there is plenty of room for more arcade of course!!! I guess we can place at least 30 cabs on top of that. There is also a bar area, two complete living rooms with sofas to relax and we have plans to open the computer museum (which is completely hands on with working machines) also on that evening.

But all details will follow ... for now just SAVE THE DATE ;)

Will be a challenge to get there from Budapest. :)


Title: Re: Eurocade 2016?
Post by: PunkRockCaveman on April 11, 2016, 03:10:35 PM
Airport Bremen might be good! From there it's maybe 45min by train. Trainstation is right next to the building ;)

Looks like there are no direct flights between Budapest and Bremen, need 1 stop. Prices about 200 euro now....


Title: Re: Eurocade 2016?
Post by: Digimon on April 11, 2016, 08:07:08 PM
@Bela - I can shuttle you from the Airport to the OCM;-)

Nope. BUD is not the easiest way by airplane. You can go from HAMburg or DorTMund with direct flights.

Consider flying to the Netherlands (Amsterdam), I assume some dutch woonwagen can get you to Germany :)

Thumps up for OCM...very close for me  :lol:


Title: Re: Eurocade 2016?
Post by: Level42 on April 11, 2016, 09:51:56 PM
Yes Bela, if Amsterdam or Rotterdam or Eindhoven is easier/cheaper you can drive with us....although we might have to put you in the back of a rental van  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D


Title: Re: Eurocade 2016?
Post by: Belike on April 11, 2016, 11:01:16 PM
Thanks guys, I will figure it out somehow, no direct flights to the surrounding airports indeed. :-\ ;)

Great news! Oldenburg, here we come!

Post by: PunkRockCaveman on April 12, 2016, 08:51:37 PM
Nice! I see there are researches done already to get to our little town and I am very happy to see the "usual suspects" planning to join the party!! Keep em coming! There is still plenty much room at the bar (and the gameroom has also a lot of vacancies).

@Bruno: Cool! Thanx in advance!!

@Arch (and ckong): Good news: we can stay as long as we want inside the location. No need to get back to the hotel and fight the cops again ;)

Is it at the oldenburg computer museum?


Title: Re: Eurocade 2016?
Post by: PunkRockCaveman on April 12, 2016, 10:15:01 PM
Yep, that's it. Our gameroom is inside that museum. But there is plenty of space left so don't hesitate to bring loads of cabs  ;D

Post by: ajhippel on April 21, 2016, 01:21:09 PM
some questions:

will there be an official thread for the eurocade 2016?

i'm planning to bring the 3 cabarets (Gorf / WoW  / SZ) again.
-> and i need a hotel like the one in ridderkerk (for the same price of course)! that was fantastic!


Title: Re: Eurocade 2016?
Post by: Level42 on April 21, 2016, 05:58:53 PM
Haha, sadly there's no Van der Valk hotel in Oldenburg, but the B&B is OK and even cheaper :)

PRC asked Darth to open a Eurocade 2016 section so yes I bet there will be a separate thread :)

(sorry Jörg, bad habit to reply to Eurocade questions ;) )

Hi Joerk, is there an official page or invitation somewhere?


Title: Re: Eurocade 2016?
Post by: PunkRockCaveman on May 10, 2016, 11:06:17 PM
No. Sorry ... I am really struggling with work at the moment. We looked around for cheap hotels though and the B&B in Oldenburg (https://www.hotelbb.de/en/oldenburg/overview) has very fair rates already. Only about 120,- Euro for two nights. Will have to work my ass off till this weekend but will sell my soul to write the official invitation on this upcoming monday.

That's a relief then! No more standing on a parking lot all night, with the police hanging around there also. LOL  I'm really looking forward to September 10th, the date  is marked and blocked.

Working on it......

8th September looks to be my last working day for 2 weeks and my wife has decided she would rather have 2 weeks on camp during September than travel back to the cold of a Scottish autumn.  I guess she prefers 40 degrees to 15 degrees.

Now to figure out transport options.
