Title: Eurocade 2016!
Post by: PunkRockCaveman on May 17, 2016, 08:19:02 AM
As you have may noticed Eurocade 2016 is happening.


EUROCADE 2016

10. September 2016 in Oldenburg (Oldg.) Germany


Yes, ladies and gentleman it is taking place in Germany this year! We have a wonderful museum of old homecomputers in our town (OCM (http://www.computermuseum-oldenburg.de/)) that is also the home of our little arcaderoom. "We" is a little group of arcade- and pinball-freaks that decided to have an own arcade (that even opens to public once a month) a few years ago. After hearing that the former Eurocade crew will take off a year we decided to jump in and organize a meeting ourselfs. So let's get your cabs ready, book your flights, hire your trucks and hit the road to meet us and have the best party of the year in Oldenburg!

I guess I don't have to explain to much about the spirit Eurocade but to those who haven't been there before here is the idea: Eurocade in the first place is an arcade collectors meeting. The special thing is that the collectors bring in the machines for the weekend ... we have a bunch of cabs already in our gameroom but it is highly recommended and welcome to toss in another 20 cabinets at least.

It's not mandatory to bring a cab though. Many have to take a plane to come and most cabs don't fit the hand baggage containers in the planes properly. ;) So please feel free to appoint to our little gathering even if cab transport is not possible.

Eurocade is a closed event. This means that you have to have an appointment to be part of the fun. Just drop me a pm and I will add your name to the list of cool people here in this thread. If you bring a machine please report that too ... if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask!! There will be a little entry fee that includes the dinner at saturday night. It will be 20,- Euros. For those who are interested in the computer exhibition: it will be open from 14:00 till 18:00 on saturday for Eurocade visitors too!

PS: Never mind the pinballs ;) they are just there to fill up space ...

sounds great. as of now i don't have any school appointments that will keep me from coming, so i guess it's time to show up again after bening absent the last couple of years. and since i now have a "walk-in-gameroom" i can also easily bring a cab, most likely missile command.

so count me in!!!

p.s.: hope that our danish dude shows up as well :)


Title: Re: Eurocade 2016!
Post by: Level42 on May 17, 2016, 04:52:21 PM
I'll be there of course :)

Hope to arrange some transport with a couple of Dutchies so hopefully I can bring at least Star Wars cockpit....unless you prefer another cab of course :)

Depending on transport Im offering more cabs.....lets see how we roll.....

Post by: ajhippel on May 17, 2016, 05:07:56 PM
Jenny, Olivia and I will attend as well.

I'll bring the 3 Cabarets (Gorf, Wizard of Wor and SpaceZap again)

I'm not quite sure if I am already part of such a plan but maybe you arranged something with the other guys ... ;)


Updated the list and looking forward to burn the place down with you guys :)

Oh - there are 2 threads.  Put me down mr PunkRockCaveman, although it looks like I will be solo this time.  Maybe will bring my JROK fightstick provided it is complete.  Could be fun explaining that to security at the airport though.

Post by: PunkRockCaveman on May 21, 2016, 05:53:01 PM
Sir, you are on the list! We can arrange a little tour through our bars and pubs to show you a little of the northern german atmosphere ;) Mrs Caveman and me are still remembering the brilliant trip through Glasgows pubs during the "revolution times"!!  :spaceace:

Oh Damn, the Great Plastic New Astro City Candy Cab (GPNACx3 for the incrowd) is already on the list!!  :o  Too bad, I was planning to bring it. LOL  Oh well, then I guess Juno First has to be the next obvious guest game. Put it on the list, Joe-Joe.  :)

Yep, I am, and I'm so easy to get drunk!  :D BTW, I will leave my JF coindoor at home, just to be sure.

Would be nice, I haven't seen or played that one in a long time.

Post by: Vond on June 08, 2016, 09:17:54 AM
Hea man!

I've been mentally responding to this forum a lot lately...as in...not actually posting anything.
So excuse the late post in that regards.

Me and the missus will also be there, and if you guys are up for it we can take along a NeoGeo (in Genaric cab though).
We've got some games for it laying around (Incl Metal Slug 2) so we can switch out some stuff during the Eurocade.
In the meantime i'll be working  on our Robotron and Breakout(clone) cabinet, so there's a good change we will be able to bring
multiple cabs!

If help is needed with anything (we live quite close) just give a yell!

Guys, I was a bit offline from the arcade fever, but now im back  :wink:

I already planned holidays at this time, so you can count me in.

Edit:

Hurry up with that B&B hotel, I only got a smoker room and there are not many of them left  :-[

But other question, can we buy some Eurocade 2016 Shirts? If they are not planned, can we make one?



Title: Re: Eurocade 2016!
Post by: Level42 on July 18, 2016, 12:06:18 AM
Great that you're coming Andreas ! are you flying or traveling by car ? I have two transformers that need to go to Austria still...


Title: Re: Eurocade 2016!
Post by: Andreas_AUT on July 19, 2016, 03:43:39 PM
Well that depends, so the Eurocade is only on Saturday?
For all of you who will fly: you take the plane to bremen and then the railroad to Oldenburg?

Well, flying takes less time but its near equal from the costs against driving with my car and with the car, I could move to Stuttgart on sunday, visiting the Museum. So I think ill drive with the car and I can take something for you to austria ( sure you will give me some more infos ). I hope its not too big, my car isnt that big :-).


Title: Re: Eurocade 2016!
Post by: Pinge on July 19, 2016, 06:19:34 PM
I would love to participate in an arcade event outside of Sweden, is there any accomodation nearby except the B&B you already discussed? Any hotels?

Have to check if I can get a friend to tag along for a roadtrip.


Title: Re: Eurocade 2016!
Post by: PunkRockCaveman on July 20, 2016, 10:11:01 AM
You welcome to join the party!

Nearest hotel is this one: hermes-hotel-oldenburg.de ... it's not the cheapest though but only 30 meter away from the location.

Here is a link to Google Maps: https://www.google.de/maps/place/Oldenburger+Computer-Museum+e.+V./@53.1438497,8.2204122,20z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xb8b8f4522b8b27ab!8m2!3d53.1438858!4d8.2208124
I think it's easyest to look around for hotels that are in reach. Another cheap one is Hotel Alexaderhaus which is about 15 minutes walk away from the museum or the Best Western in the Melkbrink (that's the streets name). Maybe 5 minutes more to go but Oldenburg is a small town. You can reach almost everything in 20 minutes walk or 10 minutes by car. The bus system is not that cool. Most people here travel by bike ...

FYI, here are some printscreens with TripAdvisor's ratings.
(The Eurocade zone is located on the map right between the 135€ and 174€)
Prices are for a single room for 2 nights.
(Maybe don't forget to check if the hotel has parking facilities.)

Post by: PunkRockCaveman on July 26, 2016, 08:11:41 AM
Thanks Q*ris for the overview! Best Western is ok, Hotel Alexander also. These two are right round the corner from my place. Parking facilities are no problem in general. There is a lot of parking space at the Eurocade and you can leave your car at the venue if you don't mind taking a little walk.

So ... who else will join the party?? This will be great fun! Be there or be square ...

Post by: Level42 on July 26, 2016, 11:44:03 AM
Yes I'm missing some names here.....and cabs too !!!

My plans are to bring 2, maybe 3 machines....I was thinking SW cockpit, Q*bert and Berzerk. I think those are games that won't already be there and will add to the fun :)

depends on the van though and what the others will bring....gotta make some plans :)

Yesterday evening the Eurocade team met and talked about dinner plans, parking space, funny wristbands and sofa areas. It will be great! If you still want to join the experience (and for the better bring a cab to be a living part of the fun!!), drop me a message.  :spaceace:

Unfortunateley my wife needs surgery on her foot and the date has now been set to September 7th, Wednesday. She will not be able (or allowed) to walk for one week, so I'm afraid I can't come to Eurocade this year  :-[  :'(

Dammit, I really hoped the surgery would be in the week AFTER Eurocade  :(

Everything before noon will be perfect. Anyway, logistics are pretty easy in the building so we can bring the cab upstairs at any time. Doors will be open from 10:00, dinner is at 18:00. Everything in between is fine ;)

Gyruss and I will travel together (for the most part, we will also share a hotel room) and we plan to be there somewhere between 10.30 and 11 AM. Juno will be up and running in no time because you know how it is with these classic old games, just plug and pray!  :D

I'm really getting into the mood for this party, it has been quite a while now since last September and it's great that you guys are organizing the 6th edition of Eurocade!  :spaceace:

Oh, is there an afterparty on Sunday? LOL

That is all very good news :) We will provide you all necessary infos about parking, opening times, cellphone numbers and shortest way to the beer fridge a week before the action starts.

I personally have two and a half weeks off work after the eurocade so there is plenty of time to have a nice chat and a decent afterparty on sunday ;)

Well, I was in 2 minds if I would be able to make it - mainly due to the logistics.  However,  at €65 for a return flight Edinburgh-Bremen, how could I refuse !

Should be in Bremen 6pm.

No, Eurocade won't be public. Just the usual family style meeting. Let's be honest: Nobody wants any witnesses for the party at night, do we? ;)

Post by: Level42 on August 21, 2016, 12:48:22 PM
Guys, I'm really really sorry but I won't be able to bring the games as I had hoped....

We've been looking into options to rent a van but the costs are simply too high.
Regretfully, none of us has access to any other way of transporting the beasts..... :(

So sadly SW cockpit and Berzerk are not going to make it. I was planning to try and fit my Q*bert in my car today but the weather gods screwed up that plan.....I don't have high hopes since Mark and Wilma also will need to fit in of course....kinda regret not getting a stationcar  right now...

So...we're still coming but the cab situation is a lot less fun as I had hoped....sorry guys.

As a very very tiny compensation I will bring my "ultimate" Atari Lynx....I could also bring some home computer stuff, Vectrex etc.

André, that is no problem at all ... Eurocade is mainly based on meeting old friends again and making new ones!! Of course it is more fun with decent cabs but fortunately the lineup is already awesome with the games people bring!! The Star Wars cockpit will be missed though.  ;)

That said I encourage anyone to bring another piece of wood. We have some space left (now)  :P

Jesus ... I am so excited and looking forward to it.

Sooo.... here is a quick update:

We arranged the food for dinner now. There will be good german food (Hausmannskost) with potatoes, vegetables and meat in brown sauce. Very delicate!! There is also a vegetarian alternative for non-animal-killers and a salad bar. During the day we will have sandwiches (for a small dollar), cookies (for free) and other stuff.

The price for attending will be 20,- flat (very much like the other years). That includes the dinner of course, cookies during the day, small snacks at the party at night. All kinds of drinks and sandwiches can be bought for a very decent price during the day and at night. If you plan to bring your local beer, thats fine too. Just drop me a note if you plan to ... might change our shopping list ;)

The computer museum will be open between 14:00 and 18:00. For those interested in the homecomputers from the 70's till late 80's this will be very cool. So get ready for those!

At night we will have a small cinema with some oddities of 80's videogame movies. Be prepared to get a good dose of the strange and bizarre films that featured our best knows arcade cabs.

Details about the times and schedule will follow the next days ...

Yeees! It is closing in!!! Slowcade is coming to my home arcade this weekend to play games and to plan for the trip. :beer:

A couple of practical questions:
- We will be arriving late Friday evening. Around 2300. Will people be at the hotel or at the location at that hour? Will they be partying hard or simply sleeping?
- We will be staying at https://www.hotelbb.de/en/oldenburg/overview. Is this within walking distance for two 40+ men who are more into arcade than sports?




Title: Re: Eurocade 2016!
Post by: PunkRockCaveman on September 02, 2016, 11:33:11 AM
Nice! We will definitely be at the location at 2300pm. B&B is about 5-10min walk away from the OCM (where everything will happen). So don't hesitate to drop by! Beer should already be cold at that point ;)

From Bremen Airport to Oldenburg is very easy by train. Just go for the mentioned stations: airport -> Bremen Central Station -> Oldenburg Central Station. Should be around an hour to go. When you are in Oldenburg, just leave the train station and drop by at the location! It's right next door. Beer is cold ... always.

I'm almost sure this one is already set on free play but just to be on the safe side could you still bring your "credit button" along please? Cool!

Anyway, I hope that Level42 is bringing Q*bert as I won't. It simply doesn't fit in the car that I will use tomorrow without having to put gyruss (the human one) on the roof.  ::)

So I just put a real classic in an European cabinet in the vehicle, ready to drive off tomorrow morning. I will collect gyruss at 8.38 sharp ( :) ;) ) at a trainstation, before heading to the 2016 European Capital of Classic Gaming. See you all tomorrow.

By the way, Arch and slowcade are not allowed to touch my Q*bert unless they kneel before it and sincerely offer their apologies to one of the greatest arcade heroes ever..........  :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

sorry my friend....

(http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130619193555/wreckitralph/images/5/56/Q*bertConfused.jpg)

Don't worry about cabs ... just get in your freaking (way to small!!!) cars and get here.  :spaceace:

We proofed the electrics, some of the cabs and of course the best german beers already. Fits fine. :) Going to sllep now for maybe four hours and get it going. Eurocade jukebox already proofed its concept :)

Thanks to the EuroCade 16 team for a great event! - I didn´t take many pictures, but I´m sure there will be a lot!  ::) :spaceace:
Arrived safely home 04:30 today, and are now located on the couch chilling YouTube  ;D
Great to meet "new" people, and put faces to our handles.

Thanks for a great weekend.  It was good to meet "the crew", new and old for what was my 3rd Eurocade, each one in a different venue !

Some beer and food now before setting off from Bremen to the airport.

Just got back home. It was a great party, again.  :D Many thanks go to PRC and mrs. PRC and the other German Eurocade crew members. I had a lot of fun meeting and talking with a lot of friends and of course playing games. The food was great, the beer very nice and the atmosphere relaxing. Respect goes out to the ones that slept in their van!  :D

I fell in love again with Space Zap, such a beautiful game. This game is, together with quadropong, a real party crusher.

Too bad that some guys who were on the guest list couldn't make it after all, it happens, you were missed and hopefully we will meet next year.

Can't wait for the 2017 edition, and I'm curious where that one will be held.

Hi guys, I just arrived at home too ( now only 10 hours for the trip back ).
It was my first eurocade and hell, it was fun. Its really cool to meet the people in person, have some chatter with them and off course drink some beer together ( or whiskey  ;D ).
Thanks alot for the whole team who managed this Eurocade, you guys did an amazing job!!!

Edit:
I totally forgot to thank the guys who brought cabinets with them, I loved them ( the cabs :-) ) really much!

Guys ... I am still totally excited (and tired) and absolutely pleased with the weekend. Thanks a 1000 times to all who attended, brought cabs and kept the spirit alive. Was such a blast!!!

Pics and videos coming. We have 10gb of pics, 30gb of video plus two timelapse cams that worked the whole weekend. I guess this could be one of the best documented Eurocades so far :P

I got home around 16:30 today and I took a nap 1st  ;D

I still have a smile on my face from this event. Great to meet so many of you again. Cool to meet some of the guys for the 1st time. BIG thanks to the OCM people for the organisation of Eurocade 2016. You guys and girls ROCK big time.

The only downside to this is that it's already over. I had a blast.

I rate this on :spaceace: :spaceace: :spaceace: :spaceace: :spaceace: on a scale of 4

4 player PONG is from now on obligated for all future parties IMHO

Now that WAS fantastic  !!!!! So amazing how maybe the most basic of video games can give so much fun !!! I had a blast playing that......and it turned out I wasn't half-bad at it....maybe because "I have the most experience" with it ?  ;D ;D ;D

Man....what a weekend.....went by like a (Space) Zap !!!!

We totally enjoyed it....the location is awesome, the games were lots of fun, but as always, the people make Eurocade GREAT !!!

Thanks SOOOOO much to the entire team of girls and guys who organized everything and worked so hard during the day, you did a perfect job and really managed to capture the Eurocade feeling :D :D

Also big thanks for everyone who brought cabs !!!

Excellent dinner as well, and I loved that you guys stuck to the "18.00hrs-machines off-dinner time" concept  ;D ;D ;D

PRC thanks for taking up the glove the first (and hopefully not the last ;) ) international Eurocade ROCKED :)

Thank you all for a great weekend.
We had a blast at the Eurocade. Wonderfull cabinets, great food/drinks and even greater people.
Already looking forward to seeing all you guys again.
And on a sidenote I'm still getting nightmares about that hailstorm of barrels in that custom Donkey Kong... :lol:

Oh, I also did a walk-around again of the arcade floor.
