Yes, a "dead end" is not the best spot to be in (not for sellers' either I'd think), and it was way too light for the monitor to produce a decent picture....on the other side, the artwork and it's colors, especially the sides looked awesome Smiley

We still talked to a lot of people and handed out lots of flyers.....

We also had some Murphey's law going on because the monitor didn't work when the Centi arrived there. There is a weird set of 4 big fat resistors on the edge of my G07 chassis. I checked other pictures and there is normally just a wire there so no idea why they are there....
Anyway, one soldering had broken loose. Quickly found and relatively quickly solved Smiley (McGyver style).

Lucky I had my tools with me Smiley

one more...



It was funny, some younger people (remarkably lots of girls, Centi still draws female players somehow Smiley ) had to be explained how to start a game.

However, this young daughter said "dad I want to play too, look, it's for two and pointed on the P2 button....however dad was already too far away back in his younger years....... Grin Grin Grin

No, Pieter transported it to Deurne and there we unwrapped it. And we handed out hundreds of RGE flyers, so much that people got sick of it.  Grin Grin Grin

We received plenty of possitive comments and lots of people already heard about the upcoming event through game sites, the advertising on digital billboards and of course the publicity on GeenStijl.

So cool that you both were there. Andre saved the day with his superior technical skills and Erik was a great promoter (and you were right about the posters Wink). Thanks for putting in so much time and energy, the Eurocade after this one is going to feel like a walk in the park. Smiley

this is such a good cab for Eurocade. A nineties classic and still really popular.  Twisted
