I had a great weekend trip to the RGE / Eurocade 2013 event, starting Thursday with the disassembling of my MK2 cab and ending today with the reassembling at my attic.

It started here, in pieces



My friend Laurent helped me from day 1 and came along with me.



No itīs not a cockpit



It slowly got back in shape



yeaaaaaaah boyyyyyy



wrap it up



I loaned a car with a hanger hook and I rented a hanger to put the cab in



and we went to Beeld and Geluid



to put the cab in the arcade


`
And checked in to our hotel room

Friday night it was already very nice at the hotel bar, in fact I completely forgot to take pics  Embarrassed because of the talking and beerdrinking

When I woke up on day 1, I could only think of one thing



After that, we walked to Beeld en Geluid



to get the Experience



There were consoles



Nozomi represent Cool



A cinema



But you all know what we came for



yeaaaaaaaaaaaah, what a sight guys



Maybe people are playing the MK2?



They are, and it makes me feel real good.....

Mr Eurocade in his great SW cockpit.



What's that noise downstairs? Bishi Bashi!!



There it is, the contest I looked forward too



Wow Pieter, it looks amazing



Nice hat Cool



Day 1 ends and some familiar people stick around in the building



To watch a movie



I see friends over here



And friends over there



The movie was......... shock oppps roll eyes confused pacman

So let's drink some beer



And Talk



And drink some more beer



And talk some more



At the end of this great day Etienne had something for Bela



It that......... yes it is



That ends the pics of day 1

Day 2, we're up quite late, but it's still busy at the breakfast tables



Let's make some more pictures of the arcade:

Brilliant looking Space Invaders



What are the odds to see these in Holland back 2 back?



This pic shows the great 80s music on day 2



The grandfather of 'm all



Ey, is that a fake Donkey Kong over there Stefan? Grin



This what the event was all about



Also on day 2 the MK2 was played fanatic



The man at work



I played juno First for the 1st time, great gameplay..... but very hard shock



And after watching Martijn and his passionat handheld item



I found out that Bela was destroying my DK highscore  and won the contest  Space Ace



Then it all went so fast, we packed the MK2 and put it back in the hanger



And it was back in my livingroom again



As was the great gift I received from the people at Beeld en Geluid, Tx so much guys



No King of Kong, but happy anyway

I almost couldn't believe you when you said that you disassembled the cab. That's really dedication!!  Space Ace Space Ace
I could see that the MK was one of the most popular cabs at Eurocade. It was almost impossible to get the chance to play it. Grin

Great pics Patrick, (in the cinema shot of myself an Stefan I look much alike Stan Laurels unknown grandchild shock ...)
Regarding the BishiBashi Battle Tyrem vs. Anunaki: Fell free to visit us in South-West-Germany  Space Ace

I've met so many people there at beeld & geluid and I'm so bad in matching names, nicks and pics....

What if we chose some crowd-shots and label the people shown with their nicks?

Great pictures and great report Patrick, you put it all down so well. Itīs nice to read that you, and all the others had so much great fun and I hope that it will not be too long before you have to disassemble your beloved MK again.  Smiley

Because I donīt know when we will organize our next event, but you and MK just have to be there.

Lookinf forward to see you at the Nozomi meeting end November.
