This edition was really fantastic!

Many many thanks to the Eurocade crew (with a special thank to Andre), you really did an amazing job (fantastic organization, great choice of cabs and computer / consoles, nice exhibition of Nintendo goodies...). Eurocade is definitely THE place to be for arcade fans!

Great to hear you guys are home safe again....and thanks to YOU for bringing cabs.....without your efforts the RGE/Eurocade would be nothing !

Franck, thanks for your compliments and although all of the "crew" did a lot of work, I think it's Pieter (Gyruss) who deserves the most credit by far as he did the vast majority of the work. The Eurocade crew "only" had to do the arcade work, but he had to arrange everyrhing with all contributing parties etc. so, big round of applause for him please, even though I know he doesn't want to stand in the spotlight like that Wink

Back at work


Thanks a lot for organizing such a great event! Pieter looked really tired when we left on Sunday evening and I'm sure he's glad that it's over (though there's still a lot to do) Wink  BUT you all and esp. Pieter did a great job!! Far better than last year. It was no problem to let the people play the games 'cause we knew they would be 'ours' on Saturday evening Smiley  The meal was great and so was the choice of drinks and snacks on Saturday evening.

I hope that Sunday saw the crowd this event deserves! I guess Saturday was a bit poor but on Sunday the rooms were as crowded as last year.

It was also great to meet all you guys again or for the first time, like Vernimark....I hope to see you in the future on one of our parties, mate! Smiley

I'm a bit sad that Guided Missile died on Saturday evening. Though it could be reanimated for the party it couldn't be played on Sunday Sad
But it looked great besides Boot Hill....what an amazing cab and game, thanks for bringing it, Chris Smiley
DOT and MC survived and I saw several people that looked at the large trackball with eyes almost as large as the trackball  Grin


So: THANKS for a great weekend! It was well worth the effort of loadiung the cabs and driving 5 hrs!


I took some pictures. When there's something interesting that can't be seen on others, I will post it Smiley

big thumb up for Pieter and the EC crew  pacman pacman pacman

I really enjoyed my time there, the organization was top notch , and thanks to the vip party the exhibit was more enjoyable,. The retro hall was really nice. Never though i would see so many Nintendo toys in one area. And lucas arts display was great (with my all time favourite computer game : Zack mc kraken !! Tongue). I really enjoyed the party and meeting you guys.

favourites cabs: boot hill, Gyruss and the Japanese mini Space Invader. Lovers in dangerous space time is a great discovery (congrats sjaak the cab is great).

Thanks all

+1!

And though rumors say different, no Asteroids Deluxe was harmed during the process of building the cab! Wink

Just checked the pictures....I'm afraid the camera was damaged when I dropped it on the floor. Not a single picture in the 'dark' gamerooms is sharp enough to be shown...all are blurry  Cry

The attached picture is the best one...I reduced the size so the fuzziness isn't that obvious...

It was amazing to be at this event on Saturday. Grin

I was in amsterdam this weekend for another mission, but we also came to Hilversum with a new friend Sander (also Nintendo Collector) and good friend of Eric from before Mario

Thank you to all that provided machines, I enjoyed playing SCI Cockpit as I own Same Cabinet but Chase HQ. Was great to Play Discs Of Tron on original machine, it looks amazing

Boothill is amazing game with backdrop, very simple but me and Girlfriend had great fun playing each other

My first go in Star Wars Cockpit too Smiley

Will post some of our Pictures soon
