The economics of 2p machines

The pictures have been up since the event itself last weekend, but here’s the “official” post about myself, my Beloved, Spencer and three storage boxes of Oldschool Gaming systems heading off to Play Blackpool. This year we were set up in the corridor to one side of the main hall rather than the entrance which was more noisy (making conversations about the games running with people who were playing them more difficult) but warmer than last year and conveniently placed near where the cosplayers were gathering for photos.

Sadly, there’s just a couple of pictures I took of the heritage trams that passed us on our final journey from hotel to venue on Monday because I ended up suffering with a raging toothache that day and was of absolutely no use to anybody. Since then I’ve been trying to sleep through the pain and have actually visited an emergency dentist to have work done despite a deep-seated childhood phobia, all of which is my excuse for this post and the May workprint being late – there’s not much to say anyway, but it’ll be sorted during the coming week.

Despite my being useless on the Monday, there’s still quite a few pictures from the other two days in the relevant gallery.

    Yet again, thanks for the photos!

    My better half is finally coming round to the fact she WILL be attending an event with me soon; I mentioned Play quite a while back, but unfortunately it clashed with us having to travel up to Buckinghamshire for a family members 1st birthday…

    I will make it to one soon and maybe even pester the OSG stand!!! 😉
