[Event] Sega8bit 2013 - Sega Master System Fanatics Unite (Manchester, 10th August 2013)

Event-Sega8bit-2013-Sega-Master-System-Fanatics-Unite-Manchester-10th-August-2013If you collect Master System games and love Sega's earlier 8-bit offerings, then there's an event just for you. The Sega Master System fanatics over at Sega8bit are holding their annual event in Manchester yet again later this year. With the usual competitions and plenty of action on offer, don't miss out on this Master System gathering.

This time round Sega8bit have joined forces with SMSPower and have set the not so far away date of the 10th August to meet up. The event is set to take place in the Lass O'Gowrie, better known as the retro gaming pub, which can be found in the centre of Manchester.

Last year's event featured their now familiar multi-game competitions, ones which saw retro gamers battle it out for retro gaming prizes and the Sega Master System crown.

Hi All,

I organise this event and anyone is welcome.. I just want to point out that usually only around 8-10 people turn up. We usually have around 5 or 6 systems set up maximum and essentially that is the event.

The bulk of the day is made up of the games comp which usually every person there will be in, the comp is across around 10 games, with knock out rounds on each game - the overall winner being the highest placed across all games.

There are no games etc for sale unless someone brings some. No talks unless someone wants to do that this year?

I just don't want anyone to travel miles to this expecting a large event. If you want to come and play some Master System games with like minded people then you are more than welcome! If you are a member of sega8bit please comment on the thread over there so I can add you to the attendee list, if you are not a member just post a comment here and i'll add you on.

Thanks :)
