So that's what my legacy is, eh? I had expected my later results to overcome the early shenanigans! :P

Sir, many people have lifted trophies at Mega Drive Tournaments over the past 16-years, but you are (to my knowledge) the only person who has lifted a rubbish bin! :lol:

The place is called The National Videogame Arcade and is located in the heart of Nottingham. It has been in business for almost two years and has recently taken on charity status. It is the only one of its kind in the UK, and, as the name suggests, serves as the principle Videogame Arcade in the UK.

They do charge admission, the details for which can be found on their website: https://www.thenva.com/
You will also find additional information on the sort of things that they regularly do at the center. They have a good record of exhibiting the latest technology used for game creation, as well as having a very strong leaning towards the beauty of retro gaming.

Two questions, fellow warriors.
Which public transportation would you recommend me, from London?
What time is the event supposed to start?

The event starts at 11am.

The train is a good way to get anywhere and runs from London St Pancras and is cheaper to book tickets in advance.

National Express buses are another way and are cheaper, but slower.

We can also see if anybody near to London is driving up.

My (late) thanks for the reply!

I will likely buy my tickets after my next paycheck. I was also thinking about advertising this on my place of work if they let me, maybe a few blokes will be interested.

Any news about the tournament games? Or is there a discussion to be had?
