    Info:

    Since our last encounter, the HoG has upgraded the building with custom paint jobs in the retro and ITG rooms. The back rooms are being gutted (not the console room, don't worry), not sure what's gonna go in them. A nintendo wii-U has been brought for mario kart 8.

    As always, the event will have the following:

    - Tournaments
    - Prizes (actual prizes this time not cash I'm poor ._.)
    - The infamous pub quiz (get rekt scrubs)
    - Drinking after hours (if all overnighters are 18 or above)

    Tournaments:

    Daytona

    - 1v1 single elimination
    - Catch-up off by default. Both players may request to turn it on
    - Manual or Automatic, your choice

    (Back by popular demand) I mead a game with zombies in it!!!11!

    - Teams of 2, 3 or 4
    - 1 run, survive as long as you can
    - Highest combined score of the teams wins

    Mario Kart 8

    - Divisions of up to 4 players
    - 4 standard races in each division; 4 points for 1st, 3 points for 2nd, 2 point for 3rd and 1 point for 4th
    - Each race is chosen at random
    - Top total score after all 4 races advances to final division
    - Highest score of final division wins
    - In the event of a tie in any division, the drawing parties will have an extra race to decide a winner

    Pub Quiz:

    - 30 questions (10 pony, 10 general, 10 wtf)
    - Team numbers TBD on the day, dependant on participant numbers
    - No phones/etc. If these are seen your team will be DQed!!!

    We'll be joined by some of the SCB crew for this one ;3

    I wish I could be there, but I'm going to be in the land of Finns for a fair that is full of crystals.

    Have fun everyone!

    Will that surprise be cake?

    Doesn't seem like I'm doing anything that weekend. Might be down for this pending on funding. My bank is going to take a bashing from now until November due to steam sales and 3DS game releases :X.

    I would like to come to this, and I would also like to stay overnight, although I'm not 100% sure I am free on that weekend, so just put me down for a maybe at the moment.

    I aim to come, and I aim to stay.

    I also aim to bring X360 things for much racecars, and I may or may not bring my Onebox.

    Of course, I need to get work's rota for that week and try and get the day off if not.

    Have HoG got Wi-Fi yet? Last time I came I had to tether to my phone to get my 360 to boot some DLC.

    Just a quick update: Mark will be taking some of the machines to London Anime Con (he needs the advertising so he can't skip it no matter how ****-poor the event is). Some of the arcade machines will not be there. We generally bring our own consoles and play whatever we want in the console room anyway so this shouldn't be an issue.

    LAC was nice to go to but after a while it became stale, for me they have lost their spark and I haven't bothered going the to the past three (not having the money to go into London doesn't help either.)

    Do you know what will be missing? I'd like a go at the punching and digging game if they haven't been shipped off.

    I'm not sure if I'm able to go now as bills and rent has been piling up. I'd need to scrape together £25 for travel and get in then there's food and watering for the 10 hours I'd be there. I'm not sure if they'd allow outside foods/drinks now that they have a shop to buy those kind of things.

    Unless someone would be kind enough to help, I'm open for art, beanie hat and plush toy commissions and have a range of hand made crafts to sell. Information is in my signature if you're interested. Sorry for the shameless plug, I'll remove it if there are any problems.

    Oh, balls. Does that mean I can't stay overnight (I'm 17) without preventing everyone else from drinking?

    No need to remove, fine for it to be there ^w^

    External food/drink can still be brought in. The stuff they offer is for those who are too lazy to head to ASDA xD

    You are more than welcome to stay overnight. The only issue is if any under 18s do no one will be able to drink. Can you let me know ASAP so I may advise those coming to not bring alcohol. This is a strict rule set by the venue and as an affiliate/supporter of each other we respect the wishes of each company respectively.
