Wow, awesome to see so many people playing the game!  Very nice setup you had there with banner, table and chairs. That looks like a pretty big event with quite a few people!  Thanks for sharing the photos.  :)

Wow, 500,000 visitors!!!  I wonder if it would be fun to visit for a non-German speaker.

Lots of very young people playing. Some seem to have never used a joystick before. :D

That's probably especially true if you modify that statement to, "Atari 2600 Joystick".  :)

Yes, the retro-hall was pretty relaxed in comparison to the modern madness in the other ones...

MANY people either held the sticks the wrong direction (in particular the competition pros) or kept the stick standing there, touched it and were puzzled when it fell over ;-)

It was great fun - all ages and sexes seemed to have enjoyed it.

(and I was lucky I implemented a nice title tune as it was very audible throughout our area :)

In fact several people also asked if those CONSOLES are available somewhere ;-)

And a short footage of a successful player:

 

Albert: Many non-german people around, in particular on Saturday/Sunday naturally.

Another Exhibition in germany: the ClassicComputing.

Focus is on vintage hardware but people enjoyed some rounds of Assembloids anyway ;-)

The labels/manuals are privately printed and will soon be available from the Atariage shop ;=)

Quite friendly, cosy and sufficiently close to the dutch border to remind me of my youth a few kms further north: super-soft white bread and 'Hagelslag' for breakfirst ;-)

Some more generic pictures of the event:

Interestingly, some did hold the joystick UPSIDE DOWN! :)

What's happening with the kids these days?

in fact that happened ALOT. Some even played that well. Or they kept the stick on the table and used one hand, thus pushing the stick over and then leaving confused...
