RGC 2011 : a french retrogaming event !

Recommended Posts

Ave retrogaming friends !

 

The Retro-Gaming Connexion organization is proud to announce that its next RGC convention will take place on November 5th and 6th.

Like hundreds of enthusiasts during the last seven years, participate in one of the greatest retro/alternative-gaming-themed gatherings in France, and enter the Retro-Gaming Connexion Pantheon!

 

affiche_rgc_476x675.jpg

 

Discover or rediscover great classics which used to be your gaming partners, as well as more recent productions such as Dynamite Dreams on the Sega Dreamcast, or the Atari 2600 port of Halo. A complete range of machines from every era will be available, from the Pong to the PSX, including the SNES, the Neo Geo and plenty of others. But more exotic machines will also be featured, such as the Vectrex, the Gizmondo and a lot more...

As always, our team will welcome you with its permanent enthusiasm and friendliness.

 

We've relocated to a new arena this year (Meaux, in the Seine-et-Marne) which is easier to find, but also a lot bigger (1,200 m² / approx. 13,000 square feet) to better suit your needs. But our regulars shouldn't worry: "more space" doesn't mean "too many people", as we want to keep the laid-back atmosphere which makes this convention a unforgettable event.

 

 

Preview of the festivities:

 

- Booths: numerous thematic booths where you'll discover rare and exotic consoles, or different ways of playing (e.g. : networked PS1s).

 

- New games demonstrations: you'll have the opportunity to try out the latest homebrew or semi-pro releases on your favorite machines.

 

- Contests: join the current-day gladiators and maybe become the retro-gaming champion.

 

- Quizzes: test your knowledge and compete against the best video game gurus.

 

- Sales/trading: as always, a large area will be devoted to it.

 

 

Fueled by the same dedication that has been defining it for ten years now, the Retro-Gaming Connexion organization will once more be present to fulfill your expectations, and make those two days a moment of sharing and happiness.

We are eager to welcome you into our retro and alternative-gaming arena. Sharpen your gamepads, they'll be your swords during this weekend.

 

 

 

Groups members, designers or mere enthusiasts: do you have a project, game or group you'd like to introduce? We will be happy to let you use the stage to express yourself. Contact us on: email_asso_rgc.gif

here are some pictures from the event

as usual it was really pleasant

on the first day, our table with 2600,7800 and a modified 5200 were assaulted by people and questions

I brought some homebrews with me for sale

boxed 2600 Halo

Medieval mayhem (always really popular in France)

7800 Moon Cresta (thanks Bob)

and Vectrex Vector Pilot

 

it was also funny to see young guys asking questions about the 2600 and wanting to play the classic hits like Space Invaders, Pac Man,etc

 

The sunday was a bit quieter and we had time to play ourselves and enjoyed a cooperative Robotron on 7800
