Anyone interested in a Trademeet in August

Recommended Posts

I cannot remember for sure the last time I met with retro gamers, but I would imagine it was sometime before 2010. Well, I think its high time something should be done about it. I propose to have a meetup at my house near the south shore of Massachusetts. Tradebait, video games, your alcohol of choice, bring them. Pizza can be ordered. The two weekends I have available are August 15-16 and August 22-23. What works for most people is what I will choose.

 

If anyone has suggestions regarding retro multiplayer games, be sure to offer them, especially four player games. For systems I can provide Atari 2600, NES, SNES & N64, Genesis & Playstation with modern multicarts for all but the last. It would be helpful for people to bring extra controllers.

Anyone planning to attend the Retroworld expo in CT the first weekend of October? Could be a good opportunity to meet local gamers and work out some trades. http://retroworldexpo.com/

I was thinking of going. But at $25 a person, I'll pass.

 

I have a 5200 lot for sale/trade. Same thing with a boxed 32X lot.

I will be there for a quick run-thru in the morning and be back after lunch or so. It helps when you live 10 minutes from the place.

Did anybody go to this show. It was very packed but there wasn't a lot of Atari stuff. 90% Nintendo. They had some arcade games. Played a few games of Mario Bros. I hadn't played a real cab of Mario Bros. in decades.

I was there in the morning then came back later at night after dinner. Didn't end up buying anything but had a good time anyway. I'm surprised I didn't see you there Allan! Place was crowded tho...

I went and had fun, didn't buy anything though. I did not perceive much of an Atari presence on the dealer's floor, but there was a 2600, Intellivision, Colecovision and a 5200 in the game room.

 

I was hoping to see some SNES and Genesis component cables from HD Retrovision. They had a monitors displayed showing the composite, S-Video and RGB signals from a SNES, but I did not see anything labeled as component.
