Tournament: Adventure Game Pub Quiz
Tournament Winner: Unknown
Quite a lot of new faces at this one. We went with an adventure game theme and had the likes of Leisure Suit Larry, Monkey Island and Grange Hill out on display along with a healthy dose of all the regular favourites. Raffled off a boxed Acorn Electron.
To mix things up a little bit, Ian did an adventure game themed "pub quiz" in the main room.
Also! Retro Gamer's Kieren Hawken came along and filmed some of the evening, you can check out his video here:
Due to popular demand the Cambridge B Movie Festival is back again and we'll be there supplying retro entertainment throughout the weekend in our very own little on-site Retro Room featuring a whole host of retro video games and consoles. It's taking place at the Junction, Cambridge from the 19th - 21st August 2016. Grab a ticket and get yourself down there!

Tournament: Mario Tennis - Doubles (N64)
Tournament Winner: David & Andy
This was the 2016 summer edition of the Retro Video Game Night and there's no better way to spend a summer's evening than in a dimly lit museum drinking beer and playing old video games! We got out a few classic "summer" games including Track & Field 2 on the MSX and California Games on the Sega Master System.
Ian pulled out all the stops with his doubles tournament on Mario Tennis and one lucky raffle winner walked away with a BBC Master.
It's a great day for the British IBM, we're finally in a video game! Stuart Johns over at My Acorn Electron has just released Space Grab for the Acorn Electron and it can be downloaded from the site here completely free:
