RGC 2013 in Meaux (Paris - France) - October 26th & 27th
« on: June 13, 2013, 17:02:50 PM »
Hello,

Guys I'm just posting a 'Save the date' for the RGC 2013. 

The RGC 2013 will be held on October 26th and 27th. The RGC is a retro gaming convention in France (Meaux in the near of Paris).

You will be able to see tons of hardware and software all in free to play. But also take part to a retro gaming tournament of three games (1 one player, 1 two player versus, 1 four players).

But We will also have a conference on the history of video gaming, presentation of projects, and special stands as we do celebrate quite a few anniversary this year.
 
That being aid I would like to see more foreigner at our convention. This year for the AC we got 7 foreigner out of 70 participants (10 % of the total).

That is why I'm posting this poll in order to know why you would come or not.

If you wish to see more here are a few videos.

Personally for me its to far to justify, if i was able to book a family holiday its something i might consider but doubtful at the moment.

Good luck and and promo help please let us know.

Actually the idea was more to propose you a ONe week-end package from Wednesday until tuesday
- Hotel
- historical visit of Paris
- Shopping in the two video games shops area of Paris (prepare lots of money)
- Shopping for girls (hle I'll be in video games with the boys)
- Byke tour in Paris
- The week-end at the convention
- one or Two diner in typical Parisian restaurant
- other surpri. . . . .
se if enough people is interessed

Unfortunately many people in the Jaguar community seem to think I am some kind of super villain who has the power to control people with my mind, magically create pirated versions of other people's games and post on forums where I am not a member.

I was banned from Atari Age for daring to have an honest opinion, that is the only thing I am guilty of.

I actually love the idea, have you spread your idea elsewhere.. Certainly cant afford it 2013 but maybe something for a weekend on 2014 is numbers and costs were good.

I did not spread the idea elsewhere but I will seeing how fast the registration goes when we open it... Last year in one week all places where gone...

I would like to welcome more people from abroad and I need to know where I can post it. Can you recommend me to website or Forums. I know I can find them on Google but I think you may know them better that me and judge which one I should really use.

@ The Laird > The RGC is not only the Jaguar commuinity most of us even don't know you matybe 3 or 5 people will know of this story and so what ? we will 250 I think you will even not see them.. Beside for experience some people are asshole on Forums are very nice in the real life... So take the red pill and welcome in the Real world..... :25:
PS: this is a ridicoulus attempt to be funny please do not inslult, bann, or send virus to this poor boy

Retro Gamer forum might be a good place to post about it, they have a pinned events thread in the off topic section.
