Er... We're A Bit Late: Nottingham GameCity

I've been meaning to blog about this all week, but with the preparation for The Road Trip (i.e. Trying to find my copy of Munchkin), I haven't had time. And now it's almost too late. The key word, being "almost". It's the last day of GameCity 3 in Nottingham today, so anyone in the area of the home of Rock City could pop into by any of the following events...

(Well, most of them - some of them require a festival pass, apparently)


Gatecrasher -
11:00 - Building LEGO Batman
11:30 - I was there…. DMA
14:00 - GameCity Vision Statement supported by BAFTA : Media Molecule
16:00 - Save the Videogame : The Manifesto launch

12:30 - 1:45 - The Curry Sessions #3: Tom Armitage : If Gamers ran the World

18:00 - 20:00 - Guardian Games Blog Closing Quiz

Market Square

10:00 -LEGO Brick-a-thon : Build a Better Batmobile
Guinness World of Records : The Videogame (all-day)

14:00 - Luigi 25th Birthday Tea Party, with very special guests…

Malt Cross

11:00- Indiecade

12:30 - Indiecade Artists Salon


10:00 - 12:00 - What’s it like to work in videogames?
12:00 - 15:00 - Who’s afraid of videogames?

Britannia Ballroom

20:00 - late
sponsored by Monumental Games

Which all sounds more fun than being stuck on a plane with Walker, let me tell you.

I've just had a thought though - if you were going to run a one day gaming event... what would you do? Where would you have it? Who would you invite? Would you run an enormous LAN event, some serious discussions or a whole lot of shouting in a darkened cellar?
