Anyone going along this year? I went to the first two and I feel like the addition of traders on top of the cabinets, pinball and the computer/console history section made the whole thing far too cramped for the limited space it takes place in.

Not to mention that I found the traders to be a bit disorganised, a lot of the tables were a mess (although the craft based ones were generally nicely taken care of) and the prices were more than a touch on the high side for me, for the stuff that actually was priced. Obviously there's nothing the organisers can do about that but it's hard not to notice when a large amount of the space is devoted to them. Maybe it's just that I'm still seething inside after seeing someone part with the best part of a tenner for a copy of Sonic 1 for the Megadrive.

On the other hand though, I really like Juno First.

I'll insist on the traders stacking games uniformly and having them in alphabetical order :-)

On a serious note, like you say, I have no control over the traders and how they keep their stall or do their pricing. One thing I can say is though, there are twice the amount of game/console traders this year so prices should be more competitive as they compete for your business.

I agree on the space issue in the first row. I'll make adjustments this year.

I think Juno First is going to be there again this year :-)

I think it's great some like this is happening for the third year in a row in the north east, I'm sick of travelling for events like this, good on you sir for pulling this off, I know many people going for the traders as much as the cabs.

Have you had any thoughts about doing some NERG merch ? Plain t shirts NERG logo would be nice...

I'm selling this year too for the first time.
