Gaming extravaganza promised at Centre for Computing History


This Saturday (29th August), the Cambridge Centre for Computing History is planning an evening of family video gaming that you won't forget!


The Centre says: "We'll have more video games consoles and computers out for you to play than you can shake a stick at.

"Can you beat dad at Space Invaders, or mum at Pac-Man? Find out at our Family Gaming Night.

"We'll be opening at 6pm for a solid four hours of digital fun in a family friendly environment. There will be games that everyone can play, from retro classics like Pac-Man, Space Invaders and Tetris to some of the modern versions like Wii, PS3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

"It's a great chance for kids and parents to come together, share experiences, compete against each other and talk, talk, talk about how technology and gaming have changed over the years.  We'll also be providing you with achievement sheets - can you max out your Museum Gamerscore?

"We're very happy to be welcoming the guys from Ghost Town Games, a Cambridge-based indie studio, who will be showing off their four-player cooperative game Overcooked!  It's brilliant fun and you'll also be able to chat about creating games with two developers who are right in the thick of the action.

"The Pac Lunch shop will be open offering tea, coffee, cold drinks, chocolate, crisps and cereal bars to keep you going!"

The event starts at 6pm and finishes at 10pm.

Museum entry fees apply - £7 for adults, £5 for 5-16s, and under 5s are free.
