IMG_444412th October 2014 saw Play Expo host the grand final of the UK’s first ever national tournament to find the best retro gamer in the land! All ten winners of the national heats faced one another in a series of challenges until the overall champion was crowned.

The format for the final differed from the heats, although the majority of games were familiar. The first round gave each player two attempts each on ten games from the original line-up of 15 CGC titles.For more pictures from the Manchester, check out the GRAND FINAL page.
