A once-annual games festival held in Nottingham, initially at various venues and then under the roof of the National Videogame Arcade, which I attended on a few occasions until 2016. Its diverse attractions included twin-screen gaming in the Old Market Square, immersive trails through the city and its caves, curated games showcases, and media involvement…

The endeavour was only halted by the late-night closure of Wimbledon station.

On this occasion we travelled from Waterloo East to London Bridge, backtracked to Victoria, visited the newly-opened King’s Cross Square and then proceeded to tour the Square Mile…
