Norwich Amiga Group - News & Events



Venue: One Life Left - Norwich Gaming Cafe, 21 St Benedict's Street, Norwich, NR2 4PF

Date: Tuesday, 3rd July 2018, 18:00 - 21:30 (SWOS starts at approx 19:30)


Norwich Amiga Group invites you to their next community meet on 3rd July, for the first time at One Life Left!

Everyone is welcome to come along and support this free event. We'd love to help grow this retro community and are looking forward to seeing new faces coming along to join in and meet the regulars.

The group will be setting up Amiga hardware at the cafe for the evening - expect a strong hit of nostalgia on the night!

We'll also be hosting a casual Sensible Soccer tournament! This is just for fun but should give people a taste of some potential high-stakes events for the future! We expect to start this around 7:30pm so no rush for those people getting off work.

Over 18s after 6pm as alcohol will be on sale.


Facebook event here


If you're in the area at the time, please feel free to come and join us. I hope we'll be able to get a few machines set up with different things on them for people to play. It should be a fun evening with the potential of more regular events in the future should it go well. Come and say hi, grab a drink and beat us at a few games.

Too bad I've go to redo the roof on my house this year. I'll try to fit a vacation in the UK next years. Being a Canadian I've got to visit at least one of the founding nation, france being the other (maybe the year after that). Would love to go to those AUG and swap meet.

(Could a kind moderator change the thread title to 'Norwich Amiga Group - news and events' please? I'll use this one thread for everything...)

We've got another meet. Same venue and time as the last event, on Thursday 16th August. Facebook event link

We should have several machines available to play - my CD32 will be there and we should have an A600 and an A1200 as well, at least - and plenty of multiplayer games to try (Four or five-player Dynablaster is on the list). We also take requests, and if anyone has any software or hardware they'd like to come and show off, then by all means do so.

If you're in the area, come along and say hi, and have a game or two. It's free entry but as One Life Left have kindly let us have use of their cafe for free, I'd urge everyone to buy a drink to help cover their own costs and show support for such an excellent venue.

Here's a brief video summary of the last meet, in the meantime: [ Show youtube player ]


And some photos on Facebook.

Well the second event last week was definitely a success. 15 people attended and there was five machines out to play with (two A1200s and CD32s, as well as an A600 - there was also an A500 which had wouldn't give a proper picture). Plenty of games and demos on show. Four-player Dynablaster was a real highlight. We even managed to help identify a hardware issue (someone brought some joysticks with them that wouldn't work properly on their A500 - we got them to work so looks like an Amiga issue there). A really good time was had by all.

Some pics here (I took them which is why they aren't really very good).


We've already got a third meet booked in - the same venue again, this time on Sunday 9th September from 16:30 until 22:00 (potentially!).

Quick bump for the third meetup happening this weekend...


Facebook event is here if you're on it.


As mentioned above, we're at the One Life Left Cafe once again from 16:30 until 22:00 (if indeed we need that long).


As usual - it's free entry and open to all. People can bring hardware, software, magazines etc as they please, or they can just turn up for a quick drink and a chat with new people. We should also be able to play linked-up games this time which will be fun (pics to follow of that, should we get it to work...!).



If you're in the area or know anybody who is... then do come and say hi, we don't bite, honestly.

Thanks to EAB user matburton who very kindly PM'd me prior to the event with his install of Super Skidmarks so we could play it linked up. Unfortunately we didn't have a link cable at the meet in the end, but we've kept the game for next time.


Next meet is Tuesday 9th October at 17:30-21:30. We should be holding a big Dynablaster tournament too.
