SubjectRetrogaming party suggestions? new Reply to this message
Posted bySnowball 2
Posted on11/07/10 11:53 PM



As I said earlier, I'm throwing a party where the whole theme is retrogaming. It's going to be effing awesome. I'm coming up with some ideas for games (not necessarily videogames) to play and ways to get the party involved.

Here's a couple things I had in mind:

- Blindfolded Marble Madness with someone instructing you where to roll.
- Videogame trivia - Probably going to give away one of the many games or systems I have as prize.
- Street Fighter Alpha 2 tournament
- Point Blank 2 drinking game - every time you lose a challenge, you drink.
- Space Harrier "king of the hill". Whoever makes it the furthest is king of the hill.

Any other ideas come to mind? Just watching people play old games is going to be boring. I want to make it competitive and entertaining.

Get some TMNT or X-Men (6p) beat-em-up co-up with competition going.
Whoever finish the game with most points (kills and less continues) gets a prize.

Sports games are cool to do competitions too, like International SuperStar Soccer on SNES or FIFA on Genesis.

I was thinking the same thing about the beat 'em up. I have a PC hooked up to my 40 inch LCD so I was wondering if MAME would do the full, widescreen version of the game on there.

I may be able to score more controllers for my PC. I use playstation controllers since I have a ton.

If you're giving away a system, I'd have it "Won" by a best of three contest, some trivia, game play with popular games on the system, and something else tied to the system so that whoever appreciated the system the best would get it.

I'd do something similar with the games, have people who actually know and are good at similar games win them, but not too much for one person, the more people who get goodies the better.

I'd think that having some themes about gaming, people playing games, BSing about the past and favorite gaming moments would be enjoyable.

Go through your collection and pick out a bunch a older games, a mix of obscure and relatively common.

Two people take turns. Show a screenshot and name the game. Name it correctly and you get to drink a shot. Fail and you eat a hot pepper.

If you have a spare old TV, you can put it on with footage from an old anime like Hell City Shinjuku (like in Johnny Mnemomic).

What would be cool (but probably not cheap) is if you could print some arcade cabinet artwork and put it on the walls. Instead, maybe you can find some material in the same color as the colors from cabinet art, and make colored stripes on the walls for a "futuristic 80's" look. Also, you can leave some old items lyong around, like video game magazines, cassette tapes, etc. If you have an old broken computer somewhere, it could decorate a corner.

As for activities, not sure if you had that in the US, but there used to be a TV show where contestants could with a NES if they finished the first level of SMB faster than anybody else, using only one life. You can have a competition with the same rules.; the level is not that hard and pretty short so everybody could have a go.

I'd go with the SMB one.
