GUILDHALL GAMES FEST
Guildhall Square, Portsmouth PO1 2AB, UK
Gamers, prepare to get your geek on as the ultimate retro and board gaming festival comes to Portsmouth Guildhall in August.
Guildhall Games Fest celebrates more than 40 years of gaming, from Pong and Pac Man to Mario and Minecraft, with an unbeatable selection of board games and retro games consoles to play on.
This new event is a collaboration between Portsmouth Guildhall, Dice Portsmouth and Game Over. All organisations that were integral to the organisation of the hugely successful Portsmouth Comic Con earlier on in 2018.
You will be able to play your friends on every single games console imaginable, from the Vectrex to the Game Cube, from Playstation 1 to Pong on the Binatone TV Master IV. There is also a library of hundreds of exciting board games to play, with dedicated staff members on hand to recommend a game for you and then teach you how to play it. Alternatively just grab a seat, browse the shelves for a game and get cracking!
We aim to cover all genres - from family classics such as monopoly and cluedo, to modern hits such as Dead of Winter, King of Tokyo and Sheriff of Nottiboangham. In fact we welcome any suggestions today from our backers and will be constantly adding new games to the library once we open.
Join us for Portsmouth’s leading Retro and Board Gaming festival!
