Back in March I was handed a letter from a colleague at work with the words “I think you’ll like this”. It was a letter and flyer from Gordon Sinclair about his event called Retro Reunited. Upon closer inspection as well as being right before my boyfriend’s birthday it was up in bloody Huddersfield! Us Londoners are certainly spoilt by gaming events.
This didn’t deter me, not only did the event celebrate the history of gaming and give attendees the chance to play a wide range of weird and wonderful games, but it was all in aid of the Charity Shelter. Not one to pass up an opportunity to be a geek for a good cause and do some good work for Ubisoft, I gave Gordon a call. I think I gave him a bit of a shock at first but we soon got chatting and over the next few months we arranged a space for me to take some of our TMNT themed games to play and I was also asked to do a talk on the history of Ubisoft
