Put your fingers to the test in a gaming night for all the family
You’re languishing in 12th place when you realise you’re looking at the wrong half of the screen and your ten-year-old daughter is miles away in 7th, or maybe you’re being pummelled by your eight-year-old in the boxing ring… on your TV, of course.
Having a night in with children on your games console is great fun, and now, thanks to the great team at the Centre for Computing History, you can all have a night out, doing just the same thing, but with others too, all going back in time on the centre’s vast array of past tech, whether it be computers 30 years old or much more recent consoles.
On Family Gaming Night, which is on Saturday (7 May), 6 to 10pm, the centre will have even more computers available to make your digits sore with fun than usual.
Challenge your family members, or maybe challenge your neighbours (whether they live near you, or are your ‘neighbours’ on the night) to Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Tetris, or something more modern on a Wii, PS3, Xbox 360 or Xbox One.
When you’re taking a break from playing and talking about how technology has changed, the Pac Lunch Shop will be offering tea, coffee and snacks.
It’s bound to be a great night for all the family. Make sure you don’t miss it.
