Bespoke Retro Video Game Party

Whatever the occasion, get your friends together and YouNeek Games will come to you and host your very own personalised video game party. You choose the games and we will construct a competition to keep you and your friends thoroughly entertained.  You'll be laughing until the very end when we crown The Ultimate Retro Gamer.

You don't have to be a 'gamer' to play. These pick up and play classics can be enjoyed by everyone. The trick is to keep your cool and hold your nerve with the pressure of your friends upon you! Alternatively, you can just play for fun for as long as you like, we can turn up, set up and the rest is down to you.

12 game competition walk through

Our most popular package. An 8 player tournament with 12 games takes approximately 4hrs.

The perfect excuse for you and your friends to get together for a few beers and pizza and compete against each other with those nostalgic games of your youth.

This is a walk through explaining how the event is played through using a selection of our more popular games. These games can be swapped out for any other games of your choice.

 

Game Rules

There are a total of 12 rounds. Each game is a round. The better you do at the game the more points you receive. The points are tallied up at the end of each round and added to the leader board. If a round finishes in a tie or we have any unresolved issues it can be settled with a game of pong often reffered to as ''a pong off''. The final round is worth double points. When tallying up the scores on the leaderboard if 2 players have tied the player coming from the lower postion goes ahead. The player finishing with the most points wins.

Here are the 12 games to be played stacked up on our peronalised interchangable chalk score board.

 

  1. Sonic The Hedgehog - MegaDrive
  2. Micro Machines - MegaDrive
  3. Time Crisis - PS1
  4. Super Bomberman- SNES
  5. Destruction Derby 2 - PS1
  6. Duck Hunt - NES
  7. Pac-Man - Arcade
  8. Goldeneye - N64
  9. Street Fighter 2 Turbo - SNES
  10. FIFA 98 - PS1
  11. Super Mario Bros. - NES
  12. Mariokart 64 - N64

The results are recorded as you play. When finished the results are tallied up and the corrisponding points are added to the leader board. if scores are tied on the leader board the player coming up from a lower postion takes the higher spot.

Your place on the leader board at the start of each round determines what posistion you play for that round. This can be a huge advantage for those at the lower end of the table learning from others mistakes.
