Play Expo Blackpool 2016 Gallery

This is the gallery from the 2016 Play Expo event held at the Norcalympia in Blackpool between April 30th & May 2nd. JoypadAndMe have been to many of the Replay Events expo’s and seen them grow and evolve over the years. The Blackpool event is placed well in the events calendar and attracts many fans of retro consoles, arcade machines as well as pinball tables and cosplay. As always there were plenty of varied consoles from the classic NES to some more obscure ones that retro fans may not have heard of before let alone got their hands on to try out. That’s the beauty of the Replay Events, you can come along and try out all manner of gaming paraphernalia and all you have to pay is the price of admission. What more can you ask for.
