The room we were (under)using as a games room, while currently storage, will eventually become digifab. Last night we moved all the retro gaming setup out into the chillout lounge which has been pretty bare since covid.
We would love to retain all the gaming stuff, however it needs an owner. If this could be you, please put your hand up. To own this area it needs to go through a WAD process like the rest of the space:
- Do all the consoles and peripherals work
- Are they organised neatly in some kind of cabinet
- Are they all connected to the tv, maybe with a switcher or similar so that anyone can come in, turn it on and start playing.
If you are keen to take this on, you will have pretty free reign over the chillout lounge, to set it up however makes sense for you. We want to retain the artwork and members projects, and maybe put in new, more cleanable furniture. Everything else will be up to the volunteer who does the work.
If noone has put their hand up to manage this by the end of February, we will look into donating or disposing all the gaming gear.
Heres a shot of the area from last night.
