Gamers, prepare to get your geek on as the ultimate retro and board gaming festival returns to Portsmouth Guildhall this February, bigger and even better than before!
Guildhall Games Fest celebrates more than 40 years of gaming, from Pong and Pac Man to Mario and Minecraft, with an unbeatable selection of board games and retro games consoles.
This event is a collaboration between Portsmouth Guildhall, Dice Portsmouth and Game Over, building on the success of Comic Con 2018 and Guildhall Games Fest in August.
Play on every games console imaginable, from the Vectrex to the Game Cube, from Playstation 1 to Pong on the Binatone TV Master IV. Browse the library of hundreds of exciting board games to play, with dedicated staff members on hand to recommend a game for you and then teach you how to play it. Why not challenge your friends and family with 2-player games and compete in tournaments to be the Games Fest champion!
The event is open to all ages (under 14s to be accompanied by an adult). However there will also be an over 18s only boarding gaming room with pop-up bar!
We aim to cover all genres – from family classics such as monopoly and cluedo, to modern hits such as Dead of Winter, King of Tokyo and Sheriff of Nottiboangham.
Join us for Portsmouth’s leading Retro and Board Gaming festival!
