Last Sunday saw the premier get-together of StreetPass Uk’s latest meetup group, 3DSBlessed’s very own StreetPass London! Taking place at the Royal Festival Hall, this event was attended by no less than 24 attendees willing to come on down and get their 3DS on for the day.
StreetPass London co-founders Max Maslen and Tareq Ashry hosted a popular Mario Kart tournament, where top prizes were a Pikachu and Birdo plush, with runners up nabbing Moshi Monsters 3DS kits and Monster Hunter badges. In the end the Pikachu plushie went to a young attendee called Kieran, and Birdo to Suz (an old friend of the 3DSBlessed crew). Congratulations to all our winners!
Other games played on the day included the usual suspects, such as Pokémon X/Y. Myself and SonicLondon colleague ShimmyShammy even got stuck in to a round of Tekken 3D! Towards the end Max Maslen took attendees on a trip down memory lane with some classic DS multiplayer shenanigans, hosting games of Bomberman and Tetris. As with the Mario Kart tournament these went down a storm.
Among the attendees was Angela Aquilina, who is heavily involved in running the Monster Hunter Community UK, and Velocity, who runs the gamesbeacon gaming events website. We would like to thank all our guests for making the effort to come down, and hope to see you all at the next one.
