The MSX fair Nijmegen returns on March the 26th of 2022 for everyone to join in. Held in the Netherlands, but open to people from everywhere, the fair connects MSX users world-wide. Even during these troublesome Covid'19 times, the MSX Fair Nijmegen holds ground and celebrates 8-bit madness. Pin the date, now.

It's a thing, for sure. The annual MSX fair in, or close to, Nijmegen in the Netherlands opens for another episode. This Dutch fair attracts a wide audience of MSX lovers from all over the globe. It is a social gathering of MSX geeks reminiscing good times about the 8-bit machine that wrapped its tail around their necks and melted hearts. During the MSX Fair Nijmegen you can meet-up with other MSX fans, join activities, buy or even sell goods, have your computer fixed, zip a tonic, share stories, code some bits, talk about old machines, or showing-of your knowledge during the MSX quiz. It's all there, it's all beautiful.

Organized by Manuel Bilderbeek, the 2022's fair will be held on Saturday the 26th of March in "Dorpshuis De Lèghe Polder" in Beuningen, a village close to Nijmegen. It opens for visitors at 10:00 and runs until 18:00 hours. Knowing the scene, fun won't stop there. For more information about the fair, hiring a table, being a sponsor, planning your route, or stay for diner, please visit Manuel his dedicated MSX Fair Nijmegen web-site.

You know the saying: be there or be square.

Booked the rooms at the Mercure.
At the moment there is still a Black Friday discount, which makes the money investment a little more bearable. Smile

Our great leader Boris of the Johnson has told me I need more pricks, nice eh? I love my MSX and playing the retro games, but I ain't playing this game. Health reasons.

Hi all, I am in the middle of moving to a new place, and the boxes with my MSX's are nowere to be found! I am leaving today, and I planned to bring a MSX there to show the racing game I am working on...

I will bring a CRT with me, however. If anyone can lend me a MSX-compatible device where I can plug a megaflash, I'd appreciate it!

Alternatively, I aimed to purchase a japanese MSX1, so if anyone wants to sell me one, this would also solve my problem.

Thanks! I'm looking forward to the meeting!

Thanks for the pictures guys and thanks all for a nice meeting. We (FutureDisk) had a lot of fun. I want to thank you all for the very nice reactions after being absent for 22 years. It was heart warming to hear some people say they liked the feeling they had when a new FutureDisk dropped on their doormat; they brought it up when buying a new one! Thanks a lot guys, it was a rough ride getting this one finished, but we succeeded and after all it was worth it.
