The Game Day

Held at the Hobby Bunker in Malden, the game day was made up of 3 game slots of 15 games being played in each. Jonathan and the lads go into what games they hooked into. Apart from the gaming, comes the shopping! As with any gaming event, they may have to tell their better half why there is no money left.
