Sunday 20 June saw the First Basque Radofin 1292 Tournament. Five players gathered in Bilbao, Basque Country, in the pub called “Bar Barria” in Santutxu. The owner of the pub is kind enough to allow them to meet there to play their retroconsoles and retrocomputers.
The Radofin console is very similar to the Interton but the cartridges are different and the players have different games for each, so they plan to organize tournaments of both. During this tournament they played Spider’s Web, Invaders, Air/Sea Battle, Olympics (football), and Grand Prix. Luis was the best and most regular player, achieving several partial victories. The results:
Classification of the First Basque Radofin 1292 Tournament
1-Luis Getxo 21 points (Basque Country)
2-Egoitz Campo 17 points (Basque Country)
3-Javi Cetina 17 points (Basque Country)
4-Monica Vaqueiro 14 points (Basque Country)
5-Daniel Barrientos 10 points (Basque Country)
6-Alberto Romero 9 points (Basque Country)
They plan to return for another Radofin tournament, possibly with a different format, in December 2021. I must say that it is great to see these consoles and games being used in tournaments. Wouldn’t it be terrific if a few other groups did this, then we could organise an international tournament.
