Let's Play Gaming Expo 2016 JUNE 18 and 19- THIS WEEKEND
« on: June 16, 2016, 12:29:12 am »
Posted this over on KLOV but realized I was an oaf and it had not been posted here (POSTED THIS UNDER GENERAL AS WELL).

Just thought I would plug this. We'll be there this year again with the arcade. Hope to have a 100+ working games this year.

SINCE last year, added Astron Belt, Galaxy Ranger, Tailgunner, dedicated Wild Gunman, Sea Raider, Stunt Pilot, Tapper, Ninja Warriors, Dig Dug, TRON, Frogger, Vanguard, Liberator, Starship 1, Star Trek TOS upright,  Guwange, Death Race, In the Hunt, , Turkey Shoot, and a bunch more I'm forgetting. Our total should rise from 78 last year to over 100 this year (including 8 pins I believe). Most of the Rogue Synapse homebrews will be there including STARFIGHTER (the TOS sim will not be there this year as it's being built into it's final enormous cabinet). There are customs/skins as well including Splatterhouse, Evil Dead pin, Guwange, Wild Gunman, and Ultraman.

The contests this year include Galaga. The high score for the weekend WALKS AWAY with a cabaret GALAGA (60-in-1). Awesome little machine recently shopped out.
THAT'S RIGHT, THE HIGH SCORE WILL WIN A 60-IN-ONE CABARET SKINNED AS GALAGA. Was tempted to add the little guy to my collection when completed . . .

JOHN NEWCOMER will be there speaking and will oversee a head-to-head Joust competition, perhaps challenging the victor to a game. Pretty damn cool! We will have (hopefully) 2 tournament upright Jousts, Joust cocktail, Joust 2 and Joust pinball. That makes 5 titles of his there (Joust, Joust 2, Sinistar, Turkey Shoot, and Narc).

Tons of console stuff, board games, vendors, and cosplay as well.

Here is a link to a walkthru from last year. Most all the games shown will be there (a few have gone down this week and are problematic, Black Tiger will not be back as this was last years prize).

Come find us in the arcade if you get a chance to drop by the expo. Many of the attendees are console crowd so we'd love to add more arcaders to the mix.
