Mark your calendar – March 4-6, 2011 – www.arcaderx.com.
I’ve never known Louisville to host such an event, so I’m super-stoked that the arcade preservation/collection/playing hobby is gaining some local coverage. I’m definitely going to be attending with camera in hand to capture everything that is going on at the expo. I hope to run into some friends and local collectors and get some play time in as well.
Looks like they’re setting up for a pinball tournament, hosting a lot of classic consoles, and are also allowing people to bring games to sell, which is a nice perk. It is sometimes (very) hard to get a good audience of potential buyers for a specific game, so this could be a good opportunity to price something to move. If you bring a game and set it on free play, then admission is free for the day as well. That’s a pretty sweet deal, but I doubt I’ll want to haul a game out of the basement and back… it takes a lot for me to want to yank something out once it finds its place… LOL.
Post up if you’re planning on attending and what day you might be thinking about going. It’d be cool for some fellow collectors/appreciators to meet up, if possible.
