    Default Official 2012 Portland Retro Gaming Expo thread - Sept. 29-30

    We can hardly believe it, but it's our 7th year of the Portland Retro Gaming Expo in beautiful Portland, Oregon. Here's the big news for 2012:

    • PRGE has moved to the Oregon Convention Center! The main show floor will be in a massive 60,000 square foot hall with the speakers and panels taking place in two separate auditoriums just outside the main hall. The venue is more the three times the size of the Doubletree last year and is fully cllimate controlled to eliminate that glorious geek-stank we enjoyed so much last year.
    • PRGE, in cooperation with Ground Kontrol Classic Arcade, introduces Mega-Cade - a 20,000 square foot zone of full-size arcade and pinball machines - all set to freeplay.
    • Main show floor with be open until 7:00 PM on Saturday - vendors and all!
    • Main show floor will close down between 7:00 and 9:00 on Saturday during the live auction, but will reopen for an after-hours party in the Mega-Cade sponsored by Ground Kontrol for those 21 and up. Features musical entertainment, snacks and a cash bar.



    As always, PRGE is right on Portland's famous light rail line and close by several hotels.

    Tickets just went on sale and we are continuing our tradition of 1 hour early admission for presale badge holders. We have no idea what kind of demand we are going to see this year by moving to the Convention Center so you may want to reserve your passes early.

    This will be the year for anyone to attend this show. Two things: I am assisting on a special project to be showcased at the show. Details in the weeks to come. I also scored a very large lot of Nes loose carts(650 different) and will be selling a large portion of the best of these at the PRGE show. The table will be setup at classics. At this time both things are for the the show exclusively so neither will be sold early. Just a heads up for collectors who are looking to fill in some NES holes in the collection.

    I am happy to announce a new 2600 homebrew and show exclusive for PRGE 2012. The game was programmed by a good friend of mine, Chris Trimiew. I assisted in the project and am happy to see its completion. Road Warriors Survival Edition will be limited to 41 numbered copies and have some crazy packaging.
