The only problem is that the Galaga cab is one of those 20th anniversary combo ones, so the screen & control stick throw me off.
    Flack would probably know more about it than I do though. As a matter of fact, he has a section on his website dedicated to the subject:

    The 12th is almost here so it's time for some firm plans. Let's make it 1:00 at Cactus Jacks. I'll wear a white SNU hat.

    Here's the website:

    http://www.cactusjacksokc.com/

    Cactus Jack's is located just north of NW 10th street on Council road, which is an exit off of I-40. The address is 1211 N. Council road.

    If you're going solely for classic games, you'll probably be disappointed. The last time I was there, there were only four or five classics left. Still, it's a fun place to check out, with lots of restaurants close by.

    I'll see everyone there. I'll be the crazy bald guy.

    edit: I'm bringing at least one friend (and possibly 2) who love to play games, too.

    I was there but I didn't see you. You don't happen to be the guy who grabbed the high score on Galaga, do you? There was only one other person that I saw play that game besides me.

    Yes that was me...in the white SNU hat.
    Were you the guy that played Galaga right before I did?
    What time did you leave? I stuck around until 2:55.

    I left at right around 3. I think I was the only other person that played Galaga (that I know of). I think you may have also been playing on a pin when I sat down at the Tales from the Crypt one. I had the bald head and was wearing a sweater.
    I was happy to see both Galaga and Robotron there, as well as a decent selection of pins. The place was also quite a bit larger than I had expected. Makes me wish we still had an arcade in Stillwater.

    I don't recall the name of it but yeah, I played one round on a pinball machine. I wish they had Apollo 13 pin, man. I never see those anymore. Unless someone else is on it, I usually go straight to the Galaga cab when I go to an arcade.

    OK, yeah. I didn't go, but I honestly thought it was cancelled and didn't check back with here after that. That sucks. I wouldn't have been able to go anyway though, since I broke my fuel pump in my car by running it out of gas. It's still in the shop....
    If you guys ever wanna do something else, let me know. We should probably plan it a little better though. The more notice, the easier it is to schedule. I know we are all busy people.

    It figures I'd find out about this site right after this happened. Haha.

    At any rate, I'm in Norman, Oklahoma.

    I live in the Tulsa area and I usually have Friday, Saturday and Sunday free. Although I do have to work Friday overtime on occasion.

    But I think it would be really cool to meet some fellow DP'ers. It would be cool to meet up at an arcade and just play some games and get aquainted.

    I think the only real Arcade left in the Tulsa area however, is Funhouse. But there is also Incredible Pizza... Not the best food, but LOTS of cool games. If anyone was interested we could meet up there and eat and play some games. Anyone interested?
    If a god is willing to prevent evil, but not able, then he is not omnipotent. If he is able, but not willing, then he must be malevolent. If he is both willing and able, then why is there evil? If he is neither able or willing then why call him a god?

    I just found a website we can use to track attendees. ImIn.com
    Seems pretty easy to use. If someone wants to take charge of the next get-together I think that website may help.

    Unfortunately I have not the time to actually organize something. Basically working two jobs with school.

    But if something gets arranged I'll be there with upmost certainty!

    Talking

    I just found this thread after looking for any info for the OVGE.. I'm thinking of going to the Texas Pinball event in Grapevine, TX in Mid-March...

    I've never been to OVGE, hopefully it can someday return...

    Anyhoo, I'm in South OKC, and maybe even could help in getting space to host a classic gaming/tourney event in the future... 'Coz right now at my workplace there is already the "Limey Dragon" which is a traditional games shop (pen & paper RPG, dice games, warhammer 40k and hordes tourneys, etc) and it is located off of S.E. 29th street (near Del City).. We might be able to clean/clear out the space next door for something, but, depending on the size, space, # of people, and area requirements (electrical, furnishings, which area to use, parking, etc), there may be / are some public access 'limitations' (if anyone is seriously thinking organization, etc, PM me and I will let you know what all there is to focus on)..

    It isn't fancy schmancy (unless it was all decked out, maybe ).. But the main thing is if it was for 1-2 days, I'm offering the space for free or almost free..
    But in anycase, I'm just throwing it out there possibly for future reference.. I'm usually pretty busy, but if something is planned I would like to make it at the least, and help out (volunteer) up to host it at the most.

    Thank you for the offer, Rifter. Welcome to DP.
    Unfortunately, we seem to have attracted only men who live in an iron lung and have not the ability to go outside and play.
    Seriously though, that would be great. All we would need is for everyone to pitch in and bring a couple things. A power strip or two, a vacuum cleaner, some Clorox wipes, and the cleanup will be taken care of. A few TV's, systems, games, pizza money, and we're ready to go.
    Do you have any spare tables or chairs to use?
    Maybe we can pitch in and hire Daft Punk to perform. That would be sweet. Anybody have a spare 20k laying around?

    HEHE ... Daft Punk would be awesome!

    Right now as far as tables/chairs go.. 1 oval conference table with like 12 chairs.. The limey dragon next door has alot of extra folding chairs and a couple of tables..

    Yeah, many of my friends are very busy and have family that likes to suck the fun out of their weekends

    Maybe when it gets a little warmer we can get SOMETHING going.. In the mean time I'll be gathering and hording a few games to show and tell until then.. hehe

    P.S. It would be cool to see a Sega CD or NES R.O.B. Robot .. I haven't seen any of those in awhile.. I'd especially like to check out Time Gal (Sega CD) again. I rented that game (& the Sega CD hardware to play it on) back when Sound Warehouse was still around.. (Sound warehouse/Soundtrack I forgot which )

    Sound Warehouse was awesome. (I think Soundtrack was a car audio store.) I have a lot of good memories of that place. I was a youngster and while my dad looked at music & movies, I'd read Garfield, Calvin and Hobbes, and play with the toys they sold. Good times. That place was on 39th & MacArthur, right?
    EDIT: Oh, and I have ROB. I tested him a couple years ago & he worked...but not very well. I think his gears are loose. He needs a rebuild...and I mean the special treatment:

    hehe.. Johnny 5 and R.O.B. look pretty much alike.. Nintendo should open up a robot repair shop....Wow, I never thought about it before today, but, I wonder whom (Nintendo, Sony or MS) would be the first to make an android that can play games too.. I'm betting Nin or Sony on that one..
