    Default California Extreme 2013 Arcade & Pinball expo

    California Extreme 2013

    July 13-14, 2013

    @ Hyatt Regency in Santa Clara, CA

    Arcades were once a fixture on the American urban landscape, and games were plentiful in rural cities too. The closest heir of today is the so-called "Family Entertainment Center", which is populated with a myriad of devices designed only to take your coins quickly and leave you with a pile of tickets, which you exchange for cheap, trashy toys. This is entertainment? California Extreme was born with a desire to share fun coin op games that are in the hands of private collectors, and to hopefully spread the word that pinball machines were once plentiful, and that videogames were not synonymous with "martial arts" and violence. Buy/sell/trade! The show is a great place to bring games you want to sell, and also a good place to add to your collection, or even start it! Not all games will be for sale; many collectors bring games to show (or show off!) that they would never sell. So .. Can I play the stuff? Yeah .. Everything is on free play. You can play from the moment you arrive until we shut off the power at closing -- Play as many games as you want, in whatever order you want to. There are *HUNDREDS* of games, all set to play for free. This is a your chance to try those older games, or the newer games that you'd never put money into in an arcade. There are also many games that never got produced, and are very hard to find.

    I just want to say how fantastic this expo is. I have not been able to go in awhile due to moving out of the state, but I recommend anyone who is able to go to do so. The amount of arcade and pinball games to play is STAGGERING. I thought that I died and went to heaven! Thumbs up from me!

    Default CAX Free entry!

    It' is a great event and I will be attending this year.

    Do you want to go, AND want to get in FREE? Then show up and volunteer like I will be doing. Help is needed for load-in (T,F) and load-out (Sun). They also need help during the show to man the desk and do other small jobs. The organizers need time to enjoy the show too ya know!

    Two hours volunteer time gets you in free for the day. See more info here:
