    Default OVGE 2014 coming August 9th, 2014 to Broken Arrow, OK!

    From the humble beginnings of small white blips on an oscilloscope to the mighty Atari 2600 VCS began a new form of entertainment that would change how people interact with their TVs, computers, phones, and eventually with each other. Now come back for a day to see how it all started and to once again live in your youth and share your fondest memories with Mario, Pac-Man, all your favorites including the adventure square! As IvoryTower Collections, All Your Base, and PJ Gamers are proud to present the:

    2014 Oklahoma Video Game Exhibition!

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Oklahoma's Original Retro Video Game Exhibition Returns

    TULSA, OK ľ Classic video games will return from history, as mid-America's one and only OVGE returns for the eleventh Oklahoma Video Game Exhibition!

    On August 9, 2014 video game collectors and enthusiasts from Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and even further will travel together to PJ Gamers in Broken Arrow to celebrate the history, hobby, collecting, and entertainment of the video gaming industry. ôBefore the OVGE, people from the surrounding states had to travel across the country for events such as this,ö said Jesse Hardesty, founder and organizer of the OVGE. "And since the very first OKGE back in September of 2003, we have inspired many other retro conventions in the surrounding areas."

    Come and celebrate a day of very family friendly competition, discussion, buying, selling, trading, and showing off of our beloved hobby on August 9th during the 11th annual OVGE!

    The new facility offers space for many new ideas and including the largest free play arcade the OVGE has seen yet!

    So please, visit the new website generously hosted by Earl Green at TheLogBook and send in those table requests! The new website has all the details for table pricing (our cheapest prices in several years), along with the event layout, and registration forms. August 9th will be here before we know it! We thank each and every one of you who have supported us and look forward to seeing you all at the PJ Gamers facility on August 9th!

    Default Win and arcade cabinet and help charity at the same time!

    Who wants to win their own fullsize arcade game?!

    For the first time in our 11 years, the OVGE is honored to be able to bring to you the chance to not only add something really cool to your collection and your home, but to also help a charitable cause in the process!

    That's right! You get to own your very own arcade game and help the poverty stricken children through Education in The Dominican Republic!

    "How do I win my very own arcade game!" You may ask? Easy, during the OVGE there will be raffle tickets available for purchase for $1 each. Yes...$1. You can buy as many as you want and increase your chances to win! Towards the end of the event on this coming Saturday, we will hold a drawing and pick the winning ticket and hopefully that lucky ticket belongs to you!

    If so you will be taking home a full upright Robocop arcade game originally released by Dataeast back in 1988.

    Here is some youtube video showing gameplay!

    Stay tuned for more details and pictures of the prize!

    Actually I took pictures tonight, but they sadly didn't come out and I will have to take them again. The game is currently on display at PJ Gamers! So feel free to stop by, take a look, and then put some money towards owning your own on Saturday!
