It's time for the first SC3 event of 2016! Our next Arcade Party will take place on Saturday, April 30, at 2084 Arcade, a private facility jam-packed with '80s arcade classics in Anaheim. The hours are 4 p.m. to midnight. If you attended last year's event at 2084, you know what to expect. The owners of 2084 are four Southern California coin-op collectors who combined their collections under one roof to recreate the games list of an early 80's arcade. Now they have nearly 100 classic machines, including a few pinballs, at a facility in Anaheim. 2084 has been hosting arcade get-togethers every few weeks for quite some time now, but on April 30 SC3 will be there with our complement of home consoles, game trading and other goodies.

This is SC3's second event at 2084 so we have a better lay of the land this time. 2084's a big enough place, but it's firmly packed with coin-ops. There's some space for home consoles but we have to go a little lighter than normal. Food will not be provided at this event, but there's a huge restaurant complex within walking distance. Trading is essential to the spirit of SC3 so we'll have plenty of space for it. All in all, this will be a typical SC3 event but with a heavier focus on arcade gaming than usual. The owners of 2084 are friends of ours and they're always improving the facility. We can't wait!

The April 30th party opens at 4 p.m. and lasts until 12 midnight. Home consoles will be stationed on the second floor of 2084 (just head up the stairs near the entryway) and the game trading area will be found in the parking lot directly outside. Bringing trade items? Please read our Tips for Traders.

Please note that food will not be provided at this event. There are many restaurants in the area, including many selections in the popular Packing District within walking distance.

Donations Are Appreciated!

With so many machines, electric bills are expected to be quite high. Your donations fund all SC3 events and are greatly appreciated. If all adult attendees chip in just $5, that should cover our expenses. Thank you!
