    Cool. I'll be there (unless somethng comes up). I plan to bring some of my equipment and install it on PDF's table. I hope it helps out.

    BTW, the link in the press release still points to the old OKGE site and doesn't work (you may want to fix that).

    I guess I need to figure out what I'm bringing as I'm setting up this year.. so far I've got a C-One that will be tagging along with me, and possibly an Amiga 4000T. I'm trying to figure out what theme I should do.

    Just to let all of you know. I do NOT plan to exhibit this year. This will be the first time that I haven't brought stuff up and setup a table, but I will have tons of other stuff going on during the show. I simply won't have time to keep constant watch over my table.

    With that, I will still be bringing up the TVs for the classic game tourney as I always have each year and will be hosting that event as I have in the past.

    I also plan to bring up that new Frogger cab, provided I can get it fully operational. And if I bring that, then I might as well bring up the DC Kiosk ehh? At least with those two Items, I can sorta set them up and leave them be.

    As usual, I'll be waving the Odyssey2 flag with the usual rarities like the trackball, but I'll also be showing off some of the new homebrews and recently-unearthed gems like Shark Hunter and Spider-Man (and maybe even Tutankham if it's out by then).

    Also, I'll have a live running demo of Atari Video Music for everyone's psychedelic listening/viewing pleasure, and maybe a little bit of Famicom and Vectrex lovin' too. Plus the usual suspects, like the complete Coleco tabletop collection, retrogaming-related toys, and that video thing that everyone seems to like.

    Excellent!

    Hats off to Crossbow, for what will be another great show this year!

    Hopefully, I will be able to attend, it depends on my new job that starts Monday, June the 12th. (To bad I didn't take that job in Tulsa )

    I'm bumping this up a bit. So far on my table I've got a Commodore One to display, a couple CD32s probably, and various other C= stuff. I'm going to try to drag all my duplicate carts (200+) and wires/etc. I'm up for suggestions (look through the collection on my webpage). Last year I had an import theme - PC Engine Duo, Japanese Gamecube games, Brazillian SMS games, etc.

    I'm looking at going for the first time. I really wanted to go last year, but time and work wouldn't let me. Just trying to decide on the fly or drive option as it'll cost about the same with the way gas prices are.

    The tables are paid for...and I'm bringing company this time!

    DP's own AltairBoy is planning on being there to show off some of his collection of vintage (and working!) MITS Altair computers at the PDF tables, with at least one 8800 up and running with a game or two, and some vintage computer magazines dating back before Apple came along and revolutionized everything. Now there's something ya don't see every day.

    I'll have the usual Odyssey2 goodness, and if I can coax it into working again, the original Magnavox Odyssey (again, not something that you can get your paws on every day). There'll also be a real live working Atari Video Music there that you can try out hands-on (along with a nifty mix of game-related tunes and vintage 70s and 80s goodness), as well as the complete Coleco tabletop collection - all with batteries in 'em! - and all those great goodies in the PDF videogame memorabilia collection.

    If I can get it all put together in time, this year will see the premiere of a new expanded version of the PDF video loop that has proven so popular in years past - with possibly even as much as an extra half-hour of vintage game clips.

    Oh, and that's just the PDF table. Flack, icbrkr and quite a few others will be there, all with their own displays that are at least that cool.

    If all this isn't sounding tasty enough for you to head to Tulsa for a Saturday, then I don't know what is! Come on out and play some classics. That number again is O-V-G-E.

    I've been working on this all morning. I've got 3 tables - 2 tables for displays, and 1 table for stuff to sell. What I've got so far:

    Table 1:

    Amiga CD32 - Playing Gloom (by request of SteveW)
    Amiga CD32 - Playing Guardian and any shooters I have with me
    <empty spot>

    Table 2:

    Commodore One - Playing .. ? I need help here. I need a list of about 10 C64 games that would be a good "pick it up and play" game. I say 10 because the C-One's core isn't 100% compatbile and it might not work.

    Amiga 4000T - Playing ... ? I need an AGA title here to show off... again, quick "get into the game" sort of play. Also, if anyone wants to see a pretty loaded Amiga 4000T setup too, I'll break out of the game (it's a 4000 w/18MB, 5 disc CDROM changer, 24 bit video card, NIC, more).

    Commodore 64C - Playing .. ? Creatures 2 has always been a hit for the death scenes but I'm up for something else.

    Table 3:

    Everything from my store is coming along pretty much (epochgames.com) .. 2600, 7800, 5200, NES, SNES, TI, Genesis, more.. and a lot of accessories and stuff that aren't on my store (cauz I haven't added em in yet). Controllers, some TI parts, a Coleco Telestar pong machine, 3 or 4 Sun Sparcstations and anything else extra that I have lying around. I'm sure I'll add more stuff to my table before the date arrives.

    I'll put out the call that I usually do - anyone who's coming to OVGE and wants to see any Odyssey2 rarities, homebrews or repros that I have, just drop me a PM and I'll throw that game into the box to bring with me so you can try it out.

    For those of you who are on the fence about coming, COME ON OUT!!! Me, PDF, Icbrkr, AltairBoy, Pantechnicon ... good god, if hanging out with us cool dudes like us doesn't get you laid, what will!

    Ok, so maybe it won't help your sex life, but it's guaranteed to be a lot of fun. Many of us are going to be in town both Friday and Saturday nights, for those of you that wanna hook up for some grub and classic gaming conversation.

    Come on out!!!
