Reminder – Rochester Game Room Show this weekend

April 10, 2008

This is just a friendly reminder that the Rochester, NY Game Room Show will be happening this weekend. I have been busy getting ready for the show! I will be there and will have plenty of pictures and video to report back with after the show.

The show will feature a new fleamarket area, games available for purchase and for free play and everything you need for your home gameroom or arcade! 12$ admission at the door (its a cheap price for the amount of games they have to play!).

First details on Rochester Game Room Show Emerge

 Gameroomshow

The Rochester Game Room show is a local buy and sell event of all game room equipment including arcade games and pinball machines. You can also come just to play the games, they have entertainment for everyone. It is located in Rochester, NY. In addition to these items they have pretty much everything else you would want to buy for a home game room, a huge variety of items. They also have a pinball tournament hosted by P3.

I attended last years show and it was very good, it was everything it promised to be and I was not disappointed at all. Last year they had over 325 pinball and arcade games available for play so its quite a sizable show and it is totally worth attending. I will be attending the event this year and I will have full coverage for my readers when the show actually happens. I will also keep you updated with any further details. This year the show will happen in a new location with natural lights so bright overhead lights do not get in the way. This was a complaint of many guests and it has been addressed for this years show. Here are the details known about the show so far:

Date: April 11-13 2008

Location: Rochester Armory

900 East Main Street

Rochester NY 14605

Pixel Party – Art for the game room or personal wear

December 13, 2007

I’m always interested in finding something to spruce up the game room or arcade. These pieces of art from Pixel Party at Etsy.com seem to do the job, especially if you hold any affection for Pac-Man or Mario. There are also a few NES related items there too (which technically showed up in arcades due to Nintendo’s PlayChoice systems back in the day).

When a game room becomes an arcade

July 14, 2007

While I don’t often post about game rooms I think this one is worthy enough for it as this guy has so many games that it’s more of an arcade than a game room. In fact I think he has three times as many arcades as one of my local mall arcades. They are all classics of course so if you were in this place it would feel like going back to an 80’s arcade. I especially love the look of the room when the lights are off, giving way to nothing but arcade lighting for that authentic retro feel. Hit the link below to check out the room in it’s entirety.
