    Louisville Arcade Expo (3/2-3/4)

    Anyone coming to the Louisville Arcade Expo this weekend (3/2-3/4)?

    http://www.arcaderx.com/

    It's always a good time! I will be bringing my Neo Geo (2 slot)...

    I'll probably rotate the carts a few times over the weekend, but Windjammers will get priority

    There will also be some folks there with some sweet Candy Cabs.

    I was there, didn't check this til now when I'm home. Had a good time. Didn't play too hot in the pinball tournament. Show was pretty cool though. Seemed like more pinball than arcade stuff this year. Some of the machines though are annoying as hell. They're practically unplayable but people brought like 5 worn out pinball machines with stupid prices on them. Is that really worth the effort?

    Yeah, this was kinda an off year...one of the local collectors (who usually brings about 40 or so games) was out of the country. I also felt like this year allot of folks only brought their junk games (left the good stuff at home).

    Not allot of Neo Geo cabs...only my mini (2 slot), my buddy's single slot, and another junk cab (with a single slot). I was tempted to bring my 6 slot, but that thing is a pain to move

    I still had a GREAT time and turned allot of folks on to Wind Jammers.

    I still thought it was a good mix of games, just seemed like it was decidedly more pinball than anything else. My only gripe is I wish the show was open later. That's when most people leave and you can walk around and play whatever you want.

    Don't get me wrong, it was a good time. Just not as good as previous years. I did get to meet a couple of Neo Geo nerds that live surprisingly close

    Whoa! I moved here to get away from neo folk. Two more local challengers to avoid now!

    Maybe we have enough people for a regular game night now?

    We should all go out for dinner or drinks one night to say hello.

    Awesome!

    I've never been to that expo actually. Maybe I can swing by that next year.

    I have been since the very first one in 2011 and I set up shop every year. It's a great show for playing and it was cool to see Mega Ran return. I wonder if any of you stopped by my booth. There is another little hidden gem show in the area (Huntington, WV) called Power Up that is a ton of fun!
