This Weekend: Socal Retro Gaming Expo

Socal Retro Gaming Expo Promises 8bit Fun, Arcade Games, Retro Tournaments, and More at Frank and Sons

This weekend we’ll be visiting Frank and Sons in the City of Industry for their Socal Retro Gaming Expo.  It looks like a ton of fun!  We’re also hoping for good air conditioning to keep those retro consoles nice and cool, but this is Frank and Sons…

There’s a Retro Gameathon going on (possibly?) both days.  As of today, the games haven’t been posted.  If Galaga is one of them, I’ll be entering.  Otherwise, we’ll leave it to the Retro Gaming experts.  For everyone else, the expo promises free arcade games with admission.  There are also quite a few vendors selling Retro Gaming items including games, consoles, and collectibles.  Bring cash!

The Retro Gaming Expo has a full panel schedule of guests discussing retro games throughout the weekend. Want to learn about retro consoles, gaming history, or retro gaming trivia?  There’s panels for all of that!
