Here is some news regarding a big event that is coming up next week in New Hampshire – the 9th Annual International Classic Game Tournament. While the event primarily focuses on classic coin-op arcades and pinball machines, they are also going to hold tournaments on some classic Atari 2600 games as well. This event is being co-sponsored by Funspot and the American Classic Arcade Museum and as such attendees will be able to play from 200 different classic arcades! On top of the competitions that will be held (with cash prizes of course EDIT: and hosted by Twin Galaxies referees), Ralph Baer will be attending the event on June 2nd from 3:30PM to 7PM.
The event will begin on May 31st and will run until June 3rd for a total of four days of classic gaming goodness. It will take place at the Funspot Family Entertainment Center in Weirs Beach, NH, which claims to be the largest arcade in the world (from the pictures of it, that looks like it could be true). Admission is $30, click on the links below for extra details.
