    I will be there both days! Not a lot of spending money this time around, so I will have more time to bs, view the panels and play games. Not sure if Dirty Mikes and the boy will be there, but I see Gamegavel listed as a vendor, so that may be a place for a quick meet-up.

    So is there going to be an RGR presence at PRGE this weekend? I assume SoCal is no longer going, so are the plans for an RGR booth etc scrapped?

    I am pretty sure Socal is going for the RETRO magazine booth.

    UK and I wanted to go in the worst way but just could not get the time off to go. Those are great guys running PRGE and we want to support them!

    On Saturday, look for the guy with the "Minnesota: Twin Cities"(styled like GTA:Vice City) shirt. Because that's me.

    Tricky, sorry I missed you - I had to skip Sat and went Sun for a bit. Was a great show. I picked up the Intellivision Flashback, Coleco Flashback, and Atari Flashback 5. Keith was selling the special Blue Sky Rangers sleeves, so I had him sign one for me. Also picked up a Super Metroid play mat (large mouse pad). Arcade was great, all the vectors lined up in a row was pretty sweet. Met up with some of the local PAC (Portland Arcade Collectors) guys, sold a Bad Dudes control panel to a local guy. Was great.

    I wish I had more luggage storage to buy stuff there. The selection of obscure & cheap, as well as cheap+obscure was out of this world. Stuff I never even thought existed before was there.

    You mean SoCal Mike?

    It was great seeing everyone this past weekend. This show really was epic in size. I think the Pacific Northwest is the retro gaming Mecca My car broke down on the ride back and I am still stuck three hours south of Portland while my truck is getting fixed at a small town Ford dealership. They won't have it done until 4 PM on Tuesday so looks like I will have another hotel night tomorrow night. Post pics of your PRGE loot here. And, here is a list of what I scored!

    I did some shopping the day of setup and got a few handhelds for myself and FocusRS. I picked up:

    1) A beautiful Gakken Dig Dug - http://www.handheldmuseum.com/Gakken/DigDug.htm
    2) Electronic Cave Man - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79uzv7yKmpQ
    3) http://www.beppi.it/public/OthelloMu...ous-models.php
    4) A Legend Drink - Flask - http://www.inkwhiskey.com/products/drunk-hunt
    5) Lock N' Chase and Telebunny from Collectorvision - http://www.collectorvision.com/game-telebunny.htm , http://www.collectorvision.com/game-lnc.htm
    6) John Hancock's original Atari 2600 game - Game Panic - http://atariage.com/forums/topic/226...2600-homebrew/

    I got Willie a game he had when he was little that he never thought he would see again - http://www.handheldmuseum.com/Bandai/BlockOut.htm
