Bits & Pieces 2011 – Classic Gaming Expo – June 24-26

Posted in Uncategorized on February 17, 2011 by arcadelegacy

I am pleased to announce that Arcade legacy will be home to a new classic gaming expo in Cincinnati. Updates will be posted as things get added. Press release below:

The 2011 Bits and Pieces Classic Gaming Expo takes place June 24-26 at Arcade Legacy in Cincinnati, OH

Cincinnati, OH., February 2011 — Hundreds of classic home video game fans from around the
Tri-State and beyond will converge in Cincinnati this June for the 2011 Bits and Pieces Classic
Gaming Expo (BPCGE). Destined to become an annual event the expo will be held at Arcade Legacy, a haven for classic gaming lovers and fans of the arcade.

The Expo will feature a large area of free-play video game arcade machines, consoles, common areas for socializing and competitive gaming, organized tournaments, costume contests and plenty of classic video games for sale from our many vendors. Additionally, the expo will include auctions, door prizes and a performance from Cincinnati chiptune artist, Babyface Glasses (Ricky Henry from Shael Riley and the Double Ice Backfire.)

Several developers in attendance will be releasing new homebrew and authorized-reproduction
games at the Expo. Homebrews are newly released games for play on classic video game consoles.

The classic video gaming hobby is most closely associated with home consoles like the Atari
2600/5200/7800, Nintendo NES and SNES systems, Sega Master System/Genesis and other
game systems released in the 1980s and early 1990s. Expo attendees can expect to see and
play these and rarer systems at the Expo.

This is a 3 day event. Doors open at 12:00 noon.

Admission is $10 for adults and children over 10 or $30 for a family pass good
for up to five people.

Children 10 and under admitted free with paid adult admission.

Presale tickets will be available soon at or at Arcade Legacy Media Store

Vendor info and sign up coming soon.

Two events coming VERY soon that I have somehow forgotten to add to the events page. Both exciting in entirely different ways. First off we have an event that some have been waiting TEN years for:

Marvel vs Capcom 3 release day party and tournaments – Marvel vs Capcom 3

We will be opening at 2pm and the whole day will be dedicated to all things MARVEL VS CAPCOM. Tons of setups for MvC3 all day along with tournaments on ALL THREE MvC games! Click on the link above for all the details.

The next and just as exciting event is the first ever LAN party at the arcade! Ham-Lan and are teaming up with Arcade Legacy for this “event of epic proportions”. Head over to the CinciFrag web site here for details – Arcade LANgacy
