    2010 Portland Retro Gaming Expo

    The 2010 Portland Retro Gaming Expo takes place September 18-19 at the
    Crowne Plaza Hotel in Portland’s Lloyd District

    Portland, Ore., August 2010 -- Hundreds of classic home video game fans from around the
    Northwest and beyond will converge on Portland this September 18-19 for the 2010 Portland
    Retro Gaming Expo (PRGE). Celebrating its fifth year, the PRGE has expanded into an
    additional room at the Crowne Plaza Hotel near downtown in Portland’s Lloyd District.

    The Expo will feature a large area of free-play video game consoles, full-size classic arcade
    machines, a classic video game “museum”, common areas for socializing and competitive
    gaming, organized tournaments and plenty of classic video games for sale from our many
    vendors.

    The expo keynote will be given my Portland’s Robin Mihara, third-place winner of the 1990
    Nintendo World Championships and producer of a film examining modern Tetris competition.
    Additionally, the Expo will include contests, door prizes and a live “video game geek trivia
    contest”.

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

    Doors open at 9:00 AM on Saturday for presale ticket holders and 10:00 AM for admissions
    purchased the day of the show. Individual admission is $15 for a weekend pass or $10 for a
    daily pass. Family passes are also available for $45 and $30 (good for up to five family
    members). Children 10 and under admitted free with each paid adult admission.

    So who all is going? Anyone? This sounds like a blast
