After a long, grueling search for an appropriate venue that was both available when we needed and not super expensive, we have succeeded! Sorry it took so long, but it wasn't for lack of effort. ZAPCON will take place April 6-7 at the Renaissance Phoenix Downtown Hotel. So now it's time to put your money where your mouth is… I'll be hitting up everyone who previously gave an "unofficial" pledge to bring down games for an "official" pledge. For those not in the loop, we need games to make the event successful. If you bring games you get in for free, and we promise to take good care of your property. If you want to participate by bringing down some (fully functional) games for the event, PM me with your name, phone number, email, and what arcade and/or pinball games you would like to bring. Our website, zapcon.com, should be up in the next couple weeks. We'll have more information there.
Somehow I had the good luck to also be asked to put together a segment about Atari's I, Robot for the virtual California Extreme Twitch Broadcast which you can check out here: CAX 2020 I, Robot Segment I also put together a level guide of sorts that shows you how to get through Levels 1-52: I, Robot Level Guide Happy Gaming!
I represent a group that is seriously looking into putting together a California Extreme style (though smaller) arcade & pinball convention in Phoenix, AZ. We already host an annual con (KoL Con) and we've been consulting with Dann Frank, one of the administrators of the Wild West Pinball Convention that took place back in the 90s, so we've got the chops to make this happen. Right now we're putting out feelers to see who'd be interested in attending, but more importantly who'd be willing to put up some of their pinball and/or arcade games for a weekend. Please let me know if you're interested and if so, how many games you could conceivably bring. Thanks, and If you know any other collectors please spread the word. Wes
