Due to a naming conflict, the official name of the show has been changed to Video Game Trader Expo (VGTXPO). The new website is www.vgtxpo.com. I also correct some of the original details of the show. The full press release is below.

I'll be there.. your pre registration is a good deal indeed. $20 bucks get you entrance, raffle ticket, 13 chinese auction tickets, and 1 year subscription to magazine!

 

I'd like to register for a table.. are they still available? ... I think I'd like to debut one of my new Atari 2600 games at the show! It's only Aug 1st.. can I still get the prepay rate? I'd have paid yesterday had I seen this. I can also come early and help you guys setup AND my friend might be available to help also.

You are in luck. I didn't change any of the paypal links yet so it will still let you pay at the $20 rate. However, I am going to change these ASAP. If you are going to release a game at the show, please give me details so I can promote that.

 

Thanks.

Hello all,

 

At the Video Game Trader Expo, everyone will have a chance to "bid" on some great gaming goodness at the Chinese Auction.

 

Here's how it works. Your paid admission gets you tickets (you can also purchase more tickets at the ticket booth). You can then use these tickets to "bid" on the items you want. Each ticket is one bid. Each hour, we will randomly select a ticket and call out that number. Whomever has the ticket, is the winner. Please note that you must be present to win.

 

The following items are confirmed at the Chinese Auction:

 

1) Bakugan Battle Brawlers (Brand New & Sealed) for the Nintendo DS

 

2) Fail Safe (Brand New Homebrew Release) w/ instruction manual for the Atari 7800

 

3) Suicide Mission (Complete in box) for the Atari 2600 Supercharger

 

4) FC Mobile II (Brand New in box) Mobile NES Game System

 

5) Xbox Game Manager by APC

 

Don't forget, we are also raffling off a brand new Playstation 3 system, and we have a special raffle planned for Pre-Registration.

 

Stay tuned for more Chinese auction items.

Just to let people know I'm afraid I won't be at the show.. I'm very sorry about this. You are welcome to give my table to whoever needs it.. as I've already paid for a table, I hope it can be given away to someone who needs it for free.

 

The main reason is it's Friday the 15th, the show is approaching very soon. I am working on wood Atari 2600 cartridges for a limited edition release. I !!!still!!! don't even have a prototype and I was hoping to have it last month! Due to some family emergency with the wood carver, it's been delayed. He keeps giving me dates, but I don't have a prototype even shipped to me yet.

 

While I have other stuff to sell (classic video game related artwork) and my friend has classic video game stuff to sell, the cartridges were the main thing.. the bread and butter so to speak.

OK VENDORS!!

 

I had a vendor drop out at the last minute (other than 'yuppicide' - see above) so I have two tables left. If anyone was on the fence about coming, now is your chance!

 

Normally we were pricing the tables at $30 each. But what I will do is auction them off. The highest bidder (up to $60 total) gets them.

 

PM me your bids by end of business Thursday. Thanks!! (and if anyone wants yuppicide's table, let me know)

So how was the show? Was it busy? I was a little worried it might not be that busy because the website didn't get updated that frequently. It seemed at the last second all the vendors were put up. Need to get them up as early as possible.

 

Anyway, my sole reason for going was to show off and sell some wood cartridges, as of current I have a prototype and that's it. I would have put out some other games, but ONLY if my game was put out first. :(
