I had a GREAT time at this year's Houston Arcade Expo. Many thinks to Keith and all the other organizers and volunteers!! I brough my newly restored Genie for the tournament area, and my Alien for the free-play area. Blake helped me load in/out, and provided his truck for transport - so again THANK YOU SIR for all your help!!

 

 

 


We arrived around 9:00am Friday, and quickly got Genie up and runnning

Time to turn 'em all on and get started!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Wow - is Brian actually PLAYING a game?!?!?
I thought he just did repairs.

 

 

 


The lights are out, and folks are starting to fill in

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


With the exception of when I was fixing something, Alien was played non-stop.

 

 

 


 

 


It's hard to see, but there was a fog machine incorporated into this topper.

Well, this is very fitting.

 

 

 

 


Even Mario enjoyed playing Alien

We had an interesting crowd watching the Astros both Friday and Saturday night
