Today's Events

Electricity is a precious commodity at EVO. Circuits were strained early on and there was a bit of confusion regarding allotment, so we held off on setting up the cabinets and superguns until we could find a dedicated circuit.

While waiting for the power situation to be resolved, I walked the floor a bit.

High attendance this year, and they ran out of pretty much everything. I wish I’d gone for an EVO stick bag first thing in the morning, as by the time I got around to checking, they’d long been sold out.

The arcade games had players constantly throughout the day. It’s a great feeling watching someone have a blast on a cabinet you’ve restored.
Arcade hit!
