    We're beyond excited to announce the return of the Southern-Fried Gaming Expo (SFGE) in Atlanta, GA August 20-22, 2021! If you've never been before, you're missing out. More than just arcade and pinball games, we're a celebration of everything gaming-related. From modern e-sports, retro video games, RPGs, and tabletop board games to everything in-between (with a little live wrestling thrown in for fun), we are fun, family-friendly show and are excited to be one of the first gaming conventions to open since the start of the pandemic.

    We're thrilled to come back with a huge pinball presence. We'll be the first public showing of Marco Specialties and Classic Game Rooms since 2019 and they're showing up in full force with over 40 brand new pinball machines for free play, including EIGHT new examples (4 pro/4 premium) of The Mandalorian. (Discounted show games area available if you contact Classic Game Rooms). With IFPA lifting restrictions, we'll also be one of the first shows back with a competitive pinball tournament for IFPA points.

    Why come to SFGE? In addition to over 250 arcade and pinball machines on free play, we offer many things that other shows don't such as the live wrestling mentioned above, a hot pepper-eating challenge, a costume contest, an '80s prom with live music, miniature painting, a flea market, and more. Check out our hype video below and we hope to see you at SFGE 2021! Memberships and more at https://gameatl.com/

    Following up on Welsh's question. Is there a sale/trade thread? Looking forward to the event this year.

    #18 66 days ago

    I suppose everyone who is on the SFGE mailing list saw the news that Spooky Pinball will have an official presence at the show.... and presumably might have their latest games available to see?

    Ditto on this. Had to sell off some pins for the move and I’m ready to start adding things back again.

    Not yet, they currently just have a medieval madness in a relatively empty booth. Hopefully some more pins will join after their talk tonight at 7:00!
