    ReplayFX Arcade & Gaming Festival Update #3
    Update summary: Tickets and Pinburgh reservations go on sale Sunday.

    Tickets for the ReplayFX Arcade & Gaming Festival are set to open this Sunday, December 7, at noon EST.

    Since our last update, the Replay Foundation has added a full-sized arcade or pinball machine to the collection at a rate of more than one per day, putting us on schedule to easily eclipse the 700 machines promised in our advertising. Anyone interested in following our progress as we acquire games and build the Greatest Arcade in the Universe can do so on our ReplayFX Facebook page.

    For competitive pinball players, December 7 at noon EST also means the opening of reservations for the Pinburgh Match-Play Pinball Championship, as run by the Professional & Amateur Pinball Association. At the most recent Pinburgh, all 400 available openings sold out in ninety minutes. For 2015, the field has been expanded to 700 competitors, and the prize pool has expanded to a guaranteed $100,000 thanks to sponsorship from pair Networks Inc.. With the largest tournament in history now taking place alongside seminars, vendors, and 130,000+ square feet of gaming, we refuse to predict how fast reservations will go. If you want to participate, our best recommendation is to set your alarm and be on the website when the clock hits noon EST. Over 160 players will take home cash prizes, and our team is doing everything possible to ensure the event is a competitive, fun, and social atmosphere for everyone involved.

    $42 vendor spaces in the ReplayFX marketplace are nearly filled, and we expect the remaining spaces to sell out within the next few weeks. Any vendors who are interested in participating at this lower price point should contact our marketplace team immediately. We are also currently accepting applications for discussion panels and volunteers. A full list of vendors and discussion panels will be announced in the Spring of 2015.

    If you are interested in participating in this unique and exciting festival, built by gamers for gamers, don’t hesitate to contact us. Everything so far is proceeding as planned, and that includes our preparation for one of the largest crowds ever at a classic gaming exhibition. ReplayFX will be a perfect time to show off your new product, enjoy a few drinks and lots of games with friends, or to enjoy a family-friendly vacation at the Greatest Arcade in the Universe!

    More detailed announcements will be released over the coming months. In the meantime, don’t forget to buy tickets and reserve your spot in Pinburgh on December 7 at noon EST!
