Ground Kontrol at Penny Arcade Expo – Friday 8/29-Monday 9/1

Photo by NW Pinball & Arcade ShowWe’re teaming up again with Seattle Metro Arcade Collectors to bring you an awesome classic arcade room at Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle!

Join us on the 3rd floor of the Washington State Convention Center, where we’ll be featuring dozens of arcade games and pinball tables from all eras. There will be plenty of multiplayer games, too, so you can take a break from the expo floor insanity and relive the arcade experience – all for FREE!

Plus, we’re bringing a totally unique game that we featured in this year’s Portland Geek Olympathon: Dust Hunt! This custom-designed challenge will test your speed and endurance, as you try to protect your NES cartridges from destructive dust mites. The top scores will win Ground Kontrol prizes!
