On the 29th of April, Swedens biggest retro game convention is back for the 6th time. Kralleman, Pinge & me have been organizers from the start but we're now taking a step back and will "only" manage the arcade section. We will have around 30 arcade cabinets next to around 30 pinball games. Everything on freeplay.

Even though this is a last minute call, if someone would happen to be able to come there, you're most welcome Smiley

We will ofc. post some photos in this thread afterwards

Yeah, you should definatley come to Sweden for this if you have the possibility.

Check out the website, dont know if all is available in english http://www.retrospelsmassan.se/eng/

Today I and kralleman will load up a trailer with cabinets to transport to our storage in Gothenburg, and the day before the event we will have two more trailers going down with games.

We ended up having 33 cabinets on the convention. All except two made it through the whole 11 hours & there were people occupying every single machine the whole day.

Some photos (before opening):

It's original, but the cabinet itself is built here in Gothenburg, Sweden. We have a few more examples of these in Sweden, were all parts are original, but to save on shipping cost, the cabinet itself were built on location.
