The Retrocade

PRGE is excited to partner with Ground Kontrol Classic Arcade and the Portland Arcade Collectors for a classic gaming experience like no other. Put simply, it will be 30,000 square feet of full-size arcade cabs and pinball machines. All awesome and all set to freeplay. It's like a museum that you can touch - pay one admission price and play all weekend.

Open Friday

PRGE's Retrocade will be open to the public starting on Friday, October 19 through Sunday, October 21. A PRGE weekend pass gets you twenty-seven possible hours of space invading, power pellet-munching, street fighting, mushroom stomping, ring grabbing and silver ball flipping.

How do we do it?

Enormous effort is required to gather such a large collection of working game machines and we could not do it without the help of both private and business game collectors from all around the Pacific Northwest. These generous donors have put their blood, sweat and tears into keeping these machines alive and it's very gratifying that they have agreed to make them available for the public at the Expo.

We need your help!

Can you donate an arcade or pinball machine to appear at the Retro Gaming Expo? We have several benefits for contributors from free passes to the Expo to booth space, depending on the number of machines contributed. Go to the arcade volunteer page for more information.

Arcade and Pinball Games

PRGE will host over 200 coin-op games in 2017, with 90 of those being pinball machines. Look for our Star Wars anniversary area where we will have most of the Star Wars themed arcae and pinball machines set up for freeplay!
