If you love classic video games and gaming systems, a retro video game show is coming to Michigan.
Retro video games
I remember at the time burning Nintendo Zapper guns while playing Duck Hunt on a Nintendo game console. It was the first shooter where you used a special controller that looked and worked like a gun.
You can’t get more retro than the Pong video game. It was one of the most basic video games around with a simple black background with slider controls hitting a ball back and forth similar to tennis. I played this game for many hours with my friends and at the time we loved it.
Retro Game Show, Swap Meet and Upcoming Tournament in Michigan
Maybe you have some old gaming systems in the basement or attic that you’d like to get rid of or maybe buy some more to add to your collection. Maybe you still play the old retro games and want to show off your skills.
The Detroit Retro Video Game Show is coming to the Knights of Columbus Monaghon Banquet Center in Livonia on Saturday, November 5.
The event starts at 9 a.m. and lasts until 5 p.m. General admission tickets are only $5, with the event only taking cash at the door, so remember to bring some cash with you when you attend.
Participants will be able to buy, sell and trade games, gaming systems and even standalone arcade games.
If you still have your old-school gaming chops, there will be a retro gaming tournament you can enter. The tournament games will be Goldeneye, Mario Kart Double Dash, Smash Brothers Melee and Tetris. You can register for the tournament of your choice at the door when you enter. Prizes will be awarded to the winners of the tournament.
