Well, I am going to PRGE this year.  It was a great even to visit last year so I decided to experience it again.  I just got my flight reservations done as well as my hotel reservations. This year I'm staying at the Inn at the Convention Center.  Much closer to the convention center and the price is not bad. 

🖖 Going to the final frontier, gaming...

Is anyone planning to attend PRGE 2017?  It doesn't seem the date for the event has been set yet.  I went last year for the first time and am really thinking of attending again this year.  It was fun!

 

 

Cool.  I'm waiting for them to post the dates for this year to see if I can go.

They have it listed as Oct 20-22, 2017. And the Houston ArcadeExpo had to move their dates from the 2nd weekend in November to the same weekend in Oct. as PRGE due to a hotel booking screw-up. So, most of the people who go to both (I.E. - AA, Darrell Spice Jr., etc) will be at PRGE and not HAAG this year.
