PRGE 2018

Recommended Posts

I'll be there!

 

I live in Portland -- let me know if you have any questions about the area or the show.

I know for sure we'll be going to this place where they serve these amazing looking biscuits. It looks so good I want to try them!

The missus and I will also be attending PRGE for the first time. I've attended CGE in the past and of course until 2 years ago had been hosting my own much smaller con here in Oklahoma for 12 years.

 

We will be arriving on Thursday and staying through the weekend. I believe we are in a hotel just a block from the event so we aren't planning to get a rental car or anything. Hopefully we don't have a real need for one.

You definitely do not need a car.  The light rail will take you from the airport to your hotel.  And that same light rail will take you over the river into downtown Portland if you want to explore that.  I think that's plenty...but if you end up wanting to see more, uber and lyft are both prevalent here.  In the area of your hotel, I highly recommend "Little Big Burger", "Frank's Noodle House", and "Cafe Yumm".  Great food that isn't too spendy. 

With all of us Atari.io folks coming, we should try to get together at least on the show floor or something.  Get a good group photo and say hello.

The light rail works perfectly.  You can make it to the airport and the convention center area easily and then walk to the hotel.  It's cheap also! 

 

We should try getting together!  I agree.  :)

That should be kind of a big deal

Justin, do you have any advertising swag for Atari.IO that we could give out at PRGE and HAAG that weekend to help promote the site????

I don't right now. Maybe after the site upgrade when it will be easier for people to join.

Left at 4:10 am this morning and arrived here at 8:10 pm. It was a looong 16 hour drive. Can't wait for the event!

Phew!  That is a long and difficult (in places) drive!  The few times I've done it, we usually stop near Sacramento and stay overnight at a hotel.  Drive safely, my friend.

 

I'll be at the show on Friday only, from noon until 3 or 4-ish.  If you guys want, PM me and I can send you my phone #.  Or just PM me here I guess to meet up.

My wife and I got in yesterday about 2pm. But as we had been up non-stop since 3am to make the flights we were a bit wore out to be honest. We did meet some folks over at Red Robin briefly but otherwise we crashed out pretty early last night. I'm just now waking up as it is and should be there most of the day today. But most of the new releases aren't available until Saturday morning so... ugh with only like 50 copies of the various releases available I'm not sure I will be able to get all I had been looking for. Just have to see and most importantly, have a ton of fun regardless!

A few pictures from the short time I was able to attend.  No access to the vendor area today.  But holy frijoles, the arcade/free-play area is HUGE this year. 

 

I played a lot of pinball.  For whatever reason, I really dug Williams' "Space Shuttle" and played that a lot.  And I had a blast doing that.  I also played the "sit down" cabinets they had.  Pole Position being a favorite. Badges this year are made to look like NES carts.  And a picture of RickR there at the end.  I was unable to meet up with TrekMD or KidA as I had to leave early for work.
