The purpose of this group is to meet other people that enjoy playing, discussing, and collecting video games from the 70's, 80's and 90's, and of course to play games with them. Any video game released in the 20th century is fair game (no pun intended). This would include any arcade games, home consoles or handhelds, popular or unpopular, common or rare.

We typically meet monthly on the weekends at members' homes in Philly and the surrounding suburbs. We also meet in public at places conducive to console or arcade gaming.

If you live in the Philadelphia area, love classic video games, and want to meet other people that do, too, then this group is for you. Adults only, please.
