Do you enjoy getting together, making and meeting new friends and overall just having a good time? Do you enjoy the company of getting together with your friends for a round of gaming? The Twin Cities Arcaders is an all-new Meetup group that is a fusion of two great loves of mine. Arcade games (and Pinball, too) and being able to have social gathering intertwined as well. We will also be having other events, not just arcade based ones, such as going out to eat, movies and MORE! I also, want to setup a different meet ups at different arcades too. Let me know your suggestions, would love to hear them! Who knows? We might even have an arcade tournament of some sorts. Can't wait to see you very soon! ;-)
As some of our fanbase may or may not know, I have always had a very big interest in the history of Video Games and Arcade Games, and the big evolution of the games themselves. When I saw that the Science Museum of Minnesota had this new themed exhibit about video games in general. I had to see it to believe it, and I'm bring you all with me.
We will be exploring the Game Changers Exhibit at the Science Museum of Minnesota! What's going to be at this exhibit? We will get an in-depth look into the entire history of Video Games as a whole. Look into the long journey that it's had from Pong to Fortnite. We will get to check out and play over 100+ video games (No quarters required! Free play on EVERYTHING!), Immerse ourselves into unique multiplayer environments, see extremely rare concept designs and artwork for some of gaming biggest hits. Check out unique interviews with game designers and developers, and MUCH MORE! Who knows? We might even check out the other exhibits as well. Should be a blast!
As a side note, We might be checking out the 8-Bit Lounge where we will be able to check out old school arcade cabinet versions of some of our favorite games! Plus, there's even a couple video game themed beers that we can taste test. It's like a miniature-version of Up-Down Arcade Bar.
I am going to be meeting up with everyone by the main entrance, by the ticket counter. Admission for non-members is $20 and those that are Science Museum Members are Free!
