Space Invaders Frenzy (Sponsored by Stars and Strikes)

(Time TBD)

We love our sponsors, and they love you! Last year Stars and Strikes brought you the World’s Largest Pac-Man, before that, the GIANT Pac-Man Battle Royale! This year, our friends at Stars and Strikes are bringing the gigantic classic flashback, Space Invaders Frenzy. We’ll be hosting a tournament on the game and if you win, you could take home your very own arcade game- a 4-player Blitz 2000 Gold/NBA Showtime! The start time is TBD, but be sure to check our upcoming schedule to see when you can blast your way through aliens!

Depending on interest and participant pool, contest could be structured in the following ways:


Zoar Arcade High Score Challenge

(Time TBD)

Last year we debuted Nintendo’s long-lost Sky Skipper arcade game. This year, we’ve got something else up our sleeves…ZOAR! Ever heard of the arcade game Zoar? We didn’t think so. This little gem from Data East didn’t find much traction in the arcades in 1982 and was lost to obscurity. It’s so obscure, in fact, that there’s only ONE recorded high score on the record books for this game. What does that mean? Well, it means that when we bring our brand-new, never-played Zoar arcade cabinet to SFGE, someone will have the chance to be the second best Zoar player IN THE WORLD!!! Will you take home the crown?
