Do you ever long for the days of pinball games and arcade machines turned up so loud that you're half deaf when leaving the arcade in the mall? Well look no further; the Southern-Fried Gameroom Expo just might be what you're seeking.

Player One, LLC, which is made up of a group of five arcade and pinball collectors who live in the metro Atlanta area, are putting on the first annual expo next weekend (June 20-22) at the Atlanta Marriott Century Center in Atlanta. The expo will feature over 100 classic arcade and pinball games, vendors, guest speakers, movie screenings, a Star Wars tournament, and other events. Pac-Man enthusiasts will be able to take photos with Pac-Man himself, or can meet guests such as Billy Mitchell (the first person to score a perfect game on Pac-Man) and Jerry Buckner, who wrote and performed the song “Pac-Man Fever”.

The Southern-Fried Gameroom Expo is a family friendly event. Daily tickets and/or weekend passes for the expo can be purchased online or on-site for as low as $10/daily for kids, $15/daily for adults. More information can be found on the website at
