What is the Midwest Gaming Classic?
The show features home video game consoles both retro and modern, pinball machines, arcade video games, computers, table top gaming, crane games, collectible card games and air hockey, but that’s just the start! If you’re wondering about what you’ll find when you come to the show click “Learn More” and I’ll explain what the event is all about.
The Midwest Gaming Classic is about celebrating gaming. This is a show by gamers, for gamers. The show began in 2001 as a celebration of one of our favorite game consoles, and it has blossomed since then into a 60,000+ square foot gaming extravaganza that covers everything a gamer could want to know about the industry, and it features the the communities and fans surrounding these awesome activities introducing you to them!
The Midwest Gaming Classic is about trying new things. No matter what you are into now, we want you to stop in and try your hand at a little bit of everything. If you like the old school games, try some of the latest ones. If you like new games, try some of the old. If you like pinball, take the time to check out a table top game. The Midwest Gaming Classic will introduce you to all aspects of gaming, and you might find something new that you love!
The Midwest Gaming Classic is about learning things about the hobby of gaming. No one knows every aspect about his or her favorite aspects of gaming. Whether you find out something new by interacting with the person that created the game or just another fan, there are lots of great opportunities to learn new and exciting things about your favorite hobby.
The Midwest Gaming Classic is about meeting other people who share the love of gaming. The event is a place where friends who chat on the internet get together to meet face-to-face for the first time; where old friends run into each other and discuss their favorite arcade game that they used to play together as kids in the arcade. Everyone can meet new friends who share a common interest.
Finally, the Midwest Gaming Classic is fun. If you enjoy any sort of gaming, you will have fun playing your favorites, competing against others, hearing from people in the industry about how games are made and finding new games to purchase and play. No matter if you only have one console and a handful of games or thousands of games in every room of your house, you’ll have fun.
