ACAM provides arcade exhibit for Granite State Comicon

The American Classic Arcade Museum (ACAM) is proud to announce that we are participating in the 2013 Granite State Comicon. The event will be held in Manchester, NH on September 28th and 29th, 2013 at the Radisson Center of New Hampshire. ACAM will be providing a small arcade game exhibit featuring popular games from the 1970's and 1980's.
Now in its 10th year, the Granite State Comicon is the largest comic convention in the state. Founded by Double Midnight Comics of Manchester, the convention features comic book and collectibles dealers, guest artists & writers, table top and video game tournaments, costuming and other events.
“We are looking forward to participating in our first comic book convention,” said Gary Vincent, President of ACAM. “We have taken an arcade exhibit on the road for many large video game shows in the past several years, and we think that bringing some of our games to the Granite State Comicon should be a lot of fun.”
“We’re very excited to have the American Classic Arcade Museum at Granitecon this year,” said convention organizer Chris Proulx. “We’re all fans of classic video games and this will add another level of fun to our convention.”
The American Classic Arcade Museum is located on the third floor of the massive Funspot Family Entertainment Center in Weirs Beach, NH. ACAM was founded and established as the first 501c3 non-profit facility dedicated to the preservation, history and play of classic arcade games. Funspot is the largest arcade in the world as recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records. Over the years as more machines were added by being purchased or by donation, the American Classic Arcade Museum became the Mecca for arcade game enthusiasts, and the merely curious. It is now the largest collection of fully operational classic arcade video games in the world. The museum has gained national and international recognition being highlighted in ESPN: The Magazine, MSNBC, EDGE Magazine, Retro Gamer, The Escapist, Yankee Magazine, in-flight airline publications and locally in NH to DO magazine & The Boston Globe. ACAM has also been the backdrop for several feature films and has been utilized by collegiate educational institutions as a learning & research facility for their students.

Classic Gaming Book Signing @ ACAM
8/22/2013 1:19:58 AM By Mike Stulir
New England's own Bob Chipman - the film, video-game and pop-culture commentator also known as "MovieBob" and "The Game OverThinker" - is scheduled to appear at The American Classic Arcade Museum at Funspot in Weirs Beach, New Hampshire to sell and autograph copies of his new book of video-game criticism, Super Mario Bros. 3: Brick-By-Brick. The session will take place at ACAM on Saturday, September 14th, 2013 from noon-3pm.
A member of the Boston Online Film Critics Association and lifelong fan of classic video-games, Chipman is best known as the host of Escapistmagazine.com's "Escape to The Movies" and "The Big Picture" weekly series; along with Screwattack.com's "OverBytes" and "The Game OverThinker."
First released in 1989, Super Mario Bros. 3 remains one of the most popular and influential classic games ever made and is regarded as one of the best entries in the top-selling Super Mario franchise. It also happens to be Chipman's favorite game of all time; and in "Brick-By-Brick", he delivers a narrative account of playing through every step of the game from start to finish, serving up in-depth artistic, historical and technical critique of it's content as he encounters it - including his own missteps, re-tries and anecdotes of his own life outside the game. As prologue, he offers an introduction to the history of the game franchise and a personal account of his experience growing up in the Golden Age of classic gaming.
Copies of the book will be for sale during the signing session, or you can order one from http://www.fangamer.net/products/super-mario-bros-3-brick-by-brick.

Many dedicated gamers on Aurcade.com log multiple hours in accumulating the highest score they possibly can.
For some, this means focusing on a single game title, learning the ins and outs of the mechanics and pushing themselves to be the game's finest player. Many competitive gamers have earned the spotlight for this tireless dedication. Others flock from game to game, challenging others and entering competitions that put their overall gaming skill to the test.
Galloping Ghost Arcade hit another competition accolade for the location when Matt Walters surpassed 2,000 Aurcade tokens at the end of July. The token system ranks players based on their highest recorded score for a game, awarding higher numbers of tokens proportionately to the total number of players with a recorded score. Thus, being challenged by other players or entering competitions yields more tokens.Continue to the Article...
