Next SC3 Arcade Party: November 12, 2016!

Ten years ago, SC3 hosted its first "backyard" arcade party in Claremont. It was a simpler time. With only about 20 arcade cabs and maybe 40 attendees, the backyard had room to spare. What a difference a decade makes! After ten years of growth, SC3 is bigger than ever; that yard can hardly contain u...

SC3 Sept. 10, 2016: Tons of Trading (Again) at 2084!

On, September 10, over 200 attendees gathered at 2084 Arcade in Anaheim for the latest SC3 arcade party. Much like our previous event, this gathering was heavy on trading. Over twenty 6' tables filled up quickly, overflowing with boxed NES carts, Virtual Boys, PS2 games and more. If you looked hard ...

SC3 Apr. 30, 2016: Tremendous Trading at 2084!

Videogames change; the technology becomes more advanced, graphics more sophisticated. New genres emerge, become popular, fade away. Sometimes "old" trends reemerge and become "new" again. But one thing that never seems to go out of style is collecting. It seems like no matter when you grew up, or wh...

SC3 Nov. 7, 2015: The Biggest Backyard Blowout!

Sometimes things don't go entirely according to plan. But that doesn't always mean things won't work out well in the end. So it was with the Nov. 7, 2015 meeting of the Southern California Classic Collectors (SC3). The weeks leading up to this event seemed plagued with bad luck. Of the five main SC3...

SC3 May 9, 2015: Our First Time at 2084 Arcade

May 9, 2015 marked the first, but not the last, SC3 event held at 2084 Arcade in Anaheim. Named for the fateful year of the robot apocalypse prophesied by the legendary arcade game Robotron: 2084 , 2084 Arcade is notably less dangerous but no less awesome. The facility came to life when four SoCal a...

SC3 Nov. 15, 2014: More Backyard Hardware than Ever Before

It seems like every time we think we've reached the peak, the upper limit of what a single back yard can contain, we're proven wrong. The latest meeting of the Southern California Classic Collectors (SC3), held November 15, 2014, was another back-yard blowout, straining the capacity of the premises ...

April 26, 2014: SC3 Invades The Last Arcade... Again!

You'd think there would be no surprises left. Yes, you'd think that after eight years of organizing arcade parties like the one SC3 hosted April 26 at The Last Arcade on the Planet, everything would go smoothly. This was, after all, the fourteenth arcade party SC3 has put on since 2006, and the seco...

Ten. Hard as it is to believe, November 9, 2013 marked the tenth time the Southern California Classic Collectors have hosted one of our now-legendary "back yard" parties in Claremont, CA. And now that we've finally hit double-digits, we're able to say with some confidence that we finally kind of kn...

June 1, 2013: SC3 Invades the Last Arcade on the Planet

Sometimes you get lucky, and other times you have to make your own luck. SC3 experienced a bit of both kinds of times when we teamed up The Last Arcade on the Planet on June 1, 2013, for yet another evening of retro-tinged gaming mayhem. Although SC3's Claremont backyard parties have been great fun ...
