SC3 will have a presence at the Retro City Festival on January 5th & 6th at the Fairplex in Pomona! Retro City is aiming to bring that "retrogaming convention" vibe to Southern California. This is only their second year, but they've already made plans to expand their attractions. It'll be a great show! Come by and check out SC3's booth, we hope to see you there!

The November 10 party was as much about what was not there as what was. You've heard us talk about the expanding trade area and the seemingly never-ending piles of gaming items on offer. It's difficult; we're collectors too so we like to see stuff made available. But let's face it: game resellers ("flippers") are a real thing nowadays and their "for the money" vibe doesn't mesh well with SC3's "for the games and for the friends" philosophy. So this time, we shrunk the trade area and kept the flippers away. This reduced our crowd size a bit but let us focus on having fun socializing and playing games – what our Arcade Parties are really all about! This event felt like getting back to the SC3 basics of fun, games, food, games, friends and games! Read all about it, and one Gyruss-themed birthday surprise, in the Nov. 10, 2018 Event Recap!
If you aren't familiar with SC3, we're just a friendly group of videogame enthusiasts who like nothing better than to get together to talk, trade, and play games. We've got a soft spot for games from the "classic" days of the early 1980s, but we love games of all eras, from Pong to PlayStation 4. If you love videogames, you're welcome to attend!
SC3 has made a point of keeping our meetings relaxed and informal, but the atmosphere will include some beer drinking and there may be some R-rated game content. This is an adult get-together where supervised minors will be accepted. Parents should take this into account and please let us know if you have questions.
