Next SC3 Event: Planned for Nov. 2024, Exact Date TBA


  • Coin-op arcade games
  • Multiple home consoles, games, and oddities
  • Pizza, snacks and beverages
  • Game trading

We plan to host the next SC3 event at the Claremont "Backyard" location in November, just as 2023's would have been had we not been forced to cancel it. Hopefully nothing will interfere with our plans this time. As always, please vigilantly monitor this site and our Facebook page for future announcements.

Our Last Event: Invading Y2Kade, Again!

After being unable to hold the Fall 2024 SC3 event due to unfortunate circumstances, we were happy to make it back on the proverbial horse and get back behind the literal joystick by returning to Y2Kade – the incredible private arcade in Cerritos. About 100 attendees arrived for the games, the socializing, and the fun. And more than a few were there for a Smash Bros. tournament. Read all about it in our April 20, 2024 event recap.

Who Is SC3, Exactly?

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 5. 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.
