Play Expo Blackpool 2016 Arcade Cabinet List Confirmed

One of the charming aspects of Play Expo, which is a retro gaming event ran by our good friends at Replay Events and sponsored by Funstock Retro, is that attendees are not only able to play retro consoles, such as the Atari 2600, Atari Jaguar or ZX Spectrum, but they are also able to play a wide-selection of arcade cabinets; majority of which are no longer in circulation.

So; with Blackpool, which is one of the biggest locations in the UK to find arcade games, being the next location on the Play Expo 2016 Calendar the event organizers have opted to bring a wide variety of retro arcade games to the event; including my favouite ever arcade game – Time Crisis.

In total seventy-eight arcade games will be available at Play EXPO Blackpool; all of which will be on ‘free play’ mode, so there is no excuse not to give each game a try.
