You asked for it – you got it! SC3 is hosting a special summer event on Saturday, September 10, at 2084 Arcade, a private facility jam-packed with '80s arcade classics in Anaheim. The hours are 4 p.m. to midnight. If you attended any of our previous 2084 events, you know what to expect. The owners of 2084 are four Southern California coin-op collectors who combined their collections under one roof to recreate the games list of an early 80's arcade. Now they have nearly 100 classic machines, including a few pinballs, at a facility in Anaheim. 2084 has been hosting arcade get-togethers every few weeks for quite some time now, and on September 10 SC3 will be there with our complement of home consoles, game trading and other goodies.

2084's a big enough place, but it's firmly packed with coin-ops. There's some space for home consoles but we have to go a little lighter than at other venues. Food will not be provided at this event, but there's a huge restaurant complex within walking distance. Trading is essential to the spirit of SC3 so we'll have plenty of space for it. The owners of 2084 are friends of ours and they're always improving the facility. We can't wait! As always, watch our Future Meeting Page for additional details as they emerge.

2084 Arcade Event Schedule

The April 30th party opens at 4 p.m. and lasts until 12 midnight. Home consoles will be stationed on the second floor of 2084 (just head up the stairs near the entryway) and the game trading area will be found in the parking lot directly outside. Bringing trade items? Please read our Tips for Traders.

Please note that food will not be provided at this event. There are many restaurants in the area, including many selections in the popular Packing District within walking distance.

Donations Are Appreciated!

With so many machines, electric bills are expected to be quite high. Your donations fund all SC3 events and are greatly appreciated. If all adult attendees chip in just $5, that should cover our expenses. Thank you!

RSVP Today!

If you want to attend, you must fill out this RSVP form. If your registration is accepted, you will be informed via email. Simple! Remember, it's important that you RSVP ahead of time – this location can accommodate a big crowd, but we still need an accurate headcount.

Please keep an eye on this site and SC3's Facebook page for more announcements. We hope to see you September 10th!

Recap of SC3's Last Meeting

Videogame collectors can't get enough of their hobby. It seems like no matter when you grew up, or what system, genre or era is your favorite, if you love videogames you'll end up with a collection of them, always looking to add that elusive new title or pass on accumulated stuff that you no longer want. At SC3's April 30 event at 2084 Arcade in Anaheim, over 250 attendees were busy doing just that. Oh, and some of them even found time to play some games too. Read all about it in our April 30 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 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.
