About the Seattle Retro Gaming Expo (via http://www.seattleretro.org/news/about-srge.html)
The Seattle Retro Gaming Expo is an organization dedicated to creating a network of gamers in the Seattle area, and providing outlets for us to express our passion for all facets of the geek culture in general, and classic videogames in particular.
Began in the early parts of the millenium, NWCGE (Northwest Classic Gaming Enthusiasts) started having small shows designed primarily to give collectors an opportunity to swap games and stories. Since then, NWCGE has put on several shows, and members have gone on to form both the Portland Retro Gaming Expo, and now the Seattle Retro Gaming Expo.
Our aim is to provide people in the Seattle-Tacoma area with a space to share their love of videogames, and to meet like-minded individuals. We believe that collaboration and cooperation between gamers and the organizations that represent them will benefit everyone, and we are committed to promoting that goal through our shows and events.
