Maker House and Generation Cool are teaming up to bring an exciting Arcade Showdown from 5 p.m. to midnight on Thursday, Feb. 27, at the Maker House mansion, 283 N. Stone Ave. 20 contestants will battle it out on 10 separate gaming cabinets. The winner will take home an arcade machine, and runner-ups will get gift certificates and schwag. This event feels like the the sequel to a campy post-'80s indie film starring Fred Savage.

Maker House will teach you how to be the poor man's Neo and show you how to hack your Wii console at 5 p.m. There will also be a Gamer Swap Meet:

Swap video games, card games, board games, miniatures, comic books, or anything else game related! Swappers can get a 6×6 foot table space for $5, table not included. Space is limited and is first come, first served.

Click here to sign up for vendor space.

You can get your picture taken at the Neo Geo photo booth so you can remember this moment forever. There will be power up drink specials (who can forget Bawls?) and food trucks will onsite.

This event encourages creative folks to come cosplay as their favorite video game characters.
