Confluence Center's Show & Tell: CIA Arcade Machines to Sex Toy Video Games

Posted By on Tue, Apr 8, 2014 at 11:01 AM

First, The University of Arizona has nurtured and made a space for the Learning Games Initiative Research Archive (has one of the largest video game collections in the world) ... Second, the Archives co-curators Ken McAllister and Judd Ruggill are coming back to downtown on Wednesday, April 9, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Playground Bar & Lounge, 278 E. Congress St. McAllister and Ruggill are hosting another one of those amazing Confluence Center's Show & Tell presentations—free snacks, happy hour drinks and fun brain food.

The return to Playground for McAllister and Ruggill is called "Confluencenter's Multimedia Learning Game Experience. Tales from the (Video Game) Archive II," and the curators return with some of the collections more unusual artifacts: arcade machines sponsored by the CIA to video game sex toys to a game controller with nearly 50 buttons (all cool as long as the video game sex toys are not the ones with the 50 buttons).
