Retro Gaming Expo Coming to Fort Thomas

CinciClassic coming to the Queen City A celebration of Retro Gaming planned for May 2019 


The Highlander Event Center in Fort Thomas will host video game enthusiasts, families, and nostalgia buffs on Saturday, May 18th.

Voted "Best Yoga Studio" in Kentucky by Best Things Kentucky. 18 N. Fort Thomas Ave. 
The CinciClassic Retro Gaming Expo will offer a chance to experience gaming “the way it used to be” with retro consoles from the 80s and 90s, arcade and pinball machines, tournaments, and guests such as actor and martial artist Daniel Pesina, who played Johnny Cage along with ninjas Sub-Zero and Scorpion in the original Mortal Kombat game from Midway.

The expo will host various artists and vendors from across the U.S. along with game industry professionals and developers.

CinciClassic hopes to recapture the spirit of its predecessor, a video gaming meetup of the same name which took place annually in Cincinnati during the early 2000s. Newly hosted by Northern Kentucky business Bit Pop, LLC., CinciClassic aims to revive the community-feel of the original while expanding its offerings to include new additions such as video game industry guests and a “handheld museum” in which patrons can learn about the history of handheld gaming.

Purchase tickets to CinciClassic online at www.cinciclassic.net, through the CinciClassic Facebook page, or at the door on the day of the event. The cost is $10 for adults, children 12 and under are free.

Bit Pop, LLC. is a Newport, Ky event and entertainment business specializing in video-gaming and pop culture. CinciClassic surpassed its funding goal through Kickstarter last October in less than 48 hours.
