This is only the start. Because The Game is Never Over.
From our physical show, the LI Retro Gaming Expo -
But don’t take our word for it…
The Expo was unique and fun to explore. There was something cool to see at every turn. Doing a panel in a planetarium was also one of the coolest things I’ve done at a convention. I’ll be there next year!
Floor by floor (there were multiple floors!) LI Retro was a fantastic bang for our gaming buck. Between the stack of great vendors selling great stuff at great prices, some killer musicians, and several interesting panels, it’s impressive to see just how much this con has grown in a few short years. I can’t wait to see what they have in store next.

We had a blast at the LI Retro Gaming Expo. As a video game podcast, we’re there to meet our fans and also get new fans interested in listening to our unique and funny podcast. LI Retro gave us our first opportunity to do a live show which was an amazing experience. It goes a long way to make people feel welcomed at these things. Can’t wait for next year!

I, like many other returning attendees and vendors, look forward to the Long Island Retro Gaming Expo all year long. The event organizers make each year more spectacular than the last and it’s continued growth is a testament to the shows’ success. Bar-none, you will not find a better video-game convention in this region.
