2003 Oklahoma Gaming Expo - Page 3

The Oklahoma Gaming Expo was held September 20th, 2003, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In the show's first year, gamers gathered from all over Oklahoma to play, buy, sell and trade video games of all types! AtariAge was at the show with several game systems setup to play and a large assortment of homebrew and other games available for purchase. And of course, we were armed with a camera so we could get photos of the event!

The three tournament machines in action. The object was to score the most points in a set amount of time in three games--Frogger for the 2600, Raiden for the Sega Genesis, and Tempest 2000 for the Jaguar. The winner received a Video Game Bible, Robotron for the 7800, a gold Quadrun cartridge, and a beautiful Zaxxon handheld.
