It’s officially on! – US and UK reveal events confirmed!

After months of Skype calls, WhatsApp chats, text messages, e-mails and then more of the same, we are excited to announce that we have locked in *BOTH* the US and the UK reveal event locations along with dates and additional info.  In the vein of getting to the good stuff, here’s where you will be able to see – and play – fully-working and restored Sky Skipper arcade games in 2017:

Adding to the excitement we are confirmed for “grand-stage” reveal events and Q&A/panel discussions at both SFGE and the Arcade Club.  Once we have the times for the reveal event and the sessions, we’ll post back to this page with that information in the table above.

We are also excited to announce that we will have two very special guests with us at SFGE in Atlanta for the US reveal event:

Billy Mitchell

Walter Day


Billy Mitchel @ wikipedia


Walter Day @ Facebook

Billy has been a big part of the project and Walter has graciously agreed to oversee the historical and preservation aspects of the project so we are excited for both of them to lend their name, expertise and endorsement to our efforts.  We are working to bring other notable figures within the Nintendo and retro gaming community to both events, so stay tuned for more possible announcements!

Let’s make history together – we hope to see you there!
