A video game convention for arcade game champions who were prominent in the early 1980s is scheduled for Humble, TX, the weekend of December 2-4, 2005. Called the "Legends of the Golden Age: A Tribal Gathering of the Greatest Video Game Superstars of the 1980s," the event will feature high-score contests on dozens of games, allowing players to potentially win listings in Twin Galaxies’ Official Video Game & Pinball Book of World Records, the industry’s 'official record book'. Walter Day, editor of the record book, will be at the event to conduct the contests and verify the high scores for the record book, and there will be two national events on classic games like Turbo-Sub and Aztarac. Among the notable players making an appearance is Abdner Ashamn of Brooklyn, who is world famous as the record holder on Ms. Pac-Man and Robotron. Also, coming from San Jose, California is Mike Klug, a legendary competitor and former world record holder on Atari’s Pole Position. In addition, Greg Sakundiak of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, who held many world records on classic arcade games during the 80s, but retired from gaming to pursue a career in professional arm wrestling, will also be present. More information on the event is available at the official Twin Galaxies website.
