I wanted to take this opportunity to invite anyone from the shmups forum to come out to our annual tournament at Galloping Ghost Arcade in Brookfield, IL.

The tournament is called T20; 20 games are chosen and not revealed until the day of the event. There is a good mix of games from most genres: classics, shmups, beat'em ups, ect. Here is last years game list, to give you an idea of what kind of mix to expect if you're interested in playing:

1. Astro Blaster
2. Bank Panic
3. Blazing Star
4. Chase HQ
5. Crazy Climber
6. Crystal of Kings
7. Eightman
8. Lunar Rescue
9. Marble Madness
10. Piranha
11. Polaris
12. Q*bert's Qubes
13. Rambo III
14. Reactor
15. Rolling Thunder
16. Star Trek Strategic Operations Simulator
17. Super Muscle Bomber
18. Tunnel Hunt
19. Two Tigers
20. Venture

The event runs Friday Aug 10 to Sunday Aug 12. The prize payouts are as follows: 1st - 500.00, 2nd - 200.00, 3rd - 100.00. The registration fee is 50.00, but includes admission to the arcade (over 600 games!) for all 3 days of the event. The rate is dropped to 40.00 if you pre-register here:

I'd love to see some shmups forum players come out and shake up the event; @Zerst has been on tear and won the last 3 of these! Besides the tournament, at the arcade there's lots of shmups on original PCBs that are cool to play on cab, like Dariusburst ACEX. Full game list here.

Even if you're not a serious arcade tournament player, we'd love to have you out and show you the arcade, interact with our awesome local community, and have a great time, in general.
