All arcade games at MAGFest are set to free play. They cannot be set to pay mode.
Machines need to be in decent working condition. Please have them working before fest, and don't bring machines that need to be repaired. We understand that some games suffer problems during the event.
We're really looking for original or conversion arcade games, and not MAME machines. Indie developed machines are also welcome assuming they are built as an arcade platform. Contact us if there are questions here.
MAGFest cannot be held responsible for damages. We do have volunteers on the floor 24x7 watching the games.
MAGFest starts on Thursday January 5th and runs until Sunday January 8th.
MAGFest cannot handle transportation of machines. If you have a large collection that would fill a 18' or 26' truck with lift gate and want to supply them to the MAGFest arcade, this becomes a different level of involvement. This is where we pay for truck, fuel, and you can fall under the staff umbrella. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in this.
The Gaylord hotel and convention center has a very nice loading dock. The hotel provides great power hand off and MAGFest owns high quality power distribution equipment so that we can properly power machines without issue.. Before and after fest it's possible to drive into the expo hall within certain hours or there is plenty of loading dock space available.
The community makes the arcade awesome, and we totally appreciate your interest in helping us make it better!
