Dust off your bell-bottoms for Retro Game Night


Due the success of the History Center’s first Retro Game Night on March 14, the museum is bringing the event back from 7 to 11 p.m. tomorrow night. Retro Game Night is being held in conjunction with the Kid Stuff: Great Toys from Our Childhood exhibit.
Editor’s Note: The exhibit is gone, but Retro Night lives on. (See pictures of the exhibit in our Photo Gallery and a video here.)

Retro Game Night features an array of classic board and video games set up throughout the museum. Retro attire is encouraged — players can dress up in the hottest look from their favorite decade, bring friends and make new ones, and get down with an old-fashioned game.

Board games include (subject to change): Candy Land, Chutes and Ladders, Connect Four, Hungry Hungry Hippos, Mystery Date, Scrabble, Twister, Uno, Yahtzee, and more. Video games include (subject to change): Donkey Kong, Centipede and Space Invaders.

Sunny 105.9 FM will set the mood with the “greatest hits” of past decades. The “totally awesome” evening also includes free nostalgic treats and a beer and wine cash bar.

Admission to Retro Game Night is $5 cash at the door and free for members. The Orange County Regional History Center is located at 65 East Central Blvd., at the corner of Magnolia Avenue in downtown Orlando. Call (407) 836-8580 or visit www.thehistorycenter.org for more information.
