On March 8, 1922, a man named Ralph Baer was born, and he revolutionized electronic gaming forever. Sadly, he passed away in 2014. Together, let's celebrate the memory of the Father of Video Games and retro video games on this day!
COSPLAY TO WIN A RETRON 5!: In honor of retro video games and The Father of Video Games, Ralph Baer, we're declaring March 8, 2016 the first National Retro Video Game Day. To celebrate, we're giving away a RetroN 5 to EIGHT talented cosplayers! See details below on how to enter during the entire month of March.
Cosplay as your favorite retro video game character or even something inspired by retro video games. You MUST also add a Hyperkin-related element to your cosplay (a Hyperkin product, our logo, Taft the Hippo, etc.). Be creative!
