Who We Are

Player One, LLC is made up of a group of gaming enthusiasts who live in the metro Atlanta area and, just like you, want an expo that the mid-south can call our very own. Joel, Dana, Patrick, Preston, and Shannon created the Southern-Fried Gaming Expo to share the nostalgia and skill of the game with long-time gamers, and to spread the joy of discovery with new fans of all ages. Atlanta has a long history with arcade, pinball and gaming. Read about how Atlanta made pinball illegal 75 years to the day of our inaugural event.
