ART OF ATARI
Writer: Tim Lapetino
Page Count: 352 pages
"Get in the action with Atari!" Since its formation in 1972, Atari pioneered video game technology and built today's multi-billion dollar industry, developing arcade games, home video systems, and personal computers to entertain millions of children and adults with fan-favorite games like Asteroids, Centipede, Missile Command, and Yar's Revenge. To usher in the new era of electronic entertainment, the company hired an array of talented illustrators to emblazon game cartridges, boxes, magazine advertisements, and more with mind-blowing visions of fantasy and sports thrills, science fiction and adventure, that elevated pixelated gaming to the realm of high art. Art of Atari is the first official retrospective of the company's illustrative accomplishments, spanning over four decades and cultivated from museums and private collections worldwide. Whether you're a fan, a collector, or new to the world of Atari, this book offers the most complete collection of Atari artwork ever produced!

Now, over thirty years later, Peter's stuck in a different kind of game entirely -- the game of life, and he's losing fast.

3 FREE TO ENTER Fortnite Tournaments at CT Gamercon!
Players will line up at the Fortnite Arena. When it is a player's turn they will play 1 online Solo match of Fortnite. The player with the most kills in a match during their online session will be in first place. If two players have the same amount of kills the tiebreaker will be what place they finished in during that game. If a player has started a match before the session is over, their score for that match will count. There will be a whiteboard with the current 1st place score. If a player has beat the current high score they need to stay on the results screen and raise their hand. A tournament organizer will come over and confirm that have taken the lead. Players will be allowed to enter more than once if time allows by getting back into the tournament entry line. This tournament will take place on a mix of PS4 and XBOX One Consoles.
