Want to chill out, play some games, maybe run around a 3D sim world? Come to the Drop-in Playpen! We’ll have a large selection of radical video games, board games, and simulations that you can play on your own or with new friends. If you’ve been working on a game at the AMC, this is the perfect place to playtest it!
