Please welcome returning featured panelists, Action Arcade!
Action Arcade is a group of (by no means professional) gamers who got their start at the first Ring of Fire convention in 2014. They take games and find different ways to play them, sometimes painful, oftentimes hilarious. They do speed runs, card games, tag team gaming, finding weird games to stream, and their signature in competitive gaming: Cutthroat Gaming. Come out and watch as this group of gamers torture themselves for your entertainment!
