Baltimore is a good place to be a gamer. We’ve got devoted shops for role-playing, board and trading card games, collectibles and a swath of video games both old and new. We even have a music festival reserved for bands covering everyone’s favorite video game soundtracks.

The Windup Space is clearly up on this. Tonight, the North Avenue bar and art space turns into a gamer haven, with an array of consoles stretching from Nintendo all the way up to Xbox 360 hooked up to TVs—all free to play—plus a place for more up-to-date players to bring out their Playstation 4 to link up on the virally popular survival game “Fortnite.”

If you’re looking to get your hands on the older controllers, this Facebook event says there’ll be Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, Dreamcast, N64, GameCube, the original Playstation and more. And if you can’t make it out, fear not. The Windup Space is doing all of this again next Monday.

8-11:55 p.m. The Windup Space, 12 W. North Avenue, (410) 244-8855, thewindupspace.com, free.
