The Brits really need to learn some water management from us Dutchies, they're getting more and more problems with the heavy rains....

Not sure but somehow everything looks so familiar ;) ;) ;)

Great pick-up Bruno ! I never played GnG when I was young so I don't have a link with it. Luc has a minty one he got from the US (Quarterarcade) but I've tried it only 1 or 2 times. Still a lovely machine !!
And Moon Patrol.....never played the original hardware but I do remember this one from my Atari 8 bit computers and played it a lot. Great game, lovely cab !!!

Another worthy addition to the lair, congrats !!!

That Ghost & Goblins cabinet is awesome. Great side-art/marquee, and it's a pretty tough game to play.
Great photostory once again :ghost: :ghost:

Congratulations on getting two must have games!!

Moon Patrol... Love it to the MAX!!!

GNG... Glad you got a dedicated one!!   The only ones I've ever saw/played were conversions.. mostly out of Zaxxons.

I have to say that I'm jealous, a bit. Why ?

Because those two games are probably my 2 favorite arcade games of all time.

Thanks  :-*

J+1, time to move the game in a place where I can repair them... no it won't be inside the Nuno's Lair but inside... the house  :roll: :oops:

With the help of Remy...



...and ... yes, my father...



...because these old cabinets are a pain to move, we are using using a safe way to move them inside the house as you can see  ::)

The biggest one, GNG is now in the 'wash-house'... a temporary location (yes again!)  :arrow:



The Moon Patrol is now on the living room... almost ready for the inspection  8) :



Now, let's hope my wife won't hurt me when she'll be back and see these new 'adult toys' in the place  :roll: ;D

I guess I am the only disliking GnG. I find it too difficult to play. I never remember getting past the first level. :)
But the graphics always blew me away. Ghouls'n'Ghost is also very nice to see but hard to play.
Are you thinking of getting a dedicated Ghould'n'Ghosts too?

i'm sure you can revisit it now and try beating level 1. level 1 is not too difficult... which area are you struggling with?? the bit where the floating ghosts throw them sticks at you?
