Okay, time for yet another road trip.  Grin

A couple of weeks ago I saw a Nintendo Red Tent for sale on marktplaats.com. Because I had just bought another cabinet I decided to let this one go. But after reading Psykick his topic about the cabinet I was feeling bad about missing such a great opportunity.  Angry

Luckily Psykick mentioned that there was another one for sale, so I contacted him and asked for the seller his email. A week and a couple of emails later I made a deal with the owner of the second tent so let's hit the road and bring this baby home Cheesy  

The Nintendo was located in Den Haag, because I was staying at my girl's place this trip will not start in Hilversum but in Amsterdam (020 as some people on this forum like to call it Wink).



As you see there is more then one location on this map, this is because I also will stop at Level42 his place to pick up my centipede pcd, (which Robin was able to fix, thanks again) and some other stuff.

Here is our transportation for the day



And off we go



After 10 minutes we reach the freeway



Schiphol, our national airport





Light at the end of the tunnel



We stop at a gas station for the usual road trip food



After about a half our we are getting near our destination





Two windmills





And we arrive at the seller's place



Didn't make any pictures inside, so after a quick talk we loaded the tent in the van.



Time to visit Level 42



After admiring Level 42 his wonderful collection he handed me over the following stuff

The Nintendo T-molding



My Centi PCB



Trackball and other stuff for the Centi


And a little present, start buttons for my Rolling Thunder.



I would like to thank Andre for the present and the warm welcome he and his wife gave us.  Grin

It was getting late so we had to go, one our later we arrived at my place and unloaded the Nintendo



The tent got a pcb inside with Slalom and The Goonies (which rock). I already ordered Wrecking Crew to replace Slalom.



The tend is in great condition, not as NOS as the one psykick got but still very nice.



I'm really happy with this fantastic cabinet and would like to thank Psykick for helping me to get in tough with the seller.

In the future I plan on buying more eroms (Super Mario Bros, castlevania and Balloon fight) and making a Jamma Connector which allows me to play the Simpsons and install mame.

nice score, but i still can't dig those table games where you have to sit down. in fact, there are only TWO cocktail games i would really consider buying: atari football and warlords - that's it! nevertheless, the good thing about the red tent is that you can exchange pcbs easily and there are indeed some great games for the system. which other games are in your possession right now?

I don't like cocktails either, but this one is different imho. The screen is located at a better position and there a lot's of games I used to own/play when I was younger. I have The Goonies and Slalom right now, Wrecking Crew should arrive this week.

Congratulations with this nice table game. And it's good to know that both rare red tents have found new caring owners in Holland.  Smiley

nice to see you are still representing the BiFi sausages on the road!!

I played on the red tent and the Goonies game is pretty nice to play. To be able to play a game like Castlevania on this machine simply rocks.

Thanks for the kind words.

Goonies looks very different, so I guess not. This game was also never released on the NES, because that was Goonies 2. Here is a video i found on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x19AptrB5So

uuhhh, my gameroom is not "picture ready" at the moment.... Cheesy

@ully: did you forget about the Joust side-by-side cocktail ? That would probably be the only one I would get but.....impossible here.....

I really like the red-tent because of it's features. I simply don't have space for one.

Now, we traced 2, there are at least 8 more somewhere.....

Hehehe looks damn fine man! I'm really glad you got it eventually  Cool There are 3 as far as I know and the rest went away a long time ago to some arcade in Morocco  Sad
I'm working crazy hours in my shop now and for the coming month, because my wife is on vacation with the kids, so it's very difficult to finish what I started on the tent. Hopefully I will soon though and maybe it'll be of some use. Keep us posted!
