Just drove all the way to the middle of nowhere yesterday (somewhere above Apeldoorn) to the little town Epe. Between a crapload of ugly eighties granny-flats with pink, aubergine or aqua balcony railings (way too big for a small town like Epe) there is a cute somewhat hidden leftover of a once nice city center, and there you'll run into a very nice turn of the century (1900) villa, probably old townhall/priest house. Bonami opened its new every-day-open-but-monday Game Computer musuem. It was still a bit WIP, as the second floor had to be filled up, so the price was 5 instead of 7.

The 2 owners were present, and told me a bit about the plans for the next weeks.
At the moment they have a room with modern consoles (NES to PS3), a room with old consoles (Telstar to Atari 5200), a pong room with 40 pongs, an obsucer room with some handhelds, a very nice early Nintendo brickout game, and other rare gaming stuff, and a room with a little arcade.
The plans are to make the big console room an even bigger arcade room, and move the consoles up a floor.
Arcadewise I saw:
Timepilot
Break Out
Generic dutch Frietkot machine with DK Jr.
Generic dutch Frietkot machine with multiboard
Space Invader TT
MS Pacman TT
Sega Mega machine (never saw this, like a Sega Mega Drive standup, with 2 displays, a big and a little one with descriptions).
And a racing standup (sorry, did not remember which one it was).

Al arcades are on free play, and some of the consoles too. The pong room was TV-less, so not much to play there.

Overall a very good initiative, and I hope they will take some of the advise from the HKU/Media Academy students for their marketing, as the site still looks really Geocitiesque.

I talked to one of the owners on one of the retro fairs he organizes in Apeldoorn and invited him for Eurocade but never really got a response even after sending him an e-mail....

They asked 2 media schools to design a new one, so they have 2 complete fancy options laying somewhere, yet they still think the current one looks better I guess.
