....oh and Erik (and the rest), here's Gary explaining about the old games not being the "token eaters":

(and also how to help them).

I bet there are machines that go through days without a single play... the more obscure one's, esp. the B/W one's too I think...

Yes. I always keep my promises....even if it takes a bit long sometimes and even if I am COMPLETELY embarrassed to be in front of the camera like that....ugh...

Be sure to switch to 720, I didn't get a HD camera for nothing Wink

You can hear my son laugh. He said I was nuts that I promised this. He was right. (he filmed it)...

Excellent!!!

Added one more pic:



Took it with my crappy phone camera. The first "arcade moment" in the US, when we landed at JFK.
There were two of these "isles" in the arrivals hall.


When we left there were plenty of these "isles" all over the terminal...all had at least one Galaga/Ms.Pac

The 2nd "arcade moment" was when I spotted a converted cab with Ms.Pac inside at the local (Jersey City) Laundromat.
A laundromat is a sight to see for us anyway (I don't think there are many left in Holland) but it was fun because it's so often mentioned on f.i. KLOV forum that there are still (old) cabs at laundromats.

From now we will not get away doing the same if we visit Funspot. Grin

Ha !

My cousin who lives in the US and joined me to a Funspot visit in 2011 just facetimed me. He had to think about me because he had discovered this place recently: http://www.pinballwizardarcade.com/gallery/

and man-o-man it is only 8 miles from his home !!!!!!!

He also mentioned he had gotten a great groupon deal for Funspot (think it was 60 dollar worth of tokens and a free lunch for 30 USD !) and he was going there end of january.


I just love that I triggered some arcade love with my cousin over there....and he's bringing his 10 year old son too....if that ain't ArcadeLifeStyle !  Grin Grin

[EDIT] Wow, look at that game list 167 video games !!!!! AARRRGGHGHHH.....OK, I think another family visit is very necessary for 2014 or so....

Pretty cool to see them enjoying it a lot !!
