Yes ChrisChris the one and only ! :)

Ow uhmm yes well.......I second DOT, fantastic looking cab and yes the game is great too !
IMHO we really need a Q*bert this year because it was sadly missing last year and people will love it! I know they will especially since his role in Wreck it Ralph. I don't see mine running before the show though and if no-one else is bringing a Q*bert (Bruno ?) that would probably my second pick.

Nope !

We stick to Theater 2 for at least the most classic of arcade games, with possibly overflow to the Blue Room, depending of course on amount of offered machines.

We feel that Theatre 2 was absolutely perfect for as "the arcade". We will do our best to enhance airconditioning even more this year ! :)

The Blue Room will have the consoles etc. etc.

Pieter please feel free to add/correct info :)

nice nice
nice extra movie too

(I would adjust that 50 question quiz into Retro Quiz in the style of Hatje On, Hatje Off ;) and win extraspecial deluxe prices! The 50 number is incorrect and will confuse people's expectation)

I kinda agree, but I've only seen the trailers plus, we also have to think of the general public. It is also awesome that we get agreements from them (and also Jeff Von Ward for Space Invaders) for free.
They are proud and happy that we screen the movies for their target audiences overseas.

I think this movie has, in theory at least, a more interesting background story because it follows Richie's life and the consequences of the hobby in his private life. At least that's what I understood.
Always cool to have a back story, just like in KOK.
