Do you as well have a list? Or switch to OSM instead of GMaps?
I have Google blocked for snooping prevention :)


Sorry, what does this mean exactly? What is OSM?

Anyway to catch up on my quest to map all locations in the known galaxy I am looking for more arcades in Canada. Currently there are only 6 (b)arcades on the map but I am sure there are more, especially on the east side. Anyone know any east by any chance?

5 minutes walk from Maashaven metro I see.  The wife is plotting a trip to 020 for us in September, along with my oldest child (if 23 is still classed as a child lol).  If it happens, then I am sure I ill take a trip to 010 to escape the drunk, skunk fuelled Brits in 020 for a day.  Maybe even a trip to Doomdrecht if my old Boss is still living there.

The pinball museum is great and I am not even a pinball lover. But no, it does not fit the criteria for the arcade map though so I won't be adding it.

Although I now have more than 400 arcades on the map I am still specifically looking for arcades in Germany. Are there any (b)arcades around Hamburg and Berlin by any chance?

There is going to be a great videogame museum in Zoetermeer, The Netherlands, soon. In the middle of the city center, where previously a big 'Shopping center' was (called V&D). Initiator for this museum is Psykick (Hasan), well known in the dutch Gaming community and a great guy. A lot of us has met him more than once. (He is/was also part of Nozomi). And there are lots of Arcade games.

The new museum will partially be sponsored by the city itself, mainly paying for rent building etc. The museum can at least proove itself for one year, after that .....

So, everybody who is in this dutch area (Zoetermeer is only a few clicks away from The Haque), must visit it.

Here are a few links to Dutch articles about it (please use Google translate):

Haha I am fortunate enough to help the museum out a bit and they should be opening the doors in October so it will definitely get their spot on the map.

Any other suggestions perhaps?

Yeah I'm also involved in this museum. But it's not an arcade museum, it's a video game museum that will have a lot of arcade games

We do our best to make it as good  as possible with a low budget.

The plans we have look promising

OSM = Open Street Map Layer instead of Google Maps.

There's a new opening in Austria the next weeks. Lots of Jukeboxes, Pinballs and an Arcade area.
