- Zaxxon
- Karate champ
- Great 1000 mile rally
- Bad dudes
- Tiger Road
- Blasteroids
- Indy Heat Danny Sullivan 3P
- Millipede

Also some beast like LA Machine guns DLX, Rapid River and one of my favourites Lucky and Wild sitdown.

congratulations  :wink:


Thanks Robin.
I remember how cool the setting was during the Eurocade events in Ridderkerk and Hilversum and I'd love to reproduce some of it's magic with some good ol' classics.

Thanks friend, and you have always supported Eurocade in some way or form which was awesome. :spaceace: :spaceace:

This sounds like a very cool project and I'm positive that in a city with SO many tourists, students, hipsters and whatever it will be a big success.

Who knows.....maybe it will even me make me drive to 020  ;D ;D ;D

Yeah I think Amsterdam is potentially the best place to proof the concept and grow. My hope is to expand on a healthy basis and put up the best experience of classic  games that we can offer.
With the latest purchases we went from just being able to fill the arcade to having a choice of what to put in it. Which in turn gives me the freedom to work on cabinets that didn't make the line-up.

In regards to driving to 020, just put up some horse-blinders if you are bothered by it and drive straight to our joint  ;D

Wise thing to do is to expand to The East before cluttering The Randstad.  :D :D :D :D

Ik werd neergezet als de "beste restaurateur" maar kom voor m'n gevoel net om de hoek kijken. D'r zijn zoveel disciplines in dit beroep dat het onmogelijk is om overal goed in te worden.

I just watched the first 20 minutes, nice video so far. It's good to hear some guys with knowledge speaking Dutch for a change. :)

BTW, next time ditch the headphones!  ;D ;D ;D ;)

Haha you noticed. I asked them before we started why we need the headphones. Answer was so we can hear how we sound through the mic. I moved one of my ear so I could hear in rea live.
