Re: arcade graveyard

Yeah, he quoted me around $300 each which I thought was a little crazy considering they have not been turned on in over 4 years.
he didn't seem to motivated to sell, but I told him I would think about it. The two that I bought for projects cost me $35 each at yard sales.

Re: arcade graveyard

I full on cheated. the coin door swings down to expose a Windows PC. It's just a MAME set-up with arcade, nintendo, and Turbo Grafx games.
the joysticks are USB. Nothing fancy about it.

Re: arcade graveyard

check some storage places, they seem to have TONS of stuff like this stashed away that nobody knows about. I almost crapped a brick when I went in there.

arcade graveyard

Went to a storage place today and they had a room full of unclaimed stuff that people put in storage and never come back for. Never seen a Baby Pac combo video game/pinball before. http://www.dotsandloops.com/grave3.JPG http://www.dotsandloops.com/grave4.JPG http://www.dotsandloops.com/grave5.JPG ht...
