I'm old enough to have played nearly all the original arcade games in their original cabs

I'd love - just once - to have another play on a Battlezone or Firefox cab

There are still quite a few Battlezones out there in private hands, I've only ever seen one working Firefox even when it was a new arcade game....hens teeth doesn't even come close.

Happily though, it is the latest laser game to get the Mame treatment and should be more or less playable in a download near you now.

I'd love to have a Ghosts n Goblins cab.
As well as either the Theater of Magic or Creature From the Black Lagoon pinball machines.

More realistic though, I've been searching for years for a boxed copy of RAGS TO RICHES on the C64. It was a game I discovered purely by accident but its absolutely fab. If anyone has one or knows where I can find one, please let me know.

Seconded :mrgreen: Though in my case I did manage to score a complete version cheap on eBay a couple of years back. Really awesome yet it gets really hard pretty early on!

I suppose these two computers are my own holy grails:

SAM Coupé
Amiga A3000

Both of which I have in my collection already thankfully.

I have an A3000 as well, definitely one of the best (if not THE best) model Amigas.

I tend to think it as being the best. If I had a choice of only keeping my A3000 or the combination of my A4000/A1200/A500/CDTV/CD32 then I'd keep the 3000... perhaps. :-)

A Quartet cab for me, used to play it at my local holiday camp in the late eighties. Playing with 4 palyers was class, I've not seen one for years though.
