Cheers guys. It will be amazing to see you all have in your collection. I'm all for the scene not the profits. If we can make it happen, that payment enough for me.

Also if I am successful once again with this project as I was with the Atari Visual History book, there is another two projects that will hit the heart once more after this and cant wait to showcase them and announce them.

Thanks everyone for your support 😉

Never gonna happen :lol: they don't have the sheer power of the dark side to rule them all with one monolith Arcade presentational publication or know the art of these coin-ops in the way I do. I have gone beyond the event horizon in bringing something you will not see anywhere else. No diversity or complicating jargon or eye-rolling content, simply a visit to the arcades in your hands :) Get Ready!

I am awaiting the go-ahead from Kickstarter and will be presenting an announcement in the Greyfox Books style you all know me for :D

Be patience, Awesomeness awaits.......

A quick update here:

Kickstarter have given the go-ahead for the Coin-Op: The Arcade Book publication and I will be making an announcement this weekend with the launch date of the project.

Can't believe it after 8 years on and off production I'm now bringing this to the retro gaming fold. All I can say is..it will be so worth it I promise..the content is something else in this book. :)

Have a good one

Darren.
