As you may remember, I had gotten a Midway TouchMaster 4000 off of eBay for a steal of a deal about two months back. It ended up being only around $200 shipped from http://shop.ebay.com/merchant/mandramusements. Unfortunately, when it arrived, it received damaged during shipping and had to be sent back. After a long process and a generous offer of replacing the 4000 with a 5000, which is detailed here in this nifty flyer, I'm happy to report that the second time was the charm as the arcade unit was in wonderful condition, even after shipping. While I can't guarantee you'll luck out and get the same type of deal, I can guarantee that the gentleman who runs the place is a great, great seller, and well worth checking out if you're looking for something similar.

Quarters

Impressive game room! So do you charge your kid quarters to play all the games? It could teach her the value of money.

Also, who is guarding who? R2D2 or the giant Halo helmet?

Bill's game room is amazing. It's pretty much nirvana for retrogaming nerds.

That is one heck of a basement entertainment area Bill has going here. ;-)

Thanks. The layout is tweaked a bit now, but definitely no room for a pool table. I'd like to someday get a full-sized pinball machine, but that's probably about it for the room.
