Hi all,

My names Tom and I have a problem... not enough cabs lol.

I've had a fascination with arcades ever since going down the local sea front amusements at a young age and sitting in a deluxe Space Harrier. With it's banging tunes, flashing lights, and moving seats I was hooked. Now that I'm all grown up I scratch my arcade itch by helping to save cabs from the skip down at The Heart of Gaming in London, UK.

Hello all, I recently acquired an Egret 3 for my man cave, and I friggin' love it. I have loved learning about it and check out everything inside. I just wish it came with a 2p panel instead of the 1p, but I'm hoping to run into one someday. Can I get approved for the marketplace? Thanks!

Hey everyone! Just started this hobby - got a fixer-upper Aero City! This forum has been a wealth of knowledge for me, and I can't wait to dig in deeper!

Hi Bob, is the cab working out for you so far? What game/s do you have running in it?
I've done a teardown/clean of 2 Blasts, feel free to ask any questions, helpful guys here.

Hi all.

I''m currently researching to purchase my first arcade cabinet.
I've been eyeing the Taito Vewlix models for years now and have found the funds (as well as the missus approval :lol: ) to commit to my decision.

I'm excited to start this journey!

I’ve been in arcade limbo for a while but back on the restoration projects I have going. I have two egret 2 cabs and am doing a 4P tmnt cab at the moment. Also have a collection of a couple dozen pcbs. On the lookout for a few bits and pieces I need for the cabs for now and then a couple more pcbs.
Actively seeking: galaga 88 pcb, Viper Phase 1 cart, wonderboy pcbs

Hi everyone!
It all started with a New Astro City and Bubble Symphony. Then things started to escalate pretty fast. Now I own around 30 PCBs and a Naomi Upright Driver. And it's all good!
