Arcade Aims to 'Level Up' to New Pin Machine
5/24/2013 1:58:55 AM By Aaron Auzins
Starting in 2005, online sensation Kyle MacDonald powered through a journey that began with a lowly, red paperclip, and ended with his own two-story farmhouse. Drawing inspiration from MacDonald's year-long ordeal, a Michigan arcade is looking to follow suit and trade a series of items with the end goal of securing a Jersey Jack Wizard of Oz pinball machine.
If successful, in a way, the trades will take the Klassic Arcade of Gobles, Mich., through a full circle as the original item up for trade was a custom pinball. The ball (pictured) was designed with a swirl pattern by Matt Riesterer of Back Alley Creations. Riesterer was added to the Jersey Jack team in 2011 and worked on the Wizard of Oz pinball machine.Continue to the Article...
Utah Arcade Preps for Five-Year Mark
5/21/2013 1:56:45 AM By Aaron Auzins
While many sources continually declare arcades as dead, Game Grid Arcade in West Valley City, Utah, is bucking the trend as it looks to put five candles on its birthday cake this June.
Adam Pratt opened Game Grid Arcade June 8, 2008, and, surprisingly, during this time he still had competition from multiple sources near his location. As Pratt entered unfamiliar territory with his new business, he admitted he had high expectations.
"Overblown expectations is probably a good way to describe it," he said. "I had read that it's very easy for new business owners to have rose-colored glasses on. They assume that they will do very well out of the gate, but that is rare. 'Build it and they will come' only takes you so far as they need to come back more than once. So even thinking I was holding back, reality was still far below what I expected. It was more difficult than I thought and I learned more after opening about what games people really wanted."Continue to the Article...
Chase for an Annual Accolade Heating Up
5/17/2013 8:56:03 AM By Aaron Auzins
When Galloping Ghost Arcade first opened its doors Aug. 14, 2010, it became clear gamers were still attracted to the coin-op titles they grew up with. As gamers come and go, a certain segment of the arcade's player base stays hungry for the pursuit of high scores and is first in line when a new arcade cabinet is installed on the floor. This segment continues to grow each year at the arcade, and with this mind, Galloping Ghost Arcade unveiled its Gamer of the Year Award at its first-anniversary event.
The winners of the award have since been immortalized at the arcade and have received a plaque for their dedication and contributions, but, more importantly, in the most recent year since its introduction, it has arguably brought something more prestigious to the arcade - a chase for the accolade and a tight-knit community that frequents the hobby hotspot.Continue to the Article...
Obscure Games Also Attract High Score Players

Although the spotlight often shines on the classics of the '80s when it comes to high scoring, when you dig past the surface, you'll find plenty of talented gamers hungry for top scores in even the most obscure game titles.
One of Galloping Ghost Arcade's recent score wars saw multiple gamers vying for the title in the low-key release Metal Black. The game was released in the United States in 1991 by Taito and was even quietly tucked away in the Taito Legends 2 compilation package released roughly 15 years later for home consoles in the previous generation. A horizontal shooter in the same vein as Taito's own Darius series, the title's outstanding mechanics include building up weapon power to unleash a massive beam and an impressive-for-its-time bonus stage that has players locking on to enemies.Continue to the Article...
