want to play. Since then, Aurcade has explaned it's tools to include the Aurcade
Tournament System (ATS) and collection tracking. No matter if you are a classic
arcade gamer or more modern, you should be able to find it here. The site will

such as Pole Position, Speed Buggy, Arkanoid, Double Dragon, Altered Beast, and others. Joining Aurcade in 2008 gave Graham the opportunity to combine his interests
in gaming competition, web development, and statistics. Since then Graham has worked closely with Aurcade on the new Scoreboard System, reffing and managing tournaments,
plus developing new ideas for future projects. As Head of Officiating, Graham helps manage game formats/rules, location entries, and helps drive Aurcade policy.
Clint "Nashvillan" Wilder
Chief Database Administrator
Clint is from Nashville, TN where he still resides today. He is an avid collector of European board games and poker player. Clint first became interested
in video games as a child when he played Space Invaders and Asteroids at a local bowling alley. He definitely caught Pac-Man fever when it first came out and
still plays it to this day. He owned an Intellivision as a kid and was one of the lucky ones to own a copy of Kool-Aid Man. He has continued to play a wide
variety of arcade and pinball games to this day and hopes to compete in arcade or pinball tournaments in the future. A few years ago, Clint discovered there
were websites that had database listings of arcades all over the country and thought that it would be neat to contribute to such a list. Shortly thereafter,
he received an email saying the listing site was being shut down and all of the information was being transferred to some other site called Aurcade.com. He
checked it out and quickly went to work reporting arcade machines in his local area. Before long, he found himself updating and adding machines and locations
from all over the world as popularity of the site grew. What started as just a few thousand games in a couple hundred locations nearly tripled in just two short
years. Today he continues to donate his time and effort into maintaining and updating the Aurcade games database.
