I'll try to swing by if I can. I went to the one in June and I was a bit disappointing with the selection, but there were a LOT of games. They had a really nice Dig Dug cabaret I wanted... but, unfortunately, the board was fried and I'm already working with the same problem on my upright cab...

Nope, cabaret.

"The mini or cabaret is a shorter version of the upright cabinet. It also has a smaller monitor. Mini cabinets save space and are easier for small children to play than some full-size cabinets."

It was one of these:



It looks kind of silly in a picture but it's stunning in real life. The wooden sides add a lot to the design... shame the one in this pic was painted D:

My apologies,

I have never heard anybody even hint at the fact that they were called cabaret's before ever. If I run across any, would I label them as such in the database? There's quite a few Chuck E Cheese's in the area and I'm sure they have some.

That's the first time I have ever seen a Dig Dug cabaret. The cabarets I see most often are Ms. Pac. (One of which has hearts instead of dots).
