Besides John Yates in Illinois, who are the other major dealers that sell cabinets?

Oh gosh, I have included several businesses in this database. Joystix in Houston, Chattanooga Pinball, plus some of the arcades here also sell their cabinets as well. It's not easy to filter out, but there are several out there. I would start with the phrase Amusement and go from there.

EDIT: Oh yeah, I almost forgot. The most famous business in the database. Richie Knuckles.

Alpha Amusements in Madison Heights, Michigan sells their games. http://www.alpha-amusements.com/Games%20for%20Sale%20Main.html Talking to the game techs, it's always good to call and see what they have and see if you can talk them into fixing up the machines a little more before the official sale.

Games I'm having trouble finding are:

Kung Fu Master
Haunted House
Death Race (I know... It's rare)
Marvel vs Capcom

You would be better off just making a Death Race than actually finding one

There's one for sale in Arizona but it doesn't have coin doors.

I'm investigating all angles of opening a place in Ottawa. May take a couple years to get it completely correct with the location, games and staff.

Don't buy it on my account. I'm still just researching all the start up costs in doing an arcade/bar. Finding the games in good condition at a sweet price is not easy.

With Marvel vs Capcom, you'd probably be better off just buying X-Men vs Street Fighter or some other CPS2 game, then buying the Marvel vs Capcom CPS2 board and just swapping the boards out.

You can find an X-Men vs Street Fighter or Marvel Super Heroes for dirt cheap at an arcade auction. Look around for the closest arcade auction to you.
