OT: Coin-op Arcade Games

hey, i am curious if anyone on this board collects or owns coin-op arcade stuff? yes i am talking about the old coin munching machines that got hauled off to the land fills in the late 80's and early 90's.

reason i am asking is because i am getting the itch to add a couple of games and might be needing some parts and the local game operators do not deal with the public.

i currently have a JAMMA conversion cabinent with a few JAMMA game boards. i completed the cabinent and conversion several years ago but never had the $$ to expand. anyone on here a friend or relative with a game operator or collector?

Re: OT: Coin-op Arcade Games

zuknstein, those neo geos are really neat. if you can find a neo geo MVS (their stand up arcade system) then you can get all the games on MVS format way cheaper than you can for the neo geo home system.

i have been trying hard to locate an old nintendo "VS unisystem" arcade machine. these use interchangeable game boards so you can play any nintendo VS game in any VS cabinent. the reason i want one of these is even though most of the games are typical nintendo games, most all of them vary from the NES versions and for the most part are far more challenging. the bad part is since these VS arcade machines were large and have little to no collector value, most were tossed in the garbage dump.

Re: OT: Coin-op Arcade Games

What kind of stuff are you looking for? A friend of mine owns the largest route in northern Cal. They also have one of the largest collection of pinballs on the west coast.

They have a bunch of cabinets and boards that they are getting rid of. I'm not sure what kind of prices they are though. Send me an email and let me know what kind of stuff you are looking for. I can check with them and see what Jamma boards they've got for sale. The best email address to get me at is mmartian_1969 (at) yahoo.com

Re: OT: Coin-op Arcade Games

I buy old video games and pinball games when I find them cheap. I usually sell them on eBay after they've sat around the house for a while. Just about every major video game title from the late 70s to early 80s has passed through my hands over the last 10 years. I just recently sold a Gyrus on eBay. I'm presently looking for an old Tempest game. That's really the only game I couldn't master when I was a kid. I don't presently have any games in the house other than an Atari 2600 with about 700 different games. That sounds like a lot of games but there are about 3000 different titles known and more are constantly being found...

If I can help you with parts, cabinets or anything else just let me know. There are several places in the Baltimore / Washington DC area that sell used video games and parts - one of them is a 2 story warehouse with about 50K square feet of games and parts...
