Your friendly neighborhood Gameroom Junkies were able to go on yet another arcade operator warehouse raid recently. The gentleman who owned the facility had been operating games since 1985 and is still in operation, but has to downsize to a smaller work space. Music to our ears! We were able to swoop in and while many of the games were enticing, we were on the hunt for diamonds in the rough in terms of parts. Circuit boards, manuals, marquees, and more kept us digging through his shop for hours. We left happy. Check out our video below to see a quick runthrough of the warehouse. We’ll update the site with another video later to show off some of our haul.
I’ve been in business since 85 myself and still enjoy the thrill of a raid. It usually ends with a big truck and my team hauling out machines and parts to keep my own dream alive.
