Hi guys, long time arcade lover here. Grew up in Christchurch ,NZ , spending all my 20c prices at Wizards and Penny Arcade.
We had 'spacies' at the takeaway shops and at the corner diaries (shops), and home Atari 2600 ??
During lockdown purchased a FOTB conversion, with a game elf 512-1 setup. The missus hates it but kids love it!
Reliving days of street fighter and bubble bobble ??
Cheers ??

There used to be some great arcades in Bath, The Crystal rooms and Quazar were two but there were quite a few. All gone now though.

Welcome!

Yes, the 'video mad house' in the early 90's, on the corner of St James's Parade - always spent time in there when visiting.

Located in a basement so you had to know where the entrance was. Had new games on release perhaps related to being near Future Publishing HQ? they expanded over the road to take the ground floor in Quazar.
