Beginning August 1st, I will be offering a monthly pass to the arcade for $35 for adults and $25 for kids! That’s good for any regular operating day including tournaments, ranking battles and most other special events. The pass will be good for 30 days from the day of purchase so you will get your months worth of play regardless of which day you make the purchase. You will also receive one half price guest pass and 10% off any purchases made at the media store during your 30 days! Any questions, call me at 513-874-8766 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org

Good news. Asteroids is up and running like a champion! Come set the high score so we have something to shoot for.
Media store update. Labels will be in this week. Now to get things priced and on the shelves for sale. Hopefully just a few more weeks until I can open the store. In the meantime I am always buying your unwanted cds, dvds and video games for cash so please drop in anytime during business hours. Open late so if you need some cash at say midnight on a Thursday, I can oblige.
Also, I can fix your scratched discs cheaper than anyone else in town. Depending on the severity of the disc, it will range from $1 – $2.50. Never pay more than $2.50 to have your cds fixed here. If you like your discs to look perfect but have a few that need some minor fixing, it’ll only cost a dollar! Remember, not all damaged discs can be fixed. Once the recorded material is punctured, it cannot be fixed. I can usually tell before doing the job so as to not waste your time and money. A discount can be arranged for multiple discs fixed.
As you may have noticed, we are currently closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. However, we are available for party or event rentals. If you have a group of 10 or more adults you can have the place all to yourselves! Discounted rates for parties of 20 or more. Call me at 513-874-8766 or email me at email@example.com with questions or to book an event.
Also, August weekends are booking up fast. If you are thinking of having a party in August, please call soon to ensure your spot.

I was preparing to break the bad news but instead I have the good news! X-men 6-player is now functioning 100%! It wasn’t easy and it seemed as though it was trying to destroy us, but we overcame. There will be a few games that won’t be quite ready for this weekend but should be ready for the grand opening. As of right now Donkey Kong, Asteroids Deluxe, Battlezone and Jurassic Park pinball are down. Asteroids should be running tomorrow. Battlezone is 50/50 for this weekend. Donkey Kong needs a cap kit so it’s not going to be up this week unless someone happens to have one lying around and can do it for me. Jurassic Park just went haywire a couple days ago and it is being looked at soon so we shall see.
More good news. My new Japanese Candy cab will be in tomorrow so that should be ready to go this weekend as well. Sometimes games get rattled in shipment so there’s always that chance it will need some work done but I am optimistic as usual.
2 more days until launch. Remember this weekend is a soft opening to make sure everything is running smooth for the Grand Opening event next weekend. Anyone who comes, please put in your suggestions and criticism. I aim to make the arcade a place where people want to hang out and have a good time so I am open to all suggestions. Also keep in mind that there hasn’t been much decorating done yet. There will be murals on the walls, posters, artwork and other fancy looking wall decorations. If you are interested in doing a piece of wall art for the arcade, contact me (Jesse) and we can see where that goes.
See everyone soon
5 More days until Arcade Legacy is open! Still working out some kinks and hopefully everything will be up and running (fingers crossed). There’s still a few games that just don’t want to be fixed. If anyone happens to have a remote monitor adjust board for a Wells Gardner monitor that they could sell me, you’d be my hero.
The media store is still in progress and will not be open for browsing yet. We will however be buying all of your unwanted CDs, DVDs and VIDEO GAMES for cash in the meantime!
