Went to Free Play in Richardson, TX, today (first arcade in 2.5 years-ish – we’re finally back at a 189 seven-day covid average in DFW and we got there at 3PM, nearly had the run of it). I won’t do a number, but I had a pretty great time as a matter of scale – I just did not expect to find many of these machines in Richardson, TX. I did not expect to finally see the credits on Dolphin Blue or credit feed my way through a DoDonPachi cab today.
Cons: the music drowned out too much arcade sound, the food is basic, a dumb family bogarted the table that had a Saturn & PVM on it without even touching the Saturn, Crazy Taxi was down
Pros: $12 after tax for unlimited free plays on all machines, focus on local beer, some cabs I didn’t get pics of include Power Stone 2, Melty Blood, Killer Queen, Soul Calibur II, Psyvariar, Gate of Doom, a mid pinball selection, and Bishi Bashi
edit: got on my PC and added more than one pic cause my phone was being a phone
