Our aircon was a welcome relief in the main bar this week though it struggled in the arcade room!

As British summer returns to its usual sunshine and showers a reminder that the whole venue is open 11am to 1130pm EVERY day

Fault ridden Dirty Harry has gone off for some TLC , Demoman has gone from mouldy scrapheap to NEARLY playable after an hour of Paul Brookfield magic. Getaway is back off loan and more games are due to be squeezed in soon.

Most popular pins last week

1. Deadpool
2. Star Trek TNG
3. Munsters
4. Family Guy
5. Iron Maiden

After Getaway came back (that's that police chase one nobody has ever heard of these days LOL) to join High Speed , thanks to Andy Mania the first two Black Knight games are back together. Just a small matter now of sorting coin door , fitting a new plunger and PINLED display and we are good to go.

Well BK2K works bar the coin handling stuff
Ive experimented with "ligtning white" pinleds which look different but on reflection l should have gone yellow!

The actual display itself looks better in person - the photo makes it look stupidly low contrast - though even in person it's not a much better fit for BK2K ...

Would look great in Rollergames, BTTF , Phantom of the Opera...?

Club and arcade is open today and every day from 11am to 1130pm

Deadpool has overtaken ST TNG as "king of the pins" but the air hockey table beats everything (and of course is the cheapest piece of equipment in the room!)

next week we hit 6 months and at last the arcade is free of clutter

Andy Mania has done a sterling job getting games up to speed and will be tackling the oldies soon

he has left Starship Troopers for Paul Brookfield to win his battle with. Bloody Sega!

thanks to Terry Suillivan for overhauling Dirty Harry. Very challenging game!

keen to have the classic line up and running in time for the Xmas Cracker

a few games are switched off simply as they cannot take coins and no other reason

finding it harder to find site ready video games than pins. you would think there would be warehouses full of them!

Munsters and JP vying to be the most popular pin but theme is paramount here. Thunderbirds has out performed the so called top 5 since day one

That Starship Troopers is bloody mental. Lack of (known working...) spare Whitestar parts makes for a miserable time solving issues.
