    Looks pretty good if you want to play Raiden Fighters or whatever that arcade game is.

    So, do you set the game up, play it, then repack it?

    We don't have that kind of thing in America.

    Hopefully you found it on day 1.

    Oh I feel so bad for that game ! Lol. That looks like the set of one of those “evil video game” movies of the 80s

    Maybe they’re moving the location? Even the ceiling tiles are gone

    Did you leave a note? You might get a deal on 3 machines, it looks like the last time they bought was 2003.

    Rollercoaster Tycoon, Simpsons, What's the middle one?

    I usually set my games up more steep.

    That's just reverse steep. Extra easy.
