I’m a huge Tron fan and I always hoped one day to re-create a Flynn’s Arcade in a basement man cave, complete with Secret Door entrance.

The project has gone way over budget so on a whim a friend said I should start a go fund me page for it. So here is my go fund me page. Obviously there are much more important campaigns out there you could contribute to, but I thought maybe some other Tron fans / old school arcade fans would love to see this through and heck hopefully stop by to play someday!

Quoted from flashinstinct:

I'm lost for words. I've had to delete my thoughts at least 4 times. Good luck.

Hopefully not lost for words in a bad way. Feel kinda funny starting a GoFundMe for this but it’s a dream of mine to recreate this in a very cool way and remain true to the arcade from the films. I can tell you I’ve been working my butt off with as much overtime as I can find for this and sold a house to help fund this.

Quoted from flashinstinct:

You have over $70K in LE pins including the CE JJPOTC and you are basically asking for funds. I'm sure selling one of these games will help you get your project off the ground. I'll leave it at that...sorry

Completely understand. Those will hopefully be purchased if I ever get the project completed. Have to do the room first.

Quoted from GorillaBiscuits:

Dude. You’re asking for 75k to trick out your personal basement and you already own 100k worth of pins? Your friend gave you TERRIBLE advice LOL. This is not going to end well, best of luck!

Yeah I’m starting to see that - oops. Didn’t mean to be a jerk. Really not trying to be. I’m working my butt off to make it happen and I totally don’t expect anyone to donate.
