Mirrors & Crazy Lights

I had a vision for installing a floor to ceiling mirror at the far wall of my arcade game room. Had it professionally installed. Literally makes the room look twice as long. The room is 40′ long, currently with 14 pins along the wall.

I also installed LED lights along the top, which run along the 3 other walls and are mirrored, creating the super long room effect.

Even when you are standing in the room, knowing you are looking at a mirror, it still confuses you.

I am hosting a launch party for the new Full Throttle. It is also a fundraiser for the Geneva Centre for Autism, which is a great resource for families with autism providing family education and support, social skill building groups, an early intervention program, behaviour/communication analysis and intervention planning, parent, sibling and peer support groups, family resource services, adult support groups, respite and so much more.

All games will be on token play with 100% of all money raised donated. I will be donating all machines, upkeep and also snacks. Water and soft drinks will be $2. I hope that it raises a lot of money.

The hours are 5pm to 10pm.

I had the extremely good fortune of receiving the very first Full Throttle game delivered to any customer in the world from Heighway Pinball in the UK.

Heighway is a brand new pinball company promising all new games with all new technology.

The new game has arrived and plays great and we will be having a Toronto launch party for it.

Pac Man’s Arcade Party

While I’m primarily a pinball arcade, I did have room for 1 upright arcade machine. I looked at multi-cade units but settled for a licensed Namco Pac Man machine featuring 13 licensed Namco games, set for coin-op play. The cabinet fit perfect near the entrace with the jukebox, fridge and token machine.

Tokens!!

IMG_1243

I’ve had a long standing desire to put all my machines onto tokens, just like a real old school arcade. I managed to find a working token dispenser that will accept money.

I think it will be fun to host a charity night, where all money inserted into the machine will be donated to XYZ charity. People play for real money, with a pocket of coins, Replays actually mean something, and people can feel good about it because it is all going to a worthy cause.

Some people raise money for their favorite charities by holding events or galas, me… I open up my arcade for charity :).

Shuffled some machines around for the arrival of The Walking Dead.
