My Games

(This page is under reconstruction from the old version at psaux.com/arcade/.  Not all of the content has been moved over and I have let it get way out of date.)

I started collecting arcade games when I realized I might want to play a working pinball at any given time, and that I really missed Atari’s Star Wars.

It turns out that I like maintaining and repairing games, too.

I’m always looking for cheap stuff that I can fix and play.

for sale list

Xenophobe KLOV Bally/Midway 1987 20 Sep 2001 30 Jan 2007 traded for Millipede; still have spare CPU & audio boards
Firepower II IPDB Williams 1983 15 May 2008 16 May 2008 I bought this at a pinball show and
sold it during the same show for a small profit without the game having ever moved. But, then, I didn’t have to clean the garage that day.
Back to the Future IPDB Data East Pinball 1990 16 May 2009 12 Jul 2009 I took this to CAX 2009, put a price on it because I needed to make space, but without the intent of really selling it. It sold anyway to a good home.
Black Hole IPDB Gottlieb 1981 23 Apr 2003 12 Jul 2009 After over six years, I was still
cleaning and working on this and unhappy with it. So I sold it.
Meteor IPDB Stern Electronics 1979 20 Dec 2008 13 Jul 2009 Nice game, but had to make space.
Millipede KLOV Atari 1982 30 Jan 2007 20 Jul 2011 Got this in trade for Xenophobe, and sold it at CA Extreme 2011. Great game.
Star Wars KLOV Atari 1983 21 Oct 2001 28 Jul 2012 The game that made me want to collect games. Accidentally
sold it at CA Extreme. So I bought another one.
A.P.B. KLOV Atari Games 1987 14 Jul 2001 28 Jul 2012 I sure could use a donut. I liked this but no one else really appreciated it. Wouldn’t mind getting another one.
Cleopatra IPDB Gottlieb 1977 15 Dec 2005 13 Jul 2012 This was a project that I mostly finished and then sold.
Stargate Williams 1981 2012 29 Jul 2012 Bought from T-Minus One. Sold at CA Extreme before I could really enjoy it. Oops.

Spring Break Premier (Gottlieb) 1987 May 2013 2014? Bought not working, resurrected computer and made it play. Tacky. Fun, but somewhat insane pinball.
Monte Carlo Premier (Gottlieb) 1987 9 Mar 2013 2014? Bought not working, resurrected computer and made it play. I kind of liked it when I bought it but not when I sold it.
Vegas Premier (Gottlieb) 1990  15 Dec 2015 16 Jul 2016 Sold to make space. This was in great shape; I just cleaned it. Exploitable scoring, though.
