This Saturday I’m off on my semi-annual journey to Weirs Beach, NH for a day at FunSpot with some equally loser-ish friends of mine. They’ve got over 150 classic arcade games and at least 40 pinball machines (including my personal favorite, “Fun House”).
My buddy has drawn up our itinerary:
8:00am - meet at Richmond, VT park and ride
10:00am - arrive at Atlas Fireworks in Belmont, NH
11:00am - arrive at Funspot in Weirs, NH
12:00pm - break for lunch
12:30pm - play video games
2:00pm - drink beer
2:20pm - play video games (possibly pinball)
3:30pm - drink beer
3:50pm - play games
4:30pm - drink beer
4:50pm - use rest of tokens playing skeeball to win fabulous prizes
6:00pm - go get dinner
7:00pm - head back to VT
9:30pm - arrive at Richmond, VT park and ride
Any classic games you guys want me to play in your stead?
Samurai Shodown 1 and 2. Not that the others are bad, and not that they’re the most classic of classic arcade games, but my friends and I dumped so many quarters into Neogeo machines thanks to SS 1 & 2 that we should all be majority shareholders in SNK-Playmore.
I don’t see it on the list, but Halley’s Comet was a SHMUP I haven’t seen anywhere else. It’s been a few years since I was there, so maybe it broke.
Rastan isn’t there anymore either? Man.
Do they still have the candy cranes? That was always where our last couple of tokens went.
