This assignment was offered up by League member, Jason Gross of Rediscover the 80’s. I’ve got a pocket full of quarters and I’m heading to the arcade…
You’ve decided to build an addition onto your house, a rec room that will feature your very own fantasy video arcade. What games are on your shopping list?
The League is always open to new members! Got a blog? Write a post in response to the weekly challenge, and you’ll be included. It’s that easy!
Once you put up a post on your site add a comment below with the URL. Next Monday, I will put up a post here on Cool & Collected with a list of all the contributing blogs. Once that list is posted, if you haven’t already done so, try to incorporate at least three of your fellow League members’ links (but more would be great!) into the article you wrote on your site.
By cross-posting like this, we will help each other out by sending new readers to each other’s sites. Have fun!
(Wondering what the heck this is all about? We’re recruiting for this loose-knit, rag tag crew! Here are the details for contributing to The League.)
WHAT??!! I did this one already.
Very well, I suppose I could write a sequel… more to come!
(Great pick, Jason!)
Ha! Well, it’s a great inspiration for the rest of us! 😉
Shawn Robare says
I’ve rigged all the cabinets so there are no tokens needed!
big J says
Take it from a former arcade employee, that is amazingly easy to do.

Dude, come on! I need a size limit, otherwise I’ll be posting all day! I’ll try to limit myself when I get around to writing it…
Paxton Holley says
Oh man, great topic, but I did this once already.
I’ll submit that previous article (Wow! Was that TWO years ago?!):
PLUS, I’m in the middle of Superman Week so I don’t think I could get a sequel done anyway.
Paxton Holley says
FYI, I updated my old article with some links to Shawn and Classick Material’s articles.
Rich (The Nerd Nook) says
I’m in! New name and all =)
big J says
Well I have a bit of a headstart on THIS project, let’s see how far my wife will let me get!
Here’s a start, but you might have already guessed my choices if you’ve hung out at RD80s for awhile…

Awesome one this week, I brought quarters for everyone!
The Goodwill Geek says
I singled out pretty much just ONE game I HAD TO HAVE. You’ll see why.
Building up my future man cave with arcade gold (in my opinion)
The Trash Man says
Tougher than I thought to pick just a handful of titles, but here ya go…
