We just wanted to give an update. Starting Monday January 11th we will be open from 11AM to 11PM. Per the state order, we will be restricted to 25% capacity. No reservations are required, and it will be first come, first serve. Things are coming together smoothly and almost all the games are ready to go. See you all soon!

This is terrible news. :(

Peace to All! We have been working hard, and we wanted to start the New Year by unveiling our survival and rebuild plan to our supporters... Instead, we have to report the first major losses in our famous preservation arcade collection.

Our manager came in today to prepare for moving day, when we will strive to safely transport over 70 vintage, mostly pristine arcade games into storage. Instead he was greeted by water...a lot of it. Gallons and gallons of it, pouring through the light fixtures as pictured and destroying things in the arcade one by one. (If you've been following our story, you may not be surprised to hear its a result of the building being able to rapidly crumble by the same guy who kicked us out in the middle of a pandemic to make room for Julio's Brews and Brats sausage offer.)

So far our brand-new-in-box 1978 Atari Subs, Atari Crystal Castles, Nintendo Mario Bros, and few spare monitors took a swim.

COVID has made it impossible to make any basic income at either store for 10 months and counting. Then our lease was terminated for aforementioned reasons. When it rains it literally pours! Everything is shuffled within the building and tarped up and we fast and pray that it doesn't find new pathways through the drop ceiling as we countdown to move out day later this month.

Alameda still stands as of today. As always, we cherish your support, and we refuse to leave our post as arcade preservationists. We will continue to strive to keep you up to date on our rescue efforts, and preserve what we can for a better tomorrow. Peace!

High Scores

Goodbye, B Street. (amended carefully after informative feedback) WHERE IS THE LIE?

Despite paying an agreed rent throughout the COVID closure with no income, our landlord has evicted us. We were very hurt to discover it was owner of a neighboring wiener business, Julio Romero, VP of our Downtown Business Association and owner of our neighboring business Brews & Brats, who made an offer and as a result will soon be occupying it. Unfortunately, this means the expansion of more alcohol based social gathering and, if there’s room for less, less family fun in downtown Hayward.

This is a huge hit to our mom and pop trying-to-survive COVID budget, as we now are facing the costs of relocation, storage, even removing our sign is $500 we haven’t made since March. We think its also a huge hit to downtown Hayward, because we believe a downtown needs more than just bars and restaurants to survive. Its our policy to give to every school that asks. We have proudly received awards for using our business as a springboard into instructing business classes at local high schools and basic electronics to area youths. We were not born in Hayward, but we have stayed involved in the larger community as if we were. Every Wednesday one of our customers would come spend uninterrupted time with his grandson. Video games paired with ice cream is amazing. All of these subtleties that benefit families in Hayward will be lost. You’ve got a lot of bars and alcohol. A lot of wieners for sale like Julio and his wares, but not many towns have a classic arcade.

We have no idea how Julio, the officials who have considered this, our landlord, or his patrons can feel good about this. There are many open storefronts and it would seem more appropriate than pushing our business out, Julio could pick one of those. We invite you to let the Hayward City Council know that more support for entertainment venues and other “yellow tier” businesses is necessary to rebuild a vibrant downtown. These are the details as we know them.

Every share of our posts and our GoFundMe helps us to keep peddling, keep our collection housed, and hopefully reopen our doors in Alameda and/or find a new home in Hayward. Thank you to everyone for your continued support. Hayward needs more than wieners.

*Edited to note that Charlotte's Ice Cream was not evicted, but rather chose to close. As per the owner's note within the comments, they had a buyer for their business but in the end, Julio made the better business proposal. We can't speak to their experience, but they've been longtime friends to our landlord so we imagine it was better than ours.

First #PPCLONE in hand! #speechless
Can't wait to try this sucker out!

[08/05/17]   So...me from fifteen years ago apparently can not count.

I was measuring the pieces that I drew up (and, cut today).

Something seemed off, so I consulted the plans.

Sure enough... One of the pieces is off by an inch. In width. I could have worked around an inch in height, but oh no...

After fifteen years, it's time to work on this, again. Any guesses as to what it is, based on this photo?

This Old Game

Buyer Beware!
It appears the infamous Ram Controls is resurfacing..on both ebay and etsy and tried KLOV but he was pretty quickly found out, block and banned. May be multi-persons but they are all the same mfg Ram Parts.
This is a part I have left from Dave Adams from before the nuclear blast.
notice how the ebay auction for the same part avoids showing you the top of the molex.
