How do you determine the price of a vintage arcade game or pinball?
Much like any other vintage collectible, the prices of our classic games for sale do vary based on the physical condition of the machine and the intensity of the restoration. Also, the popularity, demand, and availability of a particular vintage arcade game or pinball machine title will determine its price. Most quotes are given for games that have undergone physical, mechanical, and electronic restoration.

What type of restoration work do you do on your vintage game machines?
Each of our used arcade games for sale, regardless of price, undergoes inspection, adjustment, and testing prior to being sold. This includes the inspection of monitors, joysticks, buttons, wiring, and power supply. We offer electronic upgrades for many classic games, which will be specified upon inquiry. We are also able to customize each game based on our customer’s desired look. Some arcade enthusiasts look for cabinets that have an original look and specification, while other gamers prefer a brand new reproduction look. Let’s chat and determine the best vintage game restoration for you!
Can I select which arcade games are on my Multi-Game cabinet?
The multi-game packages unfortunately cannot be combined. This is because some classic games are played on a monitor which is mounted vertically in a cabinet (such as Pac Man), and other games are displayed on a monitor that is mounted horizontally in the cabinet (such as Super Mario Bros). Combining games would result in a sideways display.
In addition, we currently are not able to add additional game titles to our Multicade packages because our boards are factory programmed. We stand by our authentic coin-op grade circuit boards! Be aware of machines that boast thousands of games on a single unit. Such units are PC-based and inferior in quality, reliability, and overall arcade experience.
Do the Multi-Game/ Multicade systems offer authentic game play? How are the colors? Sounds?
Our Multi-Game Packages offer authentic game play. The systems are manufactured based on the colors, sounds, characters, and game logic of the original circuit boards manufactured in the 80s. Authentic commercial arcade wiring harnesses, power supplies, speakers, joysticks, and coin mechanisms (if desired) are wired to the circuit board. This creates an overall “real” classic arcade gaming experience.
