Mini LEGO Arcade Machines: Tiny Things Are Awesome
Among my many geeky pursuits, two of my favorites are classic arcade games and LEGO. So when I stumbled onto this collection of custom LEGO arcade machines, I had to bust open the piggy bank (aka my PayPal account) – since that’s where I save my spare change to buy stuff that I don’t NEED but that I really WANT.

I always loved playing Atari’s vector-based arcade games back in the 1980s. Games like Tempest, BattleZone, and Quantum were some of my favorites. And then there was Star Wars.

SuperImpulse MicroArcade Games Are The Size of a Credit Card

If there’s one game I always loved playing at Chuck E. Cheese’s when I was a kid, it was Skee-Ball.

Arcade 1UP 3/4 Scale Arcade Cabinets Let You Live Your Ricky Schroder Dreams
One of the shows I liked back in the ’80s was Silver Spoons with Ricky Schroder. It didn’t have an awesome talking car or a jacked dude that turned green if you made him mad. What it did have was a rich dude and his son living in a mansion and they had their own video game arcade… and Buck Rogers’ girl.
