between 60-70 degrees on a 80-90 degree day. It's very comfy in summer time.

Pretty nice collection.

I have owned two units in the past.

Pac-Man original 1980 cocktail table and a 1981 Centipede cocktail table.

I ended up .. giving them away when I got married to wife #1... I hate her

Well we're finally able to to excavate our way to the machines which probably havn't been seen for 15+years! It looked like we were on an archeological dig for king tuts tomb with all the dust blowing out of there. There's so much dirt on these (barn on a farm) that you could grow some crops on them! Well we dust some off and run an extension cord into the ol barn to see if we could get one of the machines to explode on us. We got Break OUt? to fire up we have a fun little gamemanship among my friend, his dad and I for a couple of hours.
Sweet!! I love going on barn and warehouse raids for these. There are old arcade operators all over the country that have these stashed away thinking no one wants them. You remember what any of the titles were? Did they all work? I'm doubting it

We only tried two out and one worked. The other game had a fuzzy pic. I'll have to get the names of the other machines when I go out there again. One I do remember is 1942!. That is one of my alltime favorites as I could play it for ever on 1 quarter. Sometimes I would be on it so long I would have to give the game to somebody else so I could go home. Unfortunately it looked to be in sad shape so we didn't bother trying it out.

nice games there. if anyone is interested and wants to relive the old games, there is a program been round for years called

MAME

multiple arcade machine emulator

http://mamedev.org/

theres a few things to it. first you need the executable files and you need the ROMS

download the roms from the net.
point the mame file to the roms directory and play all the original games u can think of like bezerk, gyruss, pacman, star force, donkey kong etc

there is a few thousand games it emulates.
all games were copied from the original game roms, so if u own an original game board and the rom dies, just copy the rom from the mame rom directory and burn to eprom and drop in to the game board and your away!
