  • EM For Sale / Wanted Section

    Do you think it would be a good idea to have a separate section for EM Arcade Sales or EM Arcade Wanted?

    I normally post in the rec.games.pinball or pinball section as they allow EM arcade games. Ebay.com has a arcade video and non-video section so thought it may be good idea to do the same on AA.

              I have only ever seen 1 EM arcade game.

              It was a "killer shark" game.

              We went on to find a manual and schematics on the net, and I helped the guy fix the machine

              He has had the machine for 10 years and would never part with it (My guess)

              He chucked backflips when it worked for the first time in 5 years.

              Hard to find, hard to see, Harder to get I imagine, but good luck. (Easy to fix) LOL

                I'm an EM convert and I'm all for it as long as theres a demand. I'd also like to see more people pull their finger our and document their restores.

                  I spoke to the Battlezone guy - with the EM Shark Game

                  He at least agreed to talk, so that's good news

                  He told me everything has it's price, and said his mate has 9 of the EM Games

                  Also said he is looking for a 1950's pinnie and would probably trade the Shark game for something like that.

                  Good luck Derek

                  If you get it, it weighs a freakin tonne (Well, much more then an Arcade game anyway)

                    I'm in that minority, I think there's a fair few owners of EM games out there, but they're fairly quiet since they're not all chasing the latest 123479832918-in-1 board for their EM cabinet

                      Help make the minority known, so we can see there is enough people to warrant a seperate section

                        ROFL so true!

                        I didn't ever set out to collect EM's but fate and luck intervened and I've ended up with a swag of them. I have to say I'm constantly amazed at the pre-tranisitor engineering and it's sooo satisfying to breathe some life back into them and see them function again. they are a lot of fun but of course without the depth of modern games. they make fantastic talking pieces and I love to see other people play a game and enjoy themselves when some of features appear. they also seem to be very reliable after they have been fixed up. there will always be real estate in my games room for them. Its really great to see increased interest in them and people willing to restore them and display them with pride.

                        I certainly encourage ppl to give them a try as it does open up a whole other dimension to the hobby

                            That would be great. I am always on the lookout for more EM games.

                              Can I ask this question:

                              Of those who do own an EM Arcade Machine, would you ever sell it?

                              AND would it go un-noticed if up for sale in the regular for sale area?

                              It would be snapped up in no time I am sure


                              Maybe a sub category for EM restores, but the list could go on forever, and get confusing
