I saw this on Craigslist right after hearing the Magfest part of this month's podcast. The timing couldnt have been better.



Full size arcade game - $300
Full size "Disk of Tron" arcade game for sale. Does not work. I believe it is an electric issue or a fuse. Pick up only. Has been in our garage.

The fuse? Something tells me it couldn't be that easy.

Sounds like a fake ad. NOONE would sell a DOT that cheap. Seriously. If it's true and in your neck of the woods go and get it. That's a $700-$1000 machine (provided the cab is in good condition) not working easy!

I wish I could as its fairly close and I enjoy DOT. However, its time to pay the rent and the game wont do me no good without a place to stay.
I need to stay off of Craigslist when I have no money.

One thing I'd like to hear (don't think it's been brought up on the show), is what to look for at auctions and some basic tips. The best approach to actually getting your machine after you've paid for it and stuff like that.

Have you guys thought of making certain segments of the show enhanced? A few action figure podcasts I listen to will put pictures up for what they're talking about as you listen to the show. I think something like that would be helpful for the top 10. Especially this months with talking about the art.

I did a HWFB all about auctions back in Show #10, and there is more auction content in part 2 of this panel to air next month.

We usually have links in the show notes, pretty easy to find.

I figured that with part 2, you'd be going into more detail. I'll have to grab show #10 and get a refresher.

Can't really go to a link while at work, so being able to take a glance over at my iPhone and see a picture of what's being talked about in place of the RGR logo is what I was thinking of.

Great show as always guys.

Although I'm no pinball connoisseur, or "art fag" for that matter, I'm really enjoying the top 10.

The top 10 was great, I learnt so much about the health and safety aspects of launching rockets into space ;-)

The live news just made me think even more that there should be an RGRU kickstarter, with 1 tier, $10, and everyone who donates gets put in a list of people to take the now vacant third seat every month ;-)

In all seriousness we should get listeners in on the audio as well like we did a while back.

I would like to join in. I have a lot to say about a lot of things, although when I speak about most things most of things I speak cannot be understood by most of the people listening to the things I speak.

But from what I understand, your Live News is essentially silence with other users chatting in a box on the side.

That's about the size of it.

In the spirit of backglasses, I would like to mention Time 2000 and Middle Earth which are Atari pinballs where the backglasses have nothing behind them.i.e., no moving parts or circuit boards except for the light bulbs lighting them up. The score displays are where the playfield card holder is and the circuit boards are under the playfield.
Anyhow these are 2 pinballs I remember playing as a kid and would love to play them again if I could find a working one out in the wild.

Aah OK, but you should at least be in the adjoining room and controlling the camera
