    Nurmix,

    I put together a quick blog (got the idea from you!):
    http://rfwarriorarcade.blogspot.com/

    Yes, I picked them all up locally. I started about 6 months back, spending hours thinking about my list. Over the past couple months several games came up on Craigslist in Portland. I wasn't expecting to find them so fast, things will probably slow down now, my others are more difficult to find I think.

    Arcade:
    Neo Geo MVS - Acquired
    DK Jr.- Acquired
    Tetris
    Stargate - Acquired
    Galaga - Acquired
    Ms. Pac-Man (dedicated)
    Asteroids or Asteroids Deluxe - Acquired
    Mortal Kombat II or III - Acquired
    Gauntlet 4-player (or II) - Can't get in basement..
    Ghosts-n-Goblins (or Ghouls n Ghosts)
    Salomon's Key
    Tron

    Pinball:
    Hobbit (new,will cost a bunch)
    Dungeons and Dragons
    Diner (one close to me fore $2,500)

    Maybe:
    Xevious
    Assault - Acquired
    Klax (mini)
    Rastan (or black tiger maybe)
    Mat Mania (nice conversion)
    Battlezone - on loan
    Super Mario vs. - should get soon, being built locally
    Moon Patrol
    Mario Bros.
    Time Crisis
    Sega Turbo

    That's a strong list of titles.

    I don't have a definitive list myself. Well, mentally there are a handful of "must haves", but I'm also open to considering what comes around that I may never have thought of, or didn't think I would ever see.

    Having said that, here are a few classics off the top of my head that I'd like to acquire:

    Sinistar (working a deal on one now)

    Pole Position (preferably one that's been "bullet-proofed", as they are known for their unreliability)

    Space Invaders

    Asteroids / Asteroids Deluxe

    Missile Command

    Star Castle (yes, even though I already have Fort Cosmos)

    Frogger

    Centipede

    Joust

    TRON


    ... and a couple pinball machines, although at this point I'm not sure which.

    Awesome list. There is a Pole Position II in my area for cheap, but I'm not sure if that's THE driving game I want. Still trying to figure that out.

    Speaking of drivers, I'd love to have a sit-down Night Driver too, but they don't exactly grow on trees..

    I don't see it anymore so I can't look. I'll keep my eye out now that I know you are looking for one.

    Cool, thanks.

    Just about to close the deal on a dedicated Sinistar...

    When you get the Sinistar cab will you post a youtube vid Nurmix? I can't believe you have Satan's Hollow and now might get Sinistar, all you need now is a pizza oven and a sleeping bag and thats a home.
