The early 1980's was a great time to be a kid. With the creation of a new entertainment machine called the "Video Game", the world would change for the better. Arcades all over the world popped up offering anyone with a quarter in his pocket, time to become the saver of a universe or the best racer of the Grand Prix. Best of all I was part of this movement and have now started to relive the glory days of yesteryear by starting my own collection of these quarter eating monsters. My collection has started out with my favorite machine, which is Crazy Climber. I have given it its own Web page as I could not find a page devoted to this classic game. On the Crazy Climber page you can relive the days when arcade game manufacturers emphasized game play over graphic quality. As you can see below, as my collection grows, so do new pages on the games collected with the newest pages saluting Space Dual and Ms. Pac Man. ENJOY!

Back in the day, amusement auctions were plentiful in the New Jersey area, with the possibility of having three auctions a month at times. I tried to attend almost every one.

Unlike the workshop blog, this area is to cover larger projects and include more detail. An example would be the coverage of a reproduction mechanism like the moving Dalek that was on the Doctor Who pin or the moving earthshaker institute, for a Earthshaker pin, etc.
