That's awfully large for being the smallest. If you use an OLED screen, you should be able to squeeze a space invaders or breakout clone into something a quarter of that size or smaller.

Stupid design. That thing can only hold maybe 6 quarters, tops.

That's what I was gonna say... does it accept quarters. Because if it doesn't take quarters, then it's not an arcade game.

Ooh, arcade thread. Anyone have an arcade room? What games?

I've long fantasized about owning an arcade cabinet(s), but at the rate I move around it never seemed worthwhile to be loading and unloading in a truck every year.

You can always go with a mame setup or a multicade. Hardcore arcade enthusiasts frown on them, but those guys can be dicks.

I've got a Midway multicade with 12 games on it including Sinistar and Satan's Hollow.  I also have a Heathkit/Brunswick Aspen pinball machine so there is a double whammy for the purists.  Not a coin mech in sight.  Suck it haters, they're both a blast and affordable as well.

Personally, I like to have the originals myself. But I don't blame people for going the multi route either. I'd hate to see someone take a working Tron or something and turning it into a MAME, but if it's not working/missing parts, I say go for it. I've multi'd a few Donkey Kong cabinets myself.

Currently in my collection, I have:

Popeye
Donkey Kong Jr
Donkey Kong in an original red cabinet (around the time of Radar Scope)
Golden Tee Complete
Centipede
Pole Position
BurgerTime
Nintendo Red Tent
Q*bert cocktail
Donkey Kong Cocktail
Missile Command Cocktail
Dig Dug cocktail
Playchoice 10 I made to look like Wild Gunman from Back to the Future II.
Stellar Wars pinball machine

I've had another 20 or so come and go. I started with a badly MAMEd Chase HQ. It all went awry from there.

Or build a Bar-top, like I'm doing. With all the equipment it will weigh less than 50 lbs. I am using an LCD instead of a CRT to save weight/space. (blasphemy to some. I don't give two shiats what internet people like) Look up the BYOAC website, that's a good one dedicated to MAME builds/resto/etc. Fun hobby. Time consuming. Oh. What's spending money again?

The site has Asteroids, and Breakout too.

Since I just put MAME on my phone, I'm getting a kick out of this.

The MAME cab is in the garage still in pieces in the middle of a changeover to a 21" LCD from the 15" that was originally in it. One of these days when the kids are old enough to be out of the way a little more I'll finish it. By that time I'll probably be using the phone as the CPU with a BT controller and an MHL connector to the display. Not a bad goal now that I think about it.
