I was at the Willowbrook Mall today, when I noticed a large sign in the window of the exterior arcade "Fun N' Games" that said something to the effect of "everything inside is on sale - we are closing".
To the best of my knowledge, Fun N' Games is one of the few operating "arcades" left in Northern New Jersey, and one that I've enjoyed since I was a youngster.
While I haven't participated in any, I've been aware that they held game tournaments on a semi-regular basis, and the condition and upkeep of their machines was always excellent, controllers, buttons, monitors, etc, were always in good working condition. A testament to their in-house repair staff.
Now, I'm not really sure if anybody on the DP Arcade forums knows or knew anybody who ran that establishment, or whether or not there was any bad/good blood ... but I felt that this was worth mentioning either way.
Truly a sign of the times for North Jersey and "arcades" in general.
(The DP store is only about 20 miles... er did I say 20? Make that 7, yes, 7 MILES AWAY [thanks Joe] from Fun N' Games.)
I didn't see prices listed on any of the games, but like the sign said - everything was for sale. So, people who are interested might want to drop them a line.
