    I completely understand if you guys have to do it while I'm gone on work-related "work".

    As soon as I took this yearlong fulltime National Guard job I knew my social life was going to be shot. I work Tuesday-Friday 6:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and "overtime" as needed. I'm on salary so overtime doesn't help me at all. :-\

    On a side note, does anybody have a cheap arcade in the Oklahoma City metro area for sale? I've been eyeing a 2-slot Neo Geo but my wife thinks $325 delievered is too much.

    I'd love even a cheap Neo-Geo conversion at this point but would take anything that is cheap enough for the wife to approve. The cheaper the better but I'd like a cartridge-based system so I can change the games out pretty easily. A sub $200 Neo Geo would be ideal.

    On a second side note, for a future get-together, I live in a about 1250 square foot townhouse in Shawnee, which isn't exactly halfway between Tulsa and OKC but close, and wouldn't mind having a get together here with enough notice to get everything cleaned and organized. My wife and I moved in Aug and still have boxed up stuff around the place. I have the downstairs with a 32" SDTV and an upstairs with a 30" HDTV and could probably set up another TV in each room if people brought them. I have no objections as long as I had plenty of time to get things settled and cleared with the "CEO/CFO aka Wife". And as long as everything pitched together cash for pizza or something and up to 15 people or so.

    Sorryu for the rant, been drinking as the wife is at work on New Years Eve and I've had basically a two-week vacation from work so I've been deeeerunk the whole time.

    Flack mentioned this earlier but if you're looking for an arcade hookup in Oklahoma, this is a good place to start:

    I went through a stage like that. I didn't need two weeks off though, just an hour or so. :P

    I'm still up for something like this yes. But the 12th is also out for me. I have my boys that weekend and while they would have a good time, there really isn't that much room for them and their stuff they bring.

    Also, my house is very small...I mean...really really small. Like just over 700sf total space in my place. I can hook up more TVs in other places and get some consoles out. But if more than like 6 or so people are in here...it would get crowded...no doubt.

    So for me...the weekend of the 19th is the only available time this month.

    I can't do anything on the 19th. That's just a couple days after I start school again. If more people will be available that day then I'll have to skip this one. LMK if anybody else would rather do it on the 19th.

    Nah, we'll do it on the 12th. I just wanted to make sure we had a good turnout. I guess someone else can plan the next one and they can choose the date. So, 12th it is. Now, what should we do?

    EDIT: Nevermind on that Tulsa auction. My source turned out to be low down, no good, storyteller. Please direct all hate mail to Flack. ;-)

    Yeah, I got bad info on that too. The one in Dallas is still on; unfortunately, that's where I'll be.

    Are there any good arcades here in OK? That would be a cool trip but I haven't seen anywhere to play (aside from the crappy ones that some of the malls have).

    As far as I know, Cactus Jack's is the biggest and best in OKC. I haven't been there in a couple years and the last time I went, the retro selection left something to be desired. However, they do have air hockey, Galaga, and Neo Geo. So they have most of what I go to play. The only problem is that the Galaga cab is one of those 20th anniversary combo ones, so the screen & control stick throw me off.
    Flack would probably know more about it than I do though. As a matter of fact, he has a section on his website dedicated to the subject:

    The 12th is almost here so it's time for some firm plans. Let's make it 1:00 at Cactus Jacks. I'll wear a white SNU hat.

    Here's the website:

    http://www.cactusjacksokc.com/

    Cactus Jack's is located just north of NW 10th street on Council road, which is an exit off of I-40. The address is 1211 N. Council road.

    If you're going solely for classic games, you'll probably be disappointed. The last time I was there, there were only four or five classics left. Still, it's a fun place to check out, with lots of restaurants close by.

    I'll see everyone there. I'll be the crazy bald guy.

    edit: I'm bringing at least one friend (and possibly 2) who love to play games, too.

    I was there but I didn't see you. You don't happen to be the guy who grabbed the high score on Galaga, do you? There was only one other person that I saw play that game besides me.

    Yes that was me...in the white SNU hat.
    Were you the guy that played Galaga right before I did?
    What time did you leave? I stuck around until 2:55.

    I left at right around 3. I think I was the only other person that played Galaga (that I know of). I think you may have also been playing on a pin when I sat down at the Tales from the Crypt one. I had the bald head and was wearing a sweater.
    I was happy to see both Galaga and Robotron there, as well as a decent selection of pins. The place was also quite a bit larger than I had expected. Makes me wish we still had an arcade in Stillwater.

    I don't recall the name of it but yeah, I played one round on a pinball machine. I wish they had Apollo 13 pin, man. I never see those anymore. Unless someone else is on it, I usually go straight to the Galaga cab when I go to an arcade.
