    Hello all! It's been a long haul but I'm finally bringing a new Barcade to Kitchener/ Waterloo, located at

    247 King St N. Waterloo, ON N2J2Y8

    View attachment 10940 View attachment 10941

    Someone on cgcc asked about the game selection so thought I'd cross post here as well;

    I intend to rotate a fair bit so I've been collecting games for this project for a while now.

    I've got vids ranging from Robotron, Punch Out and Qbert (Qbert was a personal favourite in my arcade brat days so was a real grail for me), through Sf2, Mk2 and NBA Jam, up 2 player drivers and shooters.

    I'll likely run with 10-12 pins at a time, including 70's em's, 80's ss's, and dmd's from the 90's to current. Pin-Up, an original Medievel Madness and Guardians of the Galaxy (if it delivers on time) will be a few of the highlight pins.

    Rounding out the vids and pins will be a small handful of skill games; Ice Cold Beer, Fire Escape, Skee Ball etc...

    All in all there should be a selection of 35-40 games at a time based on my rough layouts, but I'll know better when I (finally) start moving games in this week!

    If all goes well I'll soft open before Christmas!

    Thanks again Luch ;). Figured I'd post in both pinball and arcade chat in just so no one misses it.

    I was really shooting for this Friday but too many moving pieces that are outside of my control unfortunately. I'm shooting for a soft open on December 29th....a night to invite friends, family, and my extended family in the pinball and arcade community to come out and see the place. Would love to see pbrev members out so if you think you can make it, please shoot me a PM.

    Cheers!

    My Wife and I visited your Barcade very recently and WOW, were we impressed! Amazing atmosphere, very reasonable prices, great games, including a lot of pins! We had a fantastic time and will be back with friends! Thank you very much for bringing the magic back!
