Finally I have wallbox games that just seem to get moved around from room to room :-











There are another 6 wallbox machines not yet photo'd 

Then there are loads of pinballs in the sheds out back (not yet photo'd) as well as a handful of videogames

LOL

The only machine I could get out of the house in less than an hour would be the Joust (which is probably in my top 5) 


Also on my very important cab list would be all of the Atari cabarets (especially the super rare Dig Dug) Star Wars, Paperboy and Super hangon

So I hope not to have a fire
