Building a Home Arcade – Learn in a Day

Deciding what Arcade Cabinet is best for you

My youth was spent in Arcades back in the 80’s and 90’s and now with the explosion in Home Arcade Cabinet makers bringing that arcade to your house has become a reality. The only problem is there are so many out there to choose from. And considering the cost of some of the devices making a spur of the moment decision can lead to buyer remorse. That is where this course comes in. I will guide you through all of the details from the ‘Big Players’ in the Home Arcade industry as well as cheaper options. By the end of the course you can be confident that the machines you end up selecting will be the right ones for you. I will also take the time to give you some live demos on my own personal machines. We will touch on the accent and decor pieces every home arcade needs as well. And finally we will round out the course by learning about Digital Pinball as well, which spoiler alert, is awesome and should be considered for any home arcade. I have a real passion for this subject and I think you will find that come through in the course!
