Hey Guys,

I just wanted to say hello! My name is Pieter and I am a Arcade enthusiast from The Netherlands. About 3,5 years ago I started the hobby within a Dutch community and in the meantime I have collected 4 cabs. I have a NAC, Sega Naomi rebuild/MAME, Woody with 2 slot MVS and recently bought a racing cab resto project to build a Outrun 2 setup.

Recently I started to look for arcades to visit and noticed that information is scattered around the internet. Therefore I decided to start a project to create a map with all arcade locations worldwide on my website arcadeuniverse.net . Currently I already found 138 locations and I have set myself the goal to have 500 arcades on the map before the 1st of July.

Next to an Arcade enthusiast I am also a husband and father of 2 sons, oldest being 5.5 years and the youngest being 1 year old. Both of them share the passion of blinking lights and loud speaker so I am sure the guys will follow in their fathers footsteps Grin

As said just wanted to say hi and love to hang out here to learn and read more about arcade gaming and sharing my knowledge with you guys as well.

Regards,

Pieter

Hey Terry,

Thank you for the support Cheesy. And I love doing it too to be honest. For my work I travel a bit now and again and that triggered my interest to find arcades as in The Netherlands we do not have so much of them especially not with real interesting stuff. And to be completely honest, I would be against a roadtrip now and again to visit some arcades Cool

So if anyone has any suggestions just let me know here or submit it on the website. Either way would be great.

Regards,

Pieter

Hey Guys, I am still looking for some additional arcades to add to the map. Feel free to have a look here: http://www.arcadeuniverse.net/arcade-map/

Are there any seriously good arcades I missed? Or maybe some barcades that are worth mentioning? Please let me know, any help is highly appreciated.

Alright, time for a quick update and request for help. Currently the map has 350+ locations however I only have 6 in Canada. It seems that in the east of Canada there are no (b)arcades on the map yet. If anyone knows of any (b)arcades in that area please feel free to let me know. Thanks!
