Another week is in the books and I'm sure that I sound like a broken record when I say that I was surprised by how much cool arcade and pinball news was out there. Maybe we're getting good at finding stuff like this. It certainly doesn't hurt to have a background in competitive intelligence. From new arcade openings to the Louisville Arcade expo to a new Bally Williams 2.0 and information about Haggis Pinball there's lots to talk about. Enjoy! Have a great weekend and thanks for reading :)
