If you’re like me, you like the variety of broken arcade games that only Jillian’s can provide, you’re in luck. Turns out there is an auction going down in Louisville Kentucky. Mozy on down, before one of the Adkins brothers lifts a leg and marks the building ๐Ÿ˜‰

Got an email today from Bid Assets that they are auctioning off a Jillian’s warehouse of coin operated equipment, fixtures and memorabilia on Oct. 18th (close of 6pm) in Louisville Kentucky. If you are interested in which modern games are going to be in the auction, here is a scrape of their listings page.

Not my type of games, but at opening bids of $5.00 for this stuff, it might make for some good deals, especially if you are auction starved in Kentucky. The Star Wars Trilogy and some of the Dynamo cabinets (for the monitors) caught my eye if they can be had for cheap.

There is a preview the day before, but everything is online, so don’t show up to Lytle Street unless you plan to do some people watchin’, beer in hand.

For me, its just deeply satisfying to see that these broken down games will be released back out into the wild. One watersoaked pinball machine, ahht ahht ahht ahht.

Thanks for the heads up on this auction. I’ll have to get on Bid Assets mailing list, as I had no idea this was happening so close to home.

We are auction-starved in Louisville, so the turnout for this might be good. They aren’t my type of games either, but you are right that it is good to see the games get back into public hands rather than sit for years or be demolished.

The Louisville Jillian’s location that these (likely) came from shut down at least six or seven years ago, so some of these games – if not all – have likely been on ice for quite some time.
