Where the heck is Storm Lake? That’s what I said! I have unnecessarily innate understanding of the makeup of western Iowa after our trip out there last week. Never been much for driving, and 10 hours one way on Iowa highway was the same fun equivalence as watching David Lynch’s Lost Highway. We got some cute photos of my son on a Tractor pulled into a gas station…yee haw…but I digress.
Regardless, the hobby certainly does travel. In our early morning walk downtown there was a joint named Honey Kissed Pizza and when I peeked in the windows I could see a couple of machines in back. (more…)
Looking for locations out and about to play arcade games? Great classics like a hideous Battlefrogs and yet another Multicade? Didn’t think so. But if you’re in the Broadripple area and you really need a fix, these two might fill the need. Here’s where they’re at. (more…)
If you live in Greenfield Indiana and are looking to sell some pinball machines or arcade games that are taking up space, you’ve come to the right place. Or maybe you’re trying to track down a certain game, maybe a Donkey Kong for yourself, or a Pac-man for a present for Christmas, I might be able to help you as well.
Buying used Arcade Games in Greenfield
They can be empty cabinets, they can be complete working, or non working arcade games, or even pinball machines, but either way I will purchase and haul away any old coin operated equipment you might have. If you are in the Greenfield area, or any surrounding cities like New Palestine, Morristown, Knightstown, Carthage, Arlington or even Rushville I would be willing to come out and buy any games that you have individually or in bulk.
Who am I?
My name is Jeff, and I run this site. I am really into collecting arcade games hence this website. Weekly I write about the local collecting hobby and my own experiences with fixing and restoring old arcade and pinball games. I am in Indianapolis and own a number of old classic games like Ms. Pac-man, Mr. Do! and Pengo.
Looking for a particular game around Indianapolis?
Certainly drop me a line with my contact form. I know collectors, operators, techs and even on site locations where I might be able to find the machine you are wanting to add to your gameroom / home. Some of the most common games are;
- Donkey Kong
- Star Wars
- Ms. Pac-Man
- Dig Dug
How much do arcade games cost?
Starting a home gameroom out on the east side of Indy? Just built a new home with a great space for some arcade games or pinball machines? Greenfield is certainly the place to do it. But how much do some of these popular classics cost?
First off, don’t believe eBay. There are retail sellers that will try to sell some of these games for $1500-$3000 dollars. If you pay $3000 for anyone of the games listed above, you’ve been ripped off. A game like Dig Dug working, in great condition shouldn’t cost more than $400, and sometimes can be purchased with some scuffs and dings for $200.
Repair an arcade / pinball in Greenfield
If you are out on the east side around Greenfield, or as far away as Rushville, you are in luck. One of the few repair shops around Indianapolis is located in Greenfield – Docpinball. They mostly do pinball sales, and certainly could hook you up if you are looking for a pinball machine like The Addams Family, Twilight Zone, Medievil Madness or Star Trek. Docpinball also builds multigames, so you can play up to 100’s of classic games in one machine. Visit Docpinball.com for more information. You can read here about my service experiences with Docpinball, formerly Wagner Gameworks.
Most of the games they sell will be in the $1,000++ range. Some of those pinballs can cost several thousand, so just be aware.
