Earlier this week, I found an individual on Craigslist in Columbus Ohio who was interested in buying my Atari Food Fight cabinet. This is the second cabinet I have sold to someone in the Ohio area. I sold my Atari Xevious cabinet in February to another individual in Dayton Ohio. This is the cabinet that I got from Tim Hill in MI, who got the Food Fight for free from Robotron (klov forums) in the Detroit area. (more…)
I was waiting for the Jr. Pac-man to arrive, so I took the time to rub off some more of the black paint from the Food Fight. I still don’t know what to do. Do I trash it? Do I try to get all the paint off and then sell it? Do I keep it at that point with all that work?
I can’t seem to sell it, so I will hang onto it for another 2-3 weekends, but soon after I may just throw it out. We’ll see how much paint stripping progress I make, and how much Food Fight artwork I reveal before that point.
The third of four arcade cabinets I got today.

In the past couple of months I have learned some things about the game, like it’s relation to Quantum and the low production numbers. I have always loved the shape of the cab and, of course, the colorful sideart as well. The gameplay is fun to boot, so until I found out the rarity I didn’t really realize the value of a Food Fight.
