Richard Goddard wrote a very detailed piece for Issue 78 on Clive Baker's new(ish) penny arcade at Milestones, Basingstoke. Richard supplied me with a good selection of pictures, many of which I was unable to publish in the magazine due to lack of space. Here are some of them - more to follow:

..........and here are some more piccies, most of which were not published in the magazine. I'm afraid I still haven't found the time to visit Milestones, but do hope to do so in near future. If you get the chance, do try to visit - I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

More to the point, why? It's actually someone bending over (doing what, I've no idea).

.......also in Issue 78, someone has finally written something about my arcade!
Martin Larcombe wrote a detailed account of his visit back in April, when he ventured down to the sea front after visiting the Brighton jukebox show. There were just 3 pictures published in the magazine, but Martin has recently emailed some more he took on the day.
So here they are.......

Well, well seems pretty obvious to me that that a modern game slipped in there...... the infamous Japanese "Boong-ga Boong-ga". Read the link about it as one of the strangest games ever, best part is the trophy it vends for especially great playing!?!? http://www.screwattack.com/news/strange ... a-boong-ga
