Gun Fight Arcade Game #222

Monday, May 29th, 2017

I picked up a pair of video games off eBay because a good friend and fellow collector was looking for an Omega Race, the price was good, and it was pretty close to me. The seller also had a Gun Fight arcade game and I figured if I had to drive to pick up the Omega Race, another game would make the trip more interesting. I figured both games wouldn’t be hanging around my place for long, the OR would go to my friend and the Gun Fight I would document and flip to cover my gas and trailer costs, hopefully. The old black and whites don’t bring big bucks, but they are fun.

Omega Race and Gun Fight

Won the games on eBay and was able to grab them and drag them back to the old house in Palos Park, IL. Both cabinets were in OK shape, but would certainly need some TLC to bring them back to life. I didn’t do much with the Omega Race as it was going away, but I needed to clean up the gun fight for the resell. I love these old cabs as they highlight the transition from the highly stylized EM cabinets, to the “modern” cabinets of the mid to late 80’s. The gun fight keeps some of the stylized look, along with some funky stenciled side art in the EM style. Midway (Bally) would eventually switch to screened decals, but the old black and white games still had that classic EM feel. Insert coin to continue…
