Ugh, sometimes no matter how much planning you do, you still realize as soon as you finish that you made a wrong turn.  The red light on the display matches the cabinet well and looks cool, but it washes out the token labels and makes them difficult to read.  I think I need to swap the LED strip out for a white one.  Any thoughts on this?  On a test piece, it definitely helps...  :-\



In the mean time, I think I found a way to avoid the need for any kind of keyboard pullout.  I found this little keyboard.  It was intended to be used with a ps3 controller so it is really compact.  Obviously it has some limitations with keys, but it should get me through enough to avoid needing a full keyboard 95% of the time.



I was going to mount it to the top of the cab out of view, but I think it has an even better home tucked under the token shelf.





Grab and go!  :)

Didn't see this one until today, but I must say that the idea with game specific tokens is really great. Even a drunk non-gamer friend can operate this - assuming he/she knows the name of the game  ::)
Well done  :applaud:

I like the white much better. Function over form.
