Uncle T sold me the steering wheel from Mom's arcade. Still need to figure out a good use for it!


That's a museum piece to people in this hobby.  Put in on a plinth below a framed picture of Mom's Arcade.

I can see it now...

How about:

Winner's Circle (I know it's square, but you look encircled with fun)
Belly of the Beast (basement)
Mash 1UP


What's your favorite game in there?

That's pretty good. I own 5 centuri cabs. There are more good entries than I thought there would be.

Shipping Ian? If you win bring your family down. Have a beer or 3.

I just leave them up. At one of my parties the kids asked me to turn them on. I said it's not Christmas time. They didn't care. They love them so they go on at every party. I plan to replace them with RGB LEDs eventually.

I've upgraded to those led moving spotlights you're supposed to shine on the side of your house. They get really cheap after holidays. I just put one on top of a machine and point it at the ceiling. Kids love that ---steaming pile of meadow muffin---.

I used your suggestion and did the same thing. I mounted it to the back of my machine - looks cool.

Alpha Centuri is the winner. I really liked Time Tunnel. My daughter liked Mom's Arcade, but she would have tweaked it to Mom's Place. My son just isn't ready for that. He liked the Wooden Nickel. We all agreed on Alpha Centuri. It sounds very '80s. It fits in with all of the Centuri cabinets I own.
Congratulations Vigo. PM me when you decide what you want on your plaque.
I plan on ordering custom tokens to go along with the sign. I can throw a couple tokens in the mail to any participants that want them.

Okay. We have a winner. Now it is time to design the actual sign. It will be CNC cut and hand painted. I will also need a logo version that is token friendly.

I am going to need a lot of help with this. So buckle up. It's going to be a bumpy ride.



This is my first rough idea. I just printed out a Centuri logo and roughed out the Alpha part with a red pen. I figured there would be a way to add a space ship or something to the logo to give it more life. It needs a good color scheme and a background.

Feel free to post ideas here. If this first idea sucks just tell me.

Yes Jennifer. You missed the point entirely as usual. I am looking for sign design ideas right now.

I never use Photoshop for creating CNC friendly vector files.

Put out your cigarette, open the curtains, and try to keep up.
