Here’s a list of all the games added so far for this year:
A few notes:
– Some games are extra popular. If you’re photographing a game and someone is behind you wanting to play, give them some room and come shoot it later.
– Careful with the flash photography, the light will bounce off of game glass and ruin your image.
– Be REALLY careful of mono/tripods when they lower the lights. If you trip someone, you’ll be escorted out.
– These are all privately owned, personal pinball and video games, so be careful with hitting them or causing damage. These games are people’s pride and joy!
– Bring a circular polarizer for your lenses, it helps cut the reflection from the game glass.
– Music is loud and lights go dim in the evening. For a quieter day, go early in the day on Saturday.
