Ce que vous allez faire

You will join us at the arcade where you will take a backstage tour of our workshop and see first hand how we hunt for games in the wild. You will learn how we track down and find games in basements, bars, sheds, and even campers, in any condition, bring them back to life in our workshop, and turn them over to our guests to play again and again. You will have first hand experience and be able to take games that are ready for the trash heap, and get them playable again. Here you will get an inside glimpse into our restoration process, learn from experts that will demonstrate what it takes to get a game working again. See how we eliminated the need for quarters, tokens, and expensive card readers, to streamline the business for the modern era. The owner and tech team at Colonial Soldier Arcade will make you feel very comfortable as you ease into your new role as “tech for a day” while you are on site at the arcade. Learn how to troubleshoot video games on printed circuit boards, that are malfunctioning. Learn the basics of re-capping a 30 year old tube monitor.

Jerold

My name is Jerry Colonna and I am the sole creator of the New Jersey Gamer Con, a video gaming convention that takes place in the Philadelphia area every July. I am also the creator of the Colonial Soldier Arcade, a true classic style arcade with a modern twist; unlimited gameplay for a flat price. I began restoring games early on, for fun, then advanced with technique over the years. During the restorations here, I amassed a collection of classic arcade video games and decided to put them out for the public to play. I want to share with you how we salvage games from beyond the dead, and bring them back to life to be played and enjoyed again. We have become the premiere destination for classic arcade gaming in the market here. I will share how my love of games turned it into a hobby, then into a business.

This portion runs 30-40 minutes. In the back office workshop, you will learn from your guide as repair techniques are shared. This portion runs 90 minutes.
