A change in game line up, Infrastructure is Sexy?! Part 4, and Holiday Reminders

First up.
A change in game line up
Mr Do! has been replaced by Namco Classics Vol 2
Namco Classics Vol 2 is a 1997 release that contains the original version and "new" 90s arrangement versions of the following games:
Pac Man
Dig Dug
Rally X

It's a rare and exciting board that adds classics to the limited space here. Also adding new versions that play much like the originals, but which better graphics, sound, and new game play features (arrangement Pac Man and Dig Dug can be played by 2 players at the same time)

~~~~

Infrastructure is Sexy?! Part 4

The series of post about arcade improvements that aren't immediately flashy like new games.

I've upgrade my internet at the arcade and can now offer WiFi.
It is free (intended for customers, of course)
The password will change each month, my naive attempt to limit abuse.

~~~~

Holiday announcements

The arcade will be Closed Sat Dec 25th.

The arcade has modified hours on Fri Dec 31st .
7pm-2am
The arcade will not be open during the day.
New Years is $4 per person, for every person entering the arcade.
(In previous years, New Years was $6/person... but that was confusing)
Wristband system

Heading into 2022:
Everyday will be
$4 per person *Admission*
Each per will need to play to *enter* the arcade.
Once inside, the games will continue to be free play as they are now.

This is a very definitive change and I appreciate your understanding.
The arcade has limited space and this is not expected to change any time soon.
As business volume increases; the number of people who aren't paying customers in the arcade has increased to the point that it negatively affects paying customers.

Basically, if you are coming to the arcade, plan to play games
~~~
Jeremy's Downtown Arcade is located at 206c 12th Ave S, Nampa, ID 83651

It's just $4 per person for unlimited play, any length of time.
Starting Dec 31st, it's $4 admission, unlimited play included.

Infrastructure is sexy?!? Part 3
The series of arcade general improvements.... that are sometimes less than exciting!

Today, I received a pair of video displays that will be used at the entrances for welcoming customers.
Right now, the content is limited, but it'll become must read material before you know it.

~~
This is also a great time to review the previous holiday announcements

The arcade will be closed this coming week from Mon Nov 22 to Thur Nov 25 (Thanksgiving Day), and then reopen on Friday Nov 26 with normal hours.

Also, the arcade will be closed on Christmas Day, Sat Dec 25.

There are modified hours on New Year's Eve: 7pm-2am. The arcade will not be open before 7pm.
~~

There are also other changes coming for the new year.

Starting Dec 31st 2021:
The cost for the arcade will be $4 per person entering the arcade.
Currently, the cost is "for those playing games"

This solves a number of operational problems that are becoming bigger as business increases.
~
The prices of private parties will be:
$140 for 2 hours and $50 each additional hour
Currently is $100 for 2 hours and $35 each additional hour

Basically, I am getting very few days off and need to discourage private parties a bit more.
~
The very old discounted party rate which only now applied to Wed/Thur will be removed completely
~~~~

Specialty events:
This is something I've been wanting to do for awhile now.

Monday November 22nd @ 4pm:
Idaho Riichi Live 5
A gathering of riichi mahjong players. All skill levels welcome.
(This is not an arcade game event. It is tabletop riichi mahjong)
Cost is Free
(Again, for riichi mahjong... not arcade games)
The arcade will be closed to others at this time.

**
Thursday December 2nd @ 5pm:
Rhythm Game Night
A meet and compete featuring arcade rhythm and dance games.
Normal admission.
The arcade will be open for others during this time.

**

More specialty events will take place in the future.

Holiday Announcements

Jeremy's will be closed
No Private Parties available:

Mon November 22-Thur November 25 (Thanksgiving Week)
Reopening with normal hours Fri November 26

Also Closed Sat December 25

New Year's Eve will be modified hours as in the past
7PM-2AM
$4 per person

!!!!!!!!!!Policy Changes Effective Dec 31st, 2021!!!!!!!!

New: Cost is $4 per person for each person entering the arcade. (Including young children, accompanying adults, etc The only exception is Medical Assistant Staff may enter and play games *with* their clients without cost)

Old: Cost is $4 per person playing games.

Why? This is due to a mix of abuse of the current system and current arcade traffic.
During busy times, the number of people "just watching" or just hanging out while their kids play, etc has been high enough to affect arcade space flow.
Children, especially young children, generally understand and follow the rules less than the average customer and consume more arcade resources by violating the rules making the experience less enjoyable for others. Want to bring your kid(s) you pay for them, you pay for you.

*****

New: All parties during normal hours are $4 per person, minimum of 10 people.

Old: Parties on Wed and Thur had been using a discounted $2.50 per person rate.

Why? The arcade has grown enough that offering a discount rate is no longer needed nor reflects the quality of the arcade.

*****

New: Private Party Rate are $140 for 2 Hours and $50 each additional hour.

Old: Private Part Rate are $100 for 2 Hours and $35 each additional hour.

Why? Honestly, I get 2-4 full days off a month currently. By raising rates, I hope to encourage more parties during normal hours to reduce my workload.

*****

General Notice:
The rules are being more strictly enforced recently.
Especially food and drink on games and starting games without playing.
There aren't many rules here, but please make sure that you do learn them and that your children learn them as well.

*****
Picture: Samba de Amigo (1999, Sega). A very rare Maracas based music game. It is still a "project machine", but has reached the point of "game play works well" just needs some monitor adjustment and physical TLC

New games have arrived and the arcade layout has been completely changed.

The new games are starting to come into service.
Of new games:

Beatmania iidx 28: Operational and online
Taiko no Tasujin Green: Operational
Densha de Go!!: Operational
Samba de Amigo: Partially operational, a semi-project machine.

Soon to be operational/online:
DanceRush Stardom
Initial D Zero (Pair)
MaiMai (a 2nd cabinet)

**

It the biggest purchase I've ever made.

Going forward there will be more strict enforcement of the rules; especially for "No food and drink on games." and "Do not start a game if you are not going to play."

Please make sure that you and your children know and follow the rules at all times.
They are simple expectations and generally basic respect.

**

The arcade is a work in progress this week. I am moving nonstop to get everything up and going; if you do stop by in the next day or two, please understand this.

New games will be arriving next week and the arcade is getting a new arrangement.

To make space, some games are being sold or removed.
Flamin Finger has been sold, but the buyer didn't want the Pop figures that I have stocked.
Thus, for this weekend, the odds of winning have been drastically reduced and will be reduced more later today and tomorrow.
I don't want the Pops hanging around after the game is picked up.
Still 25 cents per play, just way better odds. Starting at 1 in 30 odds of winning.

So go ahead and win all the prizes!

**
Why is this game being sold?
Space is becoming more premium as I continue to add newer and better machines.
And
This game exists outside of the freeplay model and I would prefer to move away from that.

Infrastructure is sexy?!? Part 2

This is the continuing series of posts on essential, but far less exciting upgrades here at the arcade.

Recently, I've invested in some new, totally legit trash/recycling cans.
It's a hyper-miracle of trash disposal!

****
It's been sometime since my last post, so some general notes:

It's back to school time. Please plan accordingly for parties.
Party time slots fill up rather fast for Saturdays. Don't expect to be able to book a Saturday party on short notice.

Also, I've previously mentioned new games...... This is still in progress.
Right now, 7 new games are scheduled to arrive and a number of games are scheduled to leave.
Some games may leave before the new games arrive, so there may be a few awkward gaps here and there.
Once new games arrive, it'll be completely packed with games again.
[note: all of the games are newer titles. All of the games leaving either have problems or are lesser played games.]

**
And now the most basic info:

Jeremy's Downtown Arcade is located at 206c 12th Ave S, Nampa, ID 83605

It's just $4/person for unlimited play, all day.

Hours are
Wed/Thur: Noon-11pm
Fri/Sat: Noon-Midnight
Sun: Noon-8pm
Mon/Tues: Closed

It's an arcade designed for the 20s with new and old games for all ages.
