Gauntlet 2

Gauntlet 2

Phoenix Nest Classic Video Arcade has removed Gauntlet, and replaced it with a fully restored Gauntlet 2.  This represents a little bit of coming full circle for us, because long ago in the history or the arcade, when we still owned Docking Bay 93, a really nice arcade and pinball collector (who, sadly, we lost touch with over the years) asked if we wanted to put his Gauntlet 2 in the arcade.  We split the coin bucket with him every month, and it got played a lot.  We have always wanted to add it back to the arcade, and a buy from a Seattle operator (I’ll post a link to his website when I find it again, he sells games and does arcade rentals) of two Gauntlet-style cabinets, one with most of the artwork in good shape, was what we needed to make tracking down the board worth it (got the board from www.eldoradogames.com).

As for the other Gauntlet cabinet?  It is becoming a Captain America and the Avengers.  I can’t give an eta on when it will be done.  My garage has been converted into a workshop, and I had hoped to have several projects done weeks ago, but there were some minor delays, and now the moisture seal on the floor refuses to dry (although the company that makes the sealant was very helpful over the phone), which makes the floor very slippery.  I hope to be able to post updates very soon, but for once it isn’t me procrastinating!
