Arcade Raid – The Duke of Lancaster Ship

Postby cait001 » Mon May 09, 2016 9:22 am

Who's ready for an excellent arcade rescue story?

I couldn’t believe all these games had been here and then one day in 1983 the ship was shut not to be opened again due to legal issues. These games saw year after year of summers and winters through the port holes, the sun rising, the sun setting, FOR THIRTY YEARS. They were just sitting there, unsure of their fate, wondering if they would be rescued, wondering if they would ever be played again. ... ster-ship/
