In addition to the video game room and table top games we have added in a room featuring an authentic Japanese Pachinko machine and Arcade games. You can make a donation to the Able Gamers Foundation and get a cup of balls to try out in the Pachinko Machine. Pachinko parlors are very popular in Japan. Our machine is based on the manga and anime GTO! It includes video!
