Thursday, March 30, 2006, 11:36 AM - Video Games For SaleA few months back some new mini-arcade style games were released. These were develeoped like the old style designs of coleco mini-arcades. You can find them at many places on the web for about $25 each. Spencer Gifts has them all. Frogger, Space Invaders, and The Family Guy Pinball. Very cool! These are color LCD instead of VFD (vacuum flourescent display) screens. All the repros now are LCD, and if someone makes a reproduction in VFD I'll be in tears...
