In Which I Win The Arcade And Cross An Item Off The Bucket List

Remember when you were a kid and you'd go to the arcade? (and, I guess this is assuming you're roughly the same age as me, but regardless, if you can't rely on your memories, then use your imagination)

And so you'd play games and some of those games would reward you with tickets when you played well (or maybe not so well). And you'd be so excited and you'd go up to the counter to see what you could get for your tickets?

And it was always something disappointing. Like some taffy. Or a plastic ring, or, like, maybe a slinky if you were real lucky. And behind the counter they would have the high value prize, that would take thousands of tickets. And you'd look at them and wonder what it would take to get one of those most awesome prizes.

Well, I have the answer. It takes you being an adult, your two siblings, a bit of disposable income and about a month of Saturdays.

And if you do that, you too, my friends, can finally cash in enough tickets (though it's all digital now) and get yourself one of those super prizes.

Like a PS4, worth 52,000 tickets.




BLAMMO!

Oh man, that's awesome. Was it cheaper than actually buying one?

Yeah, so you paid to play arcade games and got a bonus PS4. Nice.

You have officially won at life. =) I pretty much just spent mine on the candy. But what a fun way to spend Saturday! I hope they had some good pizza there, hehe.

That is so cool. I actually saw a professional arcade player once, and I briefly considered it. Then I reminded my self that there are some more efficient ways to buy an Xbox (but, undoubtedly, no way containing more fun).

Sounds like a really cool way to win an Xbox!
