We are looking to grow the arcade and add the middle building between our main arcade floor and pinball area,

a PC gaming section, increase the streaming capabilities of the arcade and launch a 24 hour streaming channel
called GHOST TV!  We want to improve upon all areas of the arcade and make it a true gaming utopia!  To do this we
need your help.  We are launching a fund raiser, followed by a Kick Starter.  All donations will go to improving
the arcade and making it bigger and better.
