    There’s something about having a huge wad of “physical” tickets that makes it more rewarding/satisfying than having them just loaded onto a card. At least with the card it’s more discreet though.

    Fun fact: The roots of the word arcade go back to the Latin word “arcus,” which means arc or bow. So arcades came to be known as “arcades” because of the way the entrances to the buildings were built with arches as doors.

    I used to manage an arcade/bowling alley… I can guarantee you that these tactics would work on workers, as long as you’re not horsing around and making a scene, we will absolutely leave you alone at the games with no questions asked. Hack the games away haha

    I love that Mark has a “home arcade!” His child like curiosity coupled with his brilliance make for some of the best videos on the web.
    Btw, how’s Phat Gus doing? 😊

    Imagine being an Arcade worker and seeing the same guy on the security feed 9 different times in 1 day with slightly different backpacks everytime.
