Like dress shirts and elevators, video games are easy to use and provide hours of carefree fun with buttons. Press start with today's Groupon: for $5, you get admission for two and two $3 bags of nickels at Nickel City (a $10 value). If you redeem your Groupon Monday–Friday, you'll also receive 50 additional tickets for each half of your duo.

Nickel City houses more than 120 family-friendly video games, including more than 10 free-play games and vintage classics that all operate on the most Jeffersonian of coins—the nickel. Admission grants the holder all-day access to nickel-fueled excitement, allowing patrons to come and go at their leisure. With two $3 bags of nickels (a total of 120 nickels), customers can flit from game to game like gargantuan Tinkerbells. Defend the world against a synchronized attack from extraterrestrial beings in Aliens, or strap in to a racing game to take in speed-blurred views of the pixilated wildflowers along the track. Interactive dance and music games offer artistic satisfaction, and Street Fighter III ushers in a new wave of pavement-borne bullies. After a day of gaming, the prize counter offers untold riches to players of any age who earn enough tickets to barter for their booty.

What do you do when you have a full hour to waste before the 9:45 p.m. showing of "The Adjustment Bureau?" You hang out at Nickel City of course!

Nickel City is a fun little arcade. If you like playing video games or earning tickets for silly little prizes, then you'll have a good time here.
