Video games improve eye-hand coordination by requiring fast finger-work and switching into "stop hitting yourself" mode at random. Improve your reflexes with today's Groupon: for $10, you get admission for two, 120 nickels, two slices of pizza with up to two toppings, and two small drinks at Nickel City in Northbrook (up to a $21.50 value).

At Nickel City, a pantheon of games stands ready to dispense diversion for the paltry price of one—or several—nickels. Admission (a $2/person value) grants access to more than 100 nickel-operated games, so customers can live out their car-racing, dance-battling, and foie-gras-fighting dreams. Defeat concentric circles during a game of skee-ball, or feel the thrill of stationary racecar driving to win rows of tickets, redeemable for prizes or high-fives. Thirty free-play video games, including Pac-Man, Tetris, and Mortal Kombat, keep thumbs flexible. Between battles, the famished fortify themselves with two pizza slices with up to two toppings (a $4.50 value each) and two small soft drinks (a $1.25 value each) before reentering the fray.

Nickel City offers its own deals at certain times of the week; plan ahead to make sure you're redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time.

Nickel City

Nickel City Games boasts a miniature metropolis of more than 100 video arcade games and redemption games, which require not tokens or quarters but mere nickels to play. Players compete for prize bounties at redemption games such as skee-ball and basketball, which dispense tickets to be exchanged for hundreds of family-friendly baubles. Elsewhere, visitors play classic arcade games such as Pac-Man, Contra, and Street Fighter free of charge. Staffers at an expansive snack bar serve hearty pizzas and fries, and a customizable party room hosts themed celebrations for children and round-table negotiations between rival Mortal Kombat characters.

Kids always have a good time, hardest part is deciding which prizes to take home! Games are good, prizes expensive, it's exactly what you'd expect. Good for a raining or otherwise boring day!
