Video games are like life: a bewildering maze filled with challenges, where the only way to get ahead is to have your pet dinosaur eat the boss. Take a break from reality with today's Groupon: for $20, you get 114 arcade tokens (a $39.90 value) at Ruckers.
Ruckers' colourful display of arcade cabinets dazzles the senses with fast-paced games, glistening lights, and computerized revelry. With more than a hundred jangling coins at their disposal, visitors of all ages while away afternoons blasting virtual bad guys or discussing the economic strength of the token. Underneath a canopy of hanging toys, visitors try their luck at a carnival of interactive prize games, reaching into oceans of stuffed animals with crane claws or perfecting their timing at a chorus of button-slamming challenges. In addition to mastering joystick manoeuvres and taking aim at video shoot-'em-ups, gamers strap in to drivers' seats and cockpits, show off new moves on digitized dance floors, and deliver rousing speeches on virtual facsimiles of the Roman Senate floor.
Though Ruckers sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
