Just got my first arcade machine!

I bought a Donkey Kong on Craigslist, and I will be refurbishing it. I may install D2K, it looks pretty cool. Hopefully I can get some more soon!

    Great find! Nice to hear that Craigslist is still offering up classic games, too. Some areas seem to have completely gone dry when it comes to arcade ads, or maybe most of the traffic has migrated to Facebook...

    Was it a fairly straight-forward deal and pickup? Also, keep us posted on your restoration efforts. All of my cabs are "player condition" since I don't have the skill set / room to do a top to bottom restore.

    Please install D2k on it or put in a PCB of Jr into it. Otherwise I may burn it if I know where it is. :)

    This was the only game on CL when i found it. It was pretty straightforward picking it up. It is currently in my garage, I will need someone to lift it upstairs.

    nice, with arcade games you cant buy just one. also i agree with any modification to donkey kong since any change can only make it better
