    Hey all, I'm new here [​IMG].

    I'm going on a holidaysoon to New York, and I'm wondering if anyone knows if there's a TGM arcade in the city there? TGM is my favorite version of tetris and I would love to play it on a real arcade for once.
  2. We don't know of any. In fact the closest one is probably in my living room in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.

    We should make a wiki page outlining the known TGM machines outside Japan. Anyone want to give it a shot? There's Seattle, Austin, and that one place in France too. I guess we could list personal machines too?
  3. There are some personal machines in PA I think. But yeah, very few US arcades have any kind of TGM.
  4. Public machines outside of Japan I've heard of:
    TGM1 at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo student union arcade.
    TGM1 at Arcade UFO (Austin, TX).
    TGM1 at Neo-Arcadia Game Room (Toulouse, France).
    TGM2 (TAP?) at Planet Zero (Houston, TX).
    TGM3 at Acme Bowl (Tukwila, WA)

    It seems Texas is a TGM rich state. :p

    um, the TGM3 machine at acme bowl i think is false. i bowl there many times and i never seen one.
    unless they installed it in the last 2 months, which i doubt they have.

    they have that one game where you play the piano by hitting those color button thingys.
    that game is freaking fun

    i'mma go check it agian tommarow. who gave that info? i didn't know there was any other TGM guy in seattle besides me

    yeah, i fell off the tetris planet for a while. my bowling game needed focus. well, now i can kill 2 birds with one stone.

    stupid fallout 3 and all these cool new games are distracting me waaayyy too much. i need to practice to get my name up there.

    too bad there's soooo many asians out here who will kick my ass in score.

    i hate being like the ONLY white guy who's semi-not-bad at this stuff. cool though, i'mma go check it out

    Kevin's a white boy who's guaranteed to kick your ass at Ti.
  9. I can vouch for that; it happened to me last night. Glad to hear there's someone else from Seattle on here! When do you plan on going?

  11. Hi!

    PM me or AIM me or email me or send smoke signals, some way of communication. I'll try and make it next week when you go. Actually, wait, never mind, you're going to try and make it when I go which in turn is whenever mat_hatter goes. I'll make a new thread for that if need be.

    ahh, good to hear, was hoping we could get drinks in front of the tetris machine.
  13. Well, I might head down there tomorrow as well then around 3. Always up for meeting more people. Not sure if I'll be busy, though.
