Funspot – Best Place Ever!!

(To show you I’m not lying, I just went out and grabbed the above cards and tokens from my car)

Right now on our “Sweet Deals” page, right here…you can get $50 worth of Funspot awesomeness for just $25 bucks while supplies last!! I love this place and do not know where to begin. They have lanes upon lanes of regular bowling AND the local cultural phenomenon of candlepin bowling. Candlepin is really fun and uniquely New England, because it’s more difficult and if you are not from New England you are probably saying “more difficult is not fun” well, please leave.

There is Skee-ball, pinball, indoor mini-golf, great food at The Braggin’ Dragon and I haven’t even scratched the surface of my true obsession with this wonderland in nearby Weirs Beach, NH: Classic Video Games!!

Funspot is the home of the American Classic Arcade Museum and they house just about every coin-op arcade game imaginable. Each summer, nerds flock to this hallowed ground to compete in the International Classic Video Game Tournament. Behold the photo below and rightly tremble in awe.

Yes, that’s my official ICVGT 2013 lanyard and I don’t need to tell you about the effect it has on women (Kate Upton will not leave me alone!).

A couple years ago, I first saw a documentary called “King of Kong- A Fistful of Quarters” as it began playing in regular rotation on ESPN Classic. It’s an excellent movie that focuses on some CVG superstars and the scenes at Funspot, are in my opinion, the very best scenes of the movie. Thanks to the editing of tbirdman1991.. the following clip does a great job highlighting my favorite person in the movie Brian Kuh.

Until I watched that movie, I had never been to Funspot before, after I watched it, I absolutely had to go. A couple friends of mine were almost as obsessed and impressed with “Kong” as I was and now we make an annual pilgrimage to Funspot to test our skills, bother other unsuspecting players with a phony killscreen announcement and sometimes even participate in the Tournament itself.

The above photo is my friend Steve, playing the “possessed” Donkey Kong machine from the movie “King of Kong” and it only costs one token!

If you haven’t been to Funspot, please go! I truly believe there is something there for everyone and you won’t believe the value! And you can chop that price in half right now with our Sweet Deals.
