I wasn't able to make it Magfest this year, so this is great news! I enjoy me some Jubeat despite being really terrible at every rhythm game ever made.

This is so cool!
Not sure I know what any of them do aside from DanceDanceRevolution but I want to give them a shot! :3

The arcades were amazing! My only gripe is that they were so popular that it took forever to get a try on some of them. Jubeat, for example, took an hour of lining up to get a play for most of the con.

Is it possible to get ahold of more cabinets?

Highly doubt it; the cabs are not easy to get. You also probably won't find more cabinets or shorter lines at other cons.

Actually we have nearly 4x the number of cabinets available, but main issues becomes space

I gladly stand corrected! I assumed all of the cabs were split between Sakuracon and AB.

Really hope you guys are back for 2017. I had a blast in the game room. Only other place I get a chance to play these games is in Taunton.

Oh man if you guys were the ones that brought Super Table Flip with you, I would LOVE to see it again.

I don't expect to but that game was more fun than I expected and it was utterly hilarious. XD
