  1. Thank you for this I couldn't find much info in this machine. I've had one In My garage for along time and I plugged it in and it works.

  2. When I was a teenager I saw this exact Pac-Man cocktail table arcade game at a DQ Dairy Queen fast food restaurant along with a Galaga cocktail table and I played this one a lot. I miss the good times of that it brings back good memories.

  3. I was a master player at this I so miss it

  4. Very entertaining and fun to watch. Thanks for posting this.

  5. Two questions….
    Did those lights come with the original table ?

  6. I have one of these. When I was a kid, my dad bought from a friend after his restaurant closed down back in the early to mid-1980's. I did have to replace the original CRT with a LCD flat screen recently. I am going to make a new bezel out of black poster board to cover up the silver brackets and screen edges. Unfortunately, the paint under the glass is pretty deteriorated. I am torn between getting a new underlay or keeping it original. If I get the underlay I would have to scrape all of that original paint job off of the glass.

  7. Love this table! Trying to purchase for Christmas and having trouble finding a place to buy.
    Can you please help with recommendations? I live in Germany so International shipping is preferred. However, I may be able to ship to someone in the States and have them mail to us. Great content! Thx!

  8. If you like Pac-Man, try RandomPac. It has been made as faithful as possible to the original arcade version except that the mazes are created randomly (they are different every time) and it contains bonus levels. Download it from

  9. Why do they say that Pac Man started in 1982? I played Pac Man on Gran Canaria in 1981 as a table game. Not arcade game. You could put your drink on the side and sit in a chair and play.

  10. My grandpa had one of these….man I wish I still had it.

  11. I have this but my mom wants me to sell it 🙁

  12. Does that one have the rom which speeds up the game I bought a MS pacman used seems to be faster then normal. What I read is there is a rom called the 6F can buy a modified version it will make it run faster.

  13. Thanks for sharing, takes me back. Even seeing the Pac Man imagery/logo sends a shudder down my spine. Cheers!

  14. How much would one of these in great condition go for?

  15. In 1985 my father had one of these in this house for a while and I had Pac-Man Fever
