The TonTon Club - Amsterdam

During a recent stay in Amsterdam I checked out The TonTon Club, a new arcade located in the heart of the Red Light District, behind the Old Church. 

I went along on a Sunday afternoon, and it was nice to see the venue busy and people enjoying the games. 

Credit tokens can be bought at the counter, although some of the games are on free play, including Cruise ’n USA, Virtua Racing and Daytona USA.  I was especially pleased to see Virtua Racing, although it’s just as unforgiving as I remember!

It’s a nice venue to chill, play some games and enjoy a couple of beers!

Capcom vs. SNK

X-Men vs. Street Fighter – Capcom CP System II
I finally got hold of a nice clean XVS Euro board.  I’ve been on the lookout for one for ages.

Samurai Shodown V Special – Neo Geo MVS
I’ve bid on a few kits on Yahoo Japan over the last couple of months, but the auction has always ended way over my max bid.  I’m really happy to score a SSVS cart for a decent price.  I got the arts separately from YHJ.
