I have described and reviewed most of the arcades I went to in 1982-1983, but I will encapsulate here.
Trumbull Mall Arcade, Trumbull CT: My "home base" arcade. always had between 25-45 machines depending on the year. Bare bones, not much to look at in there aside from the games, no music.
Spanky's Arcade, Bridgeport, CT: A converted car dealership, this place had between 50-70 machines, between 82-83. Not much to look at here either aside from the machines, no music.
Wizard's Arcade, Bridgeport, CT: About a quarter of a mile down the street from Spanky's, what I remember of this place before it burned down under suspicious circumstances, they had 25-35 machines, and there was art adorning the walls, but no music.
Lafayette Plaza Arcade, Bridgeport, CT: located in a store space, this short-lived arcade was all business. About 20-30 games. no art, no music.
Arnie's Place, Westport, CT: A great arcade, if a bit tough for me to get to. The place had a 70s casino feel to it, with the machines in wooden enclosures (which made it hard to play pinball) and a lot of incandescent lighting, and a rock station playing over the PA.
Connecticut Post Mall Arcade, Milford, CT: A dark place where most of the lighting came from the games themselves.... I *think* there was some music but I could be misremembering. About 30-40 games.
Milford Recreation, Milford CT: The Mecca, as I call it in my podcast. At least 70 games by 1983, prolly closer to 100, art and lighting everywhere, and a rock station in New Haven always playing over the PA.
Gompers, Orange, CT: A place I went to maybe two or three times, this place had at least 35 games, including some machines that Milford Rec down the street did not have.
