Video Games Going Away Once Again

The city council has reinstated a previously-repealed 1946 ordinance [seventh item] banning from city limits any and all stand-alone arcade devices and games. This measure has been taken in response to a wave of rigged slot machines appearing in the wake of the city council’s late April decision.

The Video Game Museum at Mabel Tripp Gardens had placed several of its vintage games – including Stryder, Centipede and Tron – in a special public play area to celebrate the repeal of the ordinance. The exhibits are expected to be returned to their places behind display glass by 4 pm this afternoon.
