Charleston Gamerooms Arcade Games and Pinball Sales

1704 Old Towne Road. West Ashley.

We stopped by here on a whim one day and discovered a treasure trove of vintage pinball games. Dealer David Ford’s showroom is like an arcade out of your early-’80s childhood. Galaga, Centipede, Ms. Pac Man, Joust, and Mortal Kombat are all there along with collectible pinballs like The Addams Family, KISS, and South Park — a hilarious take on the irreverent TV show complete with a toilet and Mr. Hanky, who pops out of the tank when you hit the right combination of bumpers and lights. But wait, that’s not all. He’s got a Flintstones kiddie ride, CD jukeboxes, foosball, air hockey, and pretty much any kind of game you could want for your home game room. And if David doesn’t have it, he can find it for you. He’ll even rent games out for parties and events. The best part is that you can stop by anytime and play for free, just don’t make a habit of it and ruin it for the rest of us.
