Arcade1Up suggests adding some arcade fun to your Super Bowl party

I can't argue their logic since video games go perfectly with everything!
Are you really all set for your Super bowl party?
So you've got burgers, hot dogs, tacos, pizzas and beer. You think you're ready for Super Bowl LIII, but Arcade1Up begs to differ!

Arcade games make all gatherings better! I got an email from the Arcade1Up folks suggesting a run to WalMart to pick up a few game cabs for the party. I can't fault their logic and the prices have dropped. Instead of that 80" TV you had your eye on for the big game, give your guests the gift of Asteroids, Defender, and Tempest!

Add arcade games to your Super Bowl party From Arcade1Up's email blast:
If you are down for a half-time arcade session, do your homework before that trip to WalMart. These cabinets are pretty cool, but they are 3/4 size and aren't as robust (nor as durable) as the ones we played in the 80's.

As you gear up for the big game, don't forget that a good halftime party can make or break your night. We know the food will be flowing and the drinks will be chilled but those commercial breaks and halftime shows will leave your guests twiddling their thumbs.

Instead of being bored, put those thumbs to good use and start a healthy challenge amongst friends. Get creative and even craft your own teams and dual it out just like the athletes!

Head to a Walmart near you and take your Super Bowl party to the next level ;)
