What you see above isn’t the latest UFO sighting although it could almost be mistaken for such – it’s actually a new arcade entertainment facility that recently opened in Oberhausen, Germany called Spiel Station. It’s attached to a major shopping mall and cost €7 million to put together total. In addition to 22 pool tables and 4 internet stations, they have 12 separate rooms with 12 games in each, which is due to German law restricting how many machines you can have on a location per one license. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find out what the games are that they have there but either way it sounds like there is plenty to choose from.

    I never thought they had arcades games in germany because when I went to berlin last year I didn’t come across one arcade game, I guess it’s a matter of where to find them I guess :/
