STRIDE begins Save The Arcades 2

Shaggy November 27, 2009 4

STRIDE gum is at it again and their Save The Arcades campaign has just entered it’s second phase. This time they are giving players out there a chance to nominate the arcade of their choice to be saved, as along as it follows four certain guidelines, which are:

Participants should submit their nomination in 500 characters or less (including spaces and punctuation) and write about an arcade that meets the following qualifications: Arcade should (1) have classic games, (2) be a business that operates in the 50 United States and District of Columbia, (3) have at least 15 arcade games on site, (4) be locally owned and operated and (5) have an affinity for classic games.

The period for nomination runs from now (well, it started on the 17th but I was in Vegas and didn’t hear about it) until January 7th, 2010. You have to sign up on the Stride gum website but it’s free and if you participated in the previous Save The Arcades promotion you should already have that account.  So go and nominate your favorite arcade and help them out!

    I get a message saying “Sorry, you are not eligible to participate”. Anyone else have this problem?

    I hope they have a better game then “zapataur” on save the arcades 2. The pacing was too slow on that game. I know there are better flash games to use.

      I hope they don’t use a flash player game at all. It makes it too easy to cheat.

    A few of us from UFO tried to nominate as well, and we all got the same message.

    And I dearly hope that they don’t use Zapataur. Come up with a sequel that actually had some thought put into it.

    wtf is a “classic” game?

    i guess that rules out Arcade Infinity, right?
