A Mall Video Arcade and Pool Hall

A couple weeks ago, I posted some pictures of the gaming store I built for our club shopping mall game (http://bucksurdu.com/blog/?p=3858).  this past weekend, I spent all day Saturday at my son’s track championships and with the Venture Crew at an all-night relay for life for the American Cancer Society.  Despite that, I did have a little hobby time on Sunday to finish my second store for the mall.  This one is a combined video arcade and pool hall.  I want to build a rack with pool cues and find micro beads small enough to be billiard balls, but otherwise, it is “good enough” for a zombie game.

The video arcade is in the front of the “store,” with the pool hall in the rear.

When I was constructing the video games, they seemed too large for my 28mm figures.  But in the arcade with figures near them, they don’t look too bad.  I think they will make nice cover during the game.  I can also imagine players wanting to push them in front of the door.
