We heard reports that operators said the game was broken. That got us all upset. Why don’t we know what’s happening? Well, get out there and check it out, goddammit! It turns out the cash boxes were stuffed. The coin mechanisms couldn’t take any more quarters.




C'mon man, that's a story as old as Pong - literally. Pull the other one.

Nice article mate - a good read ! I see:

Mark Turmell:
“I did a special version of the game (NBA JAM) with the three of them in it (Jordan, Payton etc). I sent that to Payton. I was happy to do it, but it was pretty early in his career. It wasn’t even clear it was the right move.”


Still no word on the elusive Michael Jordan Rom he said he was going to dump on Reddit!

Still waiting....(with baited breath)...LOL !

I had the same reaction, but further down it says they had operators asking for larger cash boxes that would fit the machine. So this could be a real thing.

The article does mention both of those things.
