Random poll or?....

I'd say $15 to $20 at Acme because I tend to play a lot of DM and ITG which eat up money. At Pink Gorilla it tends to be less because I play shmups and pinball where I can usually play for something like 25 minutes on 50 cents.

Random poll to increase activity. Smiley I'll be going through different ones.

(Although if there is anything useful from the polls, I will try to talk to arcades about sponsoring an ad on the site or try to get special deals, promotions for members.)  Stuff you're likely to benefit from.

I just want to make a note here: The amount of money I spend isn't limited by the amount of money I have to spend (I would gladly re-budget to play more games) but rather the amount of energy I have to expend. I can rarely ever play more than 8-10 sets of ITG + Drummania combined without feeling so sick that I need someone to carry me out of there. If I had more energy, I'd play more games for sure.

I generally spend about 3-5 when I go to an arcade.  It kind of depends on the games.  If theres Pop'n Music, I can usually blow upto 10 bucks.

I'd really like it if everyone would say how much they spend at a specific arcade. I'd also appreciate it if you would note how often a month you visit a specific arcade.

As many of you know, I'm thinking about putting the ITG2 into Evergreen, but I'm wondering if it would even be worth my time and money to move it.

Seattle Waterfront: roughly $5-$10 about two to three times a week

Acme: $5 on an average day ($10+ if I'm on fire on ITG) I used to go once a week, but I've been going to the waterfront more to buff up my PIU skills.

Power Play: Since there's a point card and I always fill it prior to going there, maybe about 600-1000 pts. PIU Pro 2 is the only thing I ever play there, so yeah... Grin Grin I haven't been going recently though, and if I do, maybe twice or three times a month.

Ah, I'm the only one in the $5-8 range thus far =x

Tried to average out Powerplay/Acme/Evergreen/Gameworks combined.

For me I just play till I have to go do something else. But before that happens I easily drop five to ten each time I play at evergreen. I usually get there on my days off to play and play after I get done bowling

I usually do around $3-5, gotta love the deal you get on tokens at Evergreen.

It all depends on the arcade and pricing.  I'd hit $8-10 every time I go to Big Al's if it weren't for the fact I go on Wednesdays for their half price deal.
Ground Kontrol it varies from $1-$5 depending on if the machines I want to play are actually working that day.  I usually spend more at the bar than in the arcade on Rock Band Tuesdays.
If it's a Game Works, Dave & Busters, etc I tend to go through at least $10 per visit due to their higher prices.

At my local arcades I spend about $6 a day, as few days as possible. I get 3 games of whatever I play (any music game), or on thursdays I get a few hours out of it as ITG is half price and also friends come and play. Solo though, my games tend to not take nearly as much time so the money dries up fast.
Thankfully, I'm not at uni for a while now, save for a few exams, so my wallet should expand back to something that isn't completely and utterly broke.... assuming I can find extra work in the holidays.

Since Drummania at ACME is such a great deal and that's about all I play, $3-5 a trip, 2-3 times a week.

How is this post still up? So I have something like 6600 songs played on my card over the last almost 2 years. Divide that by 3 songs per set and you get $2200 spent at Acme, not including sets where my card didnt work and sets played on DDR Wink Still working on that money tree... Do I win anything yet? Bill? Maybe a pizza party or something at Acme when I get to $2500/7500 songs? hehe

Hey Allan, yes, pizza party!
