The new Dual arcade table – Head-to-head gaming
Some of you may have seen this, or even had a play on it last year at Replay in Blackpool. Well, it’s now officially released!
Based around the 60-in-1 arcade board, this baby is our entry-level system in our arcade table range. It is equally as well designed, built and finished as our other arcade tables but uses a dedicated arcade PCB rather than a PC system. So you just plug it in, turn it on and you’re away. Available in Walnut only.

Photo shoot for the forthcoming ‘Dual’
We got a bunch of friends round over the weekend and took a whole load of photos for surface tension‘s forthcoming ‘Dual’ arcade table which will be available in early September. Partying around a coffee table under bright lights is definitely the way to spend a Saturday!
I didn’t get much time to play it myself, but it was hard getting certain people off it! Either that or they loved having their photo taken!
This is the new two-player head-to-head model sporting 60 classic arcade games.

New control panel colours
If you are looking to get your hands on the surface tension Double7 arcade table, you now have a choice of colours to personalise your control panel. Still the same high quality laser-cut, anodised and screen printed aluminium panel, but now available in blue and red, as well as black and silver.
We can also produce custom control panels if you want something different again.

surface tension website update
The website has now been updated to include the new surface tension arcade table. The existing table has taken on the name of Double7 and the new table is called the Arcane giving customers a design preference. The only real difference is the Arcane has a slightly longer control panel which houses a spinner alongside the existing controls. There aren’t any pictures of this on the site yet, but they shouldn’t be too far away.

The new surface tension table
We’ve recently been down at Patrick’s bar in Parkstone, Bournemouth running a photo shoot for the new table. It’s not going to replace the existing system, but offer an alternative for those with different tastes. The website should be updated soon, but in the mean time here’s a few images to keep you going…

Insert coin ’09
Well, it’s taken me a few days to get around to posting about the show. All in all it was a great success. Alan, Grant and their team did a great job in getting all the machines together. On the day (well, the day before) it seemed everything was against them and the show was almost a non-starter. All of the Egrets were stuck at customs and after being released late on the Friday afternoon, half of them reached their destination at about 9 o’clock at night. The rest of them were due in at 6am Saturday! When we arrived at 11pm on Friday to set up, the electrician was setting up the supply for the hall whilst PCBs were installed in the machines. It was an all-nighter for most of the IC’09 team.
