Elevator action and that game where you throw mugs of beer down a bar. The latter was in King Arthurs many years ago.

Multidisciplinary- I only got 46, and I'm an Eagle Scout! It's been a while, but I forgot that there's pretty much a badge for everything.

My favorite arcade game is the original NBA Jam. I was always Shaq and Penny, or Charles Barkley and Kevin Johnson. Mortal Kombat was pretty groundbreaking when it came out, too.

Galaga. They use to also have a football game that you played with a ball that rolled to move the players.

I have a special place in my heart for NARC and I remember going to the mall and playing that game. You walk around and pick up money, bags of cocaine, and the bad guys throw syringes at you, sweet!

Bob and Sunshine,

If you set up an iGoogle account it allows you to customize your page and add different things. PacMan is one of the gadgets it allows you to have. Fun way to pass the downtime :)
