I just finished last week, a retropie bartop arcade cabinet! This unit, instead of PC based, is Raspberry Pi based! And I have to tell you, I am thrilled with Retropie! Those guys have done an amazing job. Anyway, I put this in one of our conference rooms at the office to let our associates use. They're pretty happy!

Thanks! I'm working on a set of videos for the Raspberry Pi / Retropie setup.

OK guys, I think I am going to do another Bartop Arcade. If you could change anything about this one what would it be?

Would you make it smaller? Shorter? Single player?

What exterior colors? Graphics?

Mike, perhaps a Trackball? A bezel might look pretty cool too!
You should raffle one of these off your channel. I buy a few tickets for a chance at that last one.

You're not the first person to suggest raffling one off. I am not sure how the law works on raffles. I'd simply make one to GIVE away, but I am not willing to pay shipping on the thing. Another channel did a similar giveaway and made it clear that the winner had to pay shipping. He called the top 10 winners and all of them declined to pay. I don't want to get in that situation.

I'm all up for ideas though, so shoot!

Mike

In all honesty Mike, I probably wouldn't have a raffle or give away for the exact reasons you highlighted... Say you did and I won, I live in the west of England UK, it would cost an absolute bomb to ship something like that here and it's not like I can pop round to yours to pick it up... Now if you had a sponsor willing to pay for shipping that's a whole different ball game...

How about just the flat pack? Many folks out there do not have a work space and for them the biggest challenge is just cutting the wood out.
It would be easier to ship too. If it were me, I would state US shipping only.
As for the raffle, yeah state laws very on that one.
