For the last 30 years Amusement Associates has been running the Iowa video game, pinball, jukebox and arcade auction.  Industry members, hobbyists, and families have been coming to these events in Des Moines, Urbandale, Newton and Grimes usually twice a year to see games, play with them and take many of them home.  We have people travelling from across the midwest and would love to have you there.

If you lived in the era of video arcades, Fun Factory, Chuck E Cheese (when they had games there, not just ballpits and ticket games).  All arcade-style games, pinballs, jukeboxes, pool tables, cranes, changers, parts, and redemption games.
