The name is a little misleading. Many, if not most, of the games cost around $.30 to play, but that still makes it cheaper than a normal arcade. Along the back walls there are also quite a few free games, old classics such as pac-man and Asteroid. Nickel-A-Play has a place for children's birthdays, along with a lot of win ticket games, which you can trade in for prizes. Not a bad way to spend a rainy afternoon! I'd go more often than I do, but my husband doesn't lke arcade games. His loss!
