Hope this isn't in bad taste, but with all the doom and gloom I thought it's better to laugh than cry. I am also selling some stuff on here and it's making me sad so I wanted to do something more fun haha.

So you are forced to self isolate in your house for 2 weeks with the dreaded 'C Virus' that's currently destroying the world and you are stuck with one game/cab to last you out.

What is it? A Turtles 4 player is no use to you here.

I've used the money I could've spent on bogroll to buy a bumper pack of Imodium and Mario Odyssey.

I havent played the RE2 remake yet so ill start with that and then if iam still isolated ill go with RE3 when its released, seems appropriate although even the c-virus couldnt get me to play through RE6 Again

Breath of the wild to feel like you’re outside and a Donkey Kong cab to use all that spare time to try and get competent at the game.

Im happy to seal myself up with any shmup to grind away to try and get a better score.
I have Nostradamus in the cab at the min so that will do nicely :D

Assuming a multi game board is cheating, I'll opt for Robotron.

Two solid weeks should finally get me past 500k...

Looking for a 2p6b sf2 playing cab.

I'd gladly self isolate with my cabs for two weeks
Never have the time to play them as much as I'd like, so a forced 2 weeks at home should give me the time
Improve score on Dragon's Lair - I used to be able to complete the game at every play, but have lost my tough due to lack of practice (6 yr old daughter wants to see all the animation)
And improving my 17,000 score on Asteroids Deluxe would be good!

Sounds a great idea, but the missus has already asked if we have enough paint in the garage for the bathroom and stated the windows need cleaning, the drive needs jet washing etc etc....
So she’s looking forward to getting some jobs done that I’ve been putting off!!

But I might have other plans......

Since i am located in a country with a goverment with blindfolds on I will keep dropping the kids off at school and go to work until I catch the "C".

But in the best of Worlds falling apart I would like to isolate myself with Vs Ice Climber, but I guess the kids Will choose something on the switch we can play together.... Mario party or worms I suppose..

Work has had most of us working from home for a couple of weeks now. No one is infected (that we know of) they just seem to be being extra paranoid about things. I can’t choose Mario 64 as I beat that last week, I finished off Mario Odyssey earlier this week and I finished Mario World this morning. 

I think either Ocarina of Time or GoldenEye 64 would be my next go-to game.

I'm doing a whole house, so damn true, each side quest requires endless stacks of cash (yes that job that was going to cost £200 really did end up at £650) and at least a four week delay while extra parts are ordered from eBay, even the rooms that are "finished" probably have at least 20 jobs left to do in there (and a ton of cash no doubt).

I'm in lockdown with Star Wars.  It's amazingly immersive.  I'm currently on the level where you pull out all of the boards, connect lots of test gear and swear profusely.  In previous years, I've found all sorts of secrets, including a level where the simulated battle damage was so realistic that it set off my smoke alarm.  Hopefully I won't have to play the HV board level again.  There's a big chance of losing a life on that one.

As some pals are also now not working, we've been having online sessions on Gran Turismo Sport as we've all got wheels and pedals.

As I've only got one working cab (again) at the moment, I may get the CPS2 multi out, or have another look at trying to get groovymame to work.

I had a "games family" pc that came in my MK2
The original Boards were there (working) so just stripped the machine to unhack and sort all the wiring, for a mild restore.

But this "games family"  has been put in my NAC at home during lockdown...
They aren't 1/2 bad.

Games of choice so FAR:   NBA Hangtime
