Cabaret Mini Arcade List

 

 

List compiled by Scott Caldwell and Todd Tuckey

7-31-06 - Revision 3
--------------------

Legend:
  * - Shows a dedicated cabinet I still need good pics of.
  + - Shows a dedicated cabinet newly made since year 2000.
  # - Shows a dedicated cabinet Todd @ TNT still needs to
      complete his collection of all mini/cabarets.

CLARIFICATIONS
==============
- Atari normally called their smaller cabinets "cabarets".  They
   also made games in smaller cabinets for the European market
   known as a "euro", which is larger than a cabaret, but smaller
   than an upright.
- Midway and most of the rest of the industry called them "minis"
- Sega/Gremlin sold two small styles of cabinets, one known as
   "trimlines" and "super minis".  The trimlines were a smaller
   version of a typical mini, while the super minis were really
   short, so they were almost cocktails.

Current list stands at 112 and includes new mini games made
since year 2000, the same game released by different
manufactures in different mini cabinets (Crazy Climber) and
some trivia/poker style games/cabinets.
