Arcade games have long been famous for their high scores, where there was local infamy in having the high score for a popular game. Obviously, arcades are not popular anymore, but people still boast about having the high score on today’s games. Since many communities have gaming stations in their community clubhouse, this is a great way to inspire some good-natured competition! Have a place where you publish the current high scores on popular games, both within the clubhouse and online. If someone breaks a high score, take a picture of them next to the TV showing it off!
As a side note, retro games are IN! Tons of communities have a Wii station or Xbox, but giving your clubhouse a retro feel with old-school arcade games would be a hit! In fact, there are at least two places in our city that have a whole old-school arcade which is always packed!
