Philadelphia Has Stupid Gaming Laws.
This sign was spotted on an inactive arcade machine in Philly, PA.
Ir reads:
"Philadelphia law allows only 3 active arcade machines per store without a special license.
This machine will remain off until we get the license, but we will have special occasions where we change the 3 active games.
Keep an eye out for special events involving our arcade games!”
I live about 45 minutes outside of Philly and I’ve never heard of this law in my life. Anyone know what shop this is in?
UpdateZen Albatross let’s us know where this was spotted via Twitter: “Atomic City Comics on South St in Philly. I think it’s a city law.”
