As Achievements have worked on game consoles to incentivize additional play and interest in certain games, we want to do the same thing for arcade titles that don't have such achievements as a part of their software. This gives you an opportunity to not only try out a game you might not normally play but to also challenge yourself and achieve something. Arcade games are made to be difficult and as such it takes practice and skill to become good at them. We are doing this in conjunction with the Galloping Ghost Arcade in Brookfield, IL who started using a system that we have changed slightly to fit in with our own arcade.
So how does it work at The Game Grid? First, an Achievement account will be created on the front desk computer where you need to make a Gamertag (a name that can be used in certain games) as well as your official initials that will be used on each game to verify that it's you.
When you want to attempt an achievement, you must let us know at the front desk so we can verify it. If you manage to be the challenge, we will sign it off on your card as well as on the computer. To avoid cheating, the achievement MUST be signed off on our computer to earn credit. We also will have papers with the achievements listed so you can track it.
Earned achievements earn POINTS. They can be used to purchase certain things, like tickets at a redemption arcade. To receive credit for your points, we will keep track of what is used on your account.
1 hour of PC time: 300 points
Big Buck Safari Shirt: 600 points
Headphones: 7500 points
Video Games: Varies, come in and see
Gift Cards: 1600 points for $15 iTunes card; 1100 points for $10 Zynga cards (Farmville or Mafia Wars)
OTHER: We will be adding other prizes soon at the front desk: toys, plush, video games, etc. Come in to find out what the values are.
