I have a Mini-Arcade with cash prize tournaments in Frank & Son, a warehouse collectible show. (hello people who recognize me). A lot of the of the people there are not playing my arcade, because:
1. I Suck
2. I'm not good
3. I won't win
4. Nah... do you have WoW, Wii, and anything else that's not an Arcade game?
I have a few regulars who just use my arcade to practice, which is fine, because that's one of the purposes of my Mini-Arcade. I have all the current fighting games, but everyone stays away from titles that don't have Street or Marvel in the titles.
I have Cash Prize Tournaments for the first to come customers, I've yet to fill up my arcade to actually have a solid tournament.
So, what am I doing wrong? I am actually showing them $20 and $50 bills, showing them they can win it, and they run away from my Arcade.
It's only a one time admission for unlimited play. I rephrase, One price to play all day.
WHY WON'T THEY PLAY!!?
Stop being a weenie and play
