Play Stride’s “Save The Arcades” Game and Help Us Win $25,000!

Update 6/17: YOU DID IT! Ground Kontrol has won Save the Arcades 2 — click here for more details!

Update 6/2: Less than 2 weeks remain to play Cowbots 2010 for Ground Kontrol! Stride Gum has begun posting weekly score updates on their Facebook page, and Ground Kontrol has remained at #1 thanks to YOUR help! Whether you earn 100 points or 100,000 points a game, every game helps. Please keep playing for Ground Kontrol through 9:00am PST/12:00pm EST on Tuesday, June 15th!

Ground Kontrol is a finalist in Stride Gum’s Save The Arcades contest! The grand prize is $25,000 and we need YOUR help to win it. Here’s how:

  1. Surf on over to the Stride Save The Arcades website and register an account. You can’t donate your points without one!
  2. Play COWBOTS 2010.
  3. Donate your final score to “Ground Kontrol Classic Arcade.”
  4. Repeat as often as you like, and tell your friends! (Remember to sign in before each gaming session.)

The arcade that receives the most points by June 15th will win the prize.

Which begs the question – what would Ground Kontrol do with the prize money if we won?  As luck would have it, we’ve been working on plans to expand our second floor so we can feature more of the classic games you love.  But…we’ve had a hard time trying to figure out how to pay for it.  If we come out on top, you can bet we’ll put every last dollar to work bringing you more games and more fun. So, put those well-honed arcade skills to work and show your love for the best arcade in the Pacific Northwest! Thanks to all of our customers and fans in Portland and beyond for your support!
