Different but the same

July 15th, 2008 · 2 Comments

After the final dissapointment  at “Fun & Games” in Framingham, we decided to check out the Fun & Games at Village Green in Natick.

Sadly, this was just as dissapointing.  They have this “game garage” arcade:

The garage features 5 or 6 games I don’t play or I’ve never heard of like “EggVenture”

and even the one classic game, a re-furbed Pac-Man, has a weird feel to it, you can’t see but the white letters are actually japanese (I think)

So in that way, this Fun & Games is a disappointment.
Although we’re not huge mini-golf people but we ended up playing it since we were there and found it to be a pretty decent course.

It has a colonial theme and is kept up well.
We’d like to know what this guy is doing though:

Writing about all this remnids me:  Wasn’t Good Time Emporium supposed to move into the old Sam’s Club on Speen St.?

    Fun And Games (don’t acronymize it) was the place to be back in the early 80’s during the Golden Era of arcades, but now it’s just laser tag & rhythmless white boy dance with the occasional button masher. You need to spend big bucks to go to Good Times or Dave & Busters and even they’re not what they used to be.

    As far as I know the Natick planners still want a hotel at the old Sam’s Club, though we have several places nearby that never fill up. Personally I think Good Times is a better entertainment fit for the Natick Collection as the cinemas are long gone. You can even play Frogger as you cross Speen Street. 🙂

    I thought the decor was pretty clever and interesting (note the Indian in the middle of the course : man or woman?). But, one big oddity I noted on my second game was the roaring grizzly bear in front of the benches. In colonial New England (and presently)there were no such thing as Grizzlies; only black bears….
