Those were the days.
Scampering around the arcade, bag of crisps in hand, trying to choose which machine would receive that tiny pile of coins you had in your back pocket.
Northern Quarter’s subterranean gaming den NQ64 gives us a way to relive those glory years - immersing us in the nostalgia of lights, pings, clinks and jangles.
Not only that, but its array of cocktails and specialised drinks is a reason to visit the back alley bar even if you're not a fan of gaming.
But we are. Very much so. And things just got a lot more exciting as we've managed to get our hands on the ultimate arcade fan accessory: an NQ64 black card.
In fact, we have five of them, and we are giving them away. All you need to do is enter the competition on our Instagram below for your chance to get your mitts on one of these bad boys.
