From the Killer Queen Arcade Facebook page.
It’s one of the world’s largest arcade games.
Killer Queen Arcade has mostly lived at the NYU Game Center in Downtown Brooklyn. Created by local developers, Joshua DeBonis and Nikita Mikros, this unique collaborative game requires two teams of five to play it. And you can see that when people manage to get that many people into room, it turns into an experience comparable to watching live sports.
