Friends and co-creators, Ryan Claytor and Nick Baldridge, recognized a significant lack of published content celebrating the innovative and exciting history of the electro-mechanical era of coin-operated equipment. In 2016, they began conducting interviews and outlining the four volume series.  Nick’s considerable technical proficiency, Ryan’s detailed, clever, full-color illustrations, and the pair’s interest in historical accuracy and research combine to form a visionary offering in the coin-operated amusement sphere.  Much like the games they are describing, Nick Baldridge and Ryan Claytor’s publication is primed to please a wide range of readers.
