History
Could belong to an amusement park in Houston, TX that closed in the 1990's.1 This token could also belong to a chain of family centers, one of which was located in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Since I am unsure I am leaving this token in the Lost & Found, for now.
Do you have any information about this Token. Please Contact us.

Update 11/14/2016: Thanks to Gary Patino, who sent me some information about the Games People play in Houston Tx. The token can be seen here. The Houston Token is completely different than the one posted. Also I was able to find a Ft. Lauderdale, FL token, here. It is also different. We may be looking for a third location. The search continues!

Update 01/12/2017: Thanks to William Cassaday for tipping me off to another Games People Play in Clackamas OR. While researching the location at Clackamas I ran across another location that could have been at 3453 Silverton Rd NE, Salem, OR 9730. I then ran across this page List of All Known Arcades and Amusement Operators as of January 1, 1991" that has 21 entries for Games People Play that were open in 1991.
