Bidders showed up at Wilson’s Restaurant with hopes of hitting the jackpot Friday. The Wilmington landmark closed almost a year ago, but Friday an auctioneer soled off arcade games and pinball machines one by one.

Most of the bidders owned other family fun establishments along the coast, but some bidders were hoping to bring the fan fare home.

“It’s my daughter’s birthday this weekend so maybe I’ll get her something to tool around with,” said bidder Joel Teribury “I’m looking at the Ms. Pac-man. I lost the Centipede game, it was just too rich for my blood, but hopefully I’ll get a chance at the second Ms. Pac-man coming around here.”

Some games at the auction sold for as little as $200, with others going for about $10,000.
