Introduction to ‘Frank’s Ranks’-the Quadfecta of Spreadsheets

redemption tickets

Here’s the Ticket!

The Top 79 Redemption, Merchandiser, Video, & Novelty Test Games Spreadsheet and Combined List (that is how many games were in Test Location #1 in June) is put together from actual collections from games owned and operated by Alpha-Omega Amusements at FOUR of our contracted revenue-share centers in different areas of the U.S. The data is exactly as it is recorded by our staff and the FEC’s, so I know that the data is correct and is not changed in any way.

The purpose of the Lists is for you to see where your current games place or rank, divide the game revenues so they ratio to your game revenues, and check out where other games that you do not have might rank in your facility. It is also easy to pick out trends and stay on top of your ‘game’.

 

 

Update:  Just as TRR-FEC is going to be uploaded the WE 6-23-17 collection reports came in (Average Week).  Take a quick look at the new standouts and a new record breaker:

  • ICE Man [email protected]%
  • Jewel Mine $  [email protected]%
  • Bean Bag Toss $1,[email protected]%
  • Let’s Bounce $1,[email protected]%
  • Jersey Wheels $  [email protected]%
  • Mighty Mini  $1,[email protected]%  – Rank #4 for Merchandisers (Believe this to be a new record for the Mighty Mini Crane!!!)

Top 79 Ranked Revenue Generating Games Combined List & Test Games Spreadsheet Covering 4 Test Locations June 2017

Hottest New Games

The AEM/Alpha/AlphaBET Teams Gives a Thumbs Up to the following New Test Games and Old Work Horses (Must Have’s) based on their revenues during the months of May/June 2017- It is pretty difficult for a new game to break into the Top 10 as this ‘Elite’ group has remained pretty much the same over the past 2 years, but 2017 has shown four major exceptions.  See if you can pick them out:

  • Wizard of Oz 6 Pl takes back it’s #1 Ranking as it proudly states, ‘I’m back!’
  • DC Super Heroes has dropped one notch to the #3 Ranking for the past 2 months and still looks to be the leading contender for ‘Game of the Year’.
  • Space Invader Frenzy Ranked #6 for June and stays in the Top 10 since it arrived just after IAAPA 2016.
  • Ticket Time Crane continues to stay in the Top 5 and Ranked #4 for June.
  • ICE Man’s first complete week gets an overall #9 Ranking.
  • SpongeBob Pineapple Arcade gets a #16 Ranking at Test Location #1 and remember it is only a 2 Player that has to run against some much larger and taller workhorses.
  • Bean Bag Toss gets #13 Ranking and continues to generate high revenues.
  • Black Hole Merchandiser gets #6 Merchandiser Ranking and #21 Ranking Combined.

 

TRR_BenchmarkGames_2014

 

Hint:  The answers are DC Super Heroes, SpongeBob, Space Invader Frenzy, and Bean Bag Toss.  These are games you should not miss out on.

Advice:  If you are considering buying a new game and you have waited 6 months to make a decision and you do not have a Sponge Bob, you should label yourself as a ‘Primo Procrastinator’.  If you are waiting to get one at a low ‘used’ price, you may have to wait another 6 months as I do not see any sane person trading one in anytime soon.
