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

redemption tickets

Here’s the Ticket!

The Top 75 Redemption, Merchandiser, Video, & Novelty Combined List and Test Games Spreadsheets are 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 together, so I know that the data is correct and is not changed in any way.

The purpose of the Lists and Spreadsheets is for you to see where your current games place or rank, divide the game revenues to those of your own games to determine the ratio to your game revenues and check out where other games that you do not have might rank in your facility. Sometimes the rankings show which games you should double up on. It is also easy to pick out trends and stay on top of your ‘game’.

Update as TRR-FEC is uploaded to Earth:

  • Pixel Chase (SEGA) was installed at Location 1 on 2-27-19
  • Treasure Cove 2 Pl (UNIS) was installed at Location 1 on 2-27-19
  • Nerf 2 Pl (Raw Thrills) was installed at Location 1 on 3-6-19
  • Coconut Bash (UNIS) was installed at Location 1 on 3-6-19
  • WWE Superstar Rumble (Andamiro) was installed at Midwest Location on 2-27-19

TRR-FEC will report on these games in the April 2019 Edition

February Observations – Peak Week-Throughput Makes Kings!!!

  • Ticket Ring Jumbo 45” Rank #1 is by far the Top-Earning Game.
  • Wizard of Oz 6 Pl moves up to Rank #2 from #8 in December.
  • Top 10 Games is no surprise. They made up 40% of the total game revenues while only making up 13% of the number of games. These are the Core ‘Workhorses’.
  • There are 3 Merchandisers in the Top 10 Overall – E-Claw 2 Pl, Mega Triple Crane, & Knock It Off Rotary 2 Pl.
  • E-Claw 2 Pl is the #1 Ranked Merchandiser.

Hottest New Games – Thumbs Up

 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 January/February 2019

  • Ticket Ring Jumbo 45” at #1 and a cost of less than $5,000 is a ‘no brainer’.
  • Connect4 Hoops Ranked #2 for the past six months now dropped to Rank #7. Not to worry. My take is that this game will be a Work Horse for years to come!!! Another ‘no-brainer’ if you have the ceiling height. Check out the Mini model in Breaking News.
  • DC Comics Super Heroes 4 Pl moves up two places to Rank #3 and is still a must-have game. If you do not have space or budget for the 4 Pl, there is a 2 Pl so you cannot use space and budget as an excuse for not getting one.
  • Virtual Rabbids 2 Pl remains at Rank #6. Virtual Rabbids is still by far the best video game on the Planet. (See YouTube Video featuring Malcolm Steinberg, Chairman LAI).  Soon we will have 3 new software games.
  • SpongeBob Pineapple Arcade Ranked #9 and it is now running perfectly. This game is still a ‘must have’ – ‘must have’ game.
  • E-Claw 900 2 Pl – Rank #5 overall and the #1 Ranking Merchandiser.

AdviceIf you are considering buying a new game and you have now waited 6 months now to make a decision (and you do not have a lot of space) and you do not have a Ticket Ring Jumbo 45”, you should label yourself as a ‘Primo/Prima Procrastinator’.  If you are waiting to get one at a low ‘used’ price, you may have to wait another 100 months as I do not see any sane person trading one in any time soon!!!
