Is this really a big problem? I’ve never even heard of these type of cafes. I must be hanging out in the wrong neighborhoods.May 27, 2013 3:58 pm at 3:58 pm #520499
Most of the ones I’ve seen have signs calling them “Skill Games” and not “Internet Cafes”. In Columbus they can mostly be found in decrepit strip malls, but I’ve seen them in small towns all over Ohio as well.

Lol, I know someone who was planning to open one. I guess he will have to look into the barcade option instead. ;)May 29, 2013 1:23 pm at 1:23 pm #520502June 18, 2013 9:35 pm at 9:35 pm #520503
