Beercade is a new game that actually rewards
skill with, what else, beer. The Beercade works
like any other arcade fighting game, except the
standard coin slots have been replaced with a
pair of spigots, drip trays, and motion sensors.
Players set their cups down to start the game
and then choose from five characters. There is
no timetable for a home version to be released.
