Winner Takes Ale: The Arcade Game That Rewards You With Beer

There are several bars that double as arcades. Now the union of beer and video games is being elevated to a new high score. Arcade game The Last Barfighter -- created for Raleigh's Big Boss Brewing --  is similar to Street Fighter with a few of key differences. 1) All the fighting takes place in a bar. 2) The characters are different -- there's no devilish Blanka but there is a Blanco Diablo named after the brewery's Belgium wit. 3) The winner gets a cup of frothy beer poured into a cup from the machine's cabinet.

This is a drinking game we can get behind. For the time being, you can only play it at special charitable events around Durham, but we'll let you know if someone events the home console version.
