What Josh Does: When Josh isn't providing businesses with fun games room products, he can be found unleashing his competitive side by wiping all of the high scores off of the pinball machines in our showrooms.  What Mike Does: Mike seems to have been born in the wrong era, as his favourite films and music stem from the early 1970s.
