Arachnid Rep Helps in Houston Devastation from Hurricane Harvey

Arachnid Rep, Deondre “Kidd” Cardenas, who lives in Houston, was one of the many who stepped up to help rescue people from their homes and take them to shelter.

One particular incident Kidd will remember was on Sunday, August 27, when he was out in a boat with other rescuers, he noticed an arm waving out of an attic. They used a chainsaw to cut a hole in the house and there was a little girl with her mother and father. Kidd pulled the little girl out and carried her to safety, and then her parents were helped to the boat.

 Also helping was Star City Amusement, Roddy, who donated money for food for the rescuers. Elite Entertainment, Mike Brown, was on another boat in Dickerson helping people get out of their homes, and JD Rodriguez, from AVS, donated his time to the local Church by helping with the clean up and feeding people in the area.
Arachnid extends our sympathy to all the people suffering loss from Hurricane Harvey and the devastation that has affected the lives of many.

NGS – No Greater Sacrifice

Thanks to all the players that donated to the No Greater Sacrifice charity. All proceeds were donated to the families of fallen and wounded service members. $5,000 was donated by dart players at Qualifying BullShooter Regionals, the BullShooter Finals and some players mailed entry forms to Arachnid 360. The lucky dart game winner was David Delp out of Roanoke, Virginia. The Galaxy 3 Camouflage Home Game was shipped to the Delps, in Virginia, the week after the BullShooter. David said he is really enjoying the game and getting a lot of practice in! David is married to Lisa Delp (a Women’s A player) and they have nine children. His younger children play darts, so maybe there will be more Delp shooters coming in the future! David and Lisa donated to NGS at the Virginia BullShooter Qualifying Regional filling out many forms for the worthy cause. Congratulations on your win and enjoy your new game!

No Greater Sacrifice and Arachnid 360 are asking for your help in honoring the sacrifices of our Service members by investing in their children through small monetary donations. NGS is dedicated to the children of our nation’s fallen and wounded Service members. NGS scholarships deliver assistance to reduce any unmet financial costs of higher education, which includes in-state tuition, room and board, special equipment, books, or other expenses deemed necessary.

Your donation will help the children of our Service members as will as give you a chance to win a one-of-a-kind camouflage Galaxy 3 home game. This special one-of-a-kind soft tip dartboard will be given away at this years BullShooter 32 Finals in Chicago on May 25-29, 2017.

Remote Play Dart Game of the Month v1

Arachnid ran a promotion on their newest game on the Galaxy 3, Double Down Cricket. The promotion ran from March 15 to April 15, 2017. You had to be a registered HotButton player and have the most remote play games (in Double Down Cricket) during that period of time. Monty Olson, from Rapid City, South Dakota, was the lucky dart player that won the new iPad. Congratulations Monty, enjoy your iPad!

The newest soft-tipped dart game from Arachnid 360 and the first installment in our new series, Remote Play Dart Game of the Month is Double Down Cricket. Only available on the Galaxy 3 Live series dartboards.

This new cricket game gives the traditional Cricket dart game a fun and extra challenging twist.

The concept is pretty simple: Throw two of your favorite soft tipped darts at the two randomly assigned doubles to “double in” before you can begin the Cricket stage. Then, once you close out all the marks in the Cricket stage, you must “double down” on the Double 1 to finish the game. ( You know – that frustrating number historically positioned between the 20 and 18 on the standard dartboard layout 😉 ) Oh, by the way, there are NO Bullseyes AND NO Points. Sounds easy, right?

The game is a race to the finish. It sports a new design and visual effects.

Next time you play on the G3 dartboard, give it a try and let us know what you think.

AND, from March 15th to April 15th, 2017, We’ve decided to recognize soft-tipped dart playing enthusiasts up to the Double Down Challenge by awarding an iPad to the hugeist Fan who plays the most Double Down dart games in Remote Play!!!

That’s right, the HotButton, registered, ranked player with the most plays of Double Down Cricket wins an iPad!

Arachnid Turns Pink

In 2015, an estimated 589,430 individuals in this nation died from cancer, the second most common cause of death.

An all women dart league was established in Yankton, SD, called “Pink Ladies Dart League” with profits going towards assisting those afflicted with cancer–women, men and children. The Pink Ladies also step in and help by cleaning, cooking, etc. Their motto is “No One Fights Alone.”

Everyone, in every city in the nation, has been affected by cancer. Arachnid employee, Laura Freedman, wearing the “Fight Like a Girl” shirt in the photo, is a breast cancer survivor. Arachnid celebrates “Pink Ladies Dart League Day” and the fight against cancer. Arachnid joins everyone around the nation by wearing pink today (October14) and looking forward to the cure of cancer.

Arachnid 360 owners Tony Beall, Chris Beall, and Shawn Beall are pleased to announce the promotion of Sam Zammuto to President, Pat Rice to V.P. of Engineering and Innovation, and Mike Gannon to V.P. of Customer Service.

Sam Zammuto joined the Arachnid Sales and Promotion staff in 1982.  Through his direct help the first dart league was formed, he helped design the first soft-tip “Cricket” game, participated in the invention of automated communication, and started the BullShooter World Tour, which is now in its 31st year.  Sam is very well known and respected in the coin-op industry and has been very instrumental in the success and growth of darts around the world.  Tony Beall commented, “Through his supervision, Arachnid has prospered throughout the years and we look forward to our continued growth under his direction as President.”

Pat Rice joined Arachnid in 1992 in the Engineering Department.  He has been a driving force leading the engineering changes to Arachnid’s dart games.  This includes the innovation of the Galaxy II and  the Galaxy 3 Live, and also with Arachnid’s electronic shuffleboards–the Super Shuffle and DiscGlo Shuffle.  With his continued support as V.P. of Engineering and Innovation, his team continues to work to develop products to keep up with the future trend.

Mike Gannon joined Arachnid in 2002 as a Midwest Sales Representative and was later promoted to Sales / Customer Service Manager.  Prior to Arachnid, Mike already had 22 years of coin-op experience and had many industry acquaintances in the marketplace.  Arachnid feels fortunate to have Mike’s expertise in the coin-op industry, while he continues to lead a team of technicians as V.P. of Customer Service.
