    1109.15 Gaming machines and gaming tables. Two percent,
    but not less than one, of each type of gaming table pro-
    vided shall be accessible and provided with a front approach.
    Two percent of gaming machines provided shall be accessible
    and provided with a front approach. Accessible gaming
    machines shall be distributed throughout the different types
    of gaming machines provided.

    There is no definition of Gaming machines in the IBC.

    1. . Does this section require 2% of gameing tables like pinball, Foosball, Pool, or 2% machines like Pacman, or other vidio games to be accessible?

    2. Or does the games in #1 count as vending machines?

    3. Or do 100% of these games need to be accessible?

    4. Do shooting type video games need to comply with 1110.4.14 Shooting Facilities with Firing Positions?

    2. No
    3. 2%
    4. No...it's a game, not actual shooting....

    Why is the building code regulating movable equipment? Does this mean you need to get a building permit to replace the game that went out of fashion last year with this year's latest 7 greatest?

    Not much different than toilets. I don't think anyone requires a permit to replace a toilet. Same with vending machines, door nobs, mirrors, lines for parking spaces and many other things that are required to be accessible.

    That clears it up. Too bad that it wasn't in the code earlier
