Club Specialty Overseas, Inc.[3], also known as CSOI, was an amusement machine distributor headquartered in Panama as a continuation of Service Games, Panama. It was headed by Richard Stewart[4][5], with the renaming occuring on 12th April, 1962[2].

CSOI continued to act as "worldwide" distributor of Service Games (and later Sega) products throughout the 1960s. Sega would handle the domestic Japanese market, and after re-establishing itself in the US, would handle that territory too. From May 31st, 1973, Sega ditched CSOI and began working with local distribution partners directly[6].
