    Somebody needs to bring an old 486 with Chip's Challenge. There are four level sets now. I still enjoy playing it.

    #52 4 years ago
    Quoted from PinballManiac40:

    Decided to bring that Cyclone?

    I'm thinking about it. You up to help me move the damn thing?

    #53 4 years ago

    Note to self and others: Bring earplugs this year!

    #54 4 years ago
    Quoted from BrianZ:

    I'm thinking about it. You up to help me move the damn thing?

    Sure can help if you promise not to let it go down the stairs with me under it.

    How did you know about the JD moving fiasco?

    #56 4 years ago

    Probably going to bring two. Just being lazy on declaring which ones. Still plenty of time to go and I'm sure we'll meet or exceed last year's total.

    WooHoo!! LAH !! Maybe we can find a way to put in a ColorDMD in that thing.
    You can leave your Precious Indy at home since mine is already on the list to bring.

    #58 4 years ago
    Quoted from BrianZ:

    How did you know about the JD moving fiasco?

    Uh, you told me a little bit of the story as I was working on one of your games a while back.
    We can cut it in half to make it easier to move if you like.

    Yeah. I appreciate you. Right now I'm thinking LAH and TS. That'll depend on if any other TS shows up, though. If so, I'll probably bring TOTAN and LAH.

    Either way, but at least that will be another game with a ColorDMD installed.
    FYI, Keith does normally bring his TOTAN to the Expo. It is his favorite game.

    #61 4 years ago

    Might bring mine and put a for sale tag on it. It's almost time for some used TWD premiums to start hitting the market.

    #62 4 years ago

    Giddy up!

    Quoted from jwo825:

    I would like to see one in person and play it. That would be cool.

    Quoted from Nevus:

    TWD premium? Only one I seen around Houston is at Joystix. www.joystixgames.com

    #65 4 years ago

    C'mon. You know I don't buy new. Otherwise I'd have one already.

    #66 4 years ago

    I was just saying that the only place I know to play TWD premium is at Joystix.

    Pinball Designer Joe Balcer talks about his creations on Saturday, 11/14, at 2pm. He has designed some killer machines including Wizard of Oz, Simpsons Pinball Party, Star Ship Troopers, Star Wars Trilogy and many more. Super cool guy and he likes Cigars!

    #68 4 years ago

    Derp! Need more coffee. I thought that you were responding to me.

    Not that time. I'm allowed to respond to others, I hope.

    #70 4 years ago

    Yes, you have my permission to associate with others. If you can take your head out of a pinball machine long enough to socialize, that is.

    #71 4 years ago

    Ken Graham will be speaking at 11am on 11/14. Former Williams Programmer talks about Atari VCS system, Joust, Bubbles, Splat!, Sinistar, Joust Pinball and more.

    He is a co-owner of the Game Preserve in Houston, which is open 6 days a week.

    Gerry Stellenberg of Multimorphic will talk about P3 at noon on 11/14.

    The P3 is a modular, multi-game, pinball platform that merges the physical gameplay with interactive art, modular shots, and customizable cabinet.

    http://www.multimorphic.com/index.php/p3-pinball-platform/pre-orders#
    Looks like they are aiming for shipping in early 2016.

    I should be conscious again just about that time

    #74 4 years ago

    50 days until showtime!

    #75 4 years ago

    Looking for a decent used batman translite. Anybody?

    #76 4 years ago

    28 pins listed so far.
    A Zookeeper vid made the list.

    #77 4 years ago

    I'm going this year. I recall at a Texas pin fest that a mention of a new pinball glass was coming on the scene. What happened to that? My gorgar needs a new glass and hopefully I can find a good deal.

    Spoke to Keith today and we agreed of my pins to bring Iron Man - Stark Industries Pinball again to HAAG Expo.
    Other options were my Metallica Pro or KISS Pro, but Keith feels that Charles from Joystix will probably bring both of those
    and not too many people own Iron Man.

    ...so Iron Man it is.

    Get ready for Iron Man to hand your ass to you

    #79 4 years ago
    Quoted from hassellcastle:

    Get ready for Iron Man to hand your ass to you

    I be ready for IronMan.

    34 day bump.

    #82 4 years ago

    Anyone selling anything at the expo?

    #83 4 years ago

    PavBall and I will be there this year. No way work gets in the way of that again this time.

    #84 4 years ago

    One Xenon and Cyclone are listed as being for sale.
    Pretty sure the Black Rose and Checkpoint will be.
    Rollergames will be for sale.
    If the Zaccaria Soccer King makes it, for sale it shall be.

    #85 4 years ago
    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    PavBall and I will be there this year. No way work gets in the way of that again this time.

    And no bloody LSU game to attend?

    Any chance of sell or trading dr.who?

    #87 4 years ago

    Mine? Oh no. I don't see it leaving my collection for a long time. My brother is going to borrow it for a while, and I'll miss it while it is gone.

    Arkansas is playing LSU this year during the event, not as big of a deal as Alabama the past two years...

    #89 4 years ago

    If you plan to attend the Houston Expo this year, the tournament area is offering up a show only special for a Stern Kiss Pro or Stern Game Of Thrones Pro.

    If you are interested in, please check out the market forum thread for additional information.

    21 days to go bump.
    Sign up those games!!

    #92 4 years ago

    I'll be there

    #93 4 years ago

    Great. Bringing any games?

    #94 4 years ago

    Can't make it out it this year but I will definitely put it on my to do list in 2016.

    You guys go have a blast and drink a beer for me.

    #95 4 years ago

    Looks like I will be supplying the GoT pro for the tourney. I am really looking forward to the show. (And taking GoT home)

    #96 4 years ago

    I'm bringing 5 systems - Sega Saturn, Amiga 500, Intellivision, NES, and TI 99/4A.

    #97 4 years ago

    For those on the fence, the 2014 Houston show exceeded my expectations. I had just moved to Houston from the midwest, and honestly, the free play area was larger than the Chicago expo.

    #98 4 years ago

    And we thank you, Spraynard, for moving down and starting 2 pinball leagues. Woohoo!!!
    Looks like you get to take a break from running both pinball leagues to enjoy the tournament at the Expo with no other worries other than trying to beat my high scores.

    #99 4 years ago

    If I can get off work for Fri Nov 13, then I'll sign up to bring a pinball machine.
    I brought a Gottlieb Sys 1 each of the past two years.
    Would like to bring a Bally Twin Win e-m if things work out schedule-wise.
    If not, I'll hope to arrive Sat morning and o-d on pinball all day Sat day & Sat nite.

    #100 4 years ago

    Guys I'm coming from OKC to the Houston show, and bringing 5 systems as mentioned earlier. I currently have 3 monitors for the systems. Does anyone here have a couple 13" RGB monitors or TV's with RCA inputs that they would be willing to let me use for the show or sell to me? I'm bringing 2 commodore/amiga monitors and a tv with RCA inputs all 13".
