    Quoted from Xerico:

    It is a retail Billiards & Game store in Mesquite Texas.
    The website for the place is http://pinballandmore.com/
    It is not a public arcade where players can visit and play for hours unsupervised.
    It's primary focus is selling Pinball, Arcade and Billiards to the public.
    They do have a massive collection of games.

    What day and time is the tourney?
    Is it a day or two before TPF? A week before?
    Nice to have it in my home state but still need to plan a bit.

    Thanks for the link.
    I see now it is a week before.
    Easy for us to drive back to Dallas the next week for TPF, but I can see where others would need a lot of air and hotel time to do both.

    HAHA Congrats Peacock for winning Michigan; great job dude!

    #156 11 days ago

    Wait the IFPA tourney page said the event was at the Dallas convention center?!

    #157 11 days ago

    Well rereading the page in question looks like I was wrong and booked a hotel in downtown Dallas

    https://www.ifpapinball.com/2017-ifpa-nationalswomenspin-masters-championships-head-to-dallas/

    A little confusing since the main nationals page didn't talk about location and the article above mentions convention center first

    We are flying in on Wednesday, and staying at one of the Marriotts near the freeway close to the Fun Billiards place. Does anyone know where we can squeeze in some pinball near there before or after? Pinball Map shows nothing in Mesquite. The expo thing at the convention center doesn't look that tempting either really. So, what is there to do nearby? Anyone local want to show us their private collection? I'll return the favor if you come to Boise.

    This looks promising:

    A bit north of Billiards and game store, but sound like they got some well maintained machines.

    I even saw something on the website that said "free pinball wed night till 10??.."

    http://www.nickelrama.com/

    Might be a place for the state champs to meetup and practice??

    #160 10 days ago

    There's gonna be plenty of pinball at the competition - I plan on hunting down quality BBQ (of which there is none in NYC) in my free time.

    I'd love to meet some out of state people. We live in Richardson at 635/75. I have Metallica, Crescendo, Farfalla, Xenon, or there's Nickelrama in Garland which has every major stern release from the last few years minus avengers.

    Edit - was thinking of a different game.

    The games - are extra balls allowed to be played, or are they typically turned off or not allowed?
    The venue - is there a spectator area with monitors? Can people come in and watch for free?

    Not BBQ but if you want a Texas atmosphere and a great burger I like Rodeo Goat.

    Had some badass brisket in Fort Worth when I was there for work. It's like 30-40 mins from Dallas though.

    Quoted from Boise_D:

    is there a spectator area with monitors

    Assume no. I don't know how much rearranging FUN is going to do or where the games will be, but they've had one or two Stern launch parties at their place, and with 30-40 people it gets crowded. It's a retail showroom, not an arcade. Will probably be more manageable than what I remember because when they did those, they had all their games in front turned on and playable so there was a LOT of people moving from game to game complicating things.

    I really wouldn't expect any kind of recording rigs or monitors. Nobody in D/FW has that stuff and unless they've got someone from Austin coming up with all of it, or IFPA is bringing something... FUN has security cameras?

    *edit* I can compare to PHOF, since I was there this year... It won't feel as "cramped" as Vegas, but overall it's a smaller space from my perception, and things like pool tables take up a lot of floor room. I think it will feel more open than PHOF for the players, for anyone that's been there, just not obviously all the tons of games for spectators to play and wander around in.....I wanted to drop in Thurs/Fri night just to check it out since I'm local, but might not depending on what the setup is. I don't want to get in the way. :\

    I recorded the Ohio State Championship finals and will be getting commentary done for it, and then will have it edited and uploaded in the coming weeks.

    For anyone craving some on-camera pinball action in this downtime before Nationals and PAPA you can check out Ohio's finals from LAST YEAR (which took me an entire year to get edited :p ). Anyways here's the link for that - » YouTube video
