    I'll be there. I've never been, but I am looking forward to meeting a lot of local people who share a passion for pinball. If you bring a machine, do you have to stay all three days? I'm not sure I can stay for Sunday.

    Quoted from dnikolich:

    we do require that they not leave until Sunday at the end of the show

    Thanks for the response. I will plan ahead next year so I can bring games. I see some people are bringing older games like Baffle Ball. Are older games like this allowed? Do rare bingo games count to get you in free? If I bring three games, can I get a free pass and my wife get 1/2 price?

    What are the rules for selling a game at the show? Do you have to pay a fee?

    Quoted from Leeb18509:

    Successfully hauled 5 games from Utah with the mini- van. Play 'Em!

    I loved the Old Chicago. My wife kicked my butt numerous times. Such a unique playfield is hard to master. I was thinking the game might be a little more balanced scoring wise if there was a lane change on the top rollover. It seems that either you get the 3 thousand and go ahead or you miss it and fall behind.

    I must have played it 20 times. Thanks for bringing it. Let me know if you ever want to sell it.

    I also really enjoyed the unique games like Wes' (from Universal) Spectrum and Af-Tor. Some games I'm sure are not often seen at shows. It was cool to see him working feverishly during the show to make sure the games were in top condition.

    Quoted from Jgaltr56:

    that super nice Barracora was my favorite

    That baracorra was really nice and the Black Knight with Lower level start mods was Terrific. I would prefer it if it fed to the right flipper so that the habitrail didn't need to go across the bottom of the playfield. The black balls were an awesome touch.

    I also really enjoyed Sorcerer. GB kicked my butt, so it was hard to fall in love. Love the theme, but I might need some extras like those inflatable kiddie bumpers in the bowling alley to really enjoy the game.

    I loved The Hobbit, but I wish the mylar on the playfield didn't affect the ball roll so much.

    Quoted from Nevus:

    Andrew Heighway showed some promo footage of Alien playing

    Heighway was great! He showed me his video of Alien which looks amazing and even though I don't like the obstructive view ramps on FT, It was still a very fun game to play.

    Quoted from WesleyCowan:

    Really enjoyed hearing Trudeau talk about his career

    Trudeau was pretty funny to me. I think he has had some great designs and also some duds. In his second session (the only one I was able to see) he went through all of his designs over the years. He gave the impression that I have had of his designs. He stated that he was constantly under pressure to quickly produce designs. Many died at whitewood, many others made it through, but probably could have been improved or scrapped with more time. I love Silver Slugger, Congo, TX-Sector, Robo-War. Hollywood heat is fun to play. Bride of pinbot and tag team look fun. Black Rose is great, but I'm not a fan of the backglass. Kind of cheesy.

    Quoted from Wyopinball:

    I did miss some vendors

    I was hoping for more vendors with books, magazines, cool shirts, pinball parts etc. I brought a lot of money, but spent very little. Hopefully next year people will take the opportunity to make some money selling more stuff at the show.

    Overall, great show, great people. We had a good time with Lisa and Ryan from Fort Collins. Congrats on your championship Lisa!
    If you guys are out there, PM me so we can get together at Lyons sometime.

    Cirqus Voltaire with the prototype Color DMD

    The color DMD games were great. An incredible improvement.
