Count me in! I already have my tickets and room!
It seems like most sales and trades happen long before the show, at least that's what I saw in CA at Pin-A-Go-Go, most of what sold at the show wasn't advertised or posted in the forums. I'm surprised not so see similar post and trades in this thread. This is my first time for this show, but always envious of scenes from other shows that have a robust seller's area outside of the show floor.
I'll caveat that I'm also less interested in complete or playable games. My market is junk or project games and if there are show costs to sell a game that's not on the floor, unlikely we'll see a van load of old arcade and collector thinning out projects. I'm not looking for a specific pin, but something I can fix and restore, and not that picky but would like to browse a selection. From the sound of it, that won't be the case at this show.
If anyone is looking to unload a project pin I may be interested. I'm driving up from southern Colorado, no need to bring it to the event if your local or in between. I'm mostly interested in a Early SS or modern pin that needs work, most likely for a re-theme or as parts for custom scratch build. I maybe also interested in just a complete cab from a standard DMD game.
Send me a PM with details.
Also interested in meeting other people interested in making a game from scratch or with experience to share about building a custom game. I'm an artist and maker, but not a programmer or engineer, or game designer, anyone in the region interested in working on a project and want to meet up to just talk shop or even partner on a build, I'm very interested in meeting while at the show. I live in SoCo but may be moving north, finding a 'team' to work on a project might be reason enough. I have fairly fleshed out themes for the movie Fifth Element and another for Blizzard/Activision's video game series Diablo, if there's interest I'll bring work books and details to the show to share.

I'm trying to manage the 32 games
Really appreciate the effort I would imagine a very different show without those games. Thanks also for the pinside meetup.
I really enjoyed the show. It was well organized a nice group of machines and really enjoyed the speaker line up. Thanks to everyone who brought machines and helped support the show.
