    I'm bringing a Taxi, and I just registered.

    #132 7 months ago
    Quoted from zacaj:

    I've been purposely trying not to bring any this time
    Seemed like they were the majority last year and not getting as much play as the newer

    That means they were played 90% of the time instead of 99% of the time, in my experience.

    Quoted from ForceFlow:

    Yep, those are easy enough to prepare ahead of time.
    I may also make a sign about unplugging the game when out of order. Or do you think there was already too much signage around the check-in table?

    When my Taxi went down on Saturday, I put an Out of Order sign on it, but I also took it off Free Play because I figured this was also the audience where 0% of the people playing it called or texted to let me know that it was resetting.

    If a game can't be taken off Free Play, unplugging it is probably a good idea. If a machine doesn't use electricity, I don't think an official Out of Order sign will really stop some "determined" show attendees. Something like throwing a blanket on it might do the trick in that case.

    Quoted from Blake:

    Where were you Friday??? Dave and I were representing for the Coop. Did anyone else local show on sat?

    Prominent Vermonter Jon Chad was there Saturday. And my new friends from Middlebury(ish) Nate and Laura. They took home a Cue Ball Wizard.

    Quoted from Blake:

    Awesome!!! Good to hear. Are they new to the Coop? The names dont sound familiar but im terrible with names so. Was there a tournament sat?

    They haven't been to the Co-op yet, but contacted us via the web site.

    Yes, I ran the pingolf tournament Saturday.
