    September 25th, at Cointaker. Sponsored by Stern. I first caught wind of this event on Facebook. Looks like a great time, and the wife wants to attend as well! Who else will be attending?

    No one?

    First I have heard of it but they are a close drive for me so I will most likely go if it is still on

    They had a open house last year, games on free play and free food, with no admission cost.

    This year it's $10/person.....

    They had about 15-20 games to play. If STERN is sponsoring it this year, maybe they will have more?

    I don't know if I would drive from TN to attend. It's a nice small local event.

    My wife and I bought our tickets yesterday and are looking forward to it!

    I'm driving from TN anyway LOL. I'm a sucker for these type things. The FB page says so far, special guests include Eric Meunier, John Borg, and Christopher Franchi. That's so far. And yes, food and drinks provided, alcohol available. The kind folks at Cointaker say they will have an Alien pinball present, as well as (fingers crossed) hopefully the new cgc release. That's along with plenty of other games as well. IM IN! And bringing my translites from GnR and GOTG for signing.

    Last year’s open house was really fun. Pins in great shape to play, food was awesome! Can’t wait for next month.

    Definitely a good time.

    Did you move from York down to TN? Hope all is well on your end. I'm planning on going along with some other friends. Looking forward to the get together.

    Road trips are always fun. Enjoy and have a safe trip!

    Great, maybe I can finally get my Mando machine I ordered from them back in the winter time.

    Not to be contrary, but the game wasn't even announced until May. That's the way it goes with new release NIB purchases. Pay up, and wait. If you're lucky you get a game within a month or so. And that's without labor/chip/supply shortages. Obviously I know nothing about your particular situation, but, I've had good interactions with Cointaker in the past. I'm sure they'll make good on your game delivery as soon as they can.

    Good to know. Thanks for the reassurance. This is my first time buying a new game, and it's unsettling to lay down a one-grand deposit, not see anything for months, and be told there is no timetable. Guess I need to be more patient.

    #14 56 days ago

    I will be going. I think there is a chance for new stern game there?

    I hear ya 110%. Unfortunately that's how it is right now with most vendors. I just paid in full for an arcade legends 3 multicade after being told "we have no eta, if you want one, buy it, and it will ship when we get one" lol. That wasn't cointaker, but another vendor. Congrats on your first NIB, it's exciting!! And, you did purchase from a stand up company.

    A few new games if things work out correctly. From what I hear anyway.

    Hey everyone,

    I am happy to share that I am flying up from Dallas to attend this event and do social media coverage for Stern. I am also excited to attend my first big pinball event since 2019, so it will be very good to see so many of you again, or meet you for the first time. See you all there.

    And here I was hoping that I may be the long distance attendee winner, LOL. See you there Jared

    Since several stern employees are going to the show you can be pretty sure the new stern game will be there.

    They just released Mandolorian. Are we talking about another new game already? That would be a nice suprise.

    #21 43 days ago

    Can you buy anything (cointaker stuff, machines) at this event or is it just a party with machines to play?

    #22 43 days ago

    ...seems like it's getting gooder & gooder. Can't wait!

    Stern has a set release schedule for 3 "cornerstone" titles each year. It would be to schedule if it was to happen.

    I understand the party is being postponed! Sorry.

    They just announced another special guest attending on their FB page yesterday. No mention of postponing. Where did you hear this?

    On the original Email I recieved, it said "swap meet". Take that for what it's worth.

    I could have misunderstood,Milissia told me this morning it was being postponed,

    Quoted from rockrand:

    Hmmm, well, she would know. They need to make it public asap if that is the case. I'm planning on driving 9.5 hours from Knoxville,TN and my wife and I have requested Friday the 24th off from work to travel.

    #30 33 days ago

    So, I just spoke with Chris and Melissa from Cointaker. Yes, the event will be postponed due to Covid 19 related events. Melissa said they will be issuing refunds if you prepaid.

    #31 33 days ago

    Bummer. Thanks for the confirmation.

    #32 33 days ago

    Dang, that is a bummer, I was looking forward to this.

    #34 33 days ago

    What does someone at Cointaker with a health issue have to do with your Goveneur?

    Quoted from docquest:

    Cause the OP mentioned it was postponed due to Covid. If it is due to health issues with someone in their family then I'm sorry to hear that but with the mandates in our state starting back up figured it had to do with having large social gatherings. I'll be surprised if the pinball expo actually happens next month at this rate.

    #36 33 days ago

    Amen!

    #37 33 days ago

    I didn't want to mention their personal business online so I said "covid related events". But yes, it's personal, not government related. Best wishes for everyone on the Cointaker team.

    Thanks for the clarification and I'm sorry to hear that. Regardless I still behind my statement that our Governor is an asshole and it goes much further then just the pandemic handling but that's for another forum. Here's to hoping they can have the show in the future cause I was looking forward to going.

    #39 32 days ago

    I know this is a let down those looking forward to this event, but considering the circumstances this is understandable. Why not consider attending the York Show on October 7-8th? At this time since CoinTaker among many others will be a vendor, is it possible to divert your plans?
