8D5314B7-AA6C-4FBF-A8DA-4EBD1D02CF3E.jpegGot home around 9pm, my first Allentown was great!! I enjoyed it a lot and from what everyone is saying it’s only gonna get better from here!
I enjoyed meeting so many new people, putting faces to names, hounding everyone to support my new show and handing out tons of flyers!
I had a Caveman in the car from LBJ that we had agreed in back in 2018 and just FINALLY got it! I should have brought it to Freeplay because it only took me an hour to get it playing complete games. Of course it has no rubbers or anything but I could have gotten them at the show with the money saved from admission!
I also was able to pick up a Target Alpha head that switched hands a couple times!
Very happy to have 2 new games running at the end of the show! How fantastic. Ivan (and Gabe) were really great, I appreciate them giving me advice for the show. Ivan was very down to earth and approachable. He did a great job despite the enormous challenges Pinfest faced this year!
The games weren’t too bad, I played many uncommon games that I never had a chance to try. Time Fantasy wasn’t in freeplay but I played the hell out of it. Sterling was awesome for bringing it! Also sataneatscheese’s RAM was awesome. That “LIONMAN er... something” callout killed me! Shoutout to alexmogil for bringing those sweet ass LIONMAN tokens his secret Santa had given him. Been jonesing for one since I first laid eyes on them!
All in all, very fun and enjoyable, great first show and everyone was fantastic! So many people said hello! Many apologies if I didn’t recognize you or forgot your name, I only slept 3 hours before driving here! My brain was totally fried for most of it. Still got some great finds, next year I’m gunning for the Fleamarket first!
Thank you all for making Pinfest awesome! Hope to see some familiar faces at Saratoga Silverball in 2 weeks!
