    Quoted from MrBally:

    We look forward to whysnow's tips & suggestions on how the tournaments should be run.

    Your obsession with Hilton knows no bounds.

    Maybe a high score tournament on predator

    I didn't know that chris hanson was making a guest appearance at the VFW this year

    I did not see this last year. Is it hidden away?

    If anyone has extra Saturday tickets I'll take em.

    #206 17 days ago
    Quoted from Beyndtstng:

    I really enjoyed the Saturday tournament last year. Game selection was great and so was the group. I think the only flaw with it was the winner would be put in the queue instead of the loser. If you lost then you had to play someone who won their match. It was pretty easy to get on a 8+ game winning streak that way if you found yourself in the “winner’s row.” I would make it to where a winner had to play a previous winner. That way you wouldn’t see huge streaks for either side. I vote for this again!

    You will always have a winner playing a loser. Not sure how you could have winners playing winners without leaving the losers sitting in the queue forever??

    Quoted from tmontana:

    There were four chairs for the winners. Winner 1 sits in the chair loser 1 waits. Next match result occurs, winner 2 comes back and gives their chip. They play the next winner in line. Just make a winner chair row and loser chair row. Winners plays winners, losers play losers.

    I had no idea he's been banned from pinside.

    So in this scenario who goes to the back of the lines?

    #210 16 days ago

    Ticket sales are brisk. Saturday has been sold out for a while. And Friday and Sunday are going. If you want to go to the show, i would not wait to get a ticket reservation. Also remember, nothing goes on forever, all things have life cycles. Don't assume 'next time' for any thing...

    That last bit sounds ominous. Maybe I'm reading too much into it.

    #212 16 days ago

    It is what it is.

    #213 16 days ago

    Very ominous.....

    #214 16 days ago

    Just got my 2 tickets for the Friday Show - Ovechkin & GF will be there for 3rd year in a row. Hope to meet you in person this year Clay as well as other Pinsiders! Thanks again for putting this on!

    #215 16 days ago
    Quoted from tmontana:

    It’s just creating two separate rows. If there is nobody sitting then loser sits chair one of his row and winner sits chair 1 of his row. Next people that come back, match winner with winner and loser with loser. More games that way. I’m just happy to play longer so I’m cool with whatever if it gets me an extra few hours Saturday.

    This is my next show and I'm already salivating about a rematch with Jjsmooth.
    ITS A ONE EYED BATTLE!

    #218 12 days ago

    I get the feeling u salivate thinking about a "one eyed" battle quite a bit.
    I think that's known as an Indiana Sword Fight.
    Touche!

    #219 12 days ago

    LOL
    Touche you bastard.

    #220 12 days ago

    WE GOT LASERS DICKHEAD

    #221 12 days ago

    The game of chess is like a swordfight

    #222 11 days ago

    There's only like 25 tickets reservations left for sunday. slightly more for friday. (saturday long sold out.) don't wait too long if you want to go...

    #223 11 days ago

    Jjsmooth Jerr bear you can clink softballs outta the park for sure but next time we play it won't be slow pitch bitch. LUV YA!

    Hi Clay,

    Have plans for the Friday E.M. Tourney been solidified yet? Just wanna make sure I don't miss out on tickets for that.

    See ya in May,
    Ryan

    Note this year is the last year the Ann Arbor vfw show will be in its current format.
    Next year the show will be just two days, saturday and sunday (and at higher ticket prices.)
    There will be no 'friday' show day.

    The problem with friday during the day is all the club member work day jobs. and asking them to take a vacation day for this tomfoolery is getting old in their book. and the friday 4pm show thing is tough too because they have worked their day job, and then have to come work a pinball show. I guess this gets old, and frankly i can't blame them... Hence next year the 'friday' part of the show is just going away. Then we can concentrate our effort on saturday and sunday.

    The friday EM tourney *might* still happen next year, but it would be at 4pm (instead of 9am.) Or there's a chance it may move to saturday night. Or it may just go away altogether.

    Not sure how high you're thinking, but most likely still a great deal for the opportunity to play the whole day with such a huge selection of great games. And all working, due to the great folks helping out.
    And I'm a pretty cheap bastard.

    #228 9 days ago

    Friday going away is understandable. I’d much rather the show lose a day than burn out the minions and lose the whole shebang. Friday is a travel day and/or night for a lot of us anyway.

    #229 8 days ago

    Yea that's my feeling too Yancy.

    #230 8 days ago

    I will miss Friday. It was my favorite day with the EM tournament and less traffic than Saturday. That being said, I can understand why the VFW crew wouldn't want to burn a vacation day running a show. Not exactly most folks idea of a vacation. I'm glad to support the show in whatever iteration in continues in.

    #231 8 days ago

    maybe in 10-15 yrs, when all the minions are old and retired
    Fridays can come back, as all those old farts will be just looking for stuff
    to do with all their spare time

    I'm sure old "Blood & Guts" Clay will want to be keeping the machines running year-round and hosting shows then.

    #233 8 days ago

    I thought that after the show this year, we were going to put clay into a cryo chamber and wait until 2112 to unfreeze him

    #234 8 days ago

    Technically friday and sunday are the 'same' in terms of number of people, as the ticket sales are identical for both days.

    #235 8 days ago

    I love Friday at VFW as well but will continue to badger, blackmail and threaten a certain pizza company to sponsor the EM tournament no matter what day it is held.

    I like going on Friday but I agree with this, Friday is really only good for locals.

    Haven’t been to the VFW in two years looking forward to going back.

    you are you calling a minion?

    clay makes us wear orange shirts and no overalls!! and don't even get me started on the [expendable] staff parading around in their red shirts like no-name, one time appearance star trek crew members

    #238 6 days ago

    Is he willing to pay a premium for the spot he missed?

    #246 2 days ago

    #247 1 day ago
