    Also used the trail. It was great to explore and take a break from the games.

    Quoted from paddlepaw:

    If we are talking about the wide trail through the woods, then yes: My daughter and I took a nature hike to clear our heads. She played for almost 8 hours yesterday, and wanted to play Space Shuttle at home shortly after waking up today

    I just wanted to say thanks for such an amazing time! I'm really into classic sterns right now and got to play until my heart was content. I got to see so many amazing machines I never knew existed. What an incredible experience!

    #204 7 months ago

    We've been refining a lot of games to better lighting (warm white frosted LEDs for GI.) The classic sterns are one of those that we really need to upgrade. We just finished Catacomb, but we need to go down the row and do them all. We did the GI and the CPU controlled lights on that game. It's a time consuming process (resistors added to every CPU controlled light socket), but worth it in the end.

    Quoted from robotron911:

    Totally agree about the lineup change.... far less crowding with the exception of the small back room with all of the really A+ games. However, even there the Alien pin seemed to take up most of the attention.

    Yes, agree the crowd was dispersed better. Besides the back room, the Stern row was filled up pretty much all day, but we got to play what we wanted. Sometimes just waited behind someone that was playing multiple games to get a turn, but no problems or issues. Once again a well run show. The support staff did fantastic at trying to fix and keep pins running on the fly. Thanks Clay for a great show once again.

    I had a wicked awesome game on Paragon. So good that I think I flipped the score board. I wish someone could review the tapes and let me know.

    Had a great time. Spent all my time playing the woodrails, the EM's, and a few of the "WTF IS THIS?" games in the back secret room. A Michigan treasure for sure! Thanks Clay and the whole VFW team!

    #208 7 months ago
    Quoted from cfh:

    Did anybody find the new VFW happy trail? If so was it utilized??
    And I agree Doug’s VFW breakfast sandwich was the best I’ve ever had anywhere

    I found the trail and definitely took a few breaks during the day to ride my OneWheel through the track. So much fun.

    Sorry we only use the cameras to watch the fights between us.

    Mums the word.

    Quoted from mbwalker:

    Only about 350 to go...
    It is a bit overwhelming, isn't it?

    Since I've been keeping track we have played 125 of the games in the last 3 visits. It is going to take a while to get through them all, but I'm young, so I have a chance

    Loved the technoplay space team. Oddball design that was pretty fun

    #214 7 months ago

    I would make the drive to just play in the newest building to the east. The Data East wall was a lot of fun to explore. My first Baywatch experience!

    The new arrangement of games was great. Must have been a lot of time and energy but it appeals to my OCD.

    Thanks to Clay and all involved.

    The tech staff has been told by the Master of Ceremonies that we will be fired if we flunk a random drug test.
