    In preparation for Arcade Expo (January 16-18, 2015 in Southern California), we thought it would be fun to attempt to break the WORLD RECORD for the "most people playing pinball simultaneously" which was recently set by the Texas Pinball Festival earlier this year. A little friendly competition...all in good fun!

    Might want to fix this:

    "the only thing that could hold us back from breaking the record is a lack of people"

    To:

    "the only thing that could hold us back from breaking the record is a lack of people that can actually follow instructions, and a failed kickstarter campaign full of items that will be worthless if we don't get certified"

    LOL

    Seriously though, it shouldn't be that hard to get a 50% success rate.

    Well...at least I was part of a Guinness Book World Record (277 at TPF) in March this year. Couldn't even last 1 year...Dang!

    Good luck with the event

    You're damn right it is! I'll admit I wish it wasn't all the way in freaking Banning, but then I think about how I fly to Expo or PAGG and shut my whining pie hole.

    Great to see you guys get back on the horse after your first kickstarter. The facility is looking great - what a fantastic permanent collection. All the best with your first Arcade Expo!
