    Has anyone experienced a trashed game in a bar room atmosphere? I've been on the fence on running a few games. Have a open invite to put some games in a local bar. My games are too nice for the bar, so I guess my question is how nasty to they beat them?

    I'd like to know some of the darker stories.
    The place in mind can host a few less decent folk from time to time.

    I'll say his name three times and hope he appears

    After those instances do you:
    Pull your games from facility ?

    Put a claim with your insurance? The facility insurance?

    Have a mean conversation with someone in charge?

    Keep repairing game if it earns?

    Sell game on pinside?

    Is it too big of a question to ask what the contract entails?

    Sorry I'm the village idiot here, what license needs to be paid for?

    Great help- thank you
    I'll look into city codes sometime this week.
    I'd much rather just be a customer at someone else's pinbar, but no one else is doing it.

    Back to what a contract entails, is this something my attorney looks at or is it more casual like a rental agreement? I'm thinking along the lines of a rental contract right now.

    Would it be off to word something like a damage deductible? By that I mean it a game gets really trashed one evening the facility would cover damages over a marked amount (say anything over $1000 per incident, or 8% of games total value whichever is greater)?

    For instance I bring in a new title. Say Rob Zombie. Someone one night thinks rob zombie is a asshole and destroys the game. Or better yet, a stolen game. I'm not sure how insurance behaves in a third party environment, it would seem natural they would tell me call the facilities insurance. So something in a contract may need to outline this right? Will insurance that I buy cover everything? Or will the insurance balk at a high claim due to a weak contract?

    The more I read here the more I appreciate the immense risk you all take in this buisness.
