    Anybody remember those “mr robot” vending machines in the rest stops on the Garden State Parkway back in the day? Thanks for the memories.

    #202 7 days ago

    Jealous! Have fun y’all. I’ll have to plan better next year.

    #205 7 days ago

    I've taken a billion photos but not sure how many turned out well. Going to take awhile to go through them.

    Been a great show so far as usual. Great seeing so many familiar faces and for meeting some new people.

    And still 2 days to go!

    My Son and I enjoyed the show. Very nice! Loved the ice Cold Beer game that someone brought. Wouldn’t mind bringing that home for sure.

    #208 7 days ago

    Some quick unedited shots of the Ohio Burn Unit last night. Such a cool, unique addition to the entertainment.

    Overall a great show. Games were in really nice shape and there was a great selection. Only change I would suggest is more lighting. Some games were hard to see the ball and using my phone light to see what the vendors were selling was not the best. Will definitely be back next year.

    #210 7 days ago

    The dungeons and dragons pinball at the show for today only, dropping the price down to 3000. Seems the sound is not working haven't looked at it yet. If you want it text me 440 263 7356 cash only and take it home with you today or tomorrow.

    #211 7 days ago

    Had a great time at the show, it was long overdue after two years of missing it. Nice selection of pins. Nice selection of vendors (could always use more). ClePin staff very friendly as was the hotel staff.

    A big 'thank you' to all involved, including everyone that brought a pin to share.

    Stern Connect seems to have taken off big time - lots and lots of people using it.

    People always complain about it being dark and then they crank up the lights and they complain about glare.

    Pinball is better in the dark than a bright room I thought it was fine. Most pinball machines have lights on the playfield.

    Great show as always. Had family stuff today but might sneak back up tonight for a few late night flips.

    #214 7 days ago

    Awesome time so far..this is our first time at this event, and it's probably the best show / tournament we've been to! Awesome selection of free play games , Tilt Amusements brought 15 or so new sterns !!! If you wanna get a bond contact troy now, don't sleep on it before its a year wait! Sterling absolutely blew up Godzilla 3.96 BILLION! And the Friday night fire show.. awesome!

    My wife and I enjoyed the show today, as always. Got to meet and see some folks and play a bunch of pins. I also especially enjoyed Gamatron. Thanks to all who worked to make this show happen!

    That fudge for the win!
    Epic show.

    Thanks to Donnie and Brian, and all the vendors who came.

    There were so many helpful people ready to unload and breakdown games.

    Can’t wait til next year!

    Erik did a great job with the tournaments on twitch. Thank you.

    #226 6 days ago

    Personally I feel like the show has outgrown the space. Playing Saturday with the crowd was tough.

    #227 5 days ago

    My son and I were there all day Friday and stayed over night. We played for at least 10 hours. A big thanks to Tilt Amusements who brought at least 20 of the newer Stern machines. The show was lots of fun and looked like the tournament was very busy. I was surprised that there was only one JJP and one Spooky pinball machine there. The Ultraman and the Dialed In machines had problems throughout Friday. I counted over 100 pinball machines in main room and then there was another 10 - 15 in the room where the girls were holding their tournament. I'm not sure you could squeeze another machine in the main room. The show was well run and the hotel accommodations were roomy and clean. I'm looking forward to attending again next year!

    #228 5 days ago

    Was there any food / drinks this year? I did not spend much time looking thru the hotel but I seem to recall there was food prior years.

    #229 5 days ago

    Home and unloaded. Thanks to everyone that was part of the show. Don and his family run a great show that im thrilled to support. There were a lot of people and I enjoyed talking to them. My voice wasnt the greatest since i talked so much, but it didnt stop me. We brought 18 games for the show, sold 7, but came home with 17, go figure, lol. Cant wait till next year

    I don't believe so, but there's a restaurant in the hotel, and there's another half dozen options within a 5-minute walk. I had meals at the hotel, Denny's, Winking Lizard, and the Bonefish Grill.

    I switched it up this year and did Uber eats all weekend. I never left the show. Haha

    This will likely be my last year of bringing games.

    The mister robot had an accident, so for me that was the final straw.

    It getting too costly to transport, and maintain games on the floor when people are neglecting them/power conditions stressing game electronics.

    Otherwise good show as always. Looking forward to next year

    What happened to it?

    I enjoyed the private tour you gave me on it one evening late.

    I do remember watching that thing do it's routine and wondering how it was possible these weren't all immediately broken/damaged on location, especially with all those kids and teens running around. Looks pretty complicated and fragile.

    #240 4 days ago

    sorry to chime in late here, but thanks to don and crew for a great show. we didnt get to attend last year, and this year were there for friday and saturday mid afternoon. but a great show. we had a ton of fun. (don, i was the bald guy that met you in the elevator... dont be alarmed. LOL)

    Awesome show as always, one of my favorite tournaments, all the games played great with familiar classics like Nitro Ground Shaker and Mystic back in the classics again this year. I was fortunate to finish 2nd in classics, finished 3rd last year, really like the old video games on free play too! Track & field and Tron were both great. This show is a must if you haven’t been, thanks to Donnie and all the staff for running such a great show.

    #242 3 days ago

    Any chance one of those huge Godzilla banners are for sale?!

    If you're referring to the banners in the Tilt area - no. I asked.

    #245 2 days ago

    No not those
    The giant huge ones when you walk in they were like 8ft tall!
    In the hallway w Mr Robot

    #246 2 days ago

    I think Marco brought those and pretty sure they were display only.

    Quoted from chuckwurt:

    The fact that distributors made a habit of selling these for a profit is also why you probably won’t be seeing them much anymore. They were intended as promo Schwag to help sell games and dress up show booths, not as product.

    That policy changed on the normal ones. Totally fair game to buy and sell now. But now it’s a matter of time the giant ones go the same route. Haha
