Where Nick's Multi-Bingo earned the top spot for custom game of the 2019 Texas Pinball Festival!
1st PRIZE!!! Congratulations, Nick!!! SO well deserved!!!
It's hard to put into words what all this means to Nick and I, but suffice it to say, we're taken-aback and humbled by the response to all of our efforts. So...thank you...to everyone we chat with in Texas, everyone who has chimed in on the thread here, and everyone who will be keeping Nick busy upon his return to Virginia. He's still on the road as we speak, but once he arrives home, Nick has a mountain of mail order to fulfill thanks to YOU!!!
Many more thanks,
Ryan and Nick
