First off I want to start this post by saying thank you to all those that came out to our Dialed In! Launch Party at FUN! Billiards & Gameroom Superstore this past Saturday (June 24th) in Mesquite, Texas. I hope everyone had a great time.

Big thanks to Jen Dicosmo of JJP for donating the fabulous prizes for the event.

Our launch party started at 12 noon and we had a pretty full house up until the store closed at 4pm. Everyone that attended was treated with complimentary pizza, chips, cookies, soft drinks and beer. Our Dialed In! Limited Edition we have on our floor was well received by everyone with lots of interest. The game held up well throughout the event and everyone loved the interactive camera, great ruleset and how smooth the game played.

We ran a small tournament on the game throughout the event.

Top Qualifier during the qualifying window as Steve Stone with 969,530. Steve was awarded a Dialed In! autographed translite and "Make Pinball Great Again" JJP Hat. What is so funny about Steve's one and only game on Dialed In! is that he didn't come to the launch party for the event but was just a patron that happened to come into our store while the event was going on. Steve told me prior to playing that he was looking for an electro-mechanical pinball while in our store and doesn't like "the newer busy games with all the ramps and flashing lights, etc". I told him to each their own ...but he should give Dialed In! a try as it's free to play and he could win some prizes. Steve ended up knocking it out of the park on his one and only game he played on Dialed In! It's funny how after one game of Dialed In! The somewhat standoff-ish Steve "who doesn't like newer games", walked away from Dialed In! with a smile on his face and saying to me "That was really fun".

Steve ended up leaving before the playoff's. So we ended up letting top qualifiers from position 2-5 play it out in one game to see who could get the highest score. 1st Place winner won an autographed Dialed In! translite & "Make Pinball Great Again" hat, while players finishing in 2nd, 3rd and 4th were awarded a Dialed In! T-shirt.

Winners of the tournament were:
1st Place - Some epic guy that likes Chick-Fil-A BBQ Sauce
2nd Place - Randy Donathan
3rd Place - Todd Carr
4th Place - Eric Murray

A great time was had by all. Everyone that I had talked to love playing Dialed In! They loved the creativeness and innovation of the game and that this is JJP's first non-wide body game. I think as more and more people get to experience and play Dialed In! they will see that this is a game worth owning.

Enjoy the pics!

Thanks for hosting this Craig! It was a great event. Had no expectation of winning anything and walked away with a shirt.
