    Hi EM Aficionados

    I'm curious how you keep track of high scores on your machines in your gameroom. I've seen old pepsi menu signs like this...

    ...that swapped the food name and price pairing with game names and high score. There's also the more typical chalkboard or white board method...

    ...but I'm wondering what sort of creative ways each of you have devised to display high scores in your gameroom.

    Thanks!

    Here are some responses I got when I asked the question...

    Cool! I swear I searched before posting this topic and didn't find yours. Ha-ha!

    Most of the suggestions I saw in your thread were your standard chalk boards and menu signs. I think I like yours the best! Nice touch with the score reel font! (Where does one download that, BTW?)

    Finally, when did you sell your Melody and why didn't you sell it to me? *LOL*

    Thanks for posting, Rob!

    I am running it on a 23" touchscreen with a Lenovo Ideacentre Stick.
    Ignore the scores. I am still setting it up.

    Thanks to spiroagnew for that thread and inspiration! You can see in that thread I stole his idea

    Here are some PDFs for the scoring digits that I made for mine. I believe I hacked up Peter's EM score reel decal file from http://www.pinballrebel.com/pinball/cards/

    I have a Coca-Cola sign above my games with high scores on them (and a fictional menu on the right, haha)...

    Yes, Peter's, aka inkochnito's, score reel font was used for my application.

    I was babysitting Drano's Melody for an extended run before re-stenciling the cab for him. Quite possibly my favorite EM of all time. I ended up running the score into the five digits on a monster game before tearing it apart for the re-paint. Even though the game has long departed the gameroom, I've left the big score on my scoreboard to this day to remind me that at least ONCE in my life, I could call myself a good pinball player.
