    Just cutting to the chase.......Munsters reveal? MMR? other stuff? I can block the time, just curious what pinheads are doing this year in regards to this event....thanks....

    #2 6 months ago

    Of course I'm going. Why wouldn't I? I always look forward to it. I can get there in 20 minutes unless traffic makes it 25 minutes.

    #3 6 months ago

    Been going since 2014. I'm there to see my nationwide pals and party.

    Hoping Munsters there...

    I think it's going to be a great show this year.

    Only time will tell of course, but I'll certainly be there to find out, and do whatever I can to help make it the best show ever!

    Absolute yes, not only are we going, we tripled in size, and we are bringing a lot of games. We have partnered with Stern to bring a trailer full of Stern games set to free play!

    I would like to add, Rob and Brigitt are investing the resources and making maximum effort to bring more to this show than ever! I have spoke with Nick in advertising, Emails with Brigitt, and Rob called me as well. I am confident this will be the best expo we have seen in years. Great seminars, Pinball Life open house, Stern tours, tournaments, games to play, vendors of all sorts and great deals! If there are any doubts, at least make it to this one and see for yourself.

    Hope to see you all there! Make sure to stop by and say hello!

    Why wouldn't you go?? My 29th show woo hoo!!

    #20 6 months ago

    I can't say I'm happy with what went down with the ownership of the show, but my wife and I will be there this year. If the show is a bust I have heard there are other things to do in Chicago, I guess they make pizza that is pretty good.

    My first expo was '99, I still count myself lucky that I got to see the WMS factory before it was shut down.

    #21 6 months ago

    I will not be attending this year unfortunately. It is looking like it is definitely going to be a great year!

    #22 6 months ago

    I've only been to the 2014 show, but had a lot of fun and met a lot of interesting people. The free play room was one of the coolest thing I've ever seen. Would be fun to go again sometime, but this year will not be the time. Have fun, all!

    Ok I missed this. Are you saying we can bring parts to your seminar for you to repair? lol If I drop off a complete game can you have it shopped and restored by morning since you have the room technically all night! Look forward to seeing the pinball yoda again.

    Yes, people are invited to bring pinball parts to share. I bring some, others can too.

    Chicago needs and expects a world class pinball show. Here's to hoping everything is on track. Personally, I have high expectations and do not plan on being let down.

    #32 6 months ago

    I wouldn't be caught dead going to Expo.

    But I'm still alive, so I'll be there for sure!

    #33 6 months ago

    Must admit..really enjoyed my time @ Twin Peaks the last time I was there (couple years back). Good Bourbon, food, and nice service (also easy on the eyes).

    Is there a PS group event (drinking or otherwise)? Would be fun to put some more faces to names....thanks...mark

    JJ from GameExchange organizes a meet-n-greet at TP on Friday night. Check the main Expo thread for details.

    I'm looking forward to Expo again this year. First time I'm not bringing machines for freeplay, but aside from that, hoping to have just as much fun as always.

    Funny, but JJ buying my shot of Macallan 18 every year is why I bought my Maiden LE from him. He's a great guy.

    #49 6 months ago

    I just spoke to my neighbor who wants to go with his kid. He checked the schedule and found a deal with Groupon, we both exercised it for thursday night $19.00 per ticket normally $30. Friday maybe $5.00 off.

    Cheers
