    Loved playing them both and THANKS for bringing them. VERY nice games and both played great. Nicest play WW I have seen in a LONG while. again... THANKS!!!!

    #14 7 years ago

    Pugsly, I played a few games on your WW and your NGG, both very nice games, thanks very much for bringing them. NGG was a bit bright for me, but I seem to be "LED sensitive" I guess. Both games played great though, looked to have constant traffic.

    Sorry missed you yesterday Gexchange.

    Pugsley really sorry I missed meeting you. Would have been cool to touch base and talk nucore. I played your WW and it played really nice. Just missed putting a high score on it. My first ball I had 15M then just crapped out. Played the WW right behind yours and did get a high score. No offense to Jason (owner of other WW directly behind yours) but yours played tighter and looked a bit better. I'm not a great pin player but I was in a zone on WW for some reason yesterday. Made me want to buy one but not at price for the one for sale. Nice game, great seller, just high price for my taste.

    Talk to the artist of Predator if he is still there. Very cool idea for the playfield artwork.

    Will do.. PS I have an expense account I need to use up! so grab me if you see me and I would like to buy you a drink.

    #25 7 years ago

    The predator artist is a great guy. He spoke to my 12 y/o son for a half hour about art and tools, even dug out his portfolio for him. He gave me the full rundown on its playfield. Nice to see artwork again instead of photoshop.

    I owe you a few drinks for helping make the show happen! I will find you.. What do you drink?

    #27 7 years ago

    #28 7 years ago

    I would guess 150-200 pins, I can try and shoot a video from my phone. I have not played it yet.. Anyone else have some requests?

    #33 7 years ago

    Damn, wish i was there. That looks like the place to be for sure.

    Ha, I am here but slept the afternoon away. An emergency situation at home kept me up all night Funny how one thing can ruin the whole weekend.

    I barely made it back into the vendor hall in time to shut my booth down, oops!

    Bud started to stick up in my NGG but I was able to fix it right before the hall closed at 5. Now it back up and running again for the remainder of the expo.

    #42 7 years ago

    Just got back - all pinned out. This was our first show - had a great time! My son had the following people sign his lanyard...

    Jersey Jack
    Gary Stern
    JPop
    Gomez
    Ritchie Brothers
    Mike Gottlieb
    Yossi

    ....and he got a picture taken with his idol!

    http://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/579248_10151295457695362_840127231_n.jpg

    Truly had a blast. Only compliant (and this is minor), is that a LOT of games were turned off...and by Saturday at noon - only a handfull were left. Wish the owners would see that the games are up and running as much as possible. I"ll probably bring one next year.

    #43 7 years ago

    One more Picture.. So I had a early flight out of Midway so I left the hotel at 6:30 am.. When I leave my room I hear someone snoring loud.. I think wow I can hear someone in there room Snoring. Then I exit my room and find some one Laying in the hall out side room 832 PASSED out! I rolled past him with two suit cases and he didnt even stir... Someone had a bit to much Pinball last night!

    Anyone here?

    #44 7 years ago

    OMG that is a classic Gex!!

    Ok just like we try to pick out pins in the movies. Who can guess the pinhead?

    #45 7 years ago

    OK, I confess. It was me. I pounded a few too many Jagers and never quite made it to my room.

    #46 7 years ago

    Saturday was a little disappointing. The free play floor was pretty baron and a lot of machines were turned off. I havent been to the expo in 2 years because of work, but this time around I had to wait behind some one for almost every machine I wanted to play which was not the case 2 years ago. I guess this hobby is growing.

    I thought the exhibit hall was WAY cooler then it was 2 years ago though. Actual machines you could play, machines in development, very cool stuff. Stern went all out too...dunno if thats the case the last 2 years.

    Still had a good time.

    Were you guys on the Joust machine for what seemed like forever? I think you were the guy and kid I was waiting on to play?

    #48 7 years ago

    Sounds like a really fun show, I have to make it next year. Did JPOP have a booth or anything ?

    Was it really you? if so you were in the room next to me... Well I guess the door way for the room next to me =)

    Quoted from Gexchange:

    No. Seeing as how I live 10 minutes from the hotel, it wouldn't make a lot of sense for me to stay there.
