    Indeed ! It will be good to see you again my friend!!

    Got our room, weekend passes and media passes. Can't wait!

    #6 6 months ago

    I can bring a very good but not perfect Surf Champ backglass for $150. Colors are excellent. A few minor scuffs, and some cracks in the paint just starting in a few of the letters. Not triple-thicked or coated yet. Pics at this link - https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=17M8g56hNQ3pz6R2irjtuHmjpbFYDKX4Q ... color variation due to some taken with flash, some without. I set it on a blue pad in the pics to help show the flaws so there are no surprises.

    This looks awesome. I just moved down this way. Where is this event held? Is there a hotel with rooms blocked?

    #8 6 months ago

    Just wish it was at a Marriott property that takes my Marriott points. I'm staying up the street.

    Great show and big tournament, so don't miss it.

    Here is the hotel info from the FPF site:

    #10 6 months ago

    Damn. That's right down the street!

    #11 6 months ago

    I will be there!

    #12 6 months ago

    Someone should add an event for ffp here on Pinside as that’s free advertising

    https://pinside.com/pinball/events

    #13 6 months ago

    I’m coming for the tournament

    #14 6 months ago

    Next year I plan on attending. Mark it down.

    #15 6 months ago

    Going once again this year. Right down the street for me!

    #16 6 months ago

    I’ll be there. Made hotel reservations for Saturday night. Should be fun!

    #17 6 months ago

    I'll be there with my daughter

    #18 6 months ago

    Can't wait!

    #19 6 months ago

    I'll be there. Last year I missed the Pinside gathering because a new thread was started at the last minute with time and place. Please post information in this thread to make it easy to find. The people who run the show basically are not on pinside, so they were no help when I asked them.

    I look forward to the Pre-war playground. I love those old games and Jeff is the man! Word was there is going to be some sort of tournament in that area too.

    The show hotel is really nice. I suggest staying there if at all possible. Hotels around the area will not save you much money and it is so much easier to just head to the room and not have to park and walk...

    What floor are the rooms located? Last time I went, saw many that were located in single story construction.

    #26 6 months ago

    Most of the rooms are above the first floor.

    Last year I had a villa room. A lot of those are on the first floor in the outer buildings. They are awesome. Two full bedrooms and bathrooms with a living room and full kitchen. The problem is this year they jacked up the show price on the villas, so I switched to a regular suite. Fortunately I have less people with me this year!

    Thanks, that what I want. May have to change my reservation.

    I have an extremely nice Frankenstein (color DMD, undercab lighting synced to flashers, Cliffys, warm LEDS etc) and a Judge Dredd (LEDS, cliffy, sniper tower mod, dead world mod, topper) that I could bring for sale or trade if any interest. Mostly looking for horror or sci-fi themed pins (Tales from the Crypt, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Bride of Pinbot, Elvira and the Party Animals, Ghostbusters Premium (2 for 1), Sorcerer, Bad Cats, Dungeons and Dragons) are my current wish list.

    #30 6 months ago

    In addition to the Surf Champ backglass ($150 obo), I also found a few other random things in my stash I could bring to FPF. See pics at https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=17M8g56hNQ3pz6R2irjtuHmjpbFYDKX4Q

    - Big Guns faded translite (I'd acquired a fresher one when I had the game) - make offer
    - Big Guns yellowed King's Chamber plastic 31-1006A-557-1 (I'd replaced it with a comparable new piece of acrylic sheet) - make offer
    - Coin box with plastic bins but no top, for Bally EMs 1972-1976 (I believe this was from my Sky Kings I used to have) - $25

    #31 6 months ago

    I'm in! See you there!

    #32 6 months ago

    Arrived yesterday, nice place to stay for a week !

    #34 6 months ago

    Can only make it Saturday but love going! Looking forward to this year. Can bring my HUO DI SE for trade for TNA, or some combo of cash/Bad Cats/Space Shuttle. Or $6,500.00.

    #35 6 months ago

    thinking about playing my first tournament here. Whats the deal with paying more money for more entries? How does that work?

    #36 6 months ago
    Quoted from edict_of_worms:

    Whats the deal with paying more money for more entries? How does that work?

    For info on this and other tournaments, start at the IFPA calendar. www.ifpapinball.com

    Briefly -
    This is a large Herb style tournament AKA pump and dump. You have unlimited opportunity to buy chances to put up a good score on each pin in the tournament and you get qualifying points based on your best scores compared to the other players. When qualifying is over, the players with most points play against each other in 4 player games in the finals to determine the winner. This tournament is on the Stern Pro Tour, so there will be a lot of good players there.

    Give it a try. Playing in large tournaments and local tournaments is lot of fun, and you can track your standings on the IFPA page.

    Tickets are booked for all 3 days! Do you guys go to the after party? Is it actually cool / worth going?

    #38 6 months ago
    Quoted from V_piscopo:

    Do you guys go to the after party? Is it actually cool / worth going?

    I enjoy the afterparty because they put the lights lower (more pleasant glow from the machines!) and there is generally little wait for most machines.
    I don't enjoy the afterparty because the music is ridiculously loud and generally atrocious (IMO). I bring earplugs, which helps greatly.

    #39 6 months ago

    I see. So if I buy 10 entries, I get to play 10 times, and only my best score of those 10 will be my submission?

    Quoted from edict_of_worms:

    Yup, your best score on each pin is saved, and the best of those go toward your total. Example - 6pins in classics and the scores from your 4 best pins go toward your total. You can see the data on the tournament web page as you go. (queue, scores, standings)

    Quoted from zaza:

    Arrived yesterday, nice place to stay for a week ![quoted image]

    Hope you’ve enjoyed the weather. It’s been a great week!

    #42 6 months ago

    Absolutely,
    The weather has been perfect besides a few colder days when we were in Beamont TX and a rainy day when driving to Houston. But since we're back in Florida the weather is perfect. This week we did 2 Disneyparks and stayed at the pool being lazy : )
    Now we are ready for the weekend 'freeplay' !

    edit:
    the weather at the moment @home in the Netherlands is ~ 37°F min to 48°F max : )

    #43 6 months ago

    Great start for the weekend with the pinside meeting.
    Big thanks to gexchange for the invitation !

    #45 6 months ago

    The show has been great this year. The new owners of LSOG brought a ton of newer games this year. Friday evening after IAAPA they loaded in 27 more Stern, JJP and Chicago Gaming machines!

    The pre-war playground and tournament area have been buzzing all weekend too.

    Glad you saw the pinside badge with my name, it was a pleasure to meet you and of course others. Great to see pinsiders in real life and have a chat and a drink.
    Thanks !,
    Sascha

    Quoted from John_I:

    I know. I left Friday night at 8pm thinking there are barely any pins here. It was a pleasant surprise to arrive today and see many of the newer pins. The pre war playground was sweet. Glad to see so many people going in there, and having fun. I had a lot of fun in there.

    #48 6 months ago

    This show was the best ever HANDS DOWN. Thanks to all the volunteers that put it all together. There were a few lines to play the newer pinballs on Saturday and I thought to myself "how cool is that". People are standing in line to play pinball. Several other pinhead overheard my thoughts.

    Can't wait till next year.

    Hey ZAZA. You helped me some time ago with issues with my WPC CPU board on Popeye. I was at Free Play on Saturday. Would have been nice to have met you!

    Yes, LSOG nailed it, with a "TONS" of newer pinballs, inc. the new to be released MMRr2...which I had to wait a while to get a game on.
    Congrats to Marshall, David for a great showing!
