    Wanted to see how much interest there would be? Maybe Saturday 12-4

    #2 50 days ago

    For those that are ignorant, what is Pinball Olympics?

    And I guess by playing in it, I could take myself off of this? https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/who-do-i-not-know-in-chicago-area

    #4 50 days ago

    I watched like 45 seconds- that's all I needed. I'm in

    #5 50 days ago

    Is this at expo or someone’s house?

    Quoted from Coz:

    Is this at expo or someone’s house?

    It would be at my house, 40 mins from expo

    That video is from my house as well

    #7 50 days ago

    I'd sure like to attend, either Sat of expo or 12/4.

    This will cost some money for entry, just not sure how much yet

    #26 49 days ago

    I want in!!

    #27 49 days ago
    Quoted from bangerjay:

    I will split my 13 cents with you. But I'm keeping the nickel.

    #29 49 days ago

    I’m in.

    I’ve seen your house, I know you have money

    #31 49 days ago

    Sounds and looks like a blast! Some of those I’ve scene at pinball life

    Unfortunately they’re out of room over there this year, so I’m doing this

    Charge a fuckton to cover your building expenses, olympic games, and tacos. Most people have no idea how much you've invested in all this. Cheapskates who don't appreciate it can hang out at Expo.

    I’m in for that. Please make my invoice out to Yancy@goodguy.com. Lol. You really should charge for this rather unique even and effort. Looking at the videos your creativity is something to see.

    #35 48 days ago

    Dang it !!! not attending Expo again this year & have been anxiously awaiting another Olympics! best Pinball event I have ever attended!! Enjoy everybody it should be right up there with PBL open house as the must do events at this years expo

    I would easily pay a nice entry fee/donation to support my attendance!
    I agree that most have zero idea how special this is, how much time/effort/energy you have put in, and how lucky we all are to even get an invite.

    I have a feeling most won't complain about any sort of fee

    #37 48 days ago

    I'm in for taco guy.

    Quoted from Scribble:

    Taco guy is [fire emoji]

    #39 48 days ago

    Pinball Olympics is literally insane and whatever the cost ends up being we all have paid more for less.

    #40 48 days ago

    No way I could handle that music , had to mute the video .

    Gimme a starting number

    #42 48 days ago
    Quoted from bangerjay:

    Gimme a starting number

    $600 per person. Seriously though I would pay literally whatever you think is fair for how awesome this is.
    Also I'm down for this unless I somehow survive to day 2 of expo tourney and then I will be a sad panda. Any way for it to be a bit later in the day to avoid that? I'm not sure how long into Saturday the playoffs will go though...

    #43 48 days ago
    Quoted from bangerjay:

    Gimme a starting number

    $50 with food/tournament included. Price goes up $1 each day after ticket sales start.

    How's that? Too cheap?

    #44 48 days ago

    $50 for food and tourney is my suggestion.

    BYOB

    #45 48 days ago

    I also like the idea of price goes up each day. Set a limit for number of people is likely a good idea also?

    Quoted from Whysnow:

    What about 2 tournament waves, once your tourney is done GTFO. Taco party between events.

    BYOB is a good idea. Have water and soda.

    Quoted from CraigC:

    I don’t think 4 hours is long enough for 2 waves (might over complicate things also as far as score entry and such ) Even with 4 hours most people in the tourney will not have time for every game in the Olympic event .
    $40- $50 is fair for event and food .

    #48 48 days ago

    I was thinking $50 too even before everyone else said that. Great minds think alike.

    ...or even $100, is that insane? Would definitely limit attendance to a manageable number. Call it a construction fundraiser? Anyone who's seen your new building knows you basically built a house for this.

    #49 48 days ago

    I'm thinkin $11.27. Per carload.
