    Planning to hit it up on Friday. Any tips or suggestions on what to play or see?

    the NPM right? that place is pretty kick ass, i was there last spring. make sure you show up before they open (2pm) otherwise you'll kick yourself if you don't. they close the doors promptly at closing, no lagging around. I don't know if they offer the "$20 free play" on the day you'll be there, but if they do, it's more than worth it.

    if a tour is available, TAKE IT. there are 750+ games in there and the guy can tell you about everyone of them. it's amazing. i would suggest that if you don't live within driving distance to spend your time with the older games, you just don't see them anymore and the list he has is phenomenal.

    also, eat before you go. you don't want to have to take a food break...

    Well, I'll only be there later in the day as I have to attend classes (business trip) during the day. I'll do my best to check things out and take pictures.

    Are you sure you are talking about the same place? I thought it just opened in December:

    Uhh, he's definitely talking about the wrong place. I hit up the dc museum every few weeks.

    The highlights are big bang bar, and kingpin.

    I think he has every lawlor game but NGG.

    Other standouts. STTNG, CFTBL, IJ, RFM, stargate, GNR

    When I went he was just (still?) doing private tours, I wasn't aware that there was a shop open in GT nor was there then that I know of. I'm talking about the big, big, space. When I looked at the site online earlier I just assumed that he opened the warehouse/storage in MD up. I see that is not the case
