Grand Ole Gameroom Expo
Ready for more pinball in Nashville? We are back the weekend of November 10-12 at the Franklin Marriott Cool Springs. It was a great first year show and you can expect more games this time around. We will have a lot of the newest pins and of course the pinball tournament is back.

There will also be plenty of arcade games, air hockey, skeeball, over 60 game consoles from the Atari 2600 to the Nintendo Switch. The VR room is back. The tournaments on Smash Bros are back. This time we will have two age groups on Smash so the younger players won't get mixed in with the adults.

Giveaway:
We are also giving away a new Stern Aerosmith Pro Pinball Machine. You get one entry per arcade or pinball machine you bring out to the expo in addition to free passes. You can receive a max of 4 free passes and a max of 15 entries to win the Aerosmith pin for bringing machines. The hotel can accommodate a lot of games. We want to fill the place up. So load up your trailer and bring your games out.

Tickets:
Get your tickets online and book your hotel early.

Hope to see you there!

I uploaded some images from the 2016 show to my website and Facebook page. Go check them out.

Also remember to buy your tickets online before April 1st to get the early discount.

I had a blast last year. A lot of machines and very little crowd.

We drove four hours to be there and arrived at 8pm. I thought I would go down and look around. Ended up playing for close to 6 hours that night and killed my feet for the rest of the weekend. It was worth it though.

Also sign up early to bring your games. For each game you bring you receive an entry to win a new Aerosmith Pro.

Any t shirt designs?

#11 7 months ago

Great news. I hope this becomes an annual thing. It's awesome having a local show and Nashville is conveniently located for a lot of surrounding cities.

#12 7 months ago

Would love to come but bring games and keeping them there until 5pm is way to late for me to load up and hit the road back home.
Maybe I'll just drop in.

#13 7 months ago
Quoted from JoeHog:

Not yet, but the pin tournament will probably have a t-shirt designed and we may have one for the show this time around.

AS pro is a heck of a giveaway! I had a good time last year. Liked the late night hours and they worked for me when I came back from the downtown music strip.

Just a reminder if you are planning to bring games please fill out the form on our website so we can keep track. With the giveaway being an Aerosmith Pro I expect a lot of people to participate.

Also don't wait too late to book your hotel room. The hotel did sell out last year. Better to book early and cancel if your plans change then to wait and miss out.

Another quick update. I know a lot of people are planning to bring games to get in on the drawing for the Aerosmith Pro. Be sure you let me know you are bringing them though. Best way it so use the website to send me a message. https://GrandOleExpo.com/bring-a-game/

Pinball Tournament details will be announced soon.

Also Star Wars will be playable at the show. If stern announces another game before then I'll try to get that one there as well.

#17 5 months ago

Great incentive for sure! Looking forward to attending!

You may want to correct the image on your web site, you are showing the Aerosmith LE, not the pro.

Doh, yeah I'll update the image on the website.

#19 4 months ago

We will have a nice assortment of the new Star Wars pins to play at the expo. I think we are up to 5 so far. Plus a Batman 66, and a few Aerosmith pins, and it is still early. If you are looking to play new pins I think you will be happy this year.

Get ready for the 2nd annual IFPA tournament at the Grand Ole Gameroom Expo this year coming in November! We had a good turnout from the region for last year's event, and we expect an even better turnout this year. Last year's event went well with some great players and ran pretty smoothly for a first year event (and my first time running a larger IFPA event).
You're not likely to find a more laid back atmosphere in an Expo like you'll find here. If you know anyone that attended last year, they'll tell you that this one is all about having FUN!
Follow the link for all the deets!

Looking forward to it this year even though I worked my butt off last year keeping pins going!!

#22 67 days ago

We made the three hour drive from Birmingham last year and it was well worth it. Friday night we basically had the whole floor to ourselves! Lots of good places to eat nearby. The hotel is really nice and the show and tournament were top notch. We hope to have more people make the trip from B'ham this year and we will be bringing at least one game(Tales From The Crypt).

#23 64 days ago

Show should be fun this year, I'll be bringing some games and have a booth for the plating and powder stuff. Come hang out!

#24 62 days ago

Hey guys, ColorDMD is offering $50 off on displays ordered and installed in games you bring to the expo. The displays would be picked up at the show and installed there. A display card would be placed on the machine promoting ColorDMD. If you plan to bring a game to the show and want to take advantage on this offer PM me and I will give you the details. Thanks!

It might be worth bringing some broke down games and have Matt fix them all weekend.

I'm bringing a good part of the tournament bank from my lineup of machines so hopefully I'll be able to service them more readily, but yeah, machines going down is the recurring nightmare that causes me to be bolt upright from my slumber.

Good luck to us.

Maybe I could charge admission!

RIGHT!!! I'll try not to bolt a head down on a power cord this year..... Cough Cough Banzai Run! I'm bringing plenty of tools and electronic components so if you need anything just holler.

Hey guys, the expo is almost here. It's less than four weeks away! Be sure to book your hotel in the next couple of days. The room block closes Oct 19th. After that the remaining rooms will be opened back up to the public. The hotel did sell out last year so don't wait.

Hope to see you there!

Any chance you will have JJP's POTC at the show?

#30 36 days ago

Are there Panel Discussions and guests at this show?

#31 35 days ago
Quoted from statsdoc:

Nope, I tried, but the games have to be at a different show the day after mine is over. Logistics don't work out.

#32 35 days ago

Sooooo glad this thread got bumped...This is a killer deal for the hotel rate. Wife and I go twice a year to Nashville and kick it on the strip. We're booked...kicking it downtown Friday night...out to Liepers Fork (Puckettes) and downtown Franklin for Saturday day, hit the arcade Saturday late afternoon for a bit...dinner out Music Row then back to the hotel for some pinball Late evening,,,,,man I'm STOKED! See you dudes then! Hope to play some sweet machines,,,,giddy up!

#33 35 days ago

Booked and going again. Had a great time last year!

#34 35 days ago
Quoted from hailrazer:

#36 35 days ago

We will definitely be there! In some ways this was my favorite of the 4 shows we went to last year... because the hotel is so nice and the show is so laid back... last year the wife forgot her ID so going to the clubs on the strip was out... this year we hope to make up for that!

#37 33 days ago

I'll be brining a Gottlieb Circus and a Tee'd Off for the free play area and they will be for sale or trade.

#38 33 days ago
Quoted from hailrazer:

Yes, panels will be running on Saturday. I haven't posted the schedule yet.

Also a general note that the hotel block is now closed. If you still want a room you can call and ask, but not sure they will give you the block rate. Doesn't hurt to try though.

#39 32 days ago

FYI, I've been getting David's TFTC shopped out and looking nice and it will be in the free play area and will also be for sale.

I would think between Larry and or myself we could get one but its also IAPPA show time.

Larry stated yesterday in the other Nashville post that JJPOTC will NOT be at this show because of the two FL shows. What are the chances of you getting one to the Nashville show?

GOTG coming to the show?

#44 22 days ago
Quoted from pinnyheadhead:

Not a chance. I heard from a distributor they're most likely shipping in 3rd week of Nov.

#45 21 days ago
Quoted from LOTR_breath:

That is what I figured. I am still going to have a blast.

#46 21 days ago

Sorry guys no POTC. Also no GOTG. Still trying to get Houdini there but was told its a 50/50 chance at this point. I'll know more in a few days.

I will have 11 New Sterns for folks to play. These are the show games that were for folks to take home on Sunday. I do have many other Stern titles in stock that I can bring NIB and one Dialed IN in stock that I can bring. But only in a deal is made before the show. No room to bring them back if not sold.

#47 21 days ago

Should have a bunch of stuff there, TSPP, TAF, BoP, several other pins, a bunch of arcades too. Looking forward to it!

#48 21 days ago

I'll be there representing Pinball Undesirables along with my cohost/player. Feel free to make fun of me if you see me and offer me trades.

I will be there, sure you don't have a way to take the Baywatch back with you if I brought it? All kidding aside at least I can meet you in person even though I could not get the pin to you in Kentucky, glad you got one
