Quoted from ktownhero:

Man I was just visiting family right in Robinson -- I wanted to stop by but couldn't make the time. I'm in town a few times a year, I look forward to seeing your collection!

Bummer. Hope to see you here. I am sure you will be impressed with the games at Helicon. It's a top notch collection and Chrisb is a class act. Let us know when you are going to stop out. I always like to meet our customers especially pinsiders! Cheers.

Tomorrow I am taking some of our employees along with some special guests to Avengers End Game. We are stopping at Helicon. I will be dressed up as Doctor Strange. See you there.

OMG, ChrisB, that picture is a riot. All you need is to dye your hair and beard white and you're there. Great owners of a great establishment. Hope to make it back to Helicon in two weeks when I'm in the city for work.

Hey thanks Joe! I have spent a lot of time in Oktoberfest tents in Munich and was pretty excited for this game. Will be good to see you again lots of new games since you were here last.

Cheers!

I am not. Wish I had the time. The local fan club for my favorite football team, Bayern Munich, meets there to watch all of the games but I have yet to make it out...

I think it's a big deal to join. Like you need to know people, get vetted, kind of a thing.

Quoted from wesman:

Yes and no .... you need to know a member that will vouch for you and then you go to the initiation meeting and that's the gist of it! I joined for the beer selection alone but came to find that the events they hold and food they have is really good. Basically $10 a month to be a member and anything you do for the club is volunteer basis.

OK apologies for sidetracking the thread .... back to Helicon!

All good information on there. They may need some pins!

A lot of visitors today. Again I'll be there around 7 with the Starport Crew aka Spider Girl, Black Widow, The Wasp and Dr. Strange.

#521 8 months ago

Great visit for all our contest winners and staff at Helicon Brewing. Oktoberfest was a hit amongst all our guests.

Also, good to see you again Bobby. It's always a pleasure to see you and your wife at the brewery. Thanks for the support!

Thanks! Not a Facebook guy so much appreciated
Will def drop by if I can. I might even try to stop by tonight to get some Alice Cooper action. I'm really considering buying that game but need a little more time. It totally caught me off guard.

Has Wonka, or anything new since Oktoberfest and ACNC arrived, landed at Helicon, yet?

What are you talking about?? Chris mentioned a few specific games would be there soon - just trying to plan my trip over there. Explain to me, what's wrong with asking?

#534 8 months ago

Hi Guys! I've been insanely busy. Games are shipping to us today but they are not Wonka's yet. Hopefully those will arrive soon. Along with Black Knight SOR LE also arriving soon.

CCR 2 player head to head is incoming first. Also will be switching out some classics for another small refresher.

Wonka's not on the line yet so if he had one that would be quite the accomplishment. All kidding aside just go and don't wait, the collection is insane and the beer is incredible.

Might be insane, ya never know. Thanks for the kind words Eric! We are glad you are enjoying the collection of games. More to come...

Doesn't need to be on the line - I think he can get things that commoners like us cannot. And I've been there a lot lately. It's just not close to me at all and it's difficult to schedule, especially with having three kids on three different baseball teams. And you're right about the beer - that double IPA that was fantastic! Hope it comes back.

Soccer, baseball, dance all incoming for my kids so I certainly feel your pain timewise. I appreciate you stopping in and supporting the location. As far as the double IPA, I'll ask Chrisb and report back. Bring the kids out sometime. I have my girls there a lot. They love Pinball!!

Cheers!

This would be pretty sweet! I'd also love maybe a TOTAN, CV or TOM.

Also on my list of desired games I don't own.....the Hobbit and WOZ.

Looking forward to Monday!!

All of those games are certainly in our catalog. These games will absolutely filter through Helicon at some juncture. I'll keep everyone up to date on the exchanges at Helicon!

Thanks for your support. See you Monday!

Bsd is a great addition and that Congo that recently came in is pine of the nicest I've seen.

I'm going to try and stop by this weekend. Monday is a no go unfortunately due to work.

Doesn't get better than this place. Awaiting the return of your best beer imo (Ras weat ale). Double IPA is my go to now

Raspberry wheat is on tap. Dracula will be delivered hopefully this evening. Thanks for the kind words Delt. I honestly do have one Congo that is nicer than that one. =)

Working on another Congo now.

Bram Stoker's Dracula has been added to the Helicon line up! Check it out for Mother's Day or our Free Play Event this Monday. There are a handful of tickets available for this event so if you are considering it, I will guarantee it will be sold out.

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom who flip the silver ball!
