The first one was such a good time, unfortunately I don't think I'll be able to make this one.

Quoted from cjmjmm2006:

No worries. There will be others I'm sure. We will be continually building up the location. I assume there will be greater than 40 pins by year end. Also a huge surprise incoming that I cannot wait to announce.

Wow, 40 pins, that's awesome! Good thing you have a Houdini, because I want to see the magic trick to them all in there, LOL!! Can't wait to hear what yinz got coming next!

WOW, I haven't been on the thread in awhile and see I missed some things! Aliens and the Big Lebowski, you got to be kidding me, are they in?

Quoted from chrisb:

Mata Hari, Batman 66 Premium, Star Trek Pro, and Spiderman Vault are here now. Black Knight arrived less than two minutes ago and is still in the box. I'll get it set up soon. Congo is also supposed to arrive today. I heard that Oktoberfest and Alice Cooper are both arriving next week.
Sadly, Houdini, Flintstones, Elvira, Champion Pub, Twilight Zone, and White Water are gone. It was painful to see them go, but the new arrivals are beyond amazing and the refresh on the collection is welcome. Thanks so much to cjmjmm2006 much appreciation.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to an event at the brewery tomorrow, Saturday 4/13, all pins will be turned off and not playable until Sunday morning.

Wow, some great games. Hopefully I can get there soon, my schedule has been pretty crazy as of late. Definitely want to see if the hype around Black Knight is real!

Quoted from chrisb:

I've always made it one event ticket per game at the brewery for free play nights, so usually 40-50 tickets sold. I set the limit to 60 tickets for Replay week even though we'll have close to 70 games.

Close to 70 pins, holy s@%!. Cant wait to see where you're putting them all! This is going to be a fun week

This game arrived today. It is in absolutely pristine condition. It might be as wide as two regular pins.[quoted image]

Quoted from cjmjmm2006:

I guess I need to start selling games. Everyone keeps telling me I have too many. LoL

That would be nice, it would save me a heck of a lot of driving. I have to drive to Missouri to pick up a Flight 2000.

Quoted from cjmjmm2006:

Well I can start to answer but Joe knows me well. Haha. Truth is chrisb and I are great friends and I route games in 4 states. Pinball is a small portion of what I do on a daily basis but Helicon is certainly a passion of mine. We don't really sell games. I guess I shouldn't joke about that. We try to often rotate games to keep interest in the games and Brewery very high. It's really usually around 40ish games but we wanted to do something special for the folks visiting for replay. I really have no reason to have all those wonkas there. Trust me my other customers are on my back about their machines and I will get them there sometime next week.
We have pinball machines all over 4 states and I couldn't do it without all the support of the great community. Everyone chiming in, thanks for the kind words. We appreciate everyone stopping in and checking out our version of pinball brewery.

I know I'm not the only one who appreciates all the hard work and dedication you and Chris B do to make sure that anyone who comes there has a great time no matter why they are there. Can't wait to see everyone tomorrow!

It takes all types. I am glad to see that you will be attending. I will be there for some time every day. Hope you can spend some time chatting and having a beer with me Dan.

No doubt about it!
