Most of the time, it is me and my 50-year old + friends playing my games.

This past weekend I brought my Sing Along to a large youth event at my church and the teens loved it. Was played almost non-stop for 2-days. Left it up there and came to church on Sunday to find a group of younger kids huddled around the game looking mesmerized.

Great to see! I am going to include a 'Pinball Party' with one of my games as a silent auction item at our fundraising dinner next weekend.

I think most kids would love to play pinball if only given the chance.

My 10 nieces & nephews love playing EM's. The only issue I had was a 3year old who
Liked grabbing keys ... I've since added game specific keychains for each game

Need to teach them to slap a quarter on the glass to wait their turn...

Indeed. Good to see a new generation learning to love the Silverball.

Very nice! That photo is so perfect, it looks like a commercial!
I've been doing a thing with my church for about a year now and that is when I finish a game that I don't have room for, I put it in the church where the teens gather and they store it there. It normally stays there for about a month and then I rotate another one in. Cheaper than paying for storage!

The kids really love it and the minister does also!

They are in the early stages of remodeling our youth room. I had that same thought as a plan for when they finish.

Or if I can find a relatively inexpensive multi-player game (all my games are single players), I might just get that, fix it up and give it to the youth program. Might be better if they have a game they can compete on as there is almost always a group of kids there.

That is really cool that you did that. Good choice of game. I bet the kids really liked making the sequential kick-out holes operate.

I think you should just open an arcade in the area and grab all their lunch money!
