    Quoted from bobukcat:

    That is one very nice Getaway, wonderfully lit for a dark show and buttery smooth!

    Thanks man! First time bringing it to a show. Picked it up over the last year and did a lot of repairs, cleaning and upgrading. It’s quickly become a family favorite. Fire Power is my most recent project. Got it working a few months ago.

    Hit us up if you want to bring games to Pincinnati. Your games play great!

    #206 84 days ago

    That Funhouse is sick! And the Getaway and Firepower near it were pretty sweet. Never understood the intrigue with Firepower until tonight playing that fine tuned machine.

    Thanks man. It’s fun making these games pop and sorta new again, and even more fun getting other folks to try ‘em out and get impressions.

    Quoted from goingincirclez:

    Well sometimes you can't keep a good van down, so everything made it intact! And now because I'm a dumbass that jinxed it, come play Bad Cats and give my playfield-painting girls their props before the gods say otherwise and strike me. Lots of great stuff here already!
    [quoted image]
    [quoted image]

    Badcats looked and played great! I think i might have spied your old Pinbot with the speaker grill at Recbar as well.

    #209 84 days ago

    Thanks! Seafood wheel worked off the spindle last night but I got that fixed before open today. Milk target 3 ipto is being wonky and is hard to access, but is comping for now.

    The fun house fog and bell is great, and that Firepower makes me realize I need to tweak my own. Haven't been able to try the getaway yet but I'm sure it's as awesome as it's neighbors.

    Kids keep going back to TNA, no complaints from me... As a team we finally had Reactor 3 critical lol

    Oh and yes that's my old PinBot... Couldn't have picked a better group of guys to sell it to, and we get to visit it also

    #210 84 days ago

    Had fun with my family at the show last night. Had a great time on the fantastic Getaway. My only criticism of the show this year is that the games' volumes were turned down very low on almost all the games. I had my ear next to the Beatles speaker at the Marco booth and still couldn't hear the music over the flippers. Otherwise, a great show. Thanks to all who brought games.

    Quoted from rlbohon3:

    Great show so far tonight! Be sure to check out my buddy’s Fun House. Definitely equipped with a few unexpected extras. Bad Cats played awesome. Nice, smooth playing game. Loving Circus Voltaire too. Met a nice guy who played my Getaway, scored 450 million tonight on his first game in over 20 years. FP and TMNT getting some good play too. Lots of fun overall.

    I played your Getaway and it was a Beaut!

    #213 83 days ago

    Our guys just finished unloading. Long but awesome weekend. Good to meet some new people and see all the old buddies. See everyone soon!

    #214 83 days ago

    Ahhh... finally home, seven games in tow. Definitely a fun but exhausting weekend. Totally worth it. Met lots of nice folks.

    #215 83 days ago

    That Firepower was great. Made me sorry i sold mine. Gonna have to find another!

    #217 83 days ago

    Great weekend, folks! Wonderful showing of pins this year. Really enjoyed Getaway, Whitewater, Gryszzz's ACDC, MBr, AFMr, Oktoberfest, Beatles, and many others. Shout out to Antz for the amazing hospitality he showed us Friday night at Zanzabar!!! What a great guy! Lost a few bucks to Trent and Deborah on Saturday, but had a blast playing against them. Great tourney at RecBar Saturday night. Oh, what a late night it was. Still can't believe Gryszzz took 3rd place in the tourney after muttering several times, "F#@k your stupid tournament!" Exhausting weekend, but well worth it. Great to see many friends and make some new ones. Thanks to everyone that brought machines for us to enjoy! This was a great show to attend, and definitely one to return to again next year. Cheers, silverballers!

    #218 83 days ago

    Congrats to jjsmooth on winning the Saturday night Recbar tournament. It was a true test of the liver and he outlasted some extremely intoxicated people. Haha

    Tons of fun as always! Let’s do it again next year!

    #219 83 days ago

    Oh man... exhausted as I was, on the way home I was still in disbelief: how could it be over already? Nooooo!

    What can I say without rambling on? Always such an awesome time. Finally re-met the Walking GRYSZZZ and ViolinSteve... Bounced around troubleshooting and fixing machines for folks... embarrassed myself on the drum game... played Primus and TNA over and over and over... Played / got stoned by (???) Polybius...

    Whomever had the brilliant idea to move my Williams Expo EM next to TNA: I laughed when I walked in and saw that: "WTF, how is that even fair hahaha???" But folks must have appreciated it; I'm pretty tickled to win "Best EM" since there was no competing with that Funhouse ha ha. Bill and the back-corner guys had some sweet machines! Still, my kids' work was featured on the local news (warning I have a voice for print and face for radio): https://www.wlky.com/article/arcade-expo-gives-parents-kids-a-chance-to-bond-over-classic-games/26610282

    Ah but there are too many other games and faces and people and highlights to list. I'll just conclude that my personal highlight was, despite my aching feet and fat ass, putting my smack-talking 14yo daughter back in her place on DDR

    BIG THANKS to Corey and Joe and Wayne and the rest of the crew. Bring on LAX 2020!

    #220 83 days ago

    Good job on the interview. I like how the article says only dozens attended

    #221 83 days ago

    That Getaway mentioned above was a joy to play. I got to try it a couple of times along with the Bugs Bunny next to it - I wanted to play the TMNT also but it seemed always occupied - and it played beautifully. Thanks to everybody who brought games. I’m partial to Premier system 3 dmds (yes, I’m the one) and the recbar guys had a nice wipeout there among others - I understand the recbar guys had 70 machines there which was quite the effort to say the least. I also played that lovely space shuttle and a bunch of other fun stuff. But in general thanks to everyone who took the trouble to bring games. It made for a fun time and the show seemed very well attended which was nice to see. Kudos to all.

    #222 83 days ago

    Opening quote of that story was the best: "Dozens of people attended this year's Louisville Arcade Expo" Yeah, dozens...
    Hundreds of dozens....

    I owe my newfound pinball prowess to a new approach I'm taking. Its a multi pronged effort.
    A) - Absolutely no physical activity before the contest
    B) - Plenty of performance enhancing drugs
    C) - Gotta stay hydrated before and especially during contest for maximum benefit (Coors).
    I think the results speak for themselves.
    Great show, fun tournament.

    #225 83 days ago

    I didn't get to come until a couple hours before close on Sunday.

    Maybe consider discounting tickets during that time?

    It wasn't fun having to dodge (and keep my daughter from getting run over by) all the people taking games out early.

    Otherwise there was still a fun lineup of games available until the end. I just wish I had been able to be there longer.

    Hopefully next year I have the energy to bring a game again, like I did in the years before having a kid...

    Started with the highest score on Oktoberfest all weekend and ended with a very strong score on Jackbot. Well done.

    More proof that my methods work..
    Thx.

    #228 83 days ago

    Anyone end up with an extra CGC show game that is for sale. Would like to take advantage of that promotion but live way too far away to drive to Louisville or Texas.

    There was an unsold AFMR SE sitting there for $7K at the end of the show, it's a good thing I didn't have a way to haul it and my game back or I probably would have bought it. Talk to zmeny at Flip N Out to see if it is still available, what shipping would cost, etc.

    Thanks again to everyone that came to the Flip N Out Pinball booth and chatted with me and the team. Great showing for us, fun to hang out with you all, and honored to continue the tradition of providing pinball machines and support to the Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, and Tennessee areas!

    Sunday is already a discounted ticket due to it being the last day and shorter hours. We still try to give a good value and I think most would agree that Sunday's game count was way higher than previous years.

    We strongly ask all collectors to leave their games at the show until it closes, however the snow storm was making this tough for some. They had 6+ hour drives ahead of them, in the weather and needed to leave earlier than they had planned too. We try to be reasonable while still having 90%+ of the games available that Friday had.

    Please reach out to me if you'd like to make suggestions, we'd love to hear them!

    #233 82 days ago

    This year was indeed much better than previous (and especially 2018) in terms of Sunday's playable count. Several folks I knew with long drives ahead and multiple games stayed to the very the end. And the majority of the machines were still functional... even most of those that weren't at least had honest attempts to fix them or were on/off as able through the weekend. All much improved from previous years IMO. Keep up the good work.

    GUESS WHO LEFT THEIR LEGS THERE

    #235 82 days ago
    Quoted from lowbeau67:

    Played the beatles. What a cool pin. Also got to play
    Munsters LE with the full pinstadiums. Wow what a cool
    Light show and got to talk with Scott from pinstadium.
    Dude was super nice and friendly . My favorite pin was that
    badass ACDC that gryzz brought. Awesome. Can't wait
    to go back tomorrow with my grandson.

    Hey thanks bub! Was a great show!

    #236 82 days ago
    Quoted from Gryszzz:

    GUESS WHO LEFT THEIR LEGS THERE

    You too?!? I’m sure it had nothing to do with the 3 am pinball tournament. Luckily the legs I left did not belong to any particular game. Haha

    #237 82 days ago

    I've always used the LAX pins as "honor badges" for the games I take, but this year's included that cool card that struck me a little differently. With a little trimming, it works great!

    Any collector that brought games that didn't get their pin, I'm so sorry! I wasn't ready to hand them out until it was too late. So please, if you didn't get yours let me know via PM and I'll either mail you yours or get it to you the next time I see you at a show or event.

    Thanks!

    Maybe for those who are moving games out early while it's still dark in the venue and there are still kids running around, they should have spotters from the staff help them safely negotiate their way through? Out of nowhere there would be people rolling through with no visibility. Hopefully there were no injuries, but it didn't feel entirely safe to me having my 3-year-old there during the last couple hours on Sunday. One guy had an entire pin, up on legs (one leg leveler was clearly bent and stressed from the move), tilted back on a dolly rocking side to side appearing to almost fall over near my family as we were trying to pay attention to playing a game.

    So, sure, Sunday is already discounted, but apparently if you're only able to come in during the last couple hours, you have to deal with a frequent added stress of making sure your family doesn't get crushed while you're in the middle of a game.

    I hope this is coming across as constructive feedback. I did enjoy the time I had, but I will probably not bring my family back late on Sunday again. If it had just been me, I'd have had no concerns at all.

    #240 81 days ago

    3rd place? That's BULLSHIT.
