<<<<"Non-standard pins are fun to be able to experience. It was awesome last year seeing a Joust. I wasn't even aware of the head-to-head concept (not that I was or am a seasoned pinhead). Then I learned only something like 400 were made. That made me both very appreciative of the collector who brought it and curious how anyone manages to bring valuable gems to an expo with hordes of people, who aren't necessarily going to treat these games like they should, and not babysit their game the whole time or bite their nails when they're away.
I know it's counter-intuitive to the expo format, but I think I'd be too OCD to be comfortable bringing a game I really cared about (all of them! ). I know you have to bring games in order for there to be games at the show, so how do collectors get over it and enjoy themselves, or is that not a problem for most? Even having 6 family members over the other day to play my games had me too anxious to be able to really relax and enjoy myself, not to mention random things kept breaking...">>>>
Yes it was my Joust, I will most likely bring it back again this year. I have taken it to alot of shows since I got it put back together after its restore. Everyone seems to like it and it is popular, so as long as folks enjoy it I will try to bring it. I'm also planning to bring my Metallica, Congo, Warlok, maybe Popeye. Not sure on others, I like to bring games folks don't see all the time.
I really don't worry about games too much when I take them, They were made to be played. I know that some can get a bit carried away, but most are respectful of the games and know that as Futurepinhead said, There are lots of Pinheads around and everyone tends to watch out for each others games.
Louisville has been a great show, Matt and Jeremy do a great job! Looking forward to it again this year!!
See everyone there!
