Vidgameseller has stepped up the game and posted a public challenge to me for bringing rare and high quality pins to MGC (april 8-10, 2016). I love his positivity! Because of this I figured lets have a little fun with this and lets get more GREAT and RARE titles to MGC this year!
I personally am going to run a contest for the BEST RARE TITLEs and will award prizes. (Dan if you have any problem with me doing this then let me know. I dont want to step on any toes and this is intended to be entirely different than your normal "best in show" contest)
This is how it works:
Every person bringing a game to MGC will be handed 2 special painted quarters. It is asked that you place each quarter into a RARE game of your choosing that you personally think is both rare and plays great.
RARE typically means it is not a common game to see for you, but I will leave this open to your interpretation.
**It is up to you as the quarter dropper to decide for yourself what you think is rare! Entirerly your decision!
My only request is that the game should be playing great and well tuned.
Please place this quarter into a game by Saturday night BEFORE the start of the afterparty.
It is asked that owners of rare games check their coinbox at the very start of the afterparty and then find (I think afterparty starts at 8pm? so find me by 8:10) me so I can tally the votes.
BEST RARE non-DMD/solidstate
BEST RARE DMD
BEST RARE EM or non-traditional pinball game (MUST be a pinball machine) The focus of this is pinball
I will personally provide some fun and interesting prizes.
edit to add growing list (you dont have to share in advance but why not):
One of the pins I bring will likely be NightMoves (with NOS clearcoated pf?) or Carribean Cruise (HUO)
