    The York show had closer to 200 games on the floor on Friday, over 160 on free play. It also has a free admission flea market which is usually larger but the 9 inches of rain on Friday scared a lot of people off.
    Allentown also has a great BBQ / Ice Cream place on the far end of the fairgrounds. The Ritz. It is like a trip back into the 40's when you go in there.

    It is always a tough decision between the farmers market and the Ritz for me. The great food and awesome historic building of the Ritz usually wins. The food choices at Allentown are the best you are going to find anywhere for any show. And not just Pinball shows. It is a unique location that can house a show and have so many choices food wise.

    I think the York show was better this year. The rain caused some problems but there was still over 160 games on free play on Friday, Stern's Star Trek and JJP Wizard of Oz were also there. But with all the shows, it is the pinball collector community that actually controls how good a show is. If you go to the shows just to play games, you are missing out on the best part of the shows. Which in my opinion is the meeting and talking with the other collectors at the show.

    What can you do to stop someone from carrying out their property? The early game removal fee isn't a huge deterrent on a couple of thousand dollar item.
    I usually take a few games that aren't for sale to the shows and I always get at least one person that tells me I am stupid for bringing a game and not having it up for sale. Which causes me to do things like put ridiculous prices on them knowing that I will get crap for the price but less crap than not having it up for sale. You should have heard the comments the year I decided to up the price every hour. The guys from the forums are the worst offenders on being proud members of the pricing police.
