Polynesia will be making an appearance this upcoming Saturday, August 18 at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History.

Details of the event here:
https://www.fwmuseum.org/exhibit/give-back-game-night/

I am also looking into another opportunity to have Polynesia on display, but for a much longer time period ( three weeks), and in another nearby State. Details will be posted once everything is finalized.

Really excited to get to get to see this game next week in Shreveport! Big fan of Tiki kitsch; I’ll never sell my hula girl lamp. Really cool retheme. Congrats on best custom last year. Will it be at TPF again 2019?

Yes, Polynesia will be at TPF 2019 in her final form (still some design tweaks and art upgrades to do), and will be for sale.

I just viewed this thread. WOW, amazing.
You even changed the font of the numbers on the score reels.

this game looks so nice, well done

#166 1 year ago

It was really inspiring to see this at TPF, I love woodworking and pinball so this was REALLY up my alley. My wife and I are currently scheming our own full custom re-theme, thanks for sharing it and for the inspiration!

A few new pics from this past TPF. I finished off the backbox and put in the new "backglass" to include properly made surrounds for the score reels and indicator lights, plus some nice backlighting and glowing eyes on the tiki.

Still need to take a look at the game counter to see the number of games played at TPF this year, but pretty sure it's more than last year as she was pretty much all by herself out in the hallway all weekend. No issues other than a couple of ball hangs on the shooter lane rollover switch halfway up the playfield, just have to tweak the wire shape a touch.

Polynesia can be yours to add a great accent to your home tiki bar. I'm asking $9,000 OBO. PM me if you are interested.

You can't miss her, she's right next to the registration desk. Stop by our booth (Eight Bit Dreams) and tell me what you think!

Thanks for bringing your custom game to Houston! Our group had fun playing it, I could tell it was an old Williams game, glad more answers are to be found here, will check out the build more later. Awesome final product!
