Just curious why this isn't also listed under Events, but then again, that's how it seems to be for many of these shows. And my next question would be, can anyone add the event, or does it need to be done by the promoter?

I think anyone can add an event; but not sure.
robin or one of the moderators would know for sure.

#203 2 years ago

The show closes pretty early on Sunday and all the flights back were pricey so we are leaving Monday. Can anyone recommend a good place to play Sunday afternoon and evening? Looking for good quality pins with a nice variety.

Any verified Pinsider can add events to the calendar. I think ed_in_texas mentioned that he wanted to add the event himself. Not sure why he hasn't done that yet with only 3 months to go. Ed?

All,

This week I announced new monitoring indications in the Pro version of my WPC Power Fix Daughterboard (details here: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/announcing-new-product-to-help-resolve-resets-in-wpc-era-games/page/9#post-3519493). I also noted that 2016 Edition Pro Daughterboards can be upgraded with the new monitoring software at shows I attend (3 posts later in that thread). So, if you are coming to Texas and bought a Pro in 2016, bring it to my booth for the upgrade! If you bought one and aren't planning to come to Texas, perhaps this is another piece of evidence to help change your mind? See you there...

-visit http://www.kahr.us to get my daughterboard that helps fix WPC pinball resets or for my Pinball 2000 H+V video sync adapter kit

There is a cool retro arcade off that same road (Belt Line) called Free Play. It's about a mile or so West of Nickelrama. Their games aren't in the best of shape but they have a big collection of retro arcades and a good beer selection. Last time I was there they had a The Addams Family , FunHouse , Rollergames , The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends and The Machine: Bride of Pinbot

Looks like they may have replaced FunHouse with a Terminator 2: Judgment Day

There is plenty to do at the show. If you don't get your fill of pinball, them go to Nickelrama. There is a pizza place next door to it.

However, there are literally hundreds of fun things to do in DFW on Sunday before you fly back. Why not enjoy the area instead?

Would it be a loser thing to make a pinside badge with my pinside name?

Pinside has a feature that does that for you. It can generate a pinside badge for you to print out and wear. I think the feature would be on your profile page.

Flash Gordon is going to be there??? Awesome. I love you Flash but I only have 14 hours to drive to Texas, win the big tournament and save Earth.

Lapnip, I am stoked that you will have your BM there. I wouldn't dare ask to play it but could I maybe just stand next to it? I am willing to submit a video application if necessary.

yes. $40 to stand next to it.
Video Application in triplicate required in advance.
Another $20 and you can get your picture with it, but you can't sell the picture for 18 months afterwards
