    A place holder to get this weekend started right. Even though many of our fellow pinnerds are not able to attend this weekend, we should try to share the experience to the best of our abilities.

    I know I really enjoyed the info from other recent shows, so lets try and share the love.

    ohhh, look at that big room.. I think that will be so much better than the prev room!

    Update from the show! For those of you signed up for the tournaments, we decided that we wanted to expand the scope of the tournaments at the show so they are going to be FREE for everyone, and for the pinball tournaments we're still doing cash prizes! Entries will be somewhat limited (due to time, available slots, and just being fair!), but we're hoping to greatly expand how many people can play, and we're hoping to get tournament players some time so that they can check out the rest of the show!

    We'll be sending an email with more details soon, making a Facebook post, and we can explain more at the show. Essentially, pre-order ticket sales were strong enough that we can make this happen and add an additional awesome thing for attendees to do a the show.

    We know that this is a late announcement, but we hope that you all think it's as great as we do that we can do this!

    I didn't know the "Godfather" let people take pictures of him! Love It!

    Mustang is a pretty decent game. If you are a car enthusiast it is a no brainer getting one. I did win the first 4 player game though as I assumed we were playing for the pink slip. Thanks Tullster! I dont need the box when I take it home, go ahead and toss it out.

    I have managed to play two games so far this year. Well, one and a half. One on Tron and one ball on my NIB Metallica. If past years are any indication, I have 5 balls left to play before I'm done playing for the weekend

    There are 3 hotels JUST on the other side (south) of 94 from where the MGC is. There's a Country Inn & Suites, a Best Western and the Brookfield Suites Convention Center. Not sure what any of their room rates are though.

    At the airport now! Mustang is pretty fun and it looks to still have a pretty early code. Looking forward to putting some more time on it. Is there a list anywhere posted what games are going to be there?

    Cool. Thanks for the links.

    I am assuming buying a couple tix at the door will be no problem?

    Edit: I see there is tickets for sale at the door on the MGC website.

    That "tent" is awesome, what a great show this is gonna be this year. I plan on bringing about four machines , is it alright to come Saturday morning or is Friday better for dropping them off?

    They'd prefer delivery/setup on friday - but if you have to come saturday, come early. Well before the show opens (at 10)

    Yeah, that nomenclature had me stumped as well. It would be bad if somehow all of this info got posted into an unofficial thread
