    Cointaker is running the Stern booth

    Quoted from dannunz:

    Who is setting up and running the sterns booth?

    Coin-Taker

    Quoted from mot:

    Damn I just realized that parking is going to be expensive.

    It's $6.00-7.25 for all day parking in the lots directly across from the Consol Energy Center, but you'll have to walk a few blocks. I'm not sure if the lot is open on weekends, but by then there will be plenty of inexpensive parking downtown.

    #254 5 years ago

    Saturday......please come faster !!!!!!!!!!

    #255 5 years ago

    To the actual convention hall between 8am and 10am (if you're in pinburg, if not the timeframe doesn't much matter).

    #260 5 years ago

    Are there any live standings for the non-Pinburgh competitions at Replay?

    #261 5 years ago

    I didn't read through the whole thread yet. Sry if this is repeated. Will there be a live broadcast starting sometime today?

    #262 5 years ago

    Pinburgh will only stream on Saturday for the finals.

    Doh, got distracted by the upside down comic picture right below it and missed that post completely. That's a bummer though. Was hoping to get a fix today.

    If no streaming, did someone say there will be live results of the 5 rounds today?

    So Pittsburgers, what is like the "official foods" of Pittsburgh

    Like the official foods of Texas are Barbecue and Mexican, New England is lobster, Maryland is crabs, etc.

    #272 5 years ago

    The official food of Pittsburgh is food. Meat-heavy food. And lots of it. And at a great price.

    #273 5 years ago

    I would describe the official food of pittsburgh as "not salad." But the one above works too.

    #274 5 years ago

There hase never been a show like this EVER .Get off your butts and comedown to insure it will happen again..It NOT just for tournrament people Its for EVRYONE kids too..

    I just missed out on being able to go this year (work issues). Next year is a must for my family.

    #276 5 years ago

    Im taking my daughter and wife to the One Direction show at Heinz field sunday evening and we are going early to get some Replay time in.

    I cant wait, ive never been to a huge pinball tournament/even like this.

    Given the food discussion above, are there places to eat either at the convention center or along the walk between there and the Heinz field?

    Im thinking about a primanti bros. Or something like that.

    Mike is right, this show is amazing. If you can make it to the show you should.

    I used to travel to Pittsburgh alot in the day with my job. Yes, Pittsburgh is a meat and potatoes town, but I always enjoyed a good "steak salad" at some of the downtown restaurants and bars. Good salad with lots of steak and french fries dumped on top...

    #282 5 years ago

    Primanti Brothers is widely considered the most 'Pittsburgh' food to get while you're here. I highly recommend going to the location in the strip district a few blocks from the show. That one is a cut above the rest. The sandwiches are all pittsburgh style. For that matter, most salads you buy at restaurants around town will be topped with fries too. There are a ton of great places to eat and drink in the blocks around the convention center.

    #283 5 years ago

    It is killing me to not have some broadcast of the Pinburgh play yesterday and today. I sure miss the past when we got to see 2-3 straight days of broadcast and commentary during the endurance rounds leading up to finals.. Realize with large field of players and number of games involved with the ReplayFX format it is not practical but I am thankful at least to have the A division finals broadcast Saturday.

    #284 5 years ago

    If ever there was a show worthy of a plane ticket I am thinking that this one is it. Absolutely impressive.

    #285 5 years ago

    Having a great time! Got kicked out of the Pinburgh area last night (the whole space was empty during what I suppose was dinner break, my friends and I just strolled in) but it was all good, a little misunderstanding. The two friends I'm with haven't played pinball in over a decade and they just can't believe all the games there are to play!

    Couple of things I'm hoping get worked out:

    - the machines are supposed to be on free play, but I saw a good 20% of them with no credits, and no apparent way to get more on the machine.

    - there were quite a few pins & arcade games that were out of order. Hoping that gets resolved soon.

    - America's Most Haunted is AWESOME.

    - Spy Hunter II is not.

    #286 5 years ago

    Anyone know who sells sahker motors for the best price at Replay FX..... I've got a buddy down there that can pick one up for me as well wondering if pinbits is there and cliffy?

    #287 5 years ago

    check with Cointaker on the Shaker Motor, I think they had some killer prices at some of the other shows.

    #288 5 years ago
    Quoted from Jetzxi:

    It's tough to check when I'm 11hrs away from the show Got confirmation Shakers are $99 How about some pinbits protectors for Tron as well as cliffy's? do you guys know if anyone is carrying them?

    Replay FX, and not the Pinburgh competition on its own has been advertised on the stream of every large pin tournament I have seen for months now, and likely longer. That's not to say that those streams are the only way it should have been advertised, but if you stream tournaments, you have been told about Replay FX. I was talking to a friend yesterday at work about how I really wished I was there. Putting it on my to do list for next year.

    #290 5 years ago

    I can't remember what that sandwich is called but I was in Pittsburgh and everyone I was with was talking that thing up. Just talking about how great it is but man I just couldn't get into it.

    Aww not happy to hear that. I plan to be there tomorrow or sun day.

    it could just be first day glitches - don't let what I said keep you away, it's still a lot of fun!

    #293 5 years ago

    So does anyone have a rough estimate of how many pins are there? Judging by the photos posted here, it doesn't look to be even close to the amount of machines listed to be in attendance on the Replay site.

    I meant for you to have your buddy check

    However it may be, it's a feat beyond what I have ever seen. That's a lot of games in the recent pics.

    lol, I'll just flip my laptop over

    #300 5 years ago

    Okay now it looks like the amount they said they would have!! I guess the pictures I saw were of only one corner of the room or maybe they were taken yesterday when everything wasn't there yet. Are machines still arriving?

    Also, Has anyone found where the cheap parking is?
