Quoted from YeOldPinPlayer:

I've been there. It's just like any other Dave & Buster's. The P3 is set up with Heads Up on both machines. You can play solo or linked. It's a timed, two round game. It's not set up for redemption (I don't think any of their games are but I didn't look too hard).
Other than the P3 I thought the huge Rock 'Em, Sock 'Em Robots was the coolest thing there. https://duckduckgo.com/?q=giant+rock+em+sock+em+robots&t=ffab&ia=videos

Quoted from Zitt:

Redemption is more of a ChunkyCheese thing... rather than an adult establishment like D&B is geared towards; so it kinda makes since that redemption isn't really a thing there.

The majority of D&B is redemption oriented. I used to go every week when I lived in Orlando. There's a chunk of games that aren't redemption, but the only ones that generate a regular wait-line are redemption.

D&B is definitely a redemption game venue. It’s nice that they put all the “tickets” on the game cards these days. Better than all those out of control tickets falling out of mini-buckets everywhere.

Congrats to your company. I wouldn't go as far to say its groundbreaking for pinball, I think you should have said its groundbreaking for your company.

Dave and Busters focus is redemption games pinball a real traditional pinball game doesn't fit that profile so because they're missing from Dave Busters I don't think is a big deal. Fact is Dave and Busters is starting to get their teeth kicked in by similar places that DO have pinball like Punch Bowl Social.

Punch Bowl Social outgrossed every single Dave and Busters when located in the same city, same as Top Golf, and the new bad boy https://andrettikarting.com/

Furthermore EVERY SINGLE NEW bowling center is the new Dave and Busters but only with mini golf, laser tag, escape rooms, bumper cars, and massive redemption arcades. The newest Dave and Busters just added string bowling NOT pinball. I don't think its groundbreaking for Dave and Busters a near dinosaur now having or not having pinball. What is good for pinball is Punch Bowl Social, Bowling Centers, and all the new retro arcades that are adding pinball.

I say good for you, as an American based company I hope you do awesome. I think your video based games probably fit the Dave and Busters profile and I hope you sell tons more to them... but pinball is doing just fine without Dave and Busters.

We're super proud to announce that Dave & Buster’s in Austin is now showcasing P3 machines with Heads Up! (a new P3 game head-to-head gameplay) in its Austin, TX location.

Please get out and play these machines (and/or go to your local D&B and ask that they get them). They've given pinball a chance again. Help show them they're making the right decision!

Not a lot. It’s encouraging for a great guy.
On the other end you have 40 TBL sold for crazy price in on day.
We may take some distance with the thumb up.

It depends. Are they running a special while you're there? Are you counting the activation fee for buying a new card and converting your universal US currency to limited usage Dave and Buster's credits?

IIRC it's 125 credits, whatever those are.
