    Does anyone know any prices on the games that are for sale? I'm most interested in the 90s games like Champion Pub.

    Saw 5200 written on the championship pub.

    Been a great show so far. Loving the number of games I've never played before turning up this year. Definitely adding sorcerer and cosmic gunfight to my williams wanted list lol

    Though Bally row has me eyeing a few down that road... by god the centaur is awesome too.

    In the event that this isn't an inside joke that's going over my head, that's Keith Elwin (of Stern).

    Just dropped off my game for classic bally row. Be back in the morning. A lot of cool games! I didnt see the classic bally shirts either, was hoping to represent tomorrow, but oh well!

    #409 4 months ago

    That Bally row is really fun. Medusa is a favorite and that restored Centaur is absolutely stunning. The full blackout treatment is really beautiful.

    Excited for today! But one quick announcement...

    For those that don’t know, John Dayhuff has been a vendor for the last 20 years at PATZ and has ran the auction. I truly don’t believe PATZ would be where it’s at with out John being involved.... if you have a second, shake his hand and say thank you for everything he does and has done for the show. Oh and maybe buy something

    If you haven't received your Bally Row t-shirt yet, please seek me out today. I'll be wearing a red CENTAUR shirt.

    Thanks to everyone that has brought a game. Today should be another great day.

    #419 4 months ago

    I appologize to anyone wanting to play speakeasy. I set the price high figuring it wouldnt sell but it did in 20 min! Guy took it home right away. Could not in good conscience take a bally row shirt. Maybe next year! That row is awesome! Thanks to everyone that brought games!

    Thank you PATZ for the Best in Show for a 1980’s machine award for my F-14 Tomcat! I was really proud to share it with everyone.

    That tomcat was glorious ..perfect game!

    #422 4 months ago

    If you brought a game for Bally Row text me 574-596-2668 and I can meet you over there to get you your poster.

    #423 4 months ago

    All I know is the F-14 and the Centaur were the nicest I have ever seen. I own F-14 and will cry in shame every time I play it.

    #424 4 months ago

    Both those were beautiful. Was really hoping the f14 was for sale. That thing was beautiful!!!!

    #425 4 months ago

    Thanks to all who brought games! My favorites were universe, world series and deadly weapon as it had an odd but great layout with lots of combo shots. Now if anyone had one of those for sale it'd be a real shame for me to buy it

    We have been to patz for the last 5 years and this year was the best so far. Thx to everyone involved great job.

    #434 4 months ago

    Another great year for PATZ!!!! Everything was very well run, great thanks to all the dedicated staff involved!!! Thanks for all the hard work and sacrifice everyone made to make this show/tournament great!

    #435 4 months ago

    Looking towards PATZ. Should be the best one yet.

    #436 4 months ago

    Just returned to Chicago after 2 days at my first PATZ. Thank you everyone who organized the show, brought machines and more importantly, kept them running. Was also good to see all ages of people there, especially today. Seeing the little ones carrying around their steps stools was priceless.

    Vendors I spoke to were great with a special shout out to the guys from American Pinball and Ryan Claytor. Will definitely be back next year, hopefully bringing a few machines. It definitely looks like almost everyone was treating the machines with respect. Not something you always see.

    #437 4 months ago

    Really enjoyed the quantity/quality/variety of games this year. But as my wife pointed out there were no Space Shuttles. Kind of weird

    #438 4 months ago

    Great show indeed Lots of games !! Had a blast. And to drive home in various weather conditions plus getting diverted off I 90 to I 47 at Huntley area for potential bomb scare which closed down I90 completely both directions nearly 4.5 hours.

    #439 4 months ago

    WOW, what a great show!! In the last twenty years I've seen them all but this had to be the best one by far, not sure why that was, if it had anything to do with it being the 20th show or not but never the less it was AWESOME. Thanks to everyone that put so much time and effort into making it a great show and I hope that it continues to grow even more in the years to come. Thanks to everyone for spending some cash in my booth, it's much appreciated. Special thanks goes out to Ken, Marcus, Matt, Ron, Phil and my wife SuAnn for helping me do the 10th annual SaturDayhuff Auction, you guys are the BEST!!

    I think everyone came out to see your milestone, or maybe it was your wifes cookies. all kidding aside it was a really good show, its my favorite show.

    Quoted from Joeplainfield:

    Thanks for the mention, Joe. Much appreciated.

    I'd echo your sentiments. What a fantastic show this year!

    #442 4 months ago
    Quoted from Mitoska:

    That was the best game turn out in Years! Excellent show everyone..thanks for bringing games.. some really really nice titles! We even took home the best 90's game for our GNR hope everyone loved playing it and our entire row![quoted image][quoted image]

    That GNR looked and played great. My wife and I have played quite a few GNR pins and they were all "Meh" with lighting, faded out ramps, scratchy sound, not completely functioning correctly,etc. We really never liked GNR pins all that much. Playing this one, with it looking good, great lighting, everything tweaked in correctly, Color DMD, we really had fun with it. Both my wife and I put our initials in on high scores on it on Sunday (and we're only mediocre players). My wife had a really good game on it and it made her day. Thanks for bringing it, we liked playing "a good one" and made us appreciate the game itself more.

    The MI Pinball Refinery MET was pretty awesome as well, along with the other pins that he brought. Thank you to Trent and others that brought some of the newer pins. We really liked to play those as well. Those were better for us than the Bally row, so variety in the show is a very good thing to accommodate people with different pinball tastes/interests. Thanks to the organizers of the show for trying to get a variety of pin eras there.

    I like shows like this to where you can talk to some of the vendors and share ideas and positive opinions on things too. Getting a Pinball Life pre-order at the show was a bonus to save on shipping. Thanks for that! I bought some more trinkets from Rock Custom Pinball too. I had to go for 2 batches of SuAnn's cookies (one batch for desert for lunch) as they were good. Thank you vendors for being there!

    #443 4 months ago

    Great job by everyone. Great selection of games. Thanks to all who put this together!

    #444 4 months ago

    I just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone that helped make this 20th Anniversary PATZ the best one I have been to in a long time. The crowds were great to see, and the selection of machines were the best . I know it takes a lot of effort from the committee and volunteers, time to organization and host this event. From the tournament area to the vendors and their booths, to guys that are bring their machines to let everyone to see and play them. Without every ones helps and precipitation in this show, it would not go on.... I personally had a great time catching up with everyone that I have met over the years in this hobby and now my full time business. I could not be any happier to have this job.

    I also would like to thank the committee for honoring me with the "best modern machine" at the show, with my Pinball Refinery Deadpool Pro. I am sorry I did not get a picture of the machine at the show, the weather was turning to rain/snow and I wanted to get the trailer loading and on the road before it got bad. Also I was honored in 2017 with best of show machine with my Pinball Refinery Spiderman Vault Edition. It's great that they do this for everyone that precipitates and it's not about the trophies, but the memories and great times that we have together.

    I look forward to next years PATZ 2020,

    It was great seeing so many familiar faces and meeting new folks at the show.

    A special thanks and congrats to the entire Harmon family, Kevin, Tommy and Dane for putting on the Bally row, all of the other vendors and all of the volunteers to help make PATZ an amazing show!

    Leeann and I had an absolute blast... can’t wait til next year!

    #446 4 months ago

    I purchased the Freddy Nightmare on Elm Street for a customer of mine from Bruce. My customer just wanted a Gottieb machine, because that's his last name. So this was a nice looking Freddy. Here's a picture that Ben took of me loading up the machine.

    I think this years show was the best since I can remember. I have been attending and vending since 05. The bally row was AWESOME, and cletus's F14 was even better than I expected. This was a perfect example of making lemon-aid out of OCD! jk.
    Dayhuff is better than many licenced auctioneers, and I think folks appreciate how much they save without any fees and taxes. I am still pissed I didnt stick with that Bally playboy, but I didnt save before the show.
    I want to thank the fella who bought my pf (only sale of the weekend) I am so bad with names. I have known him by face for a decade.
    Thanks Kevin for helping me out, and thanks Chris Rock for everything. My Girl adrianna helped me with load in and out, plus food, so she wont see this but thanks to her also. Here"s to next year!

    Hey, that's my kiddo and wife on your Spiderman.. stealing that picture for the memory box. My wife fell in love with your Deadpool this year.

    I just want to repeat everything already said. This was a great year for PATZ and thank you to everyone who puts in so much to make this show great every year. We started attending in 2016 and have never been disappointed.

    I especially want to thank everyone who was so nice to my no so little anymore son. He decided to turn into a social butterfly this year and I apologize if he yacked your ear off. AJ wanted to say "hello and thank you to Ryan, Scott, The pop guy and the T-shirt guy". Honestly he doesn't usually talk to anyone and is very uncomfortable around new people. I think this just reinforces how amazing and welcoming this community is... even when we are frantically digging through a treasure trove of boards and parts at Kevin's booth lol

    Great turn out Bally row! So many great games and the black knights were a favorite of my family. There are not enough things I could say to encompass how much we enjoyed all the games so many generously setup for the show! Keep being awesome PATZ and crew!

    #449 4 months ago
    Quoted from smileymatthew:

    Great job by everyone. Great selection of games. Thanks to all who put this together!

    I'll second that! First time I've been able to come even though I grew up in Kalamazoo. Been out of town for almost 30 years and this was the first time the show matched up with a random trip to visit my parents. Got to play a few pins that have eluded me like Medusa and Back to the Future.
    Wanted to stick around for the auction. Some of those prices were really good. I might have to plan for next year and bring my truck too

    Additionally, was able to get a couple parts that I needed for a couple games. Worked out well.

    #450 4 months ago

    to the gentleman that was looking to purchase the ac/dc train topper from hemi (the pinball refinery) but was a few minutes too late, I have one new in the box that I'm looking to sell. if you're planning on attending the VFW show this coming weekend, we can complete the transaction there if you're still interested in purchasing one
