    Terry from pinball life has all the armor. He has raw material and can put a complete kit together. Hope that's what your looking for.

    Lets see ... JJP has a 1.5 hour block of time before you, you're censoring your mug tease ... could there be a JJP reveal right before your shindig? I hope so.

    hope not, they need to get pirates out in mass production before starting another reveal

    I thought it might be a little rip at Zen Studios for censoring some of the animations on the B/W games.

    Pinside is family friendly. The back of that mug is not.

    I'm excited. Any estimate on how many games will be in freeplay? Flight is Wednesday.

    Quoted from vidgameseller:

    Rob said $$$, but $10 a game is not much of an incentive, besides the work to break down a machine, take it to a show, set it up, and more than likely break it down again, The work alone isn't worth $10. Not factor in that your game will be on for 72 hours straight, with 10 games, something is bound to go wrong and cost more than what you made on all the games to repair

    This attitude is so negative. I bring 8-12 games to our local show every year. We all work on our games, fix them up so they look and play well, and get excited to share our games with each other and the general public. What's the reason you participate in a show? Just pay money and show up? I liked to be involved. For me it's to share my games, be involved in community, help put together a giant fun arcade with fellow collectors and to see the smiles of kids and adults and they play our games. Is it a lot of work? Hell yeah! I help set up and break down the Northwest Show, my girlfriend and I as a team probably break down and wrap 50 pins after the show closed on Sunday night. This last one I was unloading my games at 2am when they finally arrived home. But it's totally worth it for what we create one weekend every year. The incentives aren't financial at all for me, it's about community, the hobby, and the joy of sharing.

    Ive actually talked with Rob Craig, Ive known him for many years. As my post came across a way that it wasn't intended. Im gonna support the show regardless, but there is a lot that needs clarity if that is how they are gonna run it. There are not a ton of people that will bring tons of games. My buddy and I will have around 10 games between the two of us. sadly, thats a lot for this show (I take over 20 each year to Midwest gaming classic) but if you are going to try to give insentives to people, the 10 really isn't much. My main question was, I get 4 armbands, im only one person, so I dont need the extras, but do I have to pay a penalty if 1 of the 3 I will have for sale is purchased, Rob and I talked and thats handled. I do think that there may be one other person that will bring more games since the cincinatti crew are not coming, but he is a vendor and will have them behind tables and you cant play them unless your buying it

    I just spoke to my neighbor that wants to go with his kids. He checked the schedule and saw a groupon for thursday $19.00 per ticket normally $30?

    We both exercised that option, I'm bring my wife who is less than thrilled to be going. Friday was maybe $5.00 off per ticket.

    Cheers.

    So kids no longer get in for free? Years past Expo was free for kids up to like age 11 or 12.

    Kids 10 and under should be $100 to get in.

    Pay attention to the fine print...

    Dates and free play times:
    Thursday 6pm to midnight
    Friday 6 pm to midnight
    Saturday 10 am to midnight

    From my reading entry into the freeplay room is from day bought until next day when the ticket booth opens. Aka overnight. The hours you posted are the vendor hall hours.
    That’s my understanding.
