Hey everyone,

I am having an all day open house party at my place tomorrow that will run from 12:30 pm until whenever (i am sure people will still be around until 2-3 am). I wanted to do a fun experiment because of my own curiosity. I want to hold a contest on what game in my collection will receive the most plays.

The winner of this contest will be the person that picks the game with the most plays. If more than one person picks the game, the tie breaker will be the total number of plays played over the course of the day. We are not savages out here people so Price is Right rules (closest without going over). So, when you make your choice, also post the total number of plays you think it gets over the course of the day.

We are expecting about 50 total people to show up in some capacity tomorrow. mostly family and friends, but at least 10 are expected to be pinheads, so keep that in mind.

Here is the lineup:

Baby Pacman (dialed in, very nice shape. I have had this the longest. Almost 3 years)
Fire! (very nice shape too. I have had this for about 1.5 years)
WCS (new game! have had it for about 2 weeks and just finished a nice shop of it and looks great)
LW3 (great shape too, and I have had this for about 6 months)
Big Game (players condition, I have had this for 2.5 years)
GOT Pro (NIB original owner. I have had this since February)
Odds and Evens (amazing original condition. I have had this since October)
Grand Prix (good shape players condition. I have had this for like 2 weeks)

Prizes to be determined, but probably some LEDs from Comet and/or Titan silicone rings.

Let the games begin!! Must post here to be eligible (game and number of plays). International contestants welcome too! I will ship to the moon if I have to so that you can get your prize.

I will post the current plays on the games before bed tonight so that everyone knows the starting point for each game.

Good Luck!!

Quoted from Whysnow:

question, is this specifically a party centered around pinball? (if so then GoT with 93 plays)
or is this a regular party that just so happens to have pinball for play? (if so then WCS with 53 plays)

Open house party first. Just happens to have games. Your second guess it is.

Quoted from bobukcat:

Would it be considered cheating if I guess GOT and a very high number then come over and just stand there with my cooler of beer next to me pumping short games through it? (to be honest, my games are usually pretty quick anyway because I suck - especially on GOT!)

No one attending can win sorry. Haha. Don't bring beer either. We will have tons. Just bud light and Miller light though.

Gonna be a rebel and say LW3 $1 Bob

Finally a one dollar bet!! Love it.

Also I had 30 dudes over for poker two weeks ago and they couldn't be pried off O & E. played until a saucer coil broke a winding.

Quoted from Cornelius:

People will discover the goodness of LW3 and the joy of hearing Leo Getz say "okokok" ad nauseam, so I'm saying LW3, 91 plays.

There is one guy that is coming over that all he plays is LW3.

Still not a single wager for Baby PAC or O&E? Bummer. I'm gonna say O&E for 75 games. Won't count for anything, just want to see.

OH,its over,have fun!!

Sorry. Didn't mean to say that no more wagers can be made. Just wanted to show their total plays as of now. I'll take bets until the Cats tip off tomorrow at 12:30.

Keep em coming!!!

The results are in!!

In 8th place with 26 plays, Baby pacman

In 7th place with 34 plays, Fire!

In 6th place with 42 plays, Big Game

In 5th place with 43 plays, LW3

In 4th place with 46 plays, Odds and Evens

In 3rd place with 55 plays, Grand Prix

In 2nd place with 62 plays, WCS

And the winner with 81 plays, GOT pro!!

I believe this makes the winner schudel5 !! Please pm me your name and address and I'll send out your winnings.

I thought there was going to be more plays than this overall. Most of the people took a while to venture down to start playing. We had multiple repeated competitive games on O&E and Grand Prix that really jumped their plays during the course of the day. Once GOT started going people stayed on it almost until around 8-9 o'clock.

I think one kid is responsible for all 26 plays of baby PAC. Haha.

Poor Fire didn't get the love it normally does.

None of the games experienced issues and they played solid all day.

Thanks for playing everyone!!

Quoted from VacFink:

I had put my money on anything other than GOT presuming the pinheads would long play it lowering the total count. Fun contest.

Me too, but the newbies were hogging it so they couldn't play haha. Also with having that Odds and Evens (no one in the area has one), most of the pinheads played that.
