    Time to shake off those winter blues.

    Feb 8th.

    This one will be more low key then last time. Cheap Pizza, Chips and Cookies.

    PLEASE BRING A 6 PACK of BEER to share

    4:00-Whenever.

    7:00PM $5.00 single Elimination Bubble Hockey Tourney.

    Did this at my tour party and it was a lot of fun. Here is how it works. Sign up at 6:30PM. Give me your $5.00. Then we will build brackets based on how many people sign up. We will draw numbers out of a hat to fill the slots for each round. If its an odd number of players there will be a "bye" card that can be pulled for that round. After each round we will redraw names and slots for the next round. Rinse and repeat until we have a winner. Winner takes the pot.

    Please RSVP through a PM. Please include your email address so I can send you info and updates outside the pinball robot. When you email I will give you the address to the house.

    Msg'd and RSVP'd. Now I gotta find a killer 6 pack to share!

    #7 8 years ago

    Responded to your email.

    I was disappointed that I missed your last party and it looks like I will be out of town during this party as well. From the gameroom pics it looks like you have a killer collection. I'm still stuck on my first machine and saving funds for the next one. Next time you host a party I'm going to make sure I can make it there since I'm only 20 minutes away and there are not many machines on location around me. I look forward to meeting a fellow pinhead someday.

    Hey All,

    Bored Wednesday night? Adam is coming over to check things out. If you want to stop by just hit me up. I'll buy some chips. I figure we should try and wrap things up by 10:00PM or so.

    Looking forward to the party

    Just reviewing the driving route now.

    #20 8 years ago

    I found some Shasta after all. Will bring. Not brining three types of lunch meat or cheese though.

    Not sure if you know Russ but he was thinking about making the trip down. You may be able to carpool.

    Russ,

    Make sure we play a few games together. Last time I don't think we got a chance to play at all, and I am horrible putting faces to names (working on it).... If you can't find me, just look for the guy putting his initials on all the high score tables.

    Chris,
    This party actually sounds like it may be bigger than the last one. I will swing by a little early and get that FT out of the basement so you have room for everyone.

    Russ. If your looking for Tim he will be the only one playing WOF. Russ has his name on Diner for sure and maybe a couple more.

    I'm taking the same tactic this time. Make time to play with more people.

    Come early and someone can help you move it. I'm tired of moving shows in and out of the basement.

    Atlantis & Taxi are set up in the living room so people will be able to spread out a little.

    Working on NBAFB right now to get it up and running.

    Russ, if you're looking for Tim, he'll be the other one playing WOF; probably not swearing at the game every ball like someone else

    Tim, if you need help getting FT out, let me know.

    #28 8 years ago

    I kind of have the itch to play that Diner again. I love System 11's and that is the only Diner I have ever seen.

    Thanks Chris, Russ lives about 30 min from me. Saturday I will be coming from my in-laws in Beaver Dam. Otherwise I would be traveling with Russ. Last year when we went to Eric's party Russ told me that he would be snoozing on the way back (no problem).You know what? we ended up talking the whole trip

    I forgot Russ did mention you had a Diner, I am looking forward to playing it as well. I love my Taxi game!

    Sounds great. Yeah I'm pretty happy withe the collection right now. I this the is some good variety for everyone. Although at times I wish I had space for about 6 more machines so I could get some oddball stuff.

    #35 8 years ago

    Thanks again Chris for hosting a great event

    My favorite thing was visiting with friends and meeting new people. On the pinball end I enjoyed learning some nuances on a few machines (Atlantis, Diner, Elivira, and River boat gamblier, plus a few more)

    See you next time,

    Thanks for making the trip.

    Just finished up and shut the basement down.

    Next time I'll gladly give you a tour RBG. I love that machine.

    Thanks to everyone that braved the weather. I know it wasn't the best day for travel. Your all troopers for making the trek.

    Nice to see the crowd from the state tourney drop by. I'm sure you all had your fill of pinball today. It's was a nice effort to make the time to drop by.

    Audits in the AM.

    Thanks Chris for the awesome party.

    #38 8 years ago

    Had a great time last night.. till I broke the drop.. Thanks Chris.

    #39 8 years ago

    Thanks for Hosting Chris, your place and collection are both really nice.

    It was cool to put more faces to names for people in the area I hadn't met yet. How many of them I managed to commit to long term memory remains to be seen, but I'm tryin'.

    Thanks Chris. Great party again!

    #41 8 years ago

    Wish someone in Central/Southern NJ with a collection as nice and varied as Chris's would hold a pin party, especially during this depressingly cold winter...

    9 great games in your collection. What are you waiting for? Someone has to start the trend

    #43 8 years ago

    Great Party Chris! HMM is really cool!

    #44 8 years ago

    Sorry I missed this one, I'll make a concerted effort to make the next!

    Joe, thanks for making the trip through the snow. Always great to see you. Honestly, and no offense to anyone else but doing the 2 man repair to the MET was one of the highlights of the night.

    Just 2 dudes fumbling there way through a repair.

    The doors always open.

    I could barely hear it over the din of the other awesome rock themed pins in the line up

    Quoted from RustyLizard:

    It's the bad part about parties like this. So much noise you can't hear the cheesy riffs. When Russ and I hit the machine at the end if the night I did notice that someone had turned the volume up on HMM. It made me smile.

    For all its cheese its a fun machine.

    I know right. Now they just need to come out with Iron Maidan and the line-up will be complete.

    Anybody want to buy an Elvis. I mean something will have to go.
