    Was at The Shark Club in Howell, MI and they had all you can play for $20 (included a food buffet and pop) yesterday. I played about 4-5 hrs non stop and now I have sore wrists and tingly fingers. Don't think I'll play that much at once again but it sure was fun. After yesterday, I really really want that Metallica machine. What's the longest you've ever played at one time?

    On a side note, I was very excited to try TRS (one of the reasons I drove that far) but was very disappointed to find out when I got there that they got rid of it. I know it gets mostly horrible reviews but they are by far my favorite band and I've actually came across a person and a whole thread on here where some liked it.

    That's how I feel every time I leave the PHOF in Vegas.

    seems like a normal get together, for me....

    8 hours on a Friday night and then 15-16 hours on Saturday at the Texas Pinball festival. I start to feel carpal tunnel on my wrists after awhile. Always wear comfortable shoes and take some breaks when your wrists and fingers start to hurt.

    If you make it to this side of the state to play again, send me a PM ahead of time. We could meet up to play. TRS is at a local bar in my hood, Royal Oak MI.

    About that, Axel needs do a bit of work before we get to Howell.

    Play till your hands bleed-LOL

    It would be interesting to do one of those giveaways like they do with a new car-where you have to keep a hand on the car until everyone else drops out to win the car. We could do it with pinball machines where you have to see who can play pinball the longest to see who takes the machine home-play to win? I think I just came up with next marketing gimmick for pinball show-LOL
