Quoted from VillaThrills:

That is awesome! Let us know if you need any help!

Wanna bring a game??

#7 1 year ago
Quoted from VillaThrills:

Don’t know that the Hobbit will ever move again. But the ST premium is a possibility.

That would be amazing! If you want I can get you on the email group we are creating for all the collectors around that are bring games/interested in bringing games.

#21 1 year ago

It’s amazing how many people have already contacted me to bring games or help out. This is shaping up to be a fun one.

As soon as we start getting a concrete list of games together we will have an up to date list kept on the website.

Pinball Y'all is a nice touch

Gotta sneak in the KY references where we can!

#36 1 year ago
Quoted from Rock914:

Are you going to have vendors?

Yep! We only have a few spots available this first year due to space. 2/3 are spoken for, but if you’re interested, we can talk about the third. Let me know.

#38 1 year ago
Quoted from T3quila:

I'm excited and looking forward to be there. Now, why do I have to wait so long to buy a ticket?

Complicated stuff here Jackie. A lot of ins, lot of outs, lot of what have yous.

Two days until tickets go on sale!!

#41 1 year ago
Quoted from estrader:

tried to purchase the weekend pass but not on sale yet

Yep. Unfortunately we cannot go live with them until we get final approval from the powers that be. Just waiting for the go ahead! Thanks for the patience.

#46 1 year ago
Quoted from scottslash:

chuckwurt You're good people and I wish you greatest success with Pincinnati! I'm sure wishing I was back in KY!

Wow. Thanks so much for the kind words. Jerry and I are hoping to make this first one as good as possible!

#47 1 year ago
Quoted from T3quila:

Grabbed a couple of weekend passes. Didn't see an option to buy 2 at the same time and had to purchase them separately. Did I miss the selection for more than one?

Yeah sorry. You did nothing wrong. That was a thought I had at the last minute and was a tad too late. Gonna see if we can adjust that at some point.

#52 1 year ago
Quoted from evanc:

Will tournament tickets still be available say next week Chuck?

I would say so. So far we have sold 15-20 tickets for each tournament and the cap is 64 players.

Quoted from evanc:

Also, if we get tourney tickets now, do you think it'll be safe for us to get weekend passes at the door?

I would get them ASAP as we cannot guarantee the show will not be sold out beforehand.

Thanks fo the support!!

#55 1 year ago
Quoted from greenhorn1:

I couldn't really tell for sure from the website...are the tournament games still available in the freeplay area or are they separate? And if separate, how many games will be used by the tournaments?

Freeplay games are being used for the tournaments.

There will be 20 games used for the tournaments and will be grouped together to make them easy to find.

#56 1 year ago
Quoted from KingBW:

What will be the show hours (times)?

Showtimes posted at the bottom of the home page


#57 1 year ago

People asked to have the ability to buy multiple show tickets at once. You should be able to do this now. Thanks!

#61 1 year ago
Quoted from estrader:

How do weekend passes work? Do I have to bring the same person each day or can a big someone different each day?

When you arrive day one, I will give a wrist band for the weekend for you and whomever else you bought them for. We ask that you don’t give the weekend pass to another person other than the person that initially puts it on. If someone else wants to come another day, they can buy a pass for that day.

#63 1 year ago

Preliminary game list being added to the website ASAP! Stay tuned here for updates. Hoping later this month.

#66 1 year ago
Quoted from lancestorm:

Does Gildan provide dimensions for each size. Sometimes a M in one brand is a L in another.

Their website should list it. These are the 6400 soft style.

Quoted from RWH:

No Black Hole????? Tragic.

Trust me we did you a favor. Haha. You want to buy one? I know of at least two that might be for sale.

#71 1 year ago
Quoted from comment23:

I have a NOS PF for this person!

They should be on the google group. I’d post there. The Pincinnati helpers one.

#72 1 year ago

Bunch of updates are live on the website. Check it out!

Here’s the game list for the show:


Right now it looks like none of those will be there, but that could change or someone could work out bringing on to sell you.

#78 1 year ago
Quoted from gentrsa:

Nice List for sure, nice work Erik!

Don’t thank me, thank all these badass collectors in the area! The outpouring of support has way surpassed our expectations. Can’t wait!

#82 1 year ago
Quoted from NPO:

Man, for a chapter show, that is a very strong list. Going to see if the future Mrs. wants to make this a road trip.

Quoted from T3quila:

Nevermind, of course I found them 2 seconds after posting here and not before...

Haha. No worries! We have everyone on a will call list that has bought tickets so if you purchased a ticket we have you in the system. If you lose your receipts for good, feel free to email us at pincinnati@hotmail.com and we can double check your status and get you another confirmation.


#89 1 year ago
Quoted from T3quila:

Awesome, you are the best.
I'm really stoked for the event. Now I have to figure out what I want to play - so many great machines in the lineup. I feel like a kid in a candy store.

Heck yeah! We are very fortunate to have so many awesome collectors supporting the show. It wouldn’t be a show without them!

Quoted from T3quila:

How is the tournament looking, are all the spots already taken?

Tournaments are not sold out yet. Don’t be shy!! You should play. The formats are designed to be fun even for beginners. Basically you’re playing game after game with different groups of people until you get knocked out. Tons of fun!!

You have to start somewhere, so might as well be at Pincinnati! Your first tournament could be at the first ever Cincinnati pinball show! Haha

#92 1 year ago
Quoted from RWH:

Any word on what pins will fill the place holder slots?

Stay tuned! Looking to get those nailed down over the next month or so.

#93 1 year ago

But Deadpool is one of them for sure. Should be two of them at least at the show.

#94 1 year ago

Some more place holders for games have been confirmed!

No Good Gofers
JJP Pirates was replaced with Deadpool LE
Rob Zombie

Only two games left to add to the list. Once I know them for sure the website will be updated for those too!

Quoted from Crile1:

Any chance JJPOTC will get back in the lineup?

It would take a small miracle, but I will be sure to shout it from the rooftops if it makes the trip!

#106 1 year ago

Hey everyone!

We have received word from the hotel that November 8th is the last date you can lock in the $94 guaranteed show rate.

After that, they cannot guarantee that rate or that rooms will be available.

Get your reservations in now!!


#109 1 year ago

We made it onto the TNT amusements Youtube Channel! Thanks to Ken of the Cincy Pinball league for spreading the love, and thanks to toddtuckey for the shout out!

BTW, jjsmooth came up with Pincinnati. I am no where near that clever.


#111 1 year ago

Show t-shirts are being made as we speak!! Here’s a teaser of the design:

#113 1 year ago
Quoted from RWH:

When will they be available chuck?

Only available at the show and will be limited. So get to the show early Friday to make sure you get one!!

#114 12 months ago

Another sneak peak of the shirt!:

Shirts are being finalized now but wanted to show the whole thing. What does everyone think??

Shirt looks blue here, but they will be black.

#118 12 months ago
Quoted from Dantesmark:

Uuuuh... can i buy one now Chuck?

Unfortunately no. Available at the show only. We should have plenty and if we sell out at the show I will make sure and get more for people that missed out. Get there early and grab one!

#120 12 months ago

Beatles confirmed! Trent says as long as they are made in time (and they should be), Beatles will be at the show. I assume it will be the base model.

#124 12 months ago
Quoted from SuperDaveOsbourn:

Although the game is a whack-a-ball fun game, and yours looks to be an amazing restoration effort, its sadly still considered by many to be a b-game. I'm somewhere on the fence about it being a 'very good' game as TA, Ugly Mike and others have stated decades and years ago... FUN to play. December shows are kinda funky for many, too close to Xmas.

This show starts in Nov so I’d like to consider it a November show. Haha.

#128 11 months ago
Quoted from snyper2099:

Possibly that one from 38 days ago... I can't wait for some more irrelevant tidbits in another 30ish days.

Yeah I guess we will hear back from him after the show.

December 1st and 2nd is too close to Xmas! I wish my Xmas vacation lasted that long. Haha

#133 11 months ago
Quoted from LoganJK:

I'll be buying a few show and tourney tickets soon!

Thanks for the support!

#134 11 months ago

Also for people that plan to get a hotel room. Make sure to use the link on the website, or if you call mention the show. The room rate should be $94.

I don’t expect it so be a busy weekend, so I don’t think the risk of not getting a room is high, but better safe than sorry!!

#136 11 months ago
Quoted from NPO:

This show is right at the end of my Master's class. If I can get my project done in time for that class, I think I'm going to make the trek up that way. Miss being up there, and this show is worth the drive!

Sounds like a hell of a reason to get classwork done early and one hell of a reward for the hard work!!

Unofficial last place trophy
[quoted image]

Hahaha. If you can somehow make this happen, I’ll pay you for it.

#147 11 months ago
Quoted from Gryszzz:

I ain't got no ticket and I don't need no stinkin ticket.
Only one lonesome Luci, well that ain't right. She needs a friend. Guess I'll set mine up in the lobby.

Just bring it ya hillbilly. If the show doesn’t have room, just set it up in your room. We can play games for shots late night.

#150 11 months ago
Quoted from Gryszzz:

Folks gettin all pissy being told they CAN'T bring a machine.
Great problem to have eh Chuck?

Actually let’s put it on the roof. We can put Pinstadiums on it and it will be like a beacon to tell the whole country where the show is at.

#157 11 months ago

19 spots left for each tournament.

Let’s fill these things up!!

#163 11 months ago

Only like 12 tournament tickets for each tournament left!! get them while you can!

Also, in the next week or so we will release the tournament games so you all can start preparing!

I am thinking we release 2 games per day starting Monday until all 20 games are revealed. Should be fun!

#168 11 months ago

Pincinnati Friday and Saturday tournaments SOLD OUT!!! thanks everyone! if you want to be put onto a waitlist, message us here or shoot us an email.

Remember the women's event and the Gauntlet are first come first served at the show.

#172 11 months ago
Quoted from callaway15:

How many typically attend this show, and is it typically hard to get on machines you want to play on?

This is our first show, so we don’t have anything to compare it to.

I can say right now we will have close to 120 pinball machines to play.

If we sell out, and everyone is there in the show at once, there still won’t be lines.

I hope that helps!

And since tickets are limited, make sure you buy tickets before 11/20 when our presale tickets stop!!

#175 11 months ago

First two tournament games revealed!!

#177 11 months ago
Quoted from LoganJK:

Will the 20 tournament games be available to play when tournaments are not going on?

I’ll do ya one better. The tournament games will be able to play by everyone all weekend!

When we are having the tournaments the players will get in line like everyone else to play their matches.

We have limited ticket sales so that you shouldn’t have to wait very long at all to play.

Glad you mentioned that - reminds me to pack the sunglasses to play that GOT

Might not be enough. I’d suggest a welders helmet. Haha

#183 11 months ago
Quoted from Gryszzz:

Confession: I have never played Haunted House. You guys have no idea how incredibly psyched I am to finally hit that! OH BOY!

Don’t forget that the extra flippers have their own set of buttons. Took me forever to get used to it.

#185 11 months ago

We’re trying.

#192 11 months ago

Yeah I can’t wait to see that.

Also if anyone hasn’t played a Robo War. Make sure you put some plays on this one. Great game despite the weird ass art. Sounds are great too.

Talked with WeirPinball yesterday, and as of now, I will be making the trek from Florida to attend this one!!!! About a 14 hour drive and well worth it. I miss the Dayton-Cincy community.
Man, Erik, you are killing it with this show!
So yep, looking forward to being at this one for sure. Need to snag tickets tonight!


It ain’t just me man. It’s everyone. Just wait. So many good times ahead.

If you get a hotel room make sure and call. They will need to release more rooms but they are available.

Plus American pinball

I think that’s it.

#263 11 months ago


Presale tickets end 11/20. Get your passes before end of day on the 20th to ensure your attendance to Cincy’s first pinball show!

#265 11 months ago
Quoted from Rondogg:

Chuck, will any of the tournament(s) be streamed?

We’re going to try streaming the Gauntlet this year, but not the main tournaments. I need to see how the hotel internet works out this year so I can plan to have a good stream setup next year. I’m just not confident in doing a quality stream this year.

We will also try and get gameplay of all the newest games streamed from the show this year though.

#272 11 months ago
Quoted from Rondogg:

Sunday, got it. If you will go live please post to the live stream thread. If not, I'll find it and post it there.

Follow sdtmpinball and get notifications. In case I forget. If we stream it will be there.

#273 11 months ago
Quoted from fxdwg:

anyone else having issues with the code "PIN" when trying to reserve a room?

They turned it off. Call here and tell them you need the show rate of $94.

Pre sale tickets are now closed.

If you missed out, get there early on Friday (show opens at 2pm) to get your tickets!

Quoted from Colsond3:

Man Erik, this show is getting stacked!! Really debating on booking a flight if time won’t permit the drive out and back. Great job to all involved.

Hopefully you can make it!

#280 11 months ago

Spending the day getting my games all cleaned up and folded up for the show!

Let the hype begin!!

Im spending the day clearing off a space on my trophy shelf for that beautiful first place trophy.

Hell yeah! Wait until you see it in person.

#283 10 months ago

Just saw a gameplay video of the 1933 signal Jr game that will be at the show. It looks awesome! Make sure you find it and play it!

#285 10 months ago
Quoted from callaway15:

I didn't get a chance to buy tickets early on -- is it a sure thing that I would be able to get in showing up on Friday to purchase tickets for the weekend? Also, are kids, 10 and up allowed entry with tickets?

If you get there at 2 pm Friday you’ll be fine.

Every paid ticket can get one 12 year old or under in for free. They just need to pass an FBI background check to verify their age first.

Quoted from treborlicec:

I'll be there. Hoping to get off this dang wait list for the tourneys

I will do my best to accommodate more players for the tournament next year. We’ve had amazing interest this year. Crazy to think I could’ve pushed each tournament to 80 and been fine.

Quoted from Jjsmooth:

A quick reminder to everyone to please drive safely...just thinkin..[quoted image]

Haha. I’m afraid to ask you to pan out.

Quoted from Jousley:

Good luck, TwoheartedMale....would be the first time this month that someone from Michigan was victorious when they come to Ohio.

Damn. Shots fired.

I say this dispute is settled on a best of three on Signal Jr

Quoted from fxdwg:

better have the "fat guy" size...
3XL please...

Fat guy size is available. I think we have 4-5 of them. My boy Scott Vieth from Cbus needs that too.

Get here early on Friday! There are only 50-60 of these total.

Don’t worry though. We will get more after the show to get anyone that missed out.

#307 10 months ago
Quoted from estrader:

Any smaller size shirts for kids?

We have smalls and mediums too.

#310 10 months ago

Scott @weirpinball has been and continues to be one of the biggest reasons this show was even possible.

Scott was one of the first to sign up and offered his whole collection! That’s almost 30 games people. Incredible. His tech service is invaluable too. But most of all, we will just have one less Pinhead this year and that sucks. Hopefully you get back on your feet ASAP Scott so we can plan for next year! Haha

Again, without lots of guys and gals like Scott in this area, no way would I would’ve been able to be convinced this would work. Thanks again to everyone that has helped or will help in the future.

#329 10 months ago

Interest is exploding right now. We have been contacted by multiple news channels and expect every day to sell out. If people haven’t bought tickets make sure they show up at open on the day they wish to buy to get them the best shot at getting in.

Good problems to have, but I’d hate for people to miss out.

Get there early!!

#331 10 months ago

Let me check.

#333 10 months ago
Quoted from estrader:

can you buy tickets for saturday on friday?

Yes you can. So it’s best to get there early on Friday to buy whatever tickets you want. Especially Saturday. That’s really close to selling out.

#336 10 months ago

Whoa baby. Cars packed up and ready to hit the Holiday Inn tomorrow morning! Can’t wait to see this show get set up!

See everyone there! Lots of pictures to come. Remember to post lots of your pics here so we can keep weirpinball and others that couldn’t make it up to date.

Oktoberfest live now!!


#386 10 months ago

Friday’s tournament was awesome!

Congrats to Brian Shepard for taking the win! He beat the wizard mode in WCS on his way to victory. Only had 5 strikes in a 9 strikes event is impressive.

Coming in second was Derek Fugate. Really just playing some great pinball down the stretch.

Local cincy player Darren Martin in third. Very underrated player.

Speaking of underrated, metallik Larry Scott came in 4th and is an extremely underrated player.

Thanks to everyone that played! See everyone tomorrow!

That’s Linsey! She is no slouch that’s for sure.

Novus 6 should do the trick.

The Triple Crown Trophy will be going back home with us this year, but maybe YOU can be the top player of the weekend that wins ALL THREE tournaments next year?!?

Quoted from treborlicec:

I was happy to be in A division with the talent that showed up this weekend.

Being in the top 16 of 64 in any event is something to be proud of imo. We definitely had some heavy hitters there this weekend too. Thanks for playing!

#442 10 months ago

Thanks for bringing Big Game. It played really fast. Hopefully, mine will be up and running one day.

Get used to it! That will be a Pincinnati staple.

Quoted from Gryszzz:

Chuck I'm still runnin on adrenaline from this weekend. Thank you mar dude; everybody was smilin, havin the time of their lives.

Our pleasure man. We just met with the hotel and we are 99% sure we will be there again next year. We asked them if there were any complaints, they said, "well there was only one complaint. Someone was really loud Friday night and got lots of noise complaints." Me and Jerry both looked at each other and smiled and said, "Griz!" hahahaha.

#452 10 months ago
Quoted from metallik:

Gryszz's new BT speaker is hella better than the one he brought to LAX... clean sound and no distortion, even with the walls shaking. 10/10 would recommend...
Next year just put him in the rooftop suite!

I'm in the market for a new one (had the recalled Pill XL). What you got gryszzz ??

#463 10 months ago

I wanted to call out djsolzs for a second.

This righteous dude brought and amazing fish tales to the show. Then he proceeds to get an amazing offer on it, and couldn’t pass it up. Game sells. New owner takes it from the show (that’s their right).

What does someone normally do? Count the cash and go on with their weekend. Well not Adam.

Dude goes back home, gets another game and puts it in the show where his other game was.

If that’s not incredible, I don’t know what is.

These are the kinds of people we have throughout this show. We are so very lucky and we will continue to make this show better so that guys and gals like Adam want to come back year after year.

Thanks again!!
