I'll be there!
Quoted from BarryJ:
The Oktoberfest we will be bringing is on the line as we speak...
Nirmal and I will be driving there so we will have merch and some odds and ends for sale, and of course... If you challenge us on either of our games and win, you get a prize of our choosing!
Email me firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any special requests for our Fireside Chat.
Barry, thanks so much for coming! I'm really looking forward to playing Oktoberfest!
Pins flying in after 5 PM. Selection of really nice pins.
Also, Beatles in the house!
Pincinnati has been a fantastic show! I really appreciate the support that I've seen from all the local pinball enthusiasts. Here are my highlights so far:
From the new pin area:
1. Monster Bash Remake is gorgeous. The iterative process of CGC to re-imagine some of the best pins and make them better continues to impress me. I may have the wife on the hook for the MBr too!
2. The Beatles pin takes everything great about Seawitch and improves it (especially if you like the Beatles theme). I found the re-designed loop shoot to be a great design change, and the optical spinners are very satisfying feel. I know many (including me) has been vociferous about the price but I really enjoyed everything game I played on it.
3. Alice Cooper. Man, this game is not what I expected, but holy cow this is a fun pin. It took me a while to get a feel for the shots (and there's a lot of them), but it had a tremendously great feel with fun modes. Also, having spookycharlie close by to explain things was very helpful! Ha!
4. Oktoberfest is the pin I played the least due to always been 2-3 people deep when I walked by. First, there's some challenging shots in the game (the left ramp from the top right flipper comes to mind immediately). Overall, I like the theme and I'm really hoping someone close by picks up this pin to play. My only "nitpick" is the oddity of going from Bavarian music to rock music. It's just a bit odd.
From those who brought games, here's the stand out for me:
1. JJP POTC. Actual quote from last night. "I don't know what the hell I'm supposed to do or shoot, but man I'm having fun." Beautiful game.
2. Dipsy Doodle. One of my favorite EMs. Almost rolled it last night. Nothing beats the doodle bug.
4. Larry & Phoebe's awesome collection with battle pins and the prettiest Fathom you'll ever see.
Quoted from NPO:
LOL, dude, KingPin was 20+ deep at TPF. Prolly a solid 10+ deep on POTCJJP and "the sky's the limit" on ACNC as it was revealed right there at the show.
That wasn't a complaint on my part. I spent most of my time volunteering at the event so I couldn't make my way back there.
Quoted from chuckwurt:
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.
And that game was his super awesome WH2O, which I could have played all show!
