Quoted from coreyhulse:
We took the lessons learned from PinFest and applied them to York and plan to keep running the MatchPlay Event at York. Zac and Jason Z did so well on TOTAN last year that we now have an IFPA-approved rule in place on how to deal with runaway games where multiple people save the princess multiple times.
Would like to trade a like new Rottendog (v1) Williams System 3-7 combo MPU/Driver board for a rebuilt system 7 MPU+driver board set. (I want to do some rom modding....)
Looking for a gottlieb aux lamp board (the 10 lamp strobe), used in volcano, mars, black hole, spirit, etc. Untested fine. 8/10 transistors are blown on mine
Quoted from Pinsforfun:
I have a question? I see a lot of posts " for sale, I can bring to Pinfest with a deposit". I don't understand this thinking. I have sold many games at Pinfest and York and 90% of those games went to non Pinside members. You have one of the largest gatherings of pinball buyers on the east coast and yet your only advertising to maybe 20% of them. If all those machines would be at the show I believe a majority of them would sell. Which means you have cash in your pocket for a new machine. One of them might even be one of those "I can bring to Pinfest with a deposit" if it was at the show.
I bring a game or two every year to most area shows. Not one has ever sold. Meanwhile I presell a game or two without issue. Without a guarantee of free space coming back (to hold my new purchases), I'm not bringing extra games on 'hopes'.
Does anyone have a spare corner of their booth or something where I could leave a game Thurs night to mid day Friday? It's getting picked up then, but my truck isn't covered so I'd rather have it inside somewhere overnight...
Show was fun as always. Played a lot of older games I hadn't seen before. Brought down a stack of cash and sold my games for more cash, but didn't see anything interesting that wasn't overpriced
Some really nice games on the floor, many that I thought were either hard tops or cleared, couldn't tell. Also a lot that barely functioned. Flippers I have a hard time believing they were even attached to the playfield, flippers clearly misaligned, etc. A lot of games sitting with no credits too. Really wanted to play that trident and volcano but they were never playable when I came by.
Thanks to whoever brought that bad girls. I enjoyed one last year and after playing this one it's now firmly on my want list.
