This was my third Pintastic, and it has gotten better and better each year. Gabe and crew did a great job with the show and keeping the games going. The vendors were great to talk to and the seminars were fun and informative (thinking about building my first MAME arcade cabinet now!).
Highlights for me (besides some great games on that beautiful Strikes and Spares, Supersonic, AFMr (what an experience), Gabe's BSD, Dialed In!, and Star Wars) was just playing next to some folks experiencing pins for the first time. Got to play next to an older couple (mid-50's) playing Indy 500 and, after she played for the first time, he played and she was now telling him how to play and got so excited when he got multiball started. Also on Medieval Madness (I was playing Mousin' Around I think) a father and son got so excited when the son destroyed his first castle. They were cheering and everything. That's what this hobby is all about.
Great show, Gabe. Can't wait to come back next year!
