    Come see my custom BOZO the crazy clown inside my Metallica premium at Pintastic 2017! Notice his shirt. Amazing transformation MacLean from Pinside did on my sparky!

    Modeled after Lloyd, obviously.

    If anyone is going to pintastic from Rhode Island and can stop by Providence to bring games, I have one or two games for the free play area. Just no vehicle to move them.

    #104 1 year ago

    I've never been to one of these events. I was told that between Allentown and Pintastic, Pintastic would be better for a newbie like me. I want to bring a game for the free play area. What do I need to do?

    Keep an eye on the Facebook page and web Site. We will have a new game registration page on the web site up and running soon. Lots of great perks for people who bring games. Thank you very much.

    Does the hotel have better in room wifi and non purple water in the bathrooms now?

    Lol...

    #109 1 year ago
    Quoted from HoneyBadger:

    Does the hotel have better in room wifi and non purple water in the bathrooms now?

    Most hotels have congestion issues on WiFi networks. It's not really avoidable when there are hundreds of guests all trying to stream video or music simultaneously. Then on top of the bandwidth issue, another part of the problem is that most off-the-shelf wireless access points that you would find in an electronics store have trouble communicating when there are 20-30 users connected to it. So, when it comes down to it, you have bandwidth limitations, equipment limitations, and poor network design & management--all of which take a decent amount of money to correct in an environment with a lot of usage. There isn't really a "quick fix", unfortunately.

    Purple water?

    I'm sure I can get them there if I can get healthy before the show - right now I am expected out of action 6-8 weeks with a strain back - sounds like plenty of time - but hard to get better when I have to keep working and doing everything - I'm sure I will be okay by then.

    thanks ed

    The hotel has made some inprovments on the wifi service I was told. This is the first I'm hearing of purple water.

    You just tell them that the mushrooms are maple flavoured, and they toss 'em back like bon bons.

    Opinions needed on my Williams SkI Club...not a lot of these out there apparently, which is one reason I'm considering bringing it. I'm certainly willing to shop it out and bring it....but then there's the playfield. It's seen much better days.

    Worth it or leave it home?

    Wow that looks very cool. People love the older games and if it's rare than even better.

    #118 1 year ago

    Gabe is spot on. Bring it. I wouldn't mind giving it a spin since I've never seen or played one.

    #119 1 year ago

    Well...I think that sums it up. Playfield won't be pretty (unless someone has an alpine club/ski club playfield lying around) but I agree with the cool factor. From the flyer, that yellow area at the bottom of the backglass is lit by a fluorescent tube and could be customized with the name of the location...hmm....I may just have to make a pintastic 2017 insert.

    Thanks man that's awesome! The game registration page will be live by the end of this week. That's were you would go to register games for free play.

    What about rates for vendor area booth's? What is the cost to enter machines for free play? (If any)

    Also, how do you arrange the games in "free play"? Is it first come first serve, or do you have a method for arrangement?

    I may bring machines for free play as well as "project machines".

    Thanks

    Indoor Vendor area booths are $185 for the weekend. You get 2 weekend passes with that purchase.

    Their is no cost to enter games in free play. Actually we give you a free pass as long as your game is in free play. You also get entered into all the raffles were you can win part of $3500 in cash and prizes. Put over 8 games in free play and you get a limited embroidered hat and a $50 gift certificate to the on site restaurant.

    The free play coordinator Dave M usually arranges the games by era. Em's and wood rail along the back wall and newer games to the middle with a good mix on the edges.

    No, but you do get the first pick at a "flea" market spot.

    Sorry, my girlfriend was into some kinky stuff. We were bathing in wine. You must of been below me.

    #138 1 year ago

    I just went online for curiosity to check room availability. It shows no rooms available for those days. So I just spoke to the front desk and did book a room under the Pintastic room block. If you are going, it's best to call them.

    Yes please make sure you book under the Pintastic pinball room block at $110 a night. Don't get left out of the host hotel. Year 1 it sold out over a month before the show. Second year I bumped up the rooms by 80 rooms and we still sold out a month before.

    Pintastic 2017 is very excited that our poster and T-Shirt will be designed by an amazing artist!

    Quoted from mattmarr:

    She's a beaut. Thanks for moving it into the Freeplay Area after the Vendor Hall closed down last year too.

    Hopefully no breakdowns this year....but rumor has it we may have parts in the freeplay hall with Brian?

    I like to try and try being the key word to keep a lot of games from an era together. It makes it a little easier for players....that being said I also try to keep owners games together...it does simplify things a bit.....

    You did a great job last year thank you!

    #147 1 year ago

    I'm happy I can bring my games and meet everyone that chats on the Northeast forum. I went Pintastic last year for the first time and wanted to purchase a couple pins to play with friends and family members
