    Quoted from 1974DeltaQueen:

    I'm wondering if the 4th of July being so close will decrease or increase the attendance ?

    Bingo.

    I'm taking the family on a vacation that week out of the country. Otherwise I was planning on attending to sell and hopefully buy some game(s).

    As far as I can tell people are buying 3 day VIP passes for their whole family at the same time. Lots of them, so I'm thinking they are planning a vacation around the show. The 4th of July is moving closer each year to the show and in 2019 we will be forced to move it one week back or forward. Will see how it all plays out.

    You'll have to adjust like Ivan does because Mother's Day is usually lurking on the same weekend as Pinfest

    We are not just working around the 4th of July. Their are other local events that need to be considered. Mostly the Brimfield fair were a that whole area gets taken over by antique crazies. Right now its the week after Pintastic. So we are waiting for them to make a move and they will soon.

    I don't think Ivan ever changes the Allantown show dates. Its always the first weekend in May I believe.

    ... Mostly the Brimfield fair where the whole area gets taken over by antique crazies.

    Thats funny, I wonder if they think the same thing about us, i.e. the pinball crazies!

    Always 1st full weekend in May I believe. Mother's day is Sunday, no show that day anyway..

    Quoted from Butch2099:

    Yeah last year it was Mother's Day weekend. I always drive up to Maine to see my mom on Mother's Day. I lucked out last year and she had to work it. Saw her the next weekend.

    You drive up my way might be worth shooting me a message if you have a little time before going home.

    Use to live up there. Still own an apartment building on biddeford. I try to catch people when I can when I'm there. Usually lots to take care of and lots of family to see. Use to go to sabattus for disc golf when I lived there.

    ----VENDOR BOOTH UPDATE----

    As of today we only have 7....10' by 10' booth remaining out of 55 booths in the vendor hall. We still have one premium booth and one standard booth left in the free play room. If you want to end at Pintastic 2017 please do not hesitate reserve your spots today. Go here to reserve. https://pintasticnewengland.com/exhibitor-2/

    #215 2 years ago

    I plan on bringing several EM's for free play. Hope to see some classics there.

    Quoted from Playdium:

    I think New England collectors pride them selves on what EM games they bring for free play. They are not just old beat up machines. Most of them the last 2 years have been mint restored pieces.

    Of course we will be running our best in show competition again for bragging rights. This year we will be having some more custom awards. Should be very cool.

    #217 2 years ago

    I may have a couple newer pins that not many have played coming to the show in not for sale status. Bop2.0 and something else is in the works......

    #218 2 years ago

    Do it!
    BoP 2.0 in Free Play would be the shiz!

    Only thing I can see from that picture is it's a blue cabinet.

    We have added a few new people to the team this year. Joel Guzman is our new graphic designer. Also Andy Stevens is our new programmer. Of course Gerard is still over seeing the whole web site design and operation. We are very lucky to have so many talented people on our team.

    If we brought our linked pair of NBA fastbreaks and set them up to take money for charity would people be willing to pay to play them linked? Would set them up in the vendor hall next to us in the tournament area.

    how about a 50/50 charity tournament on those?

    Good idea Eric.

    #244 2 years ago
    Quoted from dannunz:

    Good idea Eric.

    Linked fastbreaks are a funny beast. Hard to envision a high score contest that goes all weekend on linked games. We just did a head to head bracket on them but that doesn't fit in a show enviorment.

    What about a team tournament. It's a times head to head match against your partner. You add both of your scores together at the end of the game. That's the score you submit for the contest. The one who actually scored the higher score of the match just gets bragging rights over their partner if they win the top prize. Maybe I can set it all up on matchplay.events for selfie picture submissions of the scores and leaderboards.

    How's that sound to everyone. Each game set to 1$ a play? So a team score submission costs 2$ total.

    Anyone know if multimorphic is going to make it this year?

    Ya I think people would. I know I would!!

    I am at the airport jumping on a plane to the Texas Pinball Festival! Why do I do it every year? So I can bring the best speakers, vendors and most unique games to Pintastic! That's Why.
