    After a very successful time at TPF, we are going to have a booth at Pintastic.

    Anyone recommend a nearby hotel or two?

    Also, if anyone is bringing a hobbit or woz, we have some lighting mods we can supply for free if you are willing to display them in your game.

    We also have some under Cabinet lighting we can give away for some modern sterns (non spike) and a few BW games Like funhouse and sttng. Contact me for info.

    If anyone is willing to put a game in my booth on free play, I will mod it for them free (under cab lights, trough and backboard lights, flasher mods, back box mod, etc.). Some games are better modded that others so that will factor in. Contact me if you are interested. We are modding out a pinsiders Met Pro for Pinfest.

    thanks to all those who responded, I think we are going to have a GB premium on free play in our booth. i'll get in touch with those who responded and give out some free mods for their games at the show.

    We are gearing up for the show next week and will have a booth in the vendor hall. We should have most of our mods for sale at the show, but if anyone wants anything specific, better to preorder as we will not have unlimited quantities on hand. We won't have any backbox mods at the show unless preordered. We can give a discount if multiple mods are purchased.

    Thanks and looking forward to our first time at the show and first time in Sturbridge. We are also heading there a day early to hit nearby six flags.

    Quoted from dannunz:

    Kids tournament is in the vendor hall from 2pm to 4pm Saturday. Twelve and under each kid gets 3 chances for best score on a 2 ball game. Pintastic staff will be present taking down scores. Winner gets a ribbon and I'm putting up some cash 3rd place $20 second place $30 and 1st place $50

    Which games? I though WOZ was one of them.

    Quoted from dannunz:

    It's on 1 game undecided yet.

    My collection is up to date, select one of those...

    Anyone bringing a Baywatch to the show? Might have a mod for you if you are.

    #902 2 years ago

    We spent yesterday at six flags New England, what a nice place with no lines! Pintastic is just 40 mins away. We will be setting up around midday. Playfield mods, undercab lights, backboard lights, trough lights, battery holders and more...oh, and we will have a modded GB premium in our booth, courtesy of DaWezl, on free play, stop by and play a few games.

    Great show, a lot of awesome titles. Vendor hall is going to rock tomorrow, and yes star wars is here!

    Vip area has one of the nicest bsd I've ever seen. Crowd thinned in the vip area around 11 so it was easier to get on games, tftc, tz, rbion, gnr, Tom, met prem, twd prem and quite a few others. Bsd on the main floor played well too. Overall, the first day of free play was very nice, many games I've never played before.

    Thanks to all who brought them.

    There will be a couple of star wars games in the vendor hall, a full lineup of newer stern games from automated plus dialed in, hobbit and woz are there, GB premium in our booth, tspp, CV, gnr, jm, afmr, sm and many others all in vendor hall!

    If you are on the fence about coming, get off it.

    Quoted from embryonjohn:

    Man did that food fly out of the VIP buffet. It was a tale of the have and have nots. People piled 20 plus wings on their plate, a sandwich, pizza, brats and so on. On one plate... For one person...
    and the rest were scrum'n for the parsley garnish. Me, I got the next to last slice of pizza and bourbon

    This was a bit disappointing to us. Having to man a booth from 10am to 9 pm gives us little time to eat and we were looking forward to the vip food. We were among the have nots and drove to a local restaurant for dinner, no big deal. We didn't know gabe ordered pizza until later on. We heard that many of those same people who piled on food at the buffet were among those also eating the pizza. I think a way to handle this going forward is to 1) not have food, 2) hand out food tickets with the passes or 3) limit food to vendors only or give vendors first dibs.

    Growing pains and in no way blaming Gabe. The show has been run very well and we are very happy with it.

    We got back a few hours ago and we are all pretty exhausted. It was a really fun show. Vendor traffic was down relative to Allentown and tpf, not entirely sure why, but it still was a great time. Met many pinsiders I didn't previously know, played a lot of games I never played before, including many that Brian brought. My kids kept pestering jjp and ZY for autographs, which they were really great about. My younger son picked up a pinball 3000, or whatever it's called and is currently assembling it, and thinking how he can mod it with lights.

    If I had only one suggestion to make to improve the show, besides the food issue, it would be to eliminate the free play room and move everything into a single room. I think the vibe will be better and it may help the vendors more. Would be tighter, but so what, I'm sure we all have cramped basements and would survive.

    Hope many of you were able to play the GB prem we had in our booth with the backbox and other mods on it. It was played nearly nonstop and had roughly 375 plays. GC was 1.5 bil and my score, which was #1, was 930 mil I think.

    Hope we get a lot of follow up biz from the show, we put a lot into it and all the shows we attend. I've got several back box mod orders I need to fill plus a few other things so this week will be busy on top of my day job. I'll be in Chicago Wednesday night and will be at HQ River North for dinner and more pinball.

    Thanks to all who made the show happen, really a nice job! Over and out...

    Almost forgot, was great meeting Dan from project pinball and learning all about their organization, what an amazing and awesome thing they are doing. I'd urge you all to check them out, buy a t shirt and help less fortunate kids or those dealt a bad hand get exposed to pinball and it's therapeutic magic.

    Quoted from markp99:

    Thanks for bringing your nice GB. My son and I gave it a lot of plays. . Having that pin a bit off to the side allowed shorter lines and a bunch of many-in-a-row plays. The other vendor room machines were mobbed in comparison.

    It was provided by DaWezl, but glad you liked it, played awesome all weekend long.

    Pintastic kids korner and kids tournament line.

    My kids loved this, they were over there a lot. Thanks for making this so family friendly!

    Quoted from Shredso:

    I'm pretty sure it sold for $4,700. I bid up to $4,200 and bailed.

    I think it was $4650.

    Quoted from beelzeboob:

    Your loss. Sound like you're only trying to go to one type of show, and that can get boring pretty quickly. Pintastic is the ONLY show that my whole family gets excited about going to, and it gets better every year. To each his own, I suppose.

    Couldn't agree more. There was something for everyone at the show, seminars, new games, old games, tournaments, kids activities, vendors, etc. we didn't spend a minute at any of the hotel amenities, no pool or lake, just pinball. The row of system 11 games should on its own be enough for any pinhead to attend.
