Looking forward to making this my first pinball show.
Don't forget Ikea around the corner as well. On second thought, scratch that. If she buys anything at Ikea there won't be room for pins on the way home.
Of some of the machines that I had never played, the game that I found surprisingly more fun than I anticipated was WOF. I was ready not to like it, but found myself playing many games on it and stopping to play it when passing buy on multiple occasions. It helped that it almost never was busy. I could never hit that skill shot. It was a fun way to wait for TOTAN to free up.
I found that FT wasn't as much fun as I was expecting, although I expect it would have been better if I could have heard it. The machines around it were much louder and drowned it out. The headphones on some games really helped in that environment, although it kind of removed the social aspects of the show. The FT outlanes were ball hungry and the lightning flippers took a little getting used to. I'll have to give FT another chance some other time and place.

Did you know the rules?
I had a good enough understanding of the rules as I had watched the PAPA tutorial recently in preparation for the show. I really think the noise kept me from experiencing it where I could give it a fair evaluation.
I was very grateful to have the rules for Safe Cracker explained to me by a nice pinhead at the show as I really got into that game. Without a brief tutorial that game could have been very confusing. I definitely want that game now.
