1) Brew a fresh pot of coffee.
2) Start reading.
If you think going to your local city hall to get some stickers is a pain in the butt, check this out. I am looking over a 2001 copy of a manual (pic attached) for proposals to put games in the Minneapolis (MSP) airport. Your proposal must be no greater than 15 pages in length. This covers both Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 (Lindbergh and Humphrey)
There is a lot of fascinating reading and a lot of dry reading. You get some of the obvious stuff like "green sticker only" games.
Yes, there is even a page of past coin drop performance and split percentage between the operator and the airport. Also yes, since this was published in 2001 you see the staggering numbers in September.
The back portion of this manual is extremely dry which is a manual that basically applies to anyone doing business in the airport. What type of carpeting, lighting, signage you can have -- or not. A good portion revolves around news stands and food vendors like how to hang your menus.
I'm thinking about converting this into a digital copy so others can appreciate this as a historical item. However I don't have any way of hosting this online. It would probably be the equivalent of 2 or 3 pinball manuals. I'm looking through it to see if there is any reason why I couldn't do this ie copyright issues but haven't seen anything so far. It was probably a public document for anyone to grab for whoever wanted to put games in. I'd probably cover up names, phone numbers, e mails etc and there are a lot of them for inspectors and permits. There are blueprints of the airport in here but they don't seem very revealing of unknown information and probably obsolete.
