Wow! That's just jaw-dropping to have so many rare games at one event. So glad Erin and I signed up for this. Steve, thanks to you and whomever else for putting this together! At Pinball Land Robert said that you had a nice collection but wow! Lots of love for Python

Erin and I had a phenomenal time: fantastic hosts, a great group of people all having fun, rarest of rare games, plenty of yummy food, all for a great cause. Wow.

Quoted from pinsane:

I completely agree with vicjw66, Zingy Bingy is too unfinished to be included in any release from the Pinball Arcade folks. Zingy Bingy is indeed amusing. The few rules implemented work well, and many attending the party commented on how well the game shoots. The game has importance from a historical point of view. But it is a very early realization with only a couple of rules sketched out, no sound package, no artwork beyond the playfield and the lost backbox maquettes and no dots package. It is not yet a playable game.

Not yet, but I'm fully expecting to see the Zingy Bingy Adam & Eve edition by year's end!

It certainly would be exciting to see Python's vision for this come to fruition.

Quoted from Aurich:

So very true, but only if the owner is generous enough to open up said collection to the community. For all the rare things you have there's nothing museum like about your games, they're meant to be played. Which in my eyes is perfect, because these are after all games, 'meant to be played' is in their DNA. But not everyone would let their one of a kind games sit out in the open for people to bang on.

Meant to be played for sure. At the event most of the machines had the key in them.

I was playing the Pin2k Playboy and a ball got stuck. There was another ball also stuck. Key in it, but I felt a little odd about pulling the glass on a prototype so I found Steve. We went to the machine. While opening the machine he told me to feel free to open up the games to release any stuck balls. Of note, Steve and I are only vaguely acquainted with one another, having met briefly just a couple of weeks prior to the event.

It's one thing to have philosophical musings. It's a totally different thing to apply those as beliefs in a tangible, pragmatic way. +1 Steve and family.
