    Quoted from rmarket:

    We've floated an idea similar to yours and the response was underwhelming. One issue is that as small as the Pinball community is, it is difficult to find judges could be viewed as neutral. The door prizes potentially benefit all attendees and not just a handful, so we keep doing them. We increased the number of door prizes after we couldn't continue the game giveaways. We are considering many options. We are considering a drawing for cash or a prize for those that preregister and keep their game there all weekend. (We need to verify what is legal and acceptable) What is now happening on Saturdays is what happened previously on Sundays and is the primary reason there is no show on Sunday anymore.

    For myself, I like to share my games, and what I enjoy most is guys seeing something I have done and getting the enthusiasm to put some time into one of their games to make it nice.

    We had a good turnout of some nice games at Allentown. Allentown handed out ribbons. Not sure how the scoring was done, I think they judged in categories, em, ss, dmd. Even though there was no monetary payout, or prizes, it's still pretty cool getting a ribbon.

    If you have a nice game and its sitting in your basement collecting dust......bring it to a show. Yes you will have a problem, (something will always show up), and you will probably have a mark or scratch on it when it gets home, but the "thanks for bringing it" statements always overcome any switch problem or issue you will have.

    looking forward to next year....

    That was really generous, I'd be soo nervous hauling/sharing something that spectacular!

    Quoted from Pinball_Nate:

    Just watched Todd's video about Black Hole and Critical Mass. It's unfortunate that something wasn't set-up "formally" for the two individuals involved in their construction to talk a bit about the machines and explain exactly what they are. I wasn't aware of the significance of both of these when I was at the show.
    Even if a small microphone and speaker, and a dry-erase board announcing the time of the presentation were the only means of presentation, I think people would have enjoyed hearing a small talk about both games - that Black Hole was amazing.
    This might be something that could move the York show further along as far as things that are offered to see there.
    Just a constructive thought, I am not criticizing - I love the show and have seen it's positive progress already over the years!!

    I had a chance to talk with and take a close look at CM with the owner right after tearing down. Unbelievable work with that game. He even made a full manual for it. I would have definitely attended a little seminar or short presentation of the story on some of these games.

    Another game that was super interesting but I didn't get a chance to talk with the owner, was the wood rail with the LCD screen in the back box.
