    Think TRONLE pulled off the win last time...cast your prediction, getting audits now:

    Criteria: 15 potential players/ ages- 14,16,18,22, 26, 28, 29, 44,46,50,53,55,56(me), 68,76

    Winner gets a $20 donation to Pinside ( technically I'm donating, but in the name of the pin) and bragging rights until new year.....( IMVE not in the lineup yet...still at shop)

    #2 4 years ago

    WOZ has an early lead.....Ill bump every now and then......

    #3 4 years ago

    Bump...FGY action....just sayin.....TRON staying strong ...I'm drinking way too much...

    #4 4 years ago

    bump for your thread dude ....getting drunk later myself , Merry Christmas!

    #5 4 years ago

    I guess. Woz. TSPP. Then Tron.

    #6 4 years ago

    Appreciate the bump and Merry Christmas to all!!!...recouping from pretty strong hangover, but gang doesn't come back until noon today, so should be fine...

    Not "counting" yet....however, can say WOZ, TRONLE, TZ, and TSPP were all hit pretty hard yesterday....

    To make it more interesting ( and keep bumping), I'm still donating $20 to Pinside in the name of winning Pin, AND, another $20 donation in the name of the Pinsider who posts the top 3 played ( or closest)....ties will be recognized equally ( if they picked the same top 3).

    Audits checked when everyone gone on Saturday, and Winners / donations posted Sunday....let the games continue!!

    Drinking again will fix that.

    #9 4 years ago

    I voted Woz, I think it will get more play if you count time on the pin. However, if you're talking play by number of games I would think something like IM because the games are so quick.

    #10 4 years ago

    I will go with WOZ, TronLE, TAF

    Mixed several dark liquors and almost crossed the line (Whew)!!!

    Agreed....think just beer and Scotch today.....

    Sadly, my IM is at the shop ( just got it, and didn't get it " lineup ready" in time)....I'm sure it would have faired well...haven't noticed any long ball times or big games yet, but today will tell a lot ....

    #13 4 years ago

    Last evening bump.....we had a period of about 90 minutes where all 8 machines were rolling.....some family have left, some more coming tomorrow , and staying w the bourbon was the safe answer for me tonight.....post predictions.....there were some long games I witnessed on TSPP, and WOZ, TRON was kicking serious ass....think quite a few got afraid of it after awhile.....All the others were being played solid....anxious to see the #'s tomorrow ......mark

    #14 4 years ago

    Whew...they have all left.....a couple of points:

    a) Been decades since I've consumed so much alcohol in 3 day period ....note to one's self....do not mix dark liquors in large doses.....a few close calls, but nothing bad

    b) All machines played flawlessly, only 2 stuck balls (my plastic protector on TZ outlane a little tight for Powerball once, and Stewies pinball on it's mini apron)

    c) 171 total plays ( I didn't play, just helped) respectable for a bunch of non pinheads

    d) No one got any of the boards ( didn't really think that was going to happen)

    e) WINNER - most plays - TRONLE- no surprise here..big eye candy, and never lets me down on shortest game times in my lineup ( we'll see if that changes when IM moves in)

    f) SECOND- A THREE WAY TIE!!! WOZ, TSPP, AND ( surprise ) FGY!!! all had identical play "s, and longer game times than TRON. If I had to guess....TSSP had the ball on the table the longest.

    g) WOZ easily won the " wow factor" of the event....everyone just crowded around to watch

    h) lowest plays- I refuse to post, as it would hurt its feelings...no one likes to be last....Ill let you guess

    I) SUMMARY- great holiday, great food, fellowship, pin action, and excessive alcohol . My TRONLE is making a $20 donation to Pinside , Luckydogg420 and Porkchopexpress share the credit for the other $20 donation ( both had the right titles, both had the winner flipped, but equally)

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS PINSIDERS ( much rest and a bit of detox needed here).....out.....Mark

    That's amazing! When I had my TronLE it was the least played game at my parties. Some times nobody even turned it on. But it did have very short ball times.... compared to some of the other DMDs.

    I think it had a lot to do with:

    a) Mine is highly blinged...and there were a couple of the guys that were determined to get a long game on it ( foolish)...but they got bit by the " one more game" bug.
    b) ( not taking away from TRON) but it is positioned right next to WOZ in my lineup ( TZ on the other side). It definitely benefitted from the crowd watching someone playing WOZ.

    I was surprised that FGY got the plays it did....figured SM was a shoe in for the top 3, but it barely missed

    #17 4 years ago

    Mine was as brutal as they come. Might have had something to do with it. But once people find the classics out in the garage they tend to gravitate there .

    #18 4 years ago

    Only two pins at the house this year but a couple of upright arcades too. WOZ beat my WhoDunnit by about 4 to 1. WhoDunnit got some breaks between games but WOZ never stopped while the company was here. Pretty fun to watch a few first timers play pinball. And just for the hell of it I asked all the first timers what they thought the machines cost... average was, WhoDunnit 5/6 hundred dollars and WOZ 11/12 hundred dollars. Quite possibly to much eggnog was had. Have a great New Year All !!

    Yep...one of my brothers decided they wanted a WOZ.....asked how much.....a silence fell on the room when I told him...he seemed a bit staggered ( very well could have been the Scotch at that point) but didn't rule it out....I sent him a link....we'll see....

    Yes, that's the same exact sound I heard too. Silence

    I hope you educated them later that used machines are considerably less. I think my family thinks I'm crazy as well for being in this expensive hobby but I'm always trying to get them into it.

    AC/DC premium was the winner at our house, second was GOTLE

    I gave them a " ballpark", reminding them it wasn't only money but TIME invested as well.....

    " expensive hobby" is a relative term ( to disposable income) imo....

    Nice collection......glad to have other "Pin for the holiday" showdowns, as opposed to horseshoes or something....

    #27 4 years ago

    STLE was the winner here...I think. My cousin's friend from work spent Christmas with us and she had never played pinball before. She played a ton of Volley and Sinbad before moving on to STLE and ACDC. She played for a solid two hours. Just for reference she is roughly 50 years old and was born and raised in China. The rest of us mostly played STLE, HH, C37, WOZ and ACDC Premium. The Galaga/Ms Pacman also got a workout for once!

    After reading the Bourbon thread I realized there are many big wigs that collect pinball machines and I feel like a man with alopecia

    Nah.....while there are deep pockets for some on here (I'm sure), It's reassuring to know the hobby is accessible to all ....I watch Mecum Auctions every time I think I have real money.........
