    There's no olives on the menu at Olive Garden! Go figure…

    My man! This thread is showing promise!
    Here is a little FLIR action, could you imagine wearing a set of these IR goggles to a pinball show? talk about nightmare fuel!

    I have been on the fence about buying a FLIR camera. That just sealed the deal!

    Anyone that brought a game... out of curiosity, How many plays did it get?

    The lines were pretty incredible. I understand it with the new ones, but I also had to stand in line to play a Munsters Pro and Gottlieb Merry Go Round and most everything else at peak hours.

    MGR was being played by a bunch of young teens who just kept going. And quite honestly, if they are getting that much fun out of a 1960 EM, I have no problems coming back later.

    Right up there with waiting on the guy in the Nascar shirt to finish up on Dale Jr. You go, sir! Ill be back.

    Anyway, I played 85 new (to me) machines. Which is pretty good. A little less than a couple days at Next Level.
    And the people playing them seemed to be quite good. I came in on ball 2 on a couple guys playing Metallica, and it was still a 20 minute wait!

    Thanks to everyone bringing machines, especially the rare ones!

    I would tell you, but I sold all 3 that I brought! (Mando Pro, ST Pro, Houdini)

    Very cool, thanks for posting. As 10 of those were from me.......

    My custom league of legends pin had 410 games started, but still working on seeing how many players each game was. Will be somewhere around 500ish. Pretty awesome!

    287 plays on a 1934 World’s Series.

    I know you probably want game statistics for this years TPF but my Munsters Premium in 2019 got 512 games. I brought a arcade video game this year and it doesn’t have a counter on it

    Just as a point of comparison, the biggest game counts I ever saw were from Chicago pinball expos back around '99-03, when Mike kept the hall open Fri 6pm straight thru Sunday load out (plus the Thurs night). I'd usually see 700-900 plays, depending on how popular and/or difficult the game was.

    Big queues don't really boost the game count, only expanded hours will get that play meter rolling.

    I think your years might be off...I think it might have started with 2011 or so...I have audits from our games from 2012 at Expo, TAF had over 1,034, AFM had over 1,051 and SM had 995...I have numbers from 2015 I think, Star Light had 893, AFM had 1,076 and Metallica had 1,141. So we had multiple times where our games had over a thousand plays on them after the all night for multiple nights started...and we had to re build flippers after every show and tear them down and clean them good (we do that every show anyway but not re-build flippers each time).

    Thought I would just post this here for posterity.

    My Foo Fighters premium got 450 plays. Now it was tucked in the back center of the Marco area so probably didn’t get as many and those that were on the outside rosettes. Still looks new after a clean and wax!

    With the lines to play those games I would of thought it would be more. Curious on how many flips the flippers did.

    Thanks for sharing

    Thank you for exhibiting your game. All those games were available to play because of buyers like you!
