    Now that our good friends at Yegpin have completed another successful event in Edmonton, I thought we'd get back to updating you on VFO. We've just confirmed that Houdini will be at Vancouver FlipOut 2017 (Sep 22-24) along with designer Joe Balcer. We're also thrilled to have Jolly Backer from American Pinball in attendance as well. We're looking forward to everyone getting a chance to play the exciting new release Master Of Mystery!

    Great call! Love this, for space and layout, but mostly so when I run up the stairs I can channel Rocky theme music. The only question I have is where are you gonna put all these wonderful pins!
