    Jack is pretty far from being an idiot.

    He is pretty sharp.

    He builds up a large customer base in North America and Europe.

    Coin op is in a slump and he has people with money wanting to buy stuff and he doesn't have much to sell.

    So he starts his own company to fill a need - have something to sell to the customers he has.

    Quoted from Whysnow:

    I agree. Threads that make me wonder how many accounts Gary Stern/ Stern employees have on Pinside.

    None. They have better things to do.

    Quoted from DCFAN:

    I have to think that some of the full-time employees are building some of the machines at this point, even if some of the parts are still waiting for delivery. I would guess that a team of four people could build 12 to 15 games in a week once they have worked out how to manage difficult parts, and especially considering that wire bundles, lights, coil assemblies, and cabinet set-up are probably mostly done by suppliers.

    I don't know if the plan has changed. At one point they were going to hand assemble the first games to learn the steps.

    Then hire 15 people and train them. Then go into production.

    Quoted from RobertG:

    Who gets these "practice" games? Will they go to the first buyers, or maybe they will be the ones put out on location.

    No idea. Have to ask Jack.
