To all Pinsiders that own or are familiar with Gottlieb games designed by Wayne Neyens, please send him a birthday card. He will be 103 on July 29, 2021 and he appreciates getting cards from the folks that enjoy his games. It would be great if you include a photo of yourself and family with one of his games you own and any comments you wish to add.
The attached photo is Wayne on his 102nd birthday with an award given to him by Pacific Pinball Museum on his 100th birthday and with a score feature that can add a point on each July 29. I will post pictures of Wayne & the award showing 103. Queen of Hearts is his favorite game so I used that as a game link. As many of you know I could have entered 146 unique Wayne Neyens designs that went into production. If someone owns a College Daze (his first game) that needs to be added to the Pinside archive.

His address:

Wayne E. Neyens
313 Leatherwood Circle
Mountain Home, AR 72653

Thanks,

Will

Remarkable! We wish him well...

Will - has Wayne ever shared the secret of his longevity with you? Genes?

I remember when the guys from PPM gave him this awesome Birthday Trophy on his 100th birthday!! It was an honor and a privilege to be there and to get to play his Spirit of 76 with him on that day!! Hopefully will get to speak with him this year on his 103rd!! 37962593_2206040229424891_1717007141870501888_n (resized).jpg 37945965_2206042842757963_5167993349658902528_n (resized).jpg37958677_2206039622758285_1659433491814678528_n (resized).jpg

I sure hope I'll be able to play pinball if I make it to 100. He'll, if I can still stand up I'll be happy....

I'll be at the Allentown Pinfest, and will surely remember the day.
God bless him. He's a living legend!
