    Anyone know which PAPA event is best for non competitors? I want to go to the event

    which has the most games to play; EM'S and up to modern games..

    It used to be that PAPA was the better option as many more games were available for play. During Pinburgh, many more games are taken up by the competition. However, with the new Pinburgh next year, I don't know which will be the better option.

    Pinburgh generally makes the most games available for competition, while PAPA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS has many more games set up as an arcade for token play.

    From what I've read about ReplayFX, it sounds like you could have an extended weekend of fun without even considering the Pinburgh tournament. But a lot of that other stuff is non-pinball. I'm not sure how many pins will be available for regular attendees to play.

    Next year nearly all the games will be available on Saturday & Sunday during the ReplayFX show. The games are in use Thurs/Fri for Pinburgh then are released "to the arcade" on Friday night. (http://replayfx.org/schedule/full-schedule/)

    Replayfx will definitely be the event to attend. There will be pins in the free play area and then more will be added once the Pinburgh tourney ends Friday night. Not all the PAPA machines are being used in Pinburgh and collectors are invited to "lend their games" for the event.

    Quoted from Troz:

    Yep. ReplayFX was intentionally designed so that the vast majority of games would be available for casual fans / collectors for a large portion of the weekend. Also, don't forget that attendees are encouraged to contact us and bring their own games if they would like to join in that way. The festival will include the entire PAPA collection plus any games brought and shared by others.
