    Most of the guys and gals at this event last night do not post here, so I don't want to post names or locations. But, I will say the 12 games set up were the most creative I have ever seen at any pinball party.

    Have you ever played pinball (No Fear) through a periscope?

    Ever played Fish Tales through a sheet of ice?

    Ever played Luge Pinball?

    How about LOTR on a platform and a moving treadmill?

    How about Hurricane with a 60MPH wind machine blowing at you?

    Or TOM with the two targets near the ramp activating an instant tilt?

    How about a moving playfield?

    These were just a few of the events. Here is some video:

    No Fear, LOTR and Flash!

    How about WWF while in a ring!

    #6 6 years ago

    There is a high price to pay to be a pinball olympian.

    #8 6 years ago

    #9 6 years ago

    Invite me next time and I will answer yes to all of these?

    #10 6 years ago

    Should have been a points deduction for your poorly exacuted dismount.

    #12 6 years ago

    You're getting points off for your spelling

    #13 6 years ago

    Ha ! take all the points off for my spelling , I lost those points did me no good.

    #14 6 years ago

    How many people can say They ran 10mph while playing Lord of The Rings ?

    I have a couple more, but I don't want to post them without talking to the people in them first. I was nervous about posting these as I never asked permission of the owner of the games. It was an incredible event. I can't imagine what the investment in time, money and energy it took to put this on. I hope there is a summer Olympics, and I hope to be invited back.

    Quoted from bangerjay:

    Jay, did you do that on the LOTR? The thrill of victory and the agony of de "leg." ouch!

    #16 6 years ago

    Seems interesting. Hope drinking didn't affect anything. Ha.

    #17 6 years ago

    Thanks to everybody that came out, and post whatever you want. Yes, I had a little bit of trouble on my dismount from Lotr, but I ended up winning 10$, so ot was totally worth it.

    #18 6 years ago

    The events were fucking awesome! Some serious creativity and a lot of preparation went into this. Big round of applause for Jay, and Gavin. Anyone ever fix that problem with CV?

    #19 6 years ago

    Very nice. FYI you could fix that Flash if you wanted:

    #20 6 years ago

    Damn i new we left to soon,Jay was that the 10mph for 10 bucks?
    thanks for the invite, ahd a great time,lots of creativity!

    It just gets better every time. I can only imagine what the summer Olympics will hold, maybe a small trampoline or something. Had a great time Jay thanks to you and Sandy for holding such a awesome event.

    These are the medals that Jay uses (this pic is from last year) each year. They are obviously gold, silver and bronze flippers.

    I couldn't stop laughing while playing Flash.

    I couldn't stop swearing while playing ToM.

    Thanks for a great night!

    That was 'out of control.' I am talking crazy cool/difficult. Maybe you can take a picture of the luge, Fish Tales and Hurricane set-up. I don't have shots of those.

    I think next time, Jesse should bring a WOZ and you would have to play wearing ruby slippers and a dress, eh.

    As long as the hurricane machine is hitting all the right parts. lol

    #29 6 years ago

    Always a great time and a great host. Had a blast.
    Thank you sir.
    Flash was the highlight, followed closely by that $#**@! Theatre of Magic.

    #31 6 years ago

    Just have to say it was awesome that Jay made his ideas into reality . I know Gavin put some time into this as well .So just a public thank you for their work on making this a great event . I'm training hard and geting into the deer antler juice so I can be in peak physical condition. So anyone else looking to capture the middle spot on most games watch out because that's my place and I plan on keeping it that way.

    #32 6 years ago

    Did you get your pink participation medal Doug?

    #33 6 years ago

    But seriously folks, next time tune in Tokyo on Paragon
    Nipple flipper buttons.

    No , I don't want your simpathy medals . If I get a medal next time it will be because I earned it , or because I learned how to cheat better (like Nate).
