Quoted from PinballSTAR:
... Or other legit distributors near you... Buddy in VA, Gary in MI, Jesse in IN, Chris in WI, and others I don't know as well. Support the guys who hump games to multiple shows all year long so everyone can play them...
i can say that i do this. My personal Wizard of Oz has been brought to the Mad Rollin Pinball Charity event 2 years in a row now. I will be bring my personal WoZ and Hobbit (if i have it) to MGC also. A lot of work goes into be a distributor for a company. It not just get on the phone and sell a game. there are follow up calls, service calls, shows (allentown, expo, texas, midwest gaming, etc, etc) that machines have to be brought to, set up, maintained, and broken down. When i am at midwest gaming i am there working, not playing. Yes, there is reward to it, but many of you know me and know that i am not driving around in a new cadillac, or live in a mansion (yes, i do have my Harley, but it was purchased used, not new) I live modestly and enjoy what i do.
Support your local distributor, and they will support your local pinball community.
