    1 Ultimate VIP Left!

    #52 8 months ago

    Tried ordering an ultimate VIP pass using "TheHueManatee" as my name. It said the max characters was 10

    Truth. We are busted. It will let you write a pinball book in there if you want.

    TheHueManatee is 14, but it will only print 10 on the pass. So unless you tell us otherwise the pass will say
    TheHueMana

    How do I change it?

    I'd take "HueManatee" if possible.

    Consider it changed. For anyone else looking to make updates a Edit Ticket URL should be sent to all ticket holders. From that link you can change the name on the pass or who the pass is for up until February 28, 2019. After that it's assigned to that person.

    Wow!!! What a first day for ticket sales for YEGPIN we are already over 50% sold in the first day!!! Unfortunately, as you see above, the insane demand created a few issues with our new Credit Card processing system. This only impacted a few individuals, we have reached out and we are sorry for your frustration, we believe we have fixed these issues.

    There are some things we can't control. Please ensure you are using the address for your CC on the order.

    As a token of our appreciation for your patience we have opened 25 more Ultimate VIP tickets as there have been a few individuals that were unable to get their Ultimate passes processed yesterday.

    So for this years show there will be now:
    75 – Ultimate VIP packages available
    50 – VIP Packages available

    Currently there is stock for:
    26 – Ultimate VIP
    32 – VIP Packages

    So if you haven’t got your ticket, act quickly, as there will not be further adjustments to the tickets.

    Just want to thank the all of the wonderful pinball and arcade community in BC, AB, SK, MB, ON, NFLD, CA and WA who have already purchased tickets for the event. We have we could have never dreamed of the support we have for the show and look forward to exceeding your expectations once again this year.

    For any online ticket issues feel free to email diehardpinball at gmail.com and we can make arrangements for alternative payments.

    Just tried to buy 2 Ultimate VIP passes for myself and wife and the payment would not go through??

    Tried 2 different cards, neither worked...

    Maybe they are sold out?

    #61 7 months ago
    Quoted from TheHueManatee:

    No. It says there is 19 left. Its a payment issue problem.

    Quoted from Spencer:

    I had issues too when I was trying to pay for multiple at the same time. I end up having to do them each individually.

    #63 7 months ago

    And I had to make alternate payment arrangements. So there’s an issue for sure.

    #64 7 months ago
    Quoted from Pinhead306:

    Yes, thank you, I did them one at a time and it worked.

    Driving up looking for a Creature, can also bring a game for trade..

    #65 7 months ago

    Yes, for some weird reason we have been having an issue with multiple passes. If you try to do them one at a time we are hoping they will process properly. Sorry for all the payment issues this year we are running a new system one of the growing pains of the show in order to automate our financials. Thanks for all of your patience.

    #69 7 months ago

    Will there be any show posters available?

    #70 7 months ago

    Undecided, if there are it will be very limited quantities as they have not sold well in previous shows and we would only make available at the show unfortunately.

    What about tattoos? Can I get this year’s show art tattooed on my back at the show? Can they do it while I’m playing - I don’t want to miss out on qualifying for the sake of art...

    #72 7 months ago

    Almost forgot, congrats on the Classics II win at INDISC Deryk!

    Missed the stream but hoping it’ll hit YouTube at some point so I can watch it.

    Just remember, you’re far too busy running YegPin to play in the Classics tourney there.

    #73 7 months ago

    Yes, thanks... As big as this show is getting I may not get to play anything at all this year. It is my one big sacrifice of the year lol... Now over the 150 competitor mark and only 12 VIP tickets left get them while they are still available.

    Trying to buy one of the last 2 VIP passes today and getting an error saying "Error: Square was unable to complete the transaction. Please try again later or use another means of payment." Any help on this? I don't want to miss out on the VIP.

    #78 6 months ago

    Just wanted to provide you all with an update!!!

    YEGPIN presentated by Nitro Pinball and Retro Active Arcade Ltd has officially sold out of VIP tickets.

    Now there are still 4 Ultimate VIP tickets left to purchase so act fast as I believe these won't last till the cutoff date of Feb 29, 2019.

    One last warning in order to participate in the Nitro Pinball Canadian Pinball Championship and Classic Tournament you must purchase a UVIP or VIP pass. There will be no show registration for these two events, the only way to get in is to buy a VIP pass, donate a machine or volunteer for the event, sorry but there are already over 160 participants and we must cap the field.

    I also received word from our vendors:

    Nitro Pinball will be bringing many of the new titles to the show, there will be at least 15 of the latest and greatest titles out there to try out from Stern, Jersey Jack, Spooky Pinball, American Pinball and maybe a few other surprises!!!!

    Retro Active Arcade is busy making a number of custom retro arcades dedicated for the show to show off and you to try out, thousands of classics arcade titles all rolled up into one machine or pedestal it is quite impressive.

    We are finalizing the artwork for the show right now and hoping to be able to provide a sneak peak into our shirt, pass and poster designs by the end of the month.

    Preparations are being made for all of the Ultimate VIP goodies, can't wait to get all of this stuff and start to get the awesome packages for these folks.

    Some people have asked are you still accepting machine donations for the weekend. Absolutely we are, we have a much bigger space, we have build more power panels so lets pack the joint with as many as we can. Keep on sending in your donations we would love to have your machines for the show.

    A separate post will be sent to show you the awesome prize draws for the machine donors that we will be giving away, I can tell you no other show in the world is as generous as our when it comes to providing machine donors with rewards. Whether you want to bring or sell a game we would love to have it. Please get a hold of us if you want to donate a machine to the event.

    #84 6 months ago

    Because i suck at playing pinball i tend to do something im better at .... drinking.... and when i drink i like watching pinball! Is there any plans to display the finals onto a screen of some kind so watchers can see the action?

    #85 6 months ago

    Double post

    #86 6 months ago

    This year there will be a bigger tournament area, stands setup for viewing, with drinking allowed and hopefully (2) 55" tv's that will show the machines being streamed for finals. We are not prepared to do an INDISC setup of 24 tv's showing the playfields behind the machines or like Pinburgh where they have two 120ft screens to show action but hopefully this will be enough to people to see all the action while it is being streamed live.

    In case your not following along on Facebook.

    So did any of you out there get an Ultimate VIP pass this year, if so man are you lucky the shirts this year are awesome. One of my favourite arcade themes when I was a kid was Gauntlet so we asked Brian Holderman to give us his take on this for our show. I think he did a bang up job on the art. There will be very limited quantities and sizes available at the show so get there early at the merchandise desk if you want one this year!!! Thanks again to Brian Holderman for all his hard work, the guy is super talented!!!
