    So we have all heard of "bring a game and win a game". Well how about we raise the stakes once again and give you "buy a game, win a game" sounds pretty good right.

    Well YEGPIN has partnered with Nitro Pinball to provide discounts on all of the "demo" machines that will be at YEGPIN.

    Yep that is right, not only will you get a discounted machine but you will also qualify yourself as a donor status at YEGPIN and have a chance to win one too.

    OMG, we are just throwing out the surprises this year.

    All of the details are on our website, please visit often and don't miss out on a one in a lifetime opportunity to purchase one of these games at a smoking deal.

    This is a limited time offer so don't hesitate if you are looking to add one of these awesome machines to your collection.

    Just updated the pinball machine list, pretty damn impressive so far. Keep those donations coming we want to pack the place and make this the best show ever!!!!

    Thanks to all of those who give up their machines for the weekend for those to enjoy, I understand the sacrifice and commend you for your donation to help increase awareness and give so many people an opportunity to see and play pins they might otherwise don't even know exist.

    I give up my entire collection every year and I can't wait till I get to show off my beautifully restored AFM, it is going to be awesome for people to enjoy!!!

    Big Thanks for all that you do Derek and crew
    You convinced me to bring my restored Williams Indiana Jones for the tournament.
    I will have Congo there as well.

    Maybe another one, not in my collection

    It's going to be great this year
    Bring your games people.

    I know its hard to determine but what would the amount of games played be on a machine? Approx... Also, as Dan mentioned above, do you get to choose if its a tournament game or general public game?

    #105 5 months ago

    No YEGPIN determines whether a game goes into the tournament section but we will let you know ahead of time as normally modifications are needed to be made to get them tournament ready. Honestly, they get played the same amount of play in both areas.

    Anywhere from 400 - 800 plays during the three days is normal play.

    If your machine is fully working, clean and waxed the amount of plays really won’t have an affect these machines. Remember pins were meant to have thousands of plays on them. I have brought every machine I have to the event each year and still have not had to do flipper rebuilds or any major work on them. It is always a leap of faith but again my take is I get more joy watching people play my machines and enjoying them then them siting in the basement only getting played a couple times a week.

    Quoted from Spencer:

    Some games get played more in the public area. The first year my BBH had over 800 games played. Never had any issues at the show. Played well and was in great shape when donated. Just needed a good shop job after.

    Last year I had 2 games with just over 600 plays each and one I that was played more. I don't worry about the amount of plays just enjoy people playing pinball.

    If no one brought any games there would not be a show.

    Bring a game, it will get handled like one of our own by all the volunteers.

    Looking forward to this years show and volunteering again.

    #107 5 months ago

    I have brought games. They actually left better than when they arrived. Also loved watching people enjoy my collection. Look forward to volunteering again. Top notch show.

    I put that many games on my pins in 4-5 years.

    Open to arcade games? Just got a Tron.

    #109 5 months ago

    Absolutely, we take both pins and arcades. A Munsters Pro Pinball machine is given away to one lucky donor on pinball side, and a restored Dig Dug on the arcade side. The show is about celebrating pinball and classic arcade so we are happy with any donations for the show.

    I think all of our games probably the most plays at YEGPIN, with home use they don't get played often even for a guy like me who plays almost everyday.... Again there are many threads on Pinside where machines are easily running and in good shape on route after 30,000 games so putting your machine in the show has really little effect on it. As stated in previous posts we have a bunch of professional techs that ensure machines are running all weekend and in most cases we find they do run better once we leave the show as some collectors don't realize when certain things are wrong with them.

    So are you a VIP? If you are you know that you get a cool YEGPIN lanyard and VIP pass. If you choose the Ultimate VIP package then you get a special satin finish, silver foiled pass design on bottom, inscribed with a customized handle. You are going to get the rockstar treatment with these awesome looking passes for the weekend!!!

    If you are still looking for a VIP pass unfortunately they were all sold out a month ago, but feel free to post on here is you are interested in getting one as they might be a few people looking to transfer their pass as their plans may have changed.

    Note these are not the exact passes you will receive for obvious reasons

    Enjoy!!!

    If you are attending YEGPIN and you are from out of town, we have partnered with two awesome hotels for the weekend. The show rates will expire on April 1st, 2019 and that is no April Fool's joke. Can't say you haven't been warned.

    Honestly, to lazy to look...When do you have to confirm your bringing a game?

    #113 5 months ago

    I would ask at least one week before the event.

    I just mis-read your post. I thought I read "give away for Donairs!" I really don't even know why that got me so excited!

    So which Arcades are you bringing??

    I'm gravitating back to the Arcade games lately and looking forward to seeing some more of those!

    Due to unfortunate circumstances I have to part with one of our VIP weekend passes. If anyone is interested kindly PM, and please let me know if there’s a formal process/deadline for having the name associated to the pass revised. Many thanks.

    Pass has been sold, many thanks to bcrage88 for the assist!

    #121 5 months ago

    We can accept a transfer up to the start of the show so no issue there. Best to do it before thou as there is some work on our end to get the change made in the DTM software for tournament entry. As well if you bought a UVIP the custom handle cannot change after March 1. Sorry you can’t make the show but we will work with you to accomidate a transfer of the pass. Hope to see you next year.

    Fortunately I’m still able to attend the show, but sadly my +1 will have to wait until next year. Thankfully not a UVIP pass so there’s no custom branding.

    Your help is greatly appreciated, thank you so much.

    Sadly nothing awesome, just what i got left... a couple cocktail tables and a couple mega touches....
    ... the garage was full of arcades 7 years ago, until i found pinball.... now pinball rules supreme and all arcades that are left are the ones the wife and kids like....but hey, without arcades i wouldnt have found pinball; so i totally feel they should be hand in hand.

    I second this question. Please don’t post them on Facebook alone either.

    Pretty sure Deryk is competing in Vegas this weekend so don’t expect to hear back for a bit.

    Totan was hinted at

    #132 4 months ago
    Quoted from extraballingtmc:

    Totan was hinted at

    I seriously hope not. For the past 2 years i noticed a lot of the new games to the list end up in tourney instead of the freeplay floor. TOTAN is one game I'm seriously looking forward to trying finally and playing it the way they are set up for the tournament is no fun at all because of the extreme difficulty and limited accessibility due to qualifiers.

    maybe titles that have been to the show in previous years should be picked for the tourney so that people can have a chance to enjoy the new entries on the freeplay floor? Also this way people would have had a chance to play the game in previous years so there's a better chance of a wider audience understanding the game and the level of competition would be higher?

    I dunno just some thoughts and hopes

    #133 4 months ago

    I hope not too lol I suck at that game.

    Expect a curveball like Oktoberfest or acnc though plus some sneeze tilts on other games. Also I hear 2 x 4s may be involved lol

    #134 4 months ago

    Yep they've used those 2 x 4s before. Definately keeps the line moving. "Sneeze tilt" lol

    #135 4 months ago

    There is a ton of new games on the show floor each year, YEGPIN has one of the best selections and quality I have seen for machines as most of the machines come from collectors. We also move the games we no longer need for tournament onto the show floor for the public to play on Saturday night and Sunday morning. The event will always try to find the right balance to meet the needs of the tournament machines and still have quality machines available for the free play area.

    #136 4 months ago

    For those that are attending our tournaments I will be announcing the machine selections all this week.

    So let's this do this!!!

    The first tournament is for the Little Flippin Pinball Tournament which is limited to those participants which are 12 & under. This is part of our grass root program to continue to develop pinball competition players for the future.

    **New this year the young players will have all of their scores tracked in the DTM software and be able to que themselves or have their parents or YEGPIN scorekeeper que them onto a machine of their choice.

    For this tournament and each player is limited to a maximum of 5 tries on any of three machines available.

    The three machines will be:

    Guardians of the Galaxy
    Monster Bash
    Tales of the Arabian Nights

    There will be a full qualifying session on Saturday, where the top 4 players will advance to play in a four player final on Sunday.

    Prizes will be awarded to all of the finalists.

    This tournament is going to be a ton of fun so parents bring your sons and daughter's out and if they make the top 4, then they get to play into front of the big stage on Sunday for the finals!!!

    To register for this tournament please go to the registration desk on event day, entry into the tournament is free!!!

    Also with a paid adult admission, children 12 & under can attend YEGPIN for free!!!

    #137 4 months ago

    That's a great lineup for the kids tourney!

    #138 4 months ago

    Wow thats awesome! Almost makes me want to bring my kids..... almost....

    Quoted from toasterman04:

    Wow thats awesome! Almost makes me want to bring my kids..... almost....

    Careful there, you are getting dangerously close to some troubling territory.

    #140 4 months ago

    Let keep it going, we have two new tournaments this year, Pinball Pro Championship (PPC) and Women's Canadian Pinball Championships (WCPC).

    The PPC is a high stakes event that will bring out the best players to win a custom championship bracelet. Yep that is right, this prize is going to be sweet so bring a wad of cash and see if you can match up versus some of the best players in the world in this high stakes battle.

    It will be a PAPA, 4 machine card format and there will be 5 machines you can choose from to fill out your card. This pays homage to the one of the toughest formats in all of pinball.

    The event will run all day on Friday, and the playoff round will run on Saturday morning.

    The WCPC will run on the same machines as the PPC and will run on Saturday afternoon. This will be an open qualifying format on five machines of which 3 will count toward the total score of the event. The playoff round will be run along with the other finals on Sunday.

    We are proud to run a high level competition for just the ladies and look forward to crown our first women's champion.

    The machines for both of these events are as follows:

    Iron Maiden Pro
    Attack From Mars
    Sorcerer
    Paragon
    Centigrade 37

    Enjoy!!!!

    #142 4 months ago

    Anyone like old school pinball? If so you are going to like the next pinball tournament announcement.

    We will announce the YEGPIN Classics Tournament next. There will be a whopping 8 games available this year to test your skill and patience. 5 of the entries will be of the solid state era and 3 will be in the Electro-Mechanical era.

    The event will run all day Friday and Saturday afternoon with the playoffs on Saturday night and there will be over $5000 in cash and prizes given out for this event.

    So without further delay here are the entries for the classics division:

    KISS
    Joker Poker
    Mata Hari
    Nugent
    Trident
    Astronaut
    Atlantis
    Fireball

    Of course with the reliability of classic era games this is subject to change but this is the list as we know it today.

    Watch out for the big announcement tomorrow!!!

The playoffs will consist of 4 Modern/LCD, 4 Solid State and 4 Early Solid State entries, they will be lined up so you will have to play one of each era in the playoff round. The machines for the finals can come out of CPC, Pro Pinball/WCPC or Classics banks, so you might want to put entries in all of these tournaments if you think you are going to be be qualified for the playoffs for this tournament.

    Here is the bank for your enjoyment:

    Modern/LCD
    AC/DC LE
    Ironman
    KISS LE
    Metallica LE
