This is really exciting. Big Bang Bar is one of those extremely rare games that everyone want to see and play. We all know what they sell for, so what are the chances of finding someone nice enough to bring their BBB out to a show? Slim to none for sure.
Well, I met John Bateman at our local bowling alley. Asked if I could put up a poster and display some cards for people to take. John says to me in an excited voice...YOUR THE GUY DOING THAT SHOW!?
Log story short, John says, I was going to be contacting you. I am definitely going and I want to bring my BBB and set it up for charity. I almost fell over from my excitement. Almost pulled a Fred Sanford and started clutching my heart crying, Oh Elizabeth, I coming to join ya honey...with a Big Bang Bar in my hands! LOL
John is such a great guy to do this. And I'd like to say that, he is also the owner of the Spring Lake Arcade in Glendale Rhode Island. For those who don't know, The Spring Lake Arcade is Americas oldest penny arcade. Yup, right down there in little old RI. is the oldest penny arcade in the country. Who'da thunk that!? LOL
Here is a link to their website. http://www.springlakearcade.com/
So if you guys have always wanted the chance to play a beautiful BBB, your opportunity is only two weeks away at Pintastic! The machine will be set on $2 play with 100% of the money taken in going to a charity yet to be named. But every cent that is put into that machine will go towards helping families in need. So not only will you get to have the awesome experience of playing a BBB, but you'll also have the great feeling inside knowing that you help those who need it the most.
Our sincerest thanks again to John Bateman for doing this. John, it's pin brothers like you who are true assets and inspirations to the pin community. Thank you for all you do and are doing to make Pintastic an over the top amazing event!
