    So I'm going to be wearing two T-shirts at the show:

    On Friday, I'm going to wear my brown *TILT* T-shirt.
    On Saturday, I'm going to wear my gray Stern Pinball T-shirt.

    If you're lucky enough to see me, be sure to talk a bit between games, or even watch me play. I'm a lot taller than you expect.

    Not sure if I'll be vlogging from the convention. I likely won't, but if things turn out for me I will. I'll keep you updated.

    Can't wait to meet you and buy you a drink at the bar!

    THIS IS THE FINAL WEEK TILL PINTASTIC!
    Ok guys we are at 122 games in free play. After reviewing the list of people bringing games I have to say I am very disappointed in the local collector community. Only 42 collectors are making up that 122 games. You guys have wanted a show in New England for how many years and now you have one. I know there are at least 300 collectors in the New England area. A show can not be great with out the support of local collectors. So this is it please rent a u-haul, jam one into your SUV or car, get together with a friend. We need more games and this is it time has run out! Thank you to those 42 people you know who you are.

    #856 4 years ago

    Gabe is right. This is your show too ! Help make it a great one.

    LTG : )

    #857 4 years ago

    If I could fit a couple of games on the .plane I would bring some man.

    No clue why people in the Nee England area aren't pitching in.

    This is YOUR SHOW...make it happen!

    Quoted from Kineticross:

    Ahh...I'll get you a Miller Lite. It's the same thing as drinking soda. Or cow piss.

    #859 4 years ago

    I hope there are going to be a few last minute additions.

    I really want to see this show succeed

    Thanks for all the hard work getting it off the ground

    #860 4 years ago

    Mark and I were trying to iron out golf games this weekend. Some likely candidates are

    Space shuttle
    Blackjack
    Algar
    Devils dare
    WWF Rotal Rumble
    Medusa
    Shadow
    AC/DC
    Iron man classic.

    Subject to change....

    Stay confident.

    This is just year one.

    2-3 years from now can be in the top shows in the nation. Few lead, most follow. You are doing great work.

    #863 4 years ago

    Andrew Heighway will have 2 new Full Throttle Pins for play, & I should have my new WOZ 75th for play. Wondering what other new pins for play will also be at the show?

    Sounds like a good list. I do know Shadow tied us all up at JR's. I do not recall what the target score was just that you could play for a really long time with out hitting it if you did not know how to score well on that game!

    #865 4 years ago

    For those of us bringing games on Friday for the free play area, what is the earliest time to show up with the game for setup?

    We will be open for set up at 7am on Friday.

    #868 4 years ago

    For those bringing games for the free play area: you can show up as early as 7:00 AM either Friday or Saturday! To my mind, that's another great incentive for bringing a game. You can hang out in the free play area after setting up your games, but everybody has to cooperate for efficient, orderly, and SAFE setup.

    I am told that every game in the free play room will need a card. Among other things, the card will indicate whether the game is for sale. Every game is automatically entered in the Best In Show contest, and the card is used to determine who gets the prize.

    I'm going to shoot to bring Champion Pub, have to over night 4 leg bolt plates (all are stripped) but it serves upa some punches real niiiice.

    My 1990 Gottlieb Hoops will be in free play (not for sale)- PLAY THIS GAME. It is awesome and you will be hard pressed to find another.

    And i'm not on the list....so there is two more. Gabe, you got a text coming your way.

    I have a Taxi machine which is in Westford, MA which I would be willing to bring if I can find a ride for it. My car only fits one machine, and that space is already taken. It's in the basement, but there is easy access to a bulkhead. PM me if you might a space and are coming past my place. (It's at the corner of rt 3 and I495). Thanks

    #879 4 years ago

    Loading mine up today, between Cyroute and myself , we are bringing up 6 pins from PA. Sounds like New England needs more Pins, So all ours will be for sale!
    Whats the power arrangements, do we need to bring cords and power strips???

    We have worked hard to figure out what we need for cords and power strips but it would not hurt to have some as backup if need be. Thanks guys

    Quoted from dannunz:

    We will be open for set up at 7am on Friday.

    On your website it also says vendor/free play setup on Thursday from 11am-9pm. Is that correct?

    I ask because I was going to need 2 trips to get my games there and was planning on bringing some on Thursday then come back with more Friday morning.

    Sounds good, I'll buy you a drink on Thursday.
    Thanks again for all the hard work your guys did to get the show together.
    It will be great to finally have local show.

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that a few more locals overcome the inertia to bring a game.

    #884 4 years ago

    Just got off the phone with Jen. WOZ 75th should be boxed on Tuesday. Play a brand new WOZ 75th factory fresh at the show!

    I would win third place on purpose just to get that Indy trophy. Sweet.

    I made a reply on FB but I feel I should re-post here.

    I understand the frustration you must feel but please keep in mind there are many people attending who have never seen 100+ machines in one place before and are going to be thrilled to have that many games to play.
    Judging by your updates, you appear to be coordinating a great event and are trying to foster an atmosphere that both newbies and old timers will enjoy.
    May this be the start of something great.

    ---In a year or two, I hope to have the space and means for my own machine. I’d like to have a nearby event to haul it to

    and to the 42+ folks bringing their games THANK YOU!!!

    #898 4 years ago
    Quoted from dannunz:

    Who you going to call?

    My bank to make funds available. I will be on the hunt for things that can do well in the Wild. Working to bring pinball to more locations around me. The more people in the hobby the better the hobby will be. More people Buy games the more new games we will see from people like Stern Jack and many others. Even if people just enjoy playing them we can get more locations like Lanes and Games, Pinwiz and keep pinball around for the next generation!
