    Pintastic or bust
    That is all!

    Quoted from Colehvac1:

    Pintastic or bust

    bust here - it's hard to stay on the sidelines during the big game. But the real world calls and I'm sporting my dress shirt and tie. Have a great time everyone and remember many of us "wanna-be's" will be looking forward to your posts from the show! Derek, you have to do it again as I've got the green light to come in 2016!

    Quoted from Jared:

    3:20amCST... Loaded... Waking up in 2 hours, lol. So excited!

    Plan on taking any pictures? Don't forget to get your clam chowda at Legal Sea Foods at Logan when you land.

    #954 4 years ago

    I just got a room thanks to someone's last minute cancellation. According to Kathryn there are two more left. The main hotel is actually booked solid for Friday night and it's very honorable that they are not dissolving the block of rooms to sell at a higher rate, so very close to the event.

    Woohoo!

    #956 4 years ago
    Quoted from Jared:

    Here we go!!

    Flying first class? No wonder why Stern machines are so expensive! (That and actually making them)

    #957 4 years ago

    After all these years in the hobby this will be my first show also. I don't get out much and I hear pinball people smell funny.

    Maybe I should re-think this.

    #958 4 years ago
    Quoted from Jared:

    Here we go!!image.jpg

    If you look in th lower left corner of that picture you can see a hint that Game of Thrones will be the next Stern. Well played, Jared!

    You and me both. Being doing this since about '88 and although I've done my share of dumpster diving and warehouse crawling, it is my first show. Big kudos to the crew putting this on in the NE area!!!!!

    I thought the next game was going to be TMNT, based on THAT pic!

    ***catches up on thread***

    Holy crap! Now I really can't wait for Saturday
    This will be my first show and tourney.

    #963 4 years ago

    Just landed! Walking around outside baggage check enjoying the weather...

    #964 4 years ago

    Get some chowda!

    #965 4 years ago

    Just wondering: why hasn't Gabe or Derek posted here in a while?

    #966 4 years ago

    Anyone interested in a truly rare machine? I have one of the last machines fully designed and built by JPOP ... A Zizzle PotC

    I can bring it to pintastic. Not sure if they'll let me set it up in free play. I will through in a Zidware postcard.

    $100 which is what I paid for it? Seems high though, doesn't it....

    #967 4 years ago

    #970 4 years ago

    So if I hang out at the Kids Korner with Kineticross, would anybody consider that creepy?

    Hello no.
    I was thinking that that'd be neat to play in too!

    #972 4 years ago
    Quoted from Coyote:

    I just wanted to...uh...watch.

    #973 4 years ago

    FYI...the rooms do not have fridges or microwaves.

    This is the first hotel I've stayed at where they aren't included. And I usually stay at flea bag hotels.

    There is a $10 per day fee if you want a fridge.

    So much for trying to save a few bucks on food by bringing your own...

    #974 4 years ago

    Gabe, loading trailer see u guys around 730

    Sounds like the Four Seasons. I'm at a place on Block Island that barely has a bed. It's like f**king Alcatraz here and I can't wait to get to Sturbridge tomorrow. Do I need bedbug spray?

    That's pretty bad-azz

    #984 4 years ago

    Well, I won't be falling asleep tonight.

    #985 4 years ago

    Awesome - heading down in morning!

    #986 4 years ago

    Was loading my machines, got 3 out of 4 loaded and it started pouring.... Sigh.. Early AM...

    #987 4 years ago

    Just got home a little while ago from Pintastic. The show is going to exceed all expectations.

    #988 4 years ago

    I am stoked. I'll probably be in back spasms all day from humping hardware but it will be worth it. About 2 hour ride south for me so gonna be an early AM to get there for 7am.

    #990 4 years ago

    LOBSTA and CHOWDA!!!! Welcome to New England.

    #991 4 years ago

    Me and the lady were first to play full throttle and I must say its pretty fun with tons of speed and flow . Also love the way its so easily swapped with another title. Met the crew and talked for a while what a bunch of great guys.this is going to be a great company here to stay they thought of everything.
    Show is off to a great start with tons already going on

    #992 4 years ago

    I spent the evening at the show for setup...there are a lot of nice machines up and running

    I played BBB...interesting machine. Some return shots are *very* fast, so you will need some quick reflexes.

    There are several duplicate machines, so hopefully everyone will have a chance to get some time on machines they were looking to play without having to wait too long. Many of the LEDed pins have tasteful bulb choices, so you won't find yourself needing to reach for some sunglasses.

    I'm still looking for a 5W 1.3k ohm resistor for a system 80 power supply. If anyone has one, please give me a shout. The display voltage on the game I have for free play is too low since the resistor is reading as the wrong value, so the displays are a bit dim.

    #993 4 years ago

    Force, I'll go look if I have the resistor. If not I'll bring a spare Sys 80 supply for you to BORROW

    See you in the AM.

    Quoted from Patofnaud:

    See you in the AM.

    Great, I appreciate you taking the time to check. Don't worry about loaning a power supply--I have a plan B if I can't find someone with a resistor. Thanks!

    #995 4 years ago

    Got 2 supplies in my box (including a full set of System 80 boards out of an Amazing Spiderman) if plan B don't pan out. Just put them by the door to load in AM.

    #996 4 years ago

    I've been here since 11:00 this morning assisting where needed. As expected, I have been able to see all of the new pins, including the P3. What I hadn't expected was to have dinner with Roger Sharpe. Nice...

    Looks like it is going to be a terrific show. It's very hard to believe that this is the first attempt. Very impressive!

    #997 4 years ago

    They freaking paddle boats and carnival rides, lol. Talk about swinging for the fences.

    #998 4 years ago

    Hey Craig, isn't your avatar from Oxford?

    #999 4 years ago

    Can I just say that I am more than a little terrified of this hotel... lol...
