    Quoted from jadziedzic:

    I have a BBB, and there are two reasons why I would be concerned with bringing it to a show: 1) lack of physical security after hours, and 2) potential for abuse/misuse. I'd like to enjoy the show and not feel it's necessary to bring a sleeping bag and camp out under the game to be sure it doesn't develop wheels and disappear. I host occasional pinball events at my home, and have experienced first-hand the *small* number of inconsiderate boobs who punch, slap, kick, slide, etc., other people's games; I suspect there's just as much potential for this at a show where the "audience" is more open.
    Consider how you could address those concerns and perhaps you may improve the chance of getting rarities at the show.
    BTW, if you want to drive up to Nashua you're welcome to play my BBB, or keep an eye on the Boston Pinball Association group as I may have another open house before the end of the year.

    I haven't read the thread but I'm pretty sure the location required them to pay for a security guard day and night during the entire event. I know the place I looked at required it.. And a emt during show hours. Was like $33hr for security guard... The funny part it was $36hr for one with a gun... Seriously only $3 for a gun lol

    Quoted from jadziedzic:

    All that is helpful and reassuring - but there's still an underlying concern about damage or theft that is specifically mentioned (and excluded) in post 116 of this thread. Let's dismiss the theft concern since it does seem you've tried to address that and puzzle out the damage aspect. Do you have plans for a separate area for "show" games (restoration contest entries, rare games, etc.) where there is less chance of damage due to games being moved around, provides more supervision, etc.?
    Just to throw out an example, if someone accidentally wheels a game into the side of my BBB and damages the artwork my $15k game has taken a serious hit in value. I'd be less concerned if something similar happened to my RFM, which while very nice would not be anywhere near as hard to address that type of damage.

    There was a bbb sitting in the hallway of Chicago expo. It was set with a dollar bill acceptor at a buck a play. No one guarding it 24/7. Walking by it at times there was guys leaning on the side and front of it while their friends were playing the plexiglass game beside it. I almost took a picture cause I was laughing that they had no clue what they were using as a bench. With that said nothing will make u feel good about having your bbb at the show. Simple solution don't bring it! If the show owners haven't put in stipulation that they are not responsible for damage to your game they should. They should only be responsible for protection of property theft during off show hrs, which they will have covered I'm sure.
