    Sorry to miss BK2K. Knew I should have gone back for Saturday. I did play iron Man on Friday though. That pin always kicks my butt, but it's sure fun to play.

    That table - along with LW3, which was also there - was at the height of the DE mediocrity of the time, and both are blatant one-shot pins, and they're easy shots at that. For all the fun toys on the Star Wars table, if you can shoot the ramp, you can do just about anything, except multiball.

    I think with Jurassic Park, DE at least got the right idea of ripping off TAF's layout (Pat Lawlor consistently rips off his own layouts, so why not, eh?), and making the game fun. Spit at Nedry? Okay! One of the best multi-balls ever? Yeah. And I had totally forgotten about the "Get Timmy Off The Electric Fence" mode. Naturally the biggest problem with the JP they had was T-Rex. With JP, if there's a problem, it's usually T-Rex.

    I'm with you on Jurassic Park. I always enjoy playing that. The one at York played nicely. It was the first time my wife had even seen a JP. She really liked the T-Rex, so I was happy it was working.

    Really a good show. You gotta do it one of these years. Then you won’t want to miss it again.



    See you there Eldar.

    York’s always a toss up for me. It’s a drive and not nearly as big as Allentown.

    Not this year but will (as always) be at Allentown next May.

    Couple of highlights and takeaways from the morning.

    Deadpool is fun, the display is particularly good for 90s fighting game fans!

    Iron Maiden Premium doesn't add enough over the Pro to make it worth the extra - it's still a great game!

    Loads of indie pins popping up now. Mafia, Thunderbirds, some multi-form table.

    Played a pretty decent Fathom (not for sale and no price quoted, sadly).

    And an unboxing of a new-in-box(!) 1962 Silver Sails bingo game. For real.

    You missed what I thought was the best pin there, a great Captain Fantastic restoration - actually more than restoration, it looked as if it was manufactured to today's standards and came new-in-the-box. (Pics to follow - they're on my phone.)

    At least they fixed it 20 years later.

    Great pics, guys. I especially enjoy seeing the Thunderbirds, proper art Lost in Space, Mafia and as always Farfalla.

    Yeah, there were some real gems. Also a very nice Rollergames, Cue Ball Wizard, and a sweet Big Indian. I wasn’t able to get picks of all the good ones. And some of my pics were bad (blurry, glare, etc).
    Quite a lovely selection of pins today. Played from 10AM til 3:30PM and wished I could have stayed even longer.

    York PA pinball show is this weekend. Hard to believe it's been a year already. I will be there on Friday as usual. I'll take some pics and post them here. Hope some of you can make it. It's a fun show.

    If I'm there, it'll be Saturday. Chances are, I won't be able to make it this year though. Too much Life

    I spent about 6 hours at the show today. Great selection of pins there. Sadly, no Elvira (guess it was too soon). Really good crowd for a Friday. I didn’t take many pics, but here are some of the non-blurry ones.
