    I know. It's my favorite weekend of the year. I go with work friends on friday (we take the day off). Then I go again on Saturday with my wife. Such a fun time. Can't wait to play Willie Wonka, Black Knight, Munsters, Oktoberfest, and hopefully a bunch of cool EMs.

    Today was the first day of Pinfest 2019. Crowd was huge for a Friday. Was there for about 4 hours and played less than 20 games. Snapped a few pics for you guys.

    Munsters was fun. Shots were so smooth. The black and white art on the premium is so beautiful in person.

    The new Black Knight pin was there. The animations and lighting were really nice on this one. The gameplay was just ok for me though. Other than the main toy (huge spinner thing) shot, the other shots weren’t as satisfying. But it did play very fast



    Today was the first time I played Beatles. I’m a huge fan of Seawitch, so I knew I would enjoy it. The few tweeks and the added magnet were nice as well. My buddy thought it was boring, but he doesn’t love old school games.

    Willy Wonka was there from Jersey Jack. What a smooth and fun playing layout! Pat Lawlor really has some magic. My friend and I agreed it was the best pin on the floor. Would have loved to keep playing it, but the line was long all day. So only got a couple of plays. Loved it from the first ball and that rarely happens for me.



    Also saw Oktoberfest for the first time. Need many more plays to explore this one. So many things packed into it. Art is nicer in person, but still not great. Animations look unfinished (and maybe they are?). And the steep left ramp and the ramp shot from the top right flipper seem nearly impossible. And that doesn’t help you get into the game. The pin has potential, but needs a ton of polish to clean this up.

    Throwing this one at you because I’ve never seen it before and the art made me laugh.

    Way too busy for a Friday. Heck, I saw kids that should have been in school...with their parents even. The show really should open earlier than noon.

    Munsters Premium was gorgeous. Black Knight was ok. The toy was really cool but otherwise the playfield felt so barren. Not worth almost 6k. Stern should have cut the price on that one. Didn’t even bother with Wonka. There was always a long line.

    Bought some art blades for my Iron Maiden and some used arcade marquee’s for the room. Had a decent time but it was just way too packed.

    Quick takes:
    Black Knight - very basic? Too basic? No upper playfield? [Edit: the Premium and LE have an upper playfield; oh, Stern...] Cool toys and everything but I'd have expected more.
    Munsters - only played the LE (black-and-white with mini lower playfield) - pretty cool from my one go.
    Monster Bash Remake - the one I played felt a bit shaky, not great build quality. Same with the AFM I played. The huge color DMD is really neat, I'd just like a pin that feels nice and solid like the original WMS ones, this felt like a Data East.
    Willy Wonka - a very long line, didn't play.
    Oktoberfest - not interested enough to line up (maybe I should've been?)
    Iron Maiden - I still want one.
    The Surfer that myself and @Kolchak357 played together - great condition, worth $1475, ever better when the owner marked it down to $1400 while I was playing it! If only I'd had a spare $1400 and my wife's minivan!

    The note says there are "5 copywrite(sic) violations". I was trying to spot them all but only got to 2 (the obvious Kurt Russell/Snake Plissken ripoff, and the Apple logo). So what are the other 3?!

    Also the owner was looking for someone to translate the Italian instruction card.

    That Surfer was a peach. I wanted to take it home as well. If I thought I could maintain it when issues arose, it would be in my basement right now.

    As for Thunder Man, I only noticed Kurt Russell/Snake, lol.

    Ha. There was one of those at Vintage Flipper World, which was also this weekend, along with World Defender which is a Terminator rip-off with the artwork in much the same way. Both of those tables are terribly mediocre.
