    Hmm, I'd be interested in Viper Phase 1 and Sailor Moon. I'd imagine these aren't actually going to be priced to sell, though, and VP1 is going to be the full cab, not just the board.

    Oh I bet they'd make the buyer pay for that ridiculous tecmo thing sailor moon is in too.

    Anyone going to the Pintastic pinball expo in Sturbridge MA this weekend? Not much for arcade gaming but there will be a ton of free play/for sale pins and some panel presentations on Saturday.

    pinball...I can play it for 20 mins, after that I had my fix for 5 years or so...to each their own, have a blast!

    Edit: ...and I used to be into it, grew up playing a few tables around the neighborhood, now days if they're not around I'm not thinking about it, if I see one here and there I may drop a few quarters but those chances are running slim...

    Went for the 'free play only' from 6-12 last night. Third year that I've gone to Pintastic and happy to finally see a Monster Bash there... my favorite table. It was right next to The Walking Dead so it was a pretty busy pair. Tons of other pins and a friendly crowd chatting pinball while waiting for the popular tables.

    New this year is the 'VIP lounge' for people who buy the weekend superpass. It's actually the room that was used for the tournament last year and it now has about 20 popular tables that can only be played by VIPs. The VIP lounge is open overnight, so it'll probably be pretty boozy in there around 3am...

    There were only a few cabs there... Tekken 5, Final Fight, Double Dragon, and a couple others. Also had Ice Chexx, Foosball, RetroN 5 consoles, and a few MegaTouch machines. The event is billed as a Pinball and Game Room Expo but it's really 95% pinball and not worth going if you're not into pinball.



    I'm going back on Saturday for the panels, vendors, auction, and more free play until 2am.

    ^ Cool, that's good to hear that they'll have fighters.

    I went to "Shelter" in Providence last month. It was ok.

    The only cab that wasn't on was the Neo 4 slot. I asked them if there was anything wrong with it and they were just like
    "oops we just didn't plug it in".

    Yeah they're mostly a pinball spot. Their vid selection is good but the condition can sometimes be hit or miss (or completely off like you said). They did have Neo Turf in the 4 slot which I was pretty happy with. They also didn't have Marvel 2 chars unlocked

    I haven't seen it open yet, just helped move a bunch of the games in a month back. If I had to guess SF2: HF, MK2, UMK3 at the very least. Don't quote me on that though. Bringing boards probably not going to happen, though we'll see what's available for cabs.

    Is this new arcade open yet? I'll be in Providence on Thursday for an 80s concert and would head there early to check it out...

    Last night was the first night. Grand opening is next weekend, though I think it might just be Friday only. Ask here: https://www.facebook.com/freeplayri/

    Thanks. Looks like Friday is opening day, but I might still go by on Thursday just to find the place and peek in the window. It's about the same distance for me as Pinball Wizard so road trips to Shelter/FreePlay might become a decent replacement.
