There was more to Pintastic than Todd Tuckey and Jersey Jack there were the vendors like Ben from Pinbox 3000
his system has really grown since the first one
Steve from Rock Fantasy store/arcade in NY who has been to every pintastic but one
Clever to bring a machine that needs slight tweaking to a show full of tweakers
You have virtual Pinball well represented among the vendors, I spoke to Cliff of the VR zone
His virtual reality cabinet was so big it took two videos to show it
It’s a good solution for fans with limited space.
Of course there were the individuals like Chris
He brought his daughters which is no surprise as every year more and more kids are there with parents, which is why we saw old friend Maggie the Clown entertaining them, but in a cunning disguise sans makeup
Most of the kids however were to be found at the games on tiny step provided by Pintastic for them to reach the tables.
I wasn’t the only person filing in fact the good folks at Xtreme has a three person team which did live streaming of games with an excellent setup to do so.
this makes sense because even on the last day of Pintastic the stars of the show are the games
And the people who meet while playing them.
I was playing a four player game with the young couple to my right and my son, Pintastic is a great place to connect with people. It’s a place where people in Deplorable shirts share a parking lot with folks with Bernie bumper stickers because it’s all about the Pinball and the camaraderie of the joy of the games that all share.
We’ve got two more pintastic posts coming a compilations of Q & A and a wrap up post but those will not be leads so starting tomorrow expect a return to news and commentary in the lead posts here at DaTechGuy blog again
