Next one at TARG is Wednesday, Dec. 11th. There're also events at the Brass Monkey on Greenbank at Hunt Club on Sundays Nov. 24 and Dec. 15, but those are a bit too rich for my blood given my skill level.

Re: CALLING ALL PINHEADS WHO HAVE BOUGHT FROM USA!

Not correct, no prize. From https://www.maaca.org/viewtopic.php?t=22034 , it's definitely Honey Badger's vehicle, but given it's a Caravan (specifically a Half-Broken Van, given the rear windows), it's probably "Honey Badger's Van" or "the Honey Badger Van" , instead. Personally...

Re: Artist wanted for OPL Logo.

The coloured-in version is definitely better than the monochrome version of the logo. Not terribly fond of the font choice, but I don't have an alternative to recommend off the top of my head. I know what it's supposed to be, but I can't unsee the logo being an angry fish. Perhaps making the ball he...

Re: OPL Friday, November 22nd @ DonnyBrasco

How is it that most spots are filled every month without anyone posting that they want in? To my understanding, it's a combination of: 1) meet hosts (and their co-domiciles) being auto-invited to each event, which results in about 2/3rds of the available slots full even before the meet is announced...

Re: Dirty Donny Ottawa Pinball & Gameroom youtube episode

Maybe you mean "strongly", hardly has the exact opposite meaning. Probably meant heartily or wholeheartedly, both of which sound like 'hardly' but mean the opposite. Regarding the video, I'm not sure if I'd call this "The OPGS episode", when it was all of 75 seconds of the almos...

Re: Let's play "what's this Japanese DJ vid worth"? LOL

If I were to put a number on it, I'd guess somewhere between $800-1000, assuming it's a fully working machine. I base this on finding a recent sold listing for another Beatmania game of the same year sell for US$550 ($750), and seeing an arcade importer quote about US$1200 ($1600). I figure since th...

Re: Artist wanted for OPL Logo.

I'm not going to suggest I'm a good artist by any means, but I did have a concept that someone could put some actual effort into.

EDIT 10 hours later: I tried harder, went with a neon sign aesthetic.

Re: OPL Sunday, September 8th @ ShootAgain's

I'd join, but I have no way to get out there and then back to civilization afterward. Any opportunities for a lift from south of the river?

EDIT: Tentatively have a ride to and from. Consider me in.

How broad is your definition of collector? The games I own are in no way gamefloor-ready, so I would only be able to contribute financially.

It's not too detailed, as long as some adjustments are made to take advantage of the square ratio of the favicon, and to redraw everything as pixel art at the smallest 16x16 resolution. 48x48: https://i.imgur.com/WzEDlyR.png 32x32: https://i.imgur.com/Vx1MwA5.png 16x16: https://i.imgur.com/Rj6tTOW.p...

I don't know if this is the appropriate time or place to ask this, but I'd be willing to buy one of the paper attendee wristbands if they're available. It'd help cover some small part of the costs and I'd be able to add it to the framed poster from this year's event to match the ones from 2015 and 2...
