OPGS Pinhistory booth call-out for games!

This is a public call for anyone that might have something to bring to the OPGS pinhistory booth.
I'm bringing a bunch of stuff for it, but we definitely could use more, especially full-sized pinball machines.

The pinhistory area offers a few advantages:
1) Signage saying no children are allowed in the area unsupervised, and that all machines should be treated delicately as museum pieces
2) Near constant monitoring by myself and/or other volunteers

We are especially looking for any pinball machines from the 1950s and earlier.

Also: International coin-op machines and oddities, and pachinko-style machines for the pachi section.

Items can also be display-only pieces if you have something you think would be good to show off but it's not up for playing.


Please post here or DM me.

Sure, I'll call in some favours and have the booth staffed by Star Trek cosplayers.


And if anyone wants to spend some time watching over the booth during the Saturday/Sunday, I could use the occasional break.
