I played Oktoberfest at Player One just before last weekend and it appears to be fun, but not sure if it would be lasting fun. Probably going to be a great game on location but there is one ramp shot that, without perfectly working flippers, will probably be impossible to make. If I had a bar, I'd want this I it....

My first A-Town experience. Brought the whole family and we all had a blast! The Farmers Market was awesome .. almost worth the drive by itself. Met some really nice folks and picked up some really cool stuff for the game room. Definitely want to do it again next year.

Had a fantastic time at Pinfest. AirBnB was great as well as all my room mates. Had many visitors as well. Great seeing and hanging out with everyone. Already planning for next year.

I am almost invisible on the machines.

Spoke to Jersey Jack too. Gave us a nice bit of info on an upcoming title that he swore us to secrecy on.
