none taken Todd, but trying to get the number of machines I brought to the show ready, vs the number of monitors, parts, I did actually have a different monitor in FiF, but had to swap it at the last minute due to needing it in another machine, the number of people that said they don't remember that game from BITD  ???

Lol, bitd. I understand the time issue. Before I knew I was going to just be bringing one game I was trying to get ten ready to go. What a pain in the ass while trying to work a day job. I can't imagine the hell you went through. If I had the cash though that fix it and purple dk would be mine. ;)

Cool thread; not sure how I'm just now seeing it  :o.  Anyway... 

My favorites were games I had never seen or played:

1) Major Havoc -- I have no room or money for another game once a few projects are done, but after playing this game for nearly a full hour on Sunday all I could think about that night and Monday was "what on earth could I sell" to buy that machine.

2) Tin Star -- I played it repeatedly all weekend as I was determined to break 10,000 (didn't happen :P).  I have no idea why that game was so much fun, but it was.  I even took multiple pictures of it figuring I would never see it again. 

3) Venture -- It was a blast to finally play Venture in arcade form for the first time.  I wish I had seen the project originally, but regardless I'm glad I bought it and left it at Brian's for "storage" as in the end it was enjoyed by many :).  I even played several games as the yellow square vs the red squares once the sprite issue popped up 8).

4) Spiders --  Fun game in great shape that was quite addicting.  I don't know who owns it, but hopefully they are able to bring it back next year. 

5) Time Pilot -- I hadn't played it since BITD and I had forgotten how much fun it was.  Great game!

Looking for cheap or free storage for working games that will be at future shows :D

I didn't know where to post this but who had a Return of the Jedi arcade laying uncovered in the back of a truck? When I left GW on Sunday I saw it and when I left and was down the street it started raining. I hope it didn't get wet!  :(

Forgot to mention Wizard of Wor and Satan's Hollow.  I played both quite a bit and had a blast playing 2player Wizard of Wor with a friend Friday night.  You just have to love games where you can play cooperatively through a level, but when least expected you can shot your buddy in the back  :P 8)

Danny,  there's a lot of.... Well badness in the world today. I see it in the court everyday. I've sentenced boys younger than you to the gas chamber.... didn't want to do it.... felt I owed it to them.

Food Fight, Major Havoc, and Lunar Lander were all awesome games!  Honestly everything at the show was awesome and worked great. The effort to bring and keep the games up and running was greatly appreciated! :)
Always looking for Sega stuff, especially any of the Model2 games. If you have anything Sega you are willing to trade, send me a PM! :)
