Thanks guys for putting together the show and thanks again for help with moving things.  Steve's brother is a big dude and should be lent out to the other shows for moving games :-)

Another great show! The layout of the rooms worked great. Games were coined and working. Lots of fun machines there. Lots of variety.

Thanks to the south FL crew for bringing so many games and to all the volunteers and contributors. Even managed to score me some BISCUIT money!!

Here's a video of the 80s party...

Thank you Steve and Doug & the whole Jax crew, it was an Awesome show! I had a great time and it's always nice to catch up with villagers,etc. I'm glad we (the South Fl. crew) could help out and support & bring games up for everyone to enjoy, that's what it's all about.

By today I just couldn't play my wrists hurt so bad :)

I'm a little sore too, but for entirely different reasons.  :-)

Glad you had a great time Brian! Thank you for bringing such cool games for us to share with the folks up here in Jacksonville!

The positive vibes emanating from this show were amazing.
It was a pleasure to come up and be a part of it.
Thank you Steve, Dug, and the Jax crew for all the time spent in putting it all together.

I had a great time!  Thanks to everyone for providing another place to showcase games and host a competitive pinball event.

Always nice hanging out with my pinball friends.

Had a blast as well :).  Steve, Doug, and the numerous volunteers did a wonderful job of making it run smoothly (or at least appear that way to the public :P) and they definitely raised the bar compared to last year's show.  You also have to tip your hat to the Miami guys for travelling the length of the state to share so many games.

It was nice to meet a few of you for the first time, but it was especially nice to meet Robert/thepita007 as he went above and beyond the call of duty to get that goofy hoops working and to the show.  He even went home Saturday night and dug through his parts to find the piece that broke on the machine Saturday so he could send it home with me as a working game :).   

Road Runner?

Bring it to FreePlay and maybe we can work something out ;D.  I hated that game when I played it at GameWarp a couple years back as I never lasted more than 30 seconds.  However after watching someone play it I gave it another try and was finally able to crack 100k.  By Sunday it seemed the joystick needed a bit of adjustment or something as it was hard to go full speed left, but I still enjoyed it more than any other title. 

Oh, and even though I have no money or space, I now also want an America's Most Haunted and a Gottlieb Haunted House; had a ton of fun playing both :D.

Thanks again to everyone for the kind words ... still delivering games (and keys and trophies and tools).

If I have something that belongs to you and I haven't reached out to you yet for a delivery time, please call me. I have more than a few machines stored in Randy's barn at the moment.

Maybe one of them is yours?  :-)
