Count me in James, it's a 10 minute drive for me, so no excuse really!😀

Thanks for the invite.

Oh, I also have the following going free (nothing too special) which I will offer to James first, as the host, and then anyone else if James doesn't want it (I can bring it with me):
- Standard Stern play field glass, it came from my BBH and is a bit scratched, but still usable.
- Spare pinballs, not bad condition.
- Set of four cabinet protectors in black

Looking forward to it and Merry Christmas

No worries, they are yours and I don’t want anything for them.

Looking forward to it!

The playfield glass is still up for grabs, so let me know. Would be good to have someone make use of it.

Less than a week to go! Very excited! Jokerz will be ready in time, theres a few minor things left to do but nothing that affects gameplay (i want to tidy up the cab, coin door and legs) and besides a few LEDs missing its good to go!

Looking forward to meeting you all!

James

Awesome! Depending on how many people we have I was thinking we all play 2 games on each machine with one wild card that can be played to replay a score. Then we work out standings out and do some sort of final? Haven't organised a comp before but want to try and keep it as chill as possible so we can just enjoy an afternoon of flipping!

Have you seen the scorecards that are used at the league meets? It sounds like you could use something similar. That's assuming they still use them, I haven't leagued for quite a while.

If I hadn't got disillusioned and dismantled it, I could have brought my virtual pin with Timeshock! on it. Add Timeshock! to the comp and I might actually win something.

The league slips had spaces for your scores and then someone (anyone) signed them as a witness.

Looking forward to it! Have been watching some Jokerz and Jackbot tutes, which I'm bound to immediately forget upon starting my first game.
You'll be fine, I've not got much of an idea on Jokerz myself. I've only played one game of it and that was just to test it was working while I was fixing it up. It's still not completely finished now but it's playable and pretty fast! I'm pretty lame at pinball so I don't expect to do too well myself :rofl:
