The UK Pinball Party draws ever closer. I'm sat at work counting down the last few hours.....can't wait till Saturday. As it's the only day I'll be at the show I'm planning on getting there for doors open and leaving when I'm kicked out
People at work keep asking "what you upto this weekend" and have strange look when I tell them I'll be playing pinball all Saturday.



What are other peoples plans?

Didnt get into Tron at first, but went back to it and ended up loving it. Really liked the flow, except the usual Stern build quality really put me off owning one. Same could be said of nearly all the Stern games that were at the show apart from one or two very nicely kept examples. That rolling stones was a joke. Weakest flippers of them all on a brand new game!



Anyway, good show overall. Got to play all the greats and loved doctor who the most probably, even the new canasta machines werent that bad. Very quick game for the style of play. Thoroughly enjoyed but 6hrs driving has done me in........

Just got back from the show....what a fantastic day




My first pinball party and the first time I've played nearly all of the pins their as I've only really been playing for 3 months or so. I really liked Tron, Whirlwind, LOTR and Fireball was really cool as well as all the usual suspects (MM , AFM etc). However there were two games that stood out for me and were my favs of the show.....Whitewater and Black Knight 2000.



I knew Whitewater was supposed to be great and was kind of expecting to like it tbh and I wasn't disappointed but the surprise for me was Black Knight 2000!!!! What a game, I don't quite know why but I love it
Does anyone know who brought the 2 Black Knights as I want to say thanks....and you've probably helped my decide what I want for my next machine.

Few more pics of an excellent show...



Good things:

- Loads of pins.



Bad things:

- Anyone thinking it was socially acceptable to fart in an enclosed room, at that temperature.

It was awesome. A huge thank you to those responsible for putting the Party together. What a weekend! Really think I need a Scared Stiff and a Dracula now! What is it with the undead?
