Here we are – at the end of another year and with that comes a bit of reflection and some looking forward to what we hope will be an excellent 2020. We have a bit of a mash-up show this month as we draw December to a close – we square off on our monthly updates just as normal, but we then detour a bit and get right into what we think is some great “New Years Eve humor” courtesy of Cale Hernandez (of Marco Specialties) and Mike Vinikour (of Stern Pinball) as Brent and I had some time to sit down with them at the 2019 Grand Ole Gameroom Expo last month and talk about quite a few subjects besides pinball – it’s good fun and the guys there never disappoint. We also spend some time with Patrick McKennon (of Music City Pinball) as he tells us about his newest venture – a combined pinball & arcade “destination” location that is coming to the Nashville area in 2020.
We are also proud to announce a Christmas contest, made possible by Brad Hunter of Lit Frames. Be sure to enter before Feb. 15th for your chance to win one of 25 limited-edition Superman ’78 translites signed by renowned pinball artist Christopher Franchi! Full details are available here - https://www.brokentoken.com/contests/win-a-superman-78-translite-courtesy-of-litframes/
We hope you enjoy the show – thank each and every one of you for the support this past year and we look forward to a great 2020!
We’re back from July travels with all kinds of great arcade and pinball talk and a few stories to boot from our time at the 2019 Southern-Fried Gaming Expo. Not only does the Panther travel to Atlanta in Business Class (not really… it was the front seat of Brent’s car) it inspired a host of people who wanted to buy “Panther Vision” neon glasses! I think we’ve created a cottage industry by accident…
In addition to the updates, news and
(burning) spending of Brent’s money (we buy flybacks, key locks and an Asteroids multi control panel, along with some other most excellent items) we’re joined by Stern Pinball’s own Mike Vinikour, Circus Maximus’ James Loflin and the Grand Ole Gameroom Expo’s David Corrigan.
We may be travel weary this month, but that doesn’t mean we didn’t have a good time and turn up short for words!! Heck, we even speculate on Stern’s next game (which proved itself to be a double-hitter: both Star Wars “The Pin” and Jurassic Park!!)
