82: 3 False Starts…The SFGE Story

July 2019

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!!)

June 2016

We are back from the Southern-Fried Gameroom Expo and in front of the mics to recap our thoughts and all the high (many) and low (one…stupid tire) points along the way.  Needless to say, it was a great weekend full of fun and excitement.  We reconnected with listeners and friends, got some good swag (beer), interviewed some very interesting people, put on a couple of sessions and met lots of great folks to boot.

This month we feature one of the first audio segments from SFGE and are proud to feature the “From Tron to Curveball: Bill Adams’ Life in Classic Gaming” session where we have the privilege of interviewing Bill Adams and talk about everything from developing Tron to naming Satan’s Hollow to the legend of “OScope”… it’s great insight and a must-listen for some fantastic history on some beloved Bally/Midway games.

If you aren’t familiar with Bill Adams, here’s a quick excerpt from his bio:
