I'm hoping Houdini is at MGC to get some play on it. I wonder what is causing the resets since it uses the PROC boards. Is it resetting during multiball?

Good hanging with you guys today. Felt good to throw a few DIKs up today..... What a great place.

I got a little solo time on Houdini and I really liked it. Too bad it rebooted on me twice in three games :(
Great time. Nice mix of machines. Hard to beat the price. By the time we left we were paying $4.00 an hour for pinball. Machine were in good shape and Kyle was working on things as they would fail.

It was a zoo in there because of Saturday. Might need to check it out during the week.

Bring your sunglasses to play Game Show. 8-)

It seemed logic related and not power related. Both games reset when a mode was being introduced with the ball paused at the curtain/stage.

Both times I was on ball 2, and my score was in the 400k/500k range.

It was a great time and Houdini is a good game. They especially did a great job with the display. It does become a little too dark at times in the multiball...equivalent to the blinding you take in Game of Thrones...lol
Glad you made it out Tim, it was awesome to see you all you guys.

Everyone who is playing pinball wins, cause all the stank is off in another room. :)

That room was rip.

Tim N. wanted to go and steamroll the kids on DDR out of the way. I told him no and that he needed to be an adult........for once.

I'm thinking a boom box playing Do Ya Think I'm Sexy and some glittery short shorts would send those DDR amateurs running for the hills. 8-)

You would think...... I rolled into that room on some rollerblades and a mankini and they didn't even notice..... They seem to have the passion for DDR....
