This episode, I start off with a few technical details about how the animations function within the Multi for the mechanical backbox number movements.

Today's game is the 1932 Northwest Coin Machine Company Fan-Tan.  An interesting roulette game with a playing card theme.

The York show is coming!  October 12th and 13th, 2018, please join us in Bingo Row for several special spectacles.

 

 - A group of bingo pinball machines free to play all weekend

 - The Multi-Bingo, featuring all 142 domestically produced bingo pinball machines

 - A brand NEW Silver Sails, still sealed in the box, to be publicly unboxed on the show floor Friday.  If it is playable, it will be available for play!

 - Giveaways for any four or five in a row on any machine at Bingo Row - limited edition posters of the Bingo Row illustration by Ryan Claytor!

 - And some other surprises that I cannot name yet.  

Join us!  Win a poster!  Watch a historic unboxing!

 

For the second half of the episode, I interview Sophia, as Ticker Tape might be leaving the building on Friday.  She wanted to give her thoughts on the games and eventually started telling me about "po-ta-to, to-mah-toe" and expounding on what makes Double-Up so great.

I am back from a very special vacation - Dennis Dodel was willing to open his gameroom to a few of us traveling to Wayne Neyens' 100th birthday celebration!

I had an excellent time and discuss some of the games and what makes them special.

Thank you Dennis!

Next, I traveled to Wayne's home to help him ring in his 100th year  and discuss some of what made that special event so extremely special to me.

Thank you Wayne, for being such an amazing man - you are an inspiration, and I am so honored and humbled to have been one of the people cheering you on at your party.
