So... who's ready for ReaperCon 2019?

Outside of the freeplay guys, there aren't a lot of big collections in this area. IT doesn't hurt that several other companies have tried to copy their model of the bar-arcade and will snap up anything in good condition. (side note, if anyone wants to get away one evening over to Free Play, they are amazing. One of the largest collections of uprights anywhere and they rotate the selection constantly. Plus they pride themselves on keeping their machines the originals instead of emulators and do all of their own maintenance in house.)

 

Only been to the one in Richardson.  Where is the closest one to the con?

Denton. There's a 3rd in... Alexandria?  I forget and don't know the area.  But they ship machines between locations, too.

The Ed shirts, in case you might not know, are the ones I sent into Reaper Live as a Mystery Box in episode #34.  I forget not everyone watches that, so might not know how they came about.  I put them up to let other people who wanted in on the fun get them (and hopefully all wear them Saturday at the con).

 

 

I had noticed those, although more by luck than intent--I only watch about half of the Reaper Live episodes.  It probably says something about me that it was a higher priority in my mind to get t-shirts done before I've even booked plane tickets...  :upside:

I think I remember hearing that the one in Denton is smaller than the ones in Richardson and Arlington, but it's the only one I haven't made it to yet. The one in arlington is very nice though

But the one in denton only has a $6 cover, with all the games set to (ahem) free plays.  The ones in arlingotn and richardson are $11

I have a 2 player version of the Simpsons arcade cabinet....

If someone wanted to fund the cost of a Uhaul I could bring it. (Don't want to risk getting it rained on plus my little truck is already fairly full.)

It also has removable game cartridges could have other games...

Although I think the best route would be to build a RaspberryPi cabinet and have ALL THE GAMES. 

 

If a Gauntlet cabinet showed up, I think I'd have to give up the Hobby Hijinks area so I cold camp out there. (and get ridiculed by @buglips*the*goblin every time I shot the food)

We need Gauntlet!!!

 

I tried.  None of the three (I, II, or Legends) to be found.  But Free Play might be close by, and might have one of 'em.

well, Who wants to go en-mass over to Free Play on Thursday or Friday night?

 

Always a good thing to get away from the Con at least once while there. Con is awesome &so is the location,  but again nice to get out & do things else where while you're there.

 

I'd be in if I was going this year!

Does anyoneknow if Anne Forster wil actually be at reapercon? I think she's the only person on my list I didn't get to meet last time.

She usually is, I've seen her at every one I've been to.
