KCGameCON is November 30th through December 2nd. There will be over 20 pinball machines set up at this event on free play. Several KC pinball enthusiasts (myself included) are supplying games for this event. There is also a pinball tournament. This will be a good chance to meet other players, earn WPPR points, and play a bunch of different games. More information can be found at:
Medieval Madness in Knub’s Pub has the new color update. This isn’t ColorDMD, it is redrawn higher resolution animations. More info here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ymETYlxVrrs
I’m selling a 1991 Williams Slugfest. Details and pics here:
Update: The individuals have been caught although as of 1/7/15 the games have not been recovered.
Rob Anthony had several games stolen in mid-Missouri. His post about the theft is here.
Here is what was stolen:
-3 (yes three) Star Wars Episode One. One of which was Home Use Only, bought by me in ’99, with less than 100 plays. The game was immaculate and it kills me that it’s gone.
-Revenge from Mars
-Complete Star Wars Episode One kit, in original box, including PRISM and ROM board.
-2 Space Shuttle
-various pinball parts, including NOS AFM, SttNG assemblies, R&B backbox character plastics
-not pinball, but worth noting since they’re large boxes and likely with the pins-NIB portable AC/Heater and NIB Craftsman shop/bar stool
These pins were taken from mid-Missouri, near Davisville, within the last couple of weeks. If you see anything turn up anywhere in the country that doesn’t seem right, please let me or the Crawford County Sheriff’s department know.

I haven’t had time to get a new (or returning) game ready to put in Pizza West this month. November and December are always crazy months for repairs as everybody wants their games working for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s. But I did get some eye candy for Theatre of Magic. ColorDMD did a great job, I think it looks really nice.
There has been quite a bit of information released about The Wizard of Oz regarding its overall design, fit and finish, gameplay (yes, there are videos out there), and rules. I figured I would delve inside the machine and look at some of the engineering and parts used.
