As is traditional, Saturday at the Texas Pinball Festival begins with the Swap Meet, run by the DFW Pinball & Arcade Club and held in the car park behind the hotel.
The first order of the day was to get fresh donuts and coffee generously provided by Dunkin’ Donuts.
All around the car park, cars, trucks and trailers were opened to reveal a wide mix of pinball and game parts and machines.
There was great excitement at 8am when Fun opened up a trailer of project games and assorted cabinets and playfields they were clearing from their warehouse.
The main show hall opened at 10am, with the first of a busy day of seminars taking place at midday when the Circus Maximus team talk about their Kingpin project. We’ll be back later with full details of all the seminars and a tour of the main hall.
