2008 Raffle prizes
« on: June 06, 2008, 01:29:51 pm »
For once things are a little ahead of schedule on picking a raffle prize at least.

We have picked a pinball machine which we intend to offer as the raffle grand prize.  (We also intend to offer the choice of a good video game as an alternate - let the winner choose!)

In the past, Grand Prize winners have had the choice of a White Water pinball, Global VR's multigame Legends or Arcade Classics, The Getaway pinball, Wizard pinball, Marble Madness, T2 pinball, and many others.  This year the plan is to offer a Star Trek The Next Generation pinball.  (* We reserve the right to change this if, for example, something goes seriously wrong with the machine, but this is the actual machine we intend to give away.)  The game is currently playable at American Video Center, a movie rental store in the Cambrian Plaza at Union and Camden:

14442 Union Ave, San Jose, CA
(408) 558-9545,+san+jose,+ca&ie=UTF8&z=11&iwloc=A

Drop by and give it a play if you like.  The other games waiting for you to play there are:  The Simpsons Pinball Party, Cirqus Voltaire, The Addams Family, The Getaway: High Speed II, The Lord of the Rings, Dr. Dude, Indiana Jones: The Pinball Adventure, Surf 'n Safari, Paul Bunyan (1968 EM), Twilight Zone, and of course the Star Trek: The Next Generation, as well as a cocktail table Ultracade machine.
(All were diagnostic error free when I last left - me know if there are any problems with these games as we try to keep them in good working order!  Email is best:  chaney at atarigames dot com.)

Stern Pinball has provided us again with some more great stuff for the raffle:

We have added prizes:
A brand new Wheel of Fortune playfield and backglass

as well as a number of other translights including Spider Man, Indiana Jones, Playboy, and others.

They also sent a bunch of key fobs from their games and flyers for you collectors.

Also, Greg Maletic will be at CA Extreme showing his movie "Tilt:  The Battle to Save Pinball" and has generously donated a number of copies on DVD for us to give out.  See Greg's beautiful site at

Thanks to Stern and Greg for their generous support!

(If you would like to donate prizes, let us know - it is a fun way to get some exposure and make people happy while supporting the show!)

Happy flippin'

The raffle prizes were great.  Thanks to those who helped make that possible. It would certainly be nice if the big winners would show even an ounce of excitement.  I didn't even know who won this year. Last year, we knew who won, although he lacked excitement as well.  It would be cool in future years for you to make a bigger anouncement as to who the winner is, and which game they chose.  I am surprised that winning a $2400 machine (if it was Star Trek TNG) wouldn't at least warrant a woo hoo!
