Can someone run this tourney for me? Don't think I am going to make it.

lion man.
This isn't a problem with tungsten bulbs because the filament remains red hot for a short duration after voltage is removed - long enough to appear lit persistently.

Thanks for running such a tight ship, Zoe.

Speaking of tight ships... it was a pleasure, as always to touch hands with everyone while playing.

I like the Standard as a bar and place to hang out, but I think the five machines in there is too tight... if it had 4, it'd be so much more pleasureful to play there. As it stands now, it's really hard to slap save without hitting the person next to you. And if someone shakes a machine next to you, you can almost feel it through the backglass.

I agree, but for the sake of accuracy, there are currently 6 machines.

A better solution than removing a machine: move the dang golf game.

Or even better! Move the big fake wall that's hiding those gambling machines. Just move it like 3 feet! There's so much room in that gambling area. That wall should be moved.

Who can count, anyways... if it is six, then leaving 5 still makes it a great place to stay.

I thought about the wall stuff, but that seemed like more work than could actually happen. But yeah... that wall is lame.

I was guessing, too, that the Golf and Buck Hunter aren't Richocet's... so moving them wouldn't necessarily be something they could just decide, whereas going down to 5 might be.

This is the stupidest conversation I have ever heard. Taking away a machine....you all should be ashamed of yourselves! I personally like touching hands while playing....hell touching butts is fun too!

The only time the issue of the machines being to close is during a tournament and all the games are being played at once. I have been there a number of times with just a few people and it is never an issue. You can just slide a machine a few inches this way or that. If anything they should put more machines in there!

I guess we're spoiled with machines, it's true.

So... wait, I'm gonna go into the ring with Steve Tyson? I want to wait for his face tattoo to be finished, though.
