Reboot in Dunedin
« on: July 14, 2023, 01:07:39 PM »
I recently went to Reboot, in Dunedin, with some friends. But it was so crowded, loud, and waiting 45 minutes for a machine put a buzzkill on our night. What I would like to know: Are there certain times or days where it is less crowded?
Newbie so be nice

This Thursday at 5PM, $15 buys you in to play in tourney starting at 7.  Sierra will be the host & she is great.

That sounds like fun but I'm not nearly at that level.

That might be a good spot for a local Village meet up.  It's a cool location and they have a bunch of great games.

Don’t be intimidated!
Worst case scenario you get knocked out early, but get to enjoy a fun atmosphere with other people that share your hobby.

Agreed! Go for it!  Several years ago my mom (who is not a "pinball player" per se) played in her first pinball tourney EVER at 72 and came in 12th out of 30 players ahead of some heavy hitters!

Just have fun.  That is the point :)
