My first time at Pinburgh this year and I didn't get to compete, so I just soaked it in, spectated and chilled. Got to play a lot of machines I've never seen before. Favorite pins/moments:
1: New-to-me pins I loved: Speakeasy, Mars God of War, Dragon (BAO!), Party Zone; can't believe I've never played PZ before and the one with the lightning flippers was batshit! Safecracker, even though I didn't really know what the heck was going on most of the time. Too many others. Got to play a lot of my "White Whales" and attempt to put my initials up.
2: Watching the finals in the front row with my buds. Hearing Josh holler and kick was hilarious.
3: A few fangirl moments when 20 minutes after making a new friend I realize WHO that person actually is.
Too many others to name. Had a blast and at one point I turned to my friend and said "My face hurts from smiling so much." Definitely coming back next year and going to try and get a spot and actually compete.
