Not a bad idea. But that takes a lot of people to get that thing here.

How many?

Congratulations on getting some of your freedom back.

Last time I used one big friend and four day laborers from Home Depot.

I supervised as this is particularly dangerous on such a big table.

Damn, I thought they broke down into manageable parts. Nice stuff has weight, no getting around it.

It does break into three pieces. But the flat surface is one big flat surface, and the entire rail is only held there by gravity.

That rail is very difficult to manage and could break if not handled properly, I would think.

The flat section bows under it's own weight (or seems to want to) and is super duper freaking heavy.

The legs down bottom are the most manageable, but still requires three or four people nevertheless.

I think that you might able the break the legs down below a bit, but if so, not worth it as it's the most manageable anyway.

You just gotta have a lotta dudes, basically.

Reminds me of when I bought a good quality slate pool table.

Hired pros to move and set it up in my den.

That game was such a quarter eater! Right up there with Defender for me.

There is a Dice conference where Eugene says, "defender had an average game time of 37 seconds."

Of course he is including the hour long players in the game to calculate that average and the median is far less than 37 seconds.

This is monetization of skill in the arcade market.

We have much more consistent game times for the best and worst players for one reason: we can give you money instead of free game time.

Still monetizing skill like the early 80's arcade games though. Same game mechanics from 35 years ago -- monetization of skill.

I can pull up the quote from Eugene in that dice conference about how monetization of skill works if anyone is interested. But don't want to do the work if nobody wants to talk on the subject in depth.

I think Eugene's best game only has about a 4 second average play time. Super Times Pay.
