Re: Got The Grail

So I played Punk for the first time ever yesterday and what a great pin to play! I can understand why you like it so much. Rare pin indeed.

Re: Your Pinball Status 2019

Well I hope to finally get my "holy grail pin" called Cosmic Gunfight in 2019. I have played it many times and came close 2x to buying one only to have it sold even though I said yes. I learned that no deal is complete until the cash is in hand and the pin is in the vehicle! But that is wh...

Batman 66

Ok so while I was at the Playdium Store I had the chance to try out the next pin that I was very curious about - Batman 66 ! There are so many colours on this pin and I think that Stern hit the nail on the head for nostalgia and reliving those moments as a kid watching Batman on TV. It is fast and f...

Dialed In is a great pin to play

Today I had the wonderful opportunity to try out the new "Dialed In" pin from Jersey Jack that was set up only a few hours earlier at the Playdium Store and I have to say that my first impression is that this is a great fun game! This is a regular sized pin not a wide body like the other J...

Re: allentown Pinfest or Michigan pinball show

I enjoyed both events but I found MPE to be just as much fun for a shorter car ride. At Allentown there were better deals to buy pins and more machines. If I want a deal, I go to Allentown. If I just want to play lots of pinball and save time commuting, then it is MPE.

Re: Favourite pin & Favourite beer

Favourite winter beer is "Chimay Premiere" a strong Belgium ale. In the summer a nice cold "Shock Top" hits the spot.

How do I choose a favourite pin when I like so many? I will therefore narrow it down to my missing holy grail pin - Cosmic Gunfight!

Looking forward to the open house Mike. I always enjoyed visiting the "Church" and had a blast playing the pins. Will you consider a tourney in the near future?

It breaks my heart to think that someone would do this to a pin that I have been looking for for years. Sparky, take care of this pin and I hope that you can bring it back to life! Go Sparky !!

Re: Pay to Play

Whenever I can I will throw some coins in for a game or two. I just came back from Niagara and played a Terminator pin which worked great. No issues, operator obviously takes care of that pin which is good to see so it is worth supporting them.

Re: I got interviewed on Gameroom Junkies :)

That was a great interview Eric, good speaker. I had no idea of your gamesroom setup and it sounds very cool. I think I will need to make another "Tri-City" visit one league night.

Can you post a pic for your token floor?
