Re: Northstar Pinball bar (Montreal), no free games

https://www.racj.gouv.qc.ca/communications/communiques-aux-titulaires/detail/nouvelle-reglementation-sur-les-appareils-damusement.html I only found it in french though. Go to the "annexe 2" chart, the first row is "machines à boules" (pinball). It is clearly stated that the machine must be register...

Re: Northstar Pinball bar (Montreal), no free games

Ok, Pinball is a class B category which looks like $340 per year per machine plus $243 annual licence for the establishment. Is that right? http://legisquebec.gouv.qc.ca/fr/ShowDoc/cr/L-6,%20r.%202 http://legisquebec.gouv.qc.ca/fr/ShowDoc/cr/L-6,%20r.%201 Can anyone link to the regulations and fees ...

Re: Northstar Pinball bar (Montreal), no free games

Just so I'm crystal clear on this, receiving an extra life in an arcade game like Pac-Man upon reaching 10,000 points would trigger this Quebec law and the associated fees outlined above? Or if you found the diamond in Mr. Do! and got a free credit? I remember Todd Tuckey walking the viewer through ...

Re: OPGS Games List

There wasn't a list I think a few collectors were going to make some game time decisions about what to list and what price.

I do know that pinhead had a couple Atari pin projects for sale, and a couple of other titles.

Re: OPGS Games List

I will bring out an arcade game - Sega/Gremlin Astro Blaster (mini/cabaret) - the last time I brought it out was in 2015. I hope to bring one more, probably Ms. Pac-Man, but just can't confirm until we're closer.

Re: 1980's news report that some router operators may appreciate

Thanks for posting this - really interesting news piece, I didn't even consider that vendors would be pushing their products to people who might purchase a couple of machines as an "investment."

Re: Billy Mitchel en direct Pac-Man

I never understood why he is not allowed to claim any new records if they are legit. Simple. He lied, manipulated and cheated. What Sparky said. The sanctity of any competitive endeavour is based on a simple but powerful tenet - honesty in competition. For repeated cheating, Donkey Kong Forum and T...

Canadian Kong-Off?

Last weekend, arcade Donkey Kong players gathered in Banning CA to participate in the annual "Kong Off" tournament - this year was number 7. During the stream, Billy Mitchell mentioned that he's been talking with someone in Montreal who wants him to come out and help with promotion (for his arcade?)...

Re: Midway-Adventureland in Ottawa Closed

Prices are way too high at this point fpr what is there but as reality sets the prices will drop. They are open to offers, selling price of most of the remaining items will be a fraction of the aaking price. A very cheap claw or redemption game would be fun in a game room if somebody had the room D...

Re: Midway-Adventureland in Ottawa Closed

That's a real bummer to hear. I see it was open for Family Day so this doesn't look like a closure that had any pre-announcements although maybe I missed it. Not sure what this means for staff unless this was discussed internally and not a surprise. Did you learn of the closure through the owner?

The regulars at the bar will be there. 8 to 10 of them and any locals that might have intended on bowling. I can quietly tell the locals, but I don't want it to turn into a Woodstock version of PinCon. What needs to be done to make this work? I guess it doesn't have to be a sanctioned event - why n...

That's awesome news Chris. It was a great time at the Olympia Bowl - I got a fair amount of bowling in with my daughter so we'll be competing for top score in between checking out the pins again this year.

Any chance you could borrow that sweet Missile Command cabaret you have at TARG? We could make a nice mini row.
