Re: So... what is the future of new pinballs?

Interesting topic Sparky! While the whole Mandalorian hooplah is insane (IMHO), I fully understand why ppl have rushed the distributors with their G's...it's called "hype". Same thing for the Smart phones, the gaming consoles, the EV's, etc. I still remember the early-2000's (2002-03) at Chicago Exp...

Too early for 2021. I rather wait until next year. Besides, the 31st is my wife's birthday. Ain't happening. Lol
Baaaahhhhh...Just bring her with you and add some stops at Dorney Park, Hershey, Yuengling Brewery, shopping at the outlets, etc.

C"mon Sparky!!!! You can do this! :)

Just a heads up that its popularity seemed to have increased its price to $849 at most locations...

You can still find very limited stock @ $799...if you're lucky and not doing "cash and carry".

Re: Any of you tried the Arcade1up Pinball machine yet?

Thanks for the update! :)

my follow-up question is: did it feel to small/cramped to play this machine? no lag issues?

I might need to take a cross-town drive to go see and try it out. I would like to try the same version too, but any version is a good head start.

thanks again! :)

Quick update... I did check 2 Brick stores yesterday. No Pinballs (A1U or AG), just a few arcades at each location. One of the locations had the "Legends Ultimate" arcade game, which is bigger than the Arcade1Up ones (even with the riser), but is not full size. However the table is at the same size....
