Re: Saved from a part-out... Black Pyramid

Always love to hear the story of another machine getting saved! The internet might be a horrible thing, but at the very least it's allowed so many varied talented people to come together. We now have people making backlgasses, cabinet stencils, formed ramps of all types, re-engineered circuit boards...

Re: FS: Ranma 1/2 pachinko (CRA羽根らんま1/2R)

This is fun! And bright! And loud! And fun! Buy this! I should mention that it is NOT actually all that loud! Games come from the parlours with generally ZERO volume controls ( unless the specific model has some embedded in software, ) but this machine has two potentiometers added to the back to re...

FS: Ranma 1/2 pachinko (CRA羽根らんま1/2R)

Ranma 1/2 pachinko (CRA羽根らんま1/2R) this is a 2015 full sized pachinko machine imported from Japan. Unlike most modern pachinko machines that act as a video slot machine, this is a "hanemono" machine, meaning the ball must travel through an extensive physical course to award a win. So instea...

Re: catacomb price check

It is one of the Classic Stern titles that has shot up in price the last few years, (along with Stargazer, Quicksilver, and to some degree Seawitch), so you do see pretty high asking prices on it on occasion. I don't know about price, but I wanted to chime in and say that Catacomb definitely lags t...

Get one of those, slap in a all-in-one aftermarket board (~$500) with the bonus rulesets, and they're good. Gottlieb Sys...

Re: Fortune teller machine

They don't come up very often and original working ones go for big bucks. Depending on what you want projects can be found.

Re: World Poker Tour - NOW $4,600 - New pics added!

WPT is a great game, but if I'm trading off NGG I want it to be a theme that all the kids will be into too. Even my partner would be in to Star Trek.

How about WPT + Cash for NGG?


I think I am saving my NGG to work towards a trade for a modern Stern. I want a Star Trek Pro eventually. Like a fun game with great code and minimal mechanical fuss.
