You know I could grab it and arrange for it to make it your way. Lots of traffic on the Ottawa -> Montreal corridor.

Re: THE MAACA DAILY NEWS! Your daily read about YOU,the members!

I want to give a shout-out to all the techs out there. In the last year my job life has really ramped up and my time for coin-op and repairs has withered to nothing. And the workload shows no signs of diminishing for at least a year. I am so grateful to the people out there willing to take on my pr...

A few of us in Ottawa have been looking for something to rent cheap to hold a decent collection of pins to hold events and to place overflow games. Rent here in Ottawa is terrible. there is a great co-op in Vermont and then Bluffs in Toronto. Having something like that in Ottawa would be awesome. I...

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

We need Roger Sharpe to make a trip to Quebec City. Roger Sharpe is just the story everyone knows. There were AT LEAST 2 similar court cases in Canada where pinball was shown to be a game of skill, both predating Sharpe. Hell, there was even a guy in 1947 who used his skills to demonstrate that pin...

And jesus, stop complaining at games at 1$, even at that price im pretty sure its hard to get even on a 10k machine. Yup, and a quarter in 1979 is worth $0.82 today. When Black Hole came out in 1981 it was 50 cents a credit, or the equivalent of 1.32 today. And back then operators had no problem ge...

What I consider to be the "royal flush" of pinball... something I have witnessed only ONCE in almost 40 years of playing... ... the 4 knocks of a quadruple match!!! I remember getting that with buddies in 1987 at Pinocchio's on a High Speed. The place went completely nuts. We felt like we...

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

I'm indifferent. Newer games: I like extra balls turned off, and find the points option compensates fine. Older games: definitely like the extra balls on, especially considering the scoring is generally fairly shallow and going for the extra balls are part of the main tasks. Winning free games from ...
