Re: OPGS Games List

OK, so with me booking a room in Ottawa, I will look into renting a small trailer. I could then bring 2 pins instead of just one.

Hmm.... Gottliebs are not represented much...

So... let's add GENESIS.

Starting week 7 in a row of extensive travelling each week.

Re: For Trade: Eight Ball Champ

Damn... this is one that has eluded me for years. GREAT game. Someone will be happy, as I have nothing to trade.

If you like a classic game with a lot of shots to aim for, more strategic play, this is a great one!!

Damnit... I had the idea to get it for Brian, as a scooter license starts at 14 years old... but this one has 125cc... listed as a motorcycle. Not a scooter.
