Re: Price Check

Like most games, condition is a big factor.
In recent months I've seen people ask as little as 5k and as much as 10k. Most seem to be in the $6500-$7000 range.

Re: TSPP:Reset and DMD problems.

First thing i would check is for any battery corrosion around the batteries. Corrosion on WhiteStar boards can be nasty as sensitive components are immediately underneath. Might not be your issue, but if haven't already inspected that area, you should anyways. Carefully inspect the legs on chips bel...

Re: Stern Pinball factory tour

So just wanted to add this follow-up in case anyone visits the Chicago area and hopes to tour the factory. I ended up getting a personal tour which lasted about 20-25 minutes. I could have spent all day in there... there are so many cool things to see. They were producing mostly Deadpool Pro and Pre...

I posted this on Facebook and think it's important I post it here as well I hope this natural disaster doesn't also destroy the show as after all the planning and expense, to not make anything on ticket sales could be devastating.

Pinball 2000 games never seem to sell as quickly... as the seller you definitely have to be a bit more patient.
But you've priced the game fairly and it'll sell eventually.

Stern Pinball factory tour

Am visiting Chicago in late September and would love to take part in a Stern factory tour.
Has anyone here ever been on one of these tours? If so, how did you go about finding tour dates and getting your name on the list?

Thanks in advance!!
