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

Not a deal breaker for me... I'll play at NorthStar regardless. It is kind of a nice pat on the back to get a free game every now and then. They can set the free game score fairly high to avoid people just running up free credits. Sounds like that's still going to lead to additional expenses for th...

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

The poll is a bit biased. :) This outrage is misplaced. Businesses like bars operate on razor thin margins to begin with, this one in particular invests way more heavily in their clients' enjoyment than any other place would, by a large amount. I make a point of stopping in Montreal just for the Nor...

Re: Marco Specialties shipping ... WTF????

I backed out of an order there last week because they wanted $80 USD shipping as the cheapest and slowest option for a tiny, light package. On top of that, they don't let you pay in USD, Marco converts to $CAD at an exchange rate of 45% and charges you that (where paypal would have charged 31% on th...

Re: Space is a premium... and the big fish syndrome

Same thing here in Charlottetown, with similar numbers. I saw a study a year or two ago and we have some of the highest commercial rents in the country, while also having the highest commercial vacancy. Its probably easier in small towns for a monopoly or oligopoly on each estate to form, I guess.

Walking Dead - found / pending

Looking for a TWD.

I'm in PEI. I'll drive as far as Ottawa for a game. Anything further I'd need the seller to be able to ship.

Thank you!

Re: Oculus Rift S blown me away

Beat saber is amazing. Robo recall is also great. Third on my list is Super Hot. Serious Sam is also really sweet.

I found Arizona Sunshine to be way overrated, and would avoid even though it seems to have a high rating (and price!)

The green smiley faces makes me unsure what you mean. Are you confirming the show is a go and that it truly will rock my world (which I'm hoping for), or is this joking/sarcasm because the power grid is rubble?

Getaway restoration stuff, bulk lot of NOS slingshots, coin mechs - can bring to Ottawa show

Heading to the Ottawa show this weekend. I've been digging through my pinball shelves and and have come up with things that I'm not going to use soon, but may be needed by someone. If anyone's interested then please contact me before I leave for Ottawa. I'd rather be playing that trying to make deal...
