Re: FT/FS Stern Galaxy

Il faut enlever les balles et la boite de monnaie si presente. On met les balles, les vis des pattes et les cles dans la boite de monnaie ou un autre sac ou contenant qu'on apporte au cas.

Re: DE Jurassic Park

There is a guy on pinside working on an awesome 3D printed T-Rex. Progress is slow but he is getting closer to work on his first batch.

Re: Bench tools you can't live without

I bought a Hakko 808 over 5 years ago and it's still awesome. But I'm pretty sure there's a newer version though. Tonnes of positive feedback: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/group-buy-on-the-hakko-808-desolder-gun-kit/page/5#post-716027 It appears the 808 was replaced by the FR-300 which w...

I swapped a channel out of my Bell Fibe subscription to make way for the Adult Swim channel and I watched my first Rick & Morty Episode.

Re: Nouvelle Arcade à Laval!!

I went there Thursday evening. The parking was overflowing because the cafe next door was full with a young crowd. The arcade was not busy, but there were still more patrons than I expected. Most pinballs are 75c a play or $2 for 3 plays. The other pinballs did not have a price card so I could not t...

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

Ok, Pinball is a class B category which looks like $340 per year per machine plus $243 annual licence for the establishment. Is that right? http://legisquebec.gouv.qc.ca/fr/ShowDoc/cr/L-6,%20r.%202 http://legisquebec.gouv.qc.ca/fr/ShowDoc/cr/L-6,%20r.%201 Can anyone link to the regulations and fees...

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

Just so I'm crystal clear on this, receiving an extra life in an arcade game like Pac-Man upon reaching 10,000 points would trigger this Quebec law and the associated fees outlined above? Or if you found the diamond in Mr. Do! and got a free credit? I remember Todd Tuckey walking the viewer through...

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

As a teenager I recall how much fun it was to find a newish machine on location where the extra ball or free game thresholds were still set fairly low. :) It certainly is an element of pinball and would take away from the experience. Reminds me how excited I was when I realized the free game thresh...

Back in the mid 80's me and my friend played pinballs all day long for 25 cents each.


Nothing would please me more than to learn from the experts. That was the main point why I joined the MPL.

I don't have the new rules, that's why I asked.

Re: Northstar Pinball bar (Montreal)

This is getting more depressing with each post. This is all part of the plan to keep Loto-Quebec's monopoly because if you win anything they call it a lottery or gambling. Yeah right, then my salary is also lottery and gambling. Even then, an extra ball is part of gameplay. I've never referred to i...

Yes, it's not downtown anymore, but I believe it's in a good location for the long run. It's fairly close to Centropolis, which has a nice nightlife for all ages. The area north is also expanding rapidly, with condos going up, and much of the land being owned by SmartCentres I believe. Allow me to ...

Re: Northstar Pinball bar (Montreal)

Wait... $145 per year? Is that per machine or does it include all the pins. Does the city of Montreal even have bylaw officers that go around and check this stuff? THAT seems like a bigger waste of tax money. Montreal had a by-law that prohibited pinball on most of its territory until a couple year...

Do they still offer free games on promotion nights with a fixed cover charge?
A free game has no value for those nights but is still a rush to achieve.
