Re: FS Various Games

I have never seen a rotation viii in person. And you are getting 2 of them. Can't wait to try one out. Best thing about those 4 player sit downs, you can play poker on them too. :D ;)

Loved his interview last month. Hope he continues on with his pinball passion even if it's not going to be his 9-5 daily grind anymore.
Good Luck R.A.B.

For those that don't know, this game is like a budget version of Joker Poker. Super fun! ??????????????????

I would have said, and am saying, the exact opposite. Freddy is a better pin than Waterworld, but most pins are. Just my opinion. The only good thing about Waterworld is you can usually pick up much cheaper.

Re: Battery Replacement

I thought that some of them don't hold the time and date. Also, two pieces of round dowel, with 2 washers with leads soldered on, attached to a $1 3 AA battery holder is WAY simpler than unsoldering a chip and installing a socket and spending over $20 a machine. Much less time,effort and money. If I...

I typically switch out all my batteries in Jan. or Feb. I was having problems with Judge Dredd and noticed that the batteries w...

Re: Is Sparky okay?

I feel terrible about this situation. Sparky replaced the flipper bats on my EB at pincon. For various reasons (vacation, stripped leg bolts, life in general, other pinballs to play) I only got it back on its legs last week. Guess what I found inside the cabinet...a whole assortment of flipper bats...

Thanks for the offer Chris but I want to be there on the weekend and I do still have to work this week. Life was easier when I wasn't retired and knew my schedule for months in advance, now I don't know from 1 week to the next where I'll be or what I'll be doing.

Anyone from Tri-Cities, Guelph, London, TO or surrounding area heading to PinCon??

I know it's late notice but it looks like I can free up my schedule and am looking to share a ride to Hawkesbury and maybe even room share. I don't have a room booked yet!

If you are within an hour or so of K-W I can work with your schedule to get to PinCon. Let me know.

Thanks

I know it's hard to believe but 4 hours away for a pin nowadays is a short drive. I estimate that there are dozens of members here who can tell you about driving over 8 hours...
