I decided to head to Toronto for the long weekend (for those of us who work in Quebec), so unfortunately I'll be missing this. Someone else will need to dethrone Honey Badger! ;)

Have fun everyone!

Works great, has two RCA ports (front and back) and an S-Video port at the back in addition to the coax port. Comes with the remote. I’ve currently got a digital tuner box and ra...

Tentatively in.

Note that this event can’t be IFPA-sanctioned because attendance is restricted. In order to earn WPPR points, the event needs to be open to everyone.

Re: Canadian National Pinball Open @ Canada PinCon 2018

Thanks to everyone who has generously offered up games for the tournament! It would be great to have a couple more to keep lines short, so if you plan to bring a game anyway and have one you think will hold up for six hours of play, please consider putting it in the CNPO bank. It may get a lot of pl...

Re: Toronto: Tilt Arcade

You obviously weren't there on a Friday or Saturday night! I went on Good Friday and the place was packed. Felt much less crowded than the last location, though, which was nice. Definitely worth a visit, but I recommend avoiding peak times, if you can. Unless you feel like watching individuals put i...

LF: Bally #555 wedge lamp sockets

Does anyone happen to have a few old Bally #555 wedge lamp sockets kicking around? I'm looking for three, ideally, but have an immediate need for one. It's for the lights behind the middle stand-up targets on my Elektra. The metal of the bracket got fatigued and snapped off. See photo below. image1(...
