Re: Need shipping from Toronto to Ottawa this weekend

Congrats on the Pharaoh :-)

If you decide to rent a van, I might need a game brought back and would chip in. I'm currently in discussion with my brother in law to see if he can bring it. Afraid he won't be able to bring another game, though.

Re: News on the Canasta 86 pin

Let me ask you this, would you buy it for $4k Canadian? Prices of pins will only go up, salaries and components can't always stay low even if you get them made in China. take care Nope the LCD display doesn't matter to me, I like the DMD. The game looks as basic as an EM, so LCD display or not it's...

Re: Stern NIB Best bang for the buck?

Damn... I always thought NIB meant New In Basement... shows what I know. LOL I did see a NIB RBION go for 2900$ recently. So my vote stays. Starburst's 3000$ WOF deal a ways back was also a NIB great deal. Pin is fun as well. Good luck getting those deals now. I don't think you will see a NIB Stern...

Re: News on the Canasta 86 pin

At $5K, they won't be in the market place for long. It looked really, really basic. Doesn't hold a candle to a new Stern. Perhaps their pricing will demonstrate to folks that it costs alot to make a pinball and Stern isn't just blowing smoke when they say they need to reduce costs.

Re: Stern NIB Best bang for the buck?

Yes NIB IM over Batman. If it's SM vs IM I enjoy both, and you cannot go wrong with any of these two. Seems that Batman is not a favorite amongst us.... Medvet has spoken up yet. She LOVES her BDK. She both both a BDK and IM at around the same time. She can write why she loves Batman. For me, the g...

Re: Stern NIB Best bang for the buck?

Has it been released yet? I haven't seen anything written on the actual game play. I suggested SM as there is no way Avatar is going to beat it in terms of gameplay. It's just not possible with the new approach being followed by Stern: less toys and less depth. That said, I really, really dig IM, so...

If you can still get SM new and you are sold on getting new, that's the one I would recommend. Awesome game and timeless theme.

I was a vid guy for years before getting into pins. After owning just about 40 different vids, nobody can tell me a vid doesn't get boring in the home. The only vid I've ever had that didn't get boring was Robotron. It's the only vid I regret selling. Robotron is the best vid ever!!! I also had a d...

What's the big deal about not having a fixed width? You can just size your browser window. Fixed! :-)

The best pinball is always when you want to have a quick game. Yesterday, we were all set to go out and my youngest says he has to go to the bathroom and it's not pee.

Vids have a place in a game room. The 60 in 1s, 100 in 1, MAME, etc. are all great. Driving games absolutely rock. My kids love the driving game we have. They are also really digging the 101 in 1 Neo Geo that we are borrowing -- thanks Zak!
