Got up early and hung over to head down to the US to make Capt. Card a Canadian citizen.

Edit: plays perfectly....BG and PF are rough though.

Pinball is sooooo boring these days.

Pre-arcade-game-collecting (almost 10 years :? (since smoking cigarettes too! :D)), I played darts in the garage with in-laws on occasion. And I never ever played electronic darts either! But have since become aware of them and have been interested for years. Opportunity came up and I got it! Nifty games and don't have to use chalk to track scoring anymore! phew!

... but no Cricket, darnit. Would love to 'upgrade' to an Arachnid 6000/Super 6 Plus II.

2 small new additions to my space-limited arcade...
Even had to import pennies to play them! Expect to play these at the Ottawa Gameroom show come September.

Those two are so cool.

Had no idea they existed and quickly looked them up. Pace Manufacturing Co. made a bunch of games! You need 'Pen-Nee-Golf'!

*edit: Looks like these might be re-manufactured games. Still really nifty.

Yep, it's an extended production, they are made from the leftover remaining casts!

Pen-Nee-Golf is the game same as Whiz Ball, but with different graphics
