Unfortunately, I missed the Argentina v France final for the FIFA World Cup 2022 because I was on the road to Ottawa at the time. But France won! Wooohooooo! Well, Europe won. They got most of the nifty soccer pins that Gottlieb made in '82 called Striker. Luckily for me, Blackghost4 remembered my interest in the game, over 2.5 years ago!? Awesome. Big thanks, Fernando.

And big thanks to Jason (The Evener) too, for excellent help, as always.

I kicked my daughter's butt. 8-) Great game.

Big couple of days!

Shout out to Xylog for letting me babysit Genesis. Thank you!

Was great to see Warlock on his travels, and he took home an eclectic set of goodies, which helped me recover some space in my limited arcade room.

I also received an incredible piece of history, an extremely early pachinko machine from around 1931, made by the first pachinko machine manufacturer.
I'll write more about it another time on my blog.

We didn't have room for a tree this year, as this has been sitting non-functional in the living room. Got it running just in time for the family to come over:

Great to see the clear ramps that I hounded Mark (Freeplay40) for months to make, starting in 2014. But you have to remove the art from the drops and pop bumper caps!

Fun but frustrating game with nifty Bach tune.

There was a bally mata hari blocking it. Once I got into it, I just had to find the ball and put it in the right place.

Did you buy this from Geoff ?
If so, it's my old Ice Cold Beer, I bought it from Greg Kemnitz in Minnesota (SS Billirds) along with my last Williams Rat Race, many years ago.
Fun game, have fun. :)

It's currently on loan from a friend who ran out of space. It's crying out for a restoration but it's not mine!

I played Foo Fighters Pro and wow I'm a believer. This is Jack Danger's Jurassic Park. It's a revelation of shot design.
This will rival Godzilla for the highest ratings.
