Well... a grail pin has entered the gameroom. More on that later.

And... one of these, thanks to my Renfrew brother from another mother:

So... maybe a Habs/Leafs conversion? It is really nice. I will actually put this in my office. I can't play it alone, so not as distracting. LOL

Well, I am a simple man. So other than a Jungle Lord, Gtb Volcano and Bally Space Invaders, I am quite content! And I can play my old Jungle Lord close by.

I am picking up a pin in 2 weeks that I passed on years ago and always regretted it. Again nothing crazy. An Allied Leisure cocktail pin.

My "vibe" is "I never left the early 80's", with a dash of historical machines... because you corrupted me with the pinball history booth. LOL So my office will be stuck in the 1930's. I can practically smell the speakeasy hooch in the air.

that's great, I don't think I've seen that one before. The art was instantly recognizable as the guy that did the Eros One artwork. One R. Michael Torrey https://www.ipdb.org/search.pl?searchty ... l%20Torrey
I think his work is really amazing.

A real rough Genesis for me and a Williams Gusher woodrail, with a splendid playfield, but no backglass, for Singlezero.

Buddy even tossed me a mostly populated Gottlieb Tag Team playfield just to get rid of it.

Gusher is a very cool game! If people haven't seen it before, it's a woodrail with a great playfield gimmick of a bumper that lowers and rises
