    I am heading to the Brier in St. John's Newfoundland, CA at the beginning of March and wondering if there are any Pinsiders in the city, or if there are any locations to play some games. Any suggestions?

    How weird is it that I'm answering this question from spitting distance? I didn't even know there were other pinsiders from PEI here.
    * Edit: I've looked at game collection - S.L.

    I was in St John's for a few days in the fall, and one evening poked my nose into every pub downtown looking for pinball. 1 machine, a beat to crap WPT at Dooley's. Barely playable and so beat up it was not enjoyable. I'd start there, either they've replaced it with something that has GI, working targets, and more than 1 ball in the machine, or it's crumbled into dust since.

    Pinball aside, check out the Yellowbelly Brewery, yummy beers and food. Also the Rocket Cafe, great coffee, treats, and sandwich board. And if you are into museums etc, definitely go to The Rooms, that place is great (but skip their restaurant, high prices and terrible food).

    Have you looked on pin map ? It shows two locations in St Jhons . It still shows the wpt , there is also a South Park listed . If you go to pinside rs on map it also shows a couple of guys . Hope that helps !

    Don't bother going to Tilt Cove NL, pins do not play there very well.

    Thanks Evan. As one of the other posters noted, there are a couple on the Pinside map. The one with the most listed machines seems to be a business though.

    lol, reminds me of playing pinball machines on the ferry from NB to PEI, never made a lot of sense to me with the wave action...but I did pump my quarters in anyway.

    Funnily enough, there are a couple pins on the ferry to Les Isles De La Madeleine. The boat has stabilizers and the pins play fine (I guess as long as the weather doesn't get rough). No pins on the NFLD ferries though.
