Quoted from Minneapolispin:
In Minneapolis we’re lucky that have two amazing barcarcades (Tilt and Up/Down). All the vids and pins are a quarter. Tilt will charge $.50 for the new games like Alien, TNA, and Guardians of the Galaxy. It’s heaven. There are several places to play around the Twin Cities that are $.50-$1 a game, but I simply stopped going there once these places opened.
I was in MN a few months ago. As far as I'm concerned TILT is the holy grail of location pinball. Excellent selection/excellent prices and played perfectly.
Around here it varies but I'm far more likely to go to locations where games are $.50 than ones where the games are $1. And if they're $1 they better be well maintained and have replay be a credit (vs. just an extra ball)
