    Anyone here been to The Pint in Toronto? They look like they have a really nice lineup of older pins but I've just never been down there.

    Where is a cheap place to get ground braid wire? Changing out the cord on an EM a 3 wire and want to ground out the metal cabinet parts.. Amazon only has $$ copper braid I've found.

    #2654 1 year ago

    Hey Calgary guys, any idea of where a guy could search for a furnished basement suite or something to rent for 3+ months? I accepted a callout for work there and I need a furnished place for 3 guys. I have been looking at Airbnb so far but looking for something I can rent monthly. Job is supposed to be on the west side I think.

    #2655 1 year ago

    Never mind I found what I was looking for. Rentfaster.ca Hope to make a bunch of your tourneys, see you Monday at pinbar.

    Anywhere in Moose Jaw to get a game in to try a different machine or two? Heading down next weekend, the oldest has Track provincials down there.

    I live just outside Moose Jaw. There aren’t any public locations with machines in the city. You’re totally welcome to come to my place for a beer and try out my machines.

    PM if you’re interested. Cheers.

    Thx, if I can pull it off i'll fire you a pm.

    FYI: As the official website isn't clear/explicit Vancouver Flipout 2019 has been cancelled. They're hoping to return in 2020.

    Please don't reply asking why, what happened, etc. We don't need this thread being shut-down.

    Is the Trap closing in Calgary? Are the games set to move somewhere else?

    Quoted from Willathrilla:

    Yes and yes.
    Trap is turning into a brew pub.
    Won’t have enough space for all the games.

    We have moved to Woods Well in the SE.

    Who owns the pins at the Edmonton airport?! They should be ashamed of themselves! That Indiana Jones is beat to shit and neglected beyond words! I was there two years ago and it was pathetic then.. just seen a pic of it today.. same shit! Wowzers, someone go rescue that thing!

    #2679 1 year ago

    Yeah they terrible, unplayable even. Played them after yegpin and damn.

    I guess travelers keep putting enough money in so no incentive to fix them. Little kids don’t know or care if stuff is broken.

    #2680 1 year ago

    Calgary airport same thing last year, I sent them an email, they replied and said thx for letting us know, we'll send someone out to look at them.

    I would love to take that Indy pin off their hands to finally finish my decal target set. No sense in getting a restored one to do what I want.

    Christmas doesn't have much on getting a box of fresh pinball parts!!! I know we bitch about shipping costs up here and it sucks, BUT I want to toss a huge thank you for the SECOND time an awesome pinsider orangegsx that has accepted pinball parts for me and forwarded them on up to Sask. This help is so appreciated and I have saved huge on shipping costs.

    Can anyone techy help me out? I can't log onto ticket master for some reason. They say I'm a robot?
    Looking for the discounted tickets anounced last week for the upcoming nfl preseason game in Winnipeg. I can't seem to find a link anywhere (ticket exchange/stubhub,etc) and hope some kind pinsider can help me out.
    Thanks

    Sounds like that NFL game in Winnipeg was a complete flop! Why would anybody pay $400 for a preseason game ticket which included NO big name players, & a shortened & dangerous field! Stands looked half empty! You can drive down to Minnesota and see a real game for that much money! Sure glad the Rider's weren't able to host that shit show debauchery!

    Hey quick question. Is luckys lounge still open? It's not on the pin map anymore. Also any locations in St Albert to play?

    I haven't played any pinball since yegpin and will be in the area next week. Thanks

    #2696 1 year ago

    Thanks man. Didn't show up on pin map when I entered Edmonton. Does now. Weird. How's the new JP? Looking forward to throwing a few bucks in it.

    Anyone know if any pubs in St Albert have pins?

    #2697 1 year ago

    2 new arcade bars just opened in Yeg this past weekend. Greta on 101av / 109 st and Midway on 61av / 104 st.
    Haven’t been to either yet, but I’m sure the pin map will be updated soon.

    Thanks pinhi. I just checked out Greta's website. Very impressive lineup of arcade games and great prices. $3 beer daily? Right on. And pricing of games is extremely reasonable. $20 gets you 120 credits. Looks like they have a Deadpool, Maiden, Star Trek and gotg for pins.

    #2699 1 year ago

    My parents drove through Edmonton on their way back from the west cost to Ottawa and stayed at the Ramada with Lucky's Lounge attached.

    My dad sent me pics of the pins. Nice line up in there.
