    I know it's a long shot but a guy from Melfort Sask area had a 1973 williams Travel Time stolen from his cabin and asked if i could ask people to keep an eye out. It worked, looked and played real nice and just trying to help him find it. If anyone from sask hears of one come up, pm me. thanks

    #1059 3 years ago
    Quoted from puck:

    That sucks.
    Did it have a serial number or any distinguishing features? I'll keep an eye out here in Edmonton.

    Ya man..it would suck for sure! ..But the pin has brand new rubber bands and the glass is worn out pretty good on the right side.

    #1061 3 years ago
    Quoted from smokedog:

    Maybe next week? So close now ...

    is this open today?!?! In saskatoon for the weekend & going to play pins today somewhere!! Wooot

    #1063 3 years ago

    Weak line up at sports on tap now.. tron,gladiators,streetfighter2(broken flipper,breakshot..

    #1064 3 years ago

    Its my 1st time here but The 3 playable games are fun... just expected more pins i guess

    #1068 3 years ago
    Quoted from smokedog:

    Tron is no slouch! Gladiators is a blast as well.
    We open Wednesday. Keep it on the down low though. Soft open.
    Soccer centre has great well playing pins. Bartari has Got. Ninos has Kiss and BSD.

    For sure! Tron was kicking my butt but awesome game..gladiator's was a blast too..

    #1080 3 years ago

    A "current line up" of pins on location's in canada sure would be a cool thread to read! Jus' saying!

    Made it to Pokey's Pinball Cafe in Saskatoon yesterday and I could talk on and on about the amazing line up of pins on location!! But, I will mention the food first! So, effin' goood! I had the Cuban burger (to start!) Hand made beef patty, and a fried egg on top! I didn't put it down after I bit into the egg! The sweet potatoe fries were amazing too! Not heavy and greasy..also took home a traditional Cuban sandwich for lunch today! Took a bite of that too and the pork was damn good! Can't wait for lunch! Oh, and Nokomis IPA on tap too! Oh ya, 8 amazing pins ALL playing perfect! Good crowd, good food, goooood times

    #1256 3 years ago

    I drove 1400km yesterday and almost a 1000km's on Sunday just to join a few clubs! (BSD & JM) I think I'm done joining clubs for a while! But yegpin is only a month and a half away...yes, I have a pinball sickness! Hahaha

    If your friends spill drinks & smash the glass out with their fists at your house I think u need new friends! ROUTED typically get played almost every night while HUO most likely gets less plays and more respect. It's like buying a used car.. if it's a one owner vehicle or off a companie's fleet..which one are you going to generally want more? The one used by a bunch of random people who bag the shit out of it or the that you know the history of its use.

    Quoted from Meegis:

    Everything you said, while likely true for routed, is still not making a strong case, as this is all user based

    if everything he says is likely true..then it's making a pretty strong case!

    #1325 3 years ago

    Yes it's a vague term..but my understanding of the term in reference to pinball machines is that MOST LIKELY means it has not been abused in a public environment, and that it TYPICALLY doesn't get played every nite by random people who don't treat it as their own. So taken with a grain of salt & GENERALLY speaking Meegis, would you buy a one owner car or a fleet vehicle?

    #1336 3 years ago

    Two words for that sweet ass line up... Danny faakin Glover! Ok..almost 3 words. Haha

    #1353 3 years ago

    Random question: Would you rather have 2 older pins or 1 new pin?! Say the two older pins were..i dunno, Johnny Mnemonic & Dracula ..and the new pin was Aerosmith pro?! Hmmmm

    #1364 3 years ago
    Quoted from toasterman04:

    The new ones are nice.... but always available.... older ones ; you gotta grab them when they cross your path

    Yup..i love JM and Dracula is still kicking my ass.. It'd have to be a sweet new game..but I think I made the right choice!

    #1402 3 years ago

    I'm just wondering if you guys noticed if the ball saved is turned off on the pins on location in your cities?!? I noticed they are turned of on most nice games in town here and it drives me nuts!

    #1406 3 years ago

    Haha!! I was coming on here to say I know the route owner would see my post! It by NO MEANS was a personal poke! I'm relatively new to playing pins at bars and was wondering if that's just how it is! I could also learn to not suck so much and utilize the ball save option a lil less often!

    #1407 3 years ago

    Your sweet pins still get my loonies Archer600!! Played 3 of them on 2 different locations this weekend! NGG , TaF, TSPP . Wish i owned any/all 3 of those games... they are all fun as faak! Does the ball saved get turned off for tournaments? I noticed on YouTube they turn extra ball off whenever possible for tourneys

    #1425 3 years ago

    Got a notice that these are coming up for sale soon..

    ok ..still haven't heard Tommy's big announcement yet.. so time to speculate! I figured he either stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last nite, or he saved a ton on his insurance by switching to Geico. Of course , this is just speculation!

    Weekend special.. What's your top 5 games?!?! I was just checking the top 100..pretty biased list! Alien is at 32! Haha..dream theme for me but c'mon man!! There's not 32 of them in the wild yet!

    #1677 3 years ago

    My fav's are limited to the few I've played..
    1 metallica
    2 roadshow
    3 medieval madness
    4 white water
    5 dirty Harry

    But I want more time on judge dread soon.& wanna play:
    1 rocky&Bullwinkle
    2 lebowski
    3 Tommy
    4 scared stiff
    5 champs pub

    #1678 3 years ago

    Honourable mentions to fishtales, Johnny mnemonic and BK2K!! I'd be nervous to slap someone's Big bang bar around.. can't afford alien yet, and don't get to play any old EM's around here (although I want one of them too)

    #1681 3 years ago

    I imagine there are kiddy diddlers who worked at car manufacturers, clothing companies, ..probably every line of work there is. How can you boycott a pin that someone only helped make..it takes an entire team..not just one doood.. to each their own but don't know how that's gonna make a difference... I'd be willing to take someone's judge dredd off them if they can't morally live with it in their line-up!

    #1682 3 years ago
    Quoted from northerndude:

    There's been piles on kijiji Sask lately, might be able to get something to try out, might be fun getting one of those 70's EM's

    I been checking them out on there too.. not paying big bucks for one but will grab one when the $$ is right! Can't see it sticking around too long so don't wanna over pay

    #1684 3 years ago

    What did you guys think of Strikes and Spares(bally)? I see u owned one Meegis.There's one in town here for sale. I messaged the gent and hopefully gonna go take a look if he gets back to me..

    #1687 3 years ago
    Quoted from klr650:

    Excellent game. Beware, as covered several posts ago, this seller is still posting pictures of other people's machines and a Future Pinball virtual table. Starting to think this is a scam...

    I thought that was another dunkin donuts cup..dammn

    #1690 3 years ago
    Quoted from aeonblack:

    Well said. I can enjoy my Judge Dredd and not support the piece of shit behind it. Separate the artist from the art. I wish you luck in finding a Judge Dredd...because mine sure ain't moving hah!

    Damn u!! Hahah..u know I want that bad boy!

    #1691 3 years ago

    I'm done shopping for pins off people's collection lists!! Negotiating power goes out the window!

    -1
    #1693 3 years ago

    Yes I do. WTF would me having kids have to do with some creepy old man having child porn on his computer? Terrible logic. I don't refer to them with any class. If they act on those urges they are in fact kiddy diddlers/rapists. Plus, he hasn't been convicted yet. Stay classy pinsider!

    #1695 3 years ago

    I've never heard of the man until this story came out. I want Aeonblack's JD because he pimped it out with custom music and when we talked (8months ago) it sounded like it was in nice condition. Honestly never bought or desired a pin because of one of the designer's name on the card. I don't even read the rules on those cards, never mind random names. This isn't like buying a John Wayne Gacy painting. Old men pinsiders sure like to argue about weird shit!

    #1702 3 years ago
    Quoted from flashinstinct:

    Worst is my twd is up for trade....

    What you hoping to trade it for flashinstinct?! +\- cash ...just wondering what u plan on adding next! (I see you've had some beauties in your collection!)

    #1704 3 years ago

    Shadow and star wars are great choices..have u considered AFMr or Dialed In. Kids would definitely get into that one and I heard if it's set up properly that its a pretty cool game. I played one out of the box and enjoyed it but the theme (compared to Alien!) Just wasn't for me.

    Pro.
    I've definitely got to find an excuse to make a trip to Saskatoon one of these days. I'm sure it won't stay at $2.00 forever.

    pokey's has a tourney on the last Thurs of every month! Aim for that as a target day! I been trying to make it up for one as well! Maybe this month...

    Quoted from smokedog:

    2 dollars a play? Is it a Premium or LE at least?
    Tuesday's at the cafe all games are .50 cents. Otherwise a dollar to play.
    Maybe I should raise prices ...

    Don't raise prices..another way to make more money is to expand!! Pokey's Regina sure has a nice ring to it!!

    #2037 2 years ago

    I love thursdays too! & cake.. my favourite kind is birthday. Mmm! Also, what do you think is a better mod for around $400... pinstadium lites kit w/flashers or powder coating the legs/coindoor/rails/etc. (for a METpro)

    #2054 2 years ago

    All you Ontario boys should each order a n.i.b. stern from Nitro this weekend and "stick it to the man"! (You're welcome in advance if this work's Tommy!)

    #2055 2 years ago
    Quoted from JoshODBrown:

    I got a Pin Stadium kit for my Star Wars with the GI and UV Flasher, but i am thinking i might actually move it over to the Metallica because i feel like it it will benefit from the UV flash in a cooler way. But all in all, I really like Pin Stadium! I feel like I need it on every game now. Quick install too... 10-15 minutes, no tools needed unless you want to hard wire it in to your GI and flashers permanently.

    ya, I'm afraid i'll want a set on every pin as well! They do look deadly and a simple install! A bit pricey tho with the uv/ flasher kits.. Are you guys planning a video review on them?!

    #2064 2 years ago
    Quoted from JoshODBrown:

    Yup, I have an install and review video in the works right now. probably release it in the next week or so, but I can share a little raw gameplay footage. I have the GI color set a little more on the purple/blue side in this video. The nice part is when the UV flasher fires, which you can see a little better after the 1 minute mark when i start into a mode. » YouTube video

    what a difference! I haven't played SW yet but it sure pops compared to MET next to it! Pinstadium has a 15% off code this weekend.. "bfriday" tempted to order a set!

    Super chill and an amazing time. This event is generally just advertised to pinheads so it's very different than other shows.
    Check the thread: https://www.maaca.org/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=25113
    Hawkesbury is halfway between Ottawa and Montreal.
    tournament, flear market, bowling, pinball. Good times.

Staying at a buddies on east side and wouldnt mind getting out for a couple beers/games if I can without straying too far in the evening other than the dang rink that's on the other side of the city

    Big thanks to all the Calgary folks who made it out this weekend for the tournament! Had a blast, as usual.
    Thankfully my dumb ass remembered to record the stream this weekend, so you can check out all the footage here:

    Any arcade guys in here?! Picked up a buckhunter and the monitor is not staying on. Works sometimes then when it flashes to a new screen it just goes black. Its at a friend's and haven't gotten over there yet.. just wondering what to check besides a loose cable connection. Thanks

    #2776 9 months ago

    We headed over to look at it soon! Monitor was apparently replaced 4 years ago and its been sitting since.. i was gonna check the power supply for 5v and make sure everything is connected good. Yes, he said it plays blind.. but when he turns it off and on and video last only a few seconds

    #2777 9 months ago

    I also read to check the header pins on the video signal to the monitor, neck glow, and the blue leads at the connector at the transformer.. gonna check all the molex connectors and make sure there's power going to it..

    #2778 9 months ago

    Well, went over and had a look. Power supply was good. But no neck glow. Coin door light had juice so the 5v seemed to be working.. couldn't figure it out tho. So i put the back cover on,slid it back into the corner, gave the cabinet a slap and called it a bad name! Plugged it in to a different wall socket for shits and giggles..... and it works! For now! Haha.dunno wtf but we also re-seated a pin connector on the plug going to the board under the monitor. headed back there in a few hours.. sure hope it's still working! Ohh & i found 4bucks in the coin box!

    Quoted from northerndude:

    Typical troubleshooting, I troubleshoot for a living basically, the worst part is when you hit a wall, have done the 6 things you did and it come up perfect and you like, WTF, which one did it!??! Ha. Good to hear though

    Yup, we wonder what did to actually fix it.. but i can tell you first hand it held up all night. Head ache confirms ...alll nite!

    Quoted from sixtyfourbits:

    Hey my fellow Canadians,
    I didn’t want to sidetrack the what’s for sale thread, so am posting here. I haven’t ever really followed stern LE prices in Canada, so I was wondering, what stern LEs can be had for $9500 Canadian or less? Here’s the ones I know of, but I know I’m likely missing some:
    Transformers
    X-men
    Original stern avengers
    Black Spider-Man
    Avatar
    AC/DC
    Mustang
    Wwe wrestlemania
    Also inline with this, how much do ghostbusters LEs tend to go for at this time?

    I think u should order an Avengers premium dude! And enjoy the faaaak out of it!
