    Quoted from dirkdiggler:

    If anyone likes cheap beer, superstore has $8 cases on this long weekend
    [quoted image]

    Too much of a beer snob. Craft all the way. But if you dig it, 40 cases is the way to go!!!

    The first Avengers is such a horrible game, even tweaked and fixed. Ughh... If I go to hell, there will be Avengers in the corner on free play.

    Quoted from Soulstoner:

    I’d like to make a trip up to Century Casino to play some pins once this second wave subsides.
    What’s the fee for playing? Standard loonie/toonie per game or is there a day pass or anything like that?
    I’ve got no options to try different pins here in Lethbridge so I’m willing to make the drive for a day trip.

    Doran usually has a at least two or three machines set up in McLennan's in Coaldale. He had IMDN pro and fishtales set up last time I was out there, but that was quite a while ago. He has probably about 50 games that he routes all over Southern Alberta. We tried a league in Lethbridge (Doran's games at Av. Joe's), but we couldn't get more than 10 dedicated players, and that number fluctuated quite a bit.

    I sometimes have pinball nights at my place. Beer tourneys that are just for fun. If you're not a mutant (we seem to have a significant increase in mutants in Lethbridge these days), I can put you on the list. Once Covid goes away, I'll go back to hosting big tourney nights that are anywhere from 20-35 ppl and from all skill levels. I have a tournament style that lets less skilled players decide who wins. I've posted the format here:

    Yeah, most of the routed games in town are in rough shape unless new. It's a bummer.

    Quoted from dirkdiggler:

    Too bad you couldn't get a ce. Sounds like your a huge gnr fan.
    I've watched a couple vids of gameplay and it seems you'r always in multiball. The one thing I miss with newer games is the grind/sense of achievement to earn a multiball.

    Yeah, that's my biggest issue. I love a good multiball, but it must be earned. I prefer the 90s style, where you might not even get mb. Still need to play gnr though.
