that is OK, I put them on my auto flagger as quick as I see them.

Always the same ads for the same 3 guys. Just get tired of them always clogging up the feed and spamming every clist to take games that are not in your area.

#5204 1 year ago

Well I know I cannot get them all and I understand you like to keep it local. No problem there. Both our basements can not support every game . All part of the hunt....

Quoted from rosh:

I'll be hosting a Houdini play testing event here at the American Pinball offices in Streamwood this Saturday from 11:00 AM until 7:00 PM (or maybe later if folks still want to play). If you are interested please send me a PM with an approximate time you want to stop by, just want to be sure we don't have too many folks here at one time. I'm not that concerned about it, since we should have three games set up for play, but opening it up here on pinside, one never knows.

Rosh, you’re killing me! I’m dying to play Houdini and have been waiting for something like this but I have plans on Saturday that I don’t think I can get out of. Will you be doing this again?

Quoted from Chitownpinball:

I CANNOT get arcade adventures to reply to me. Text, email, voicemail, nothing. They dont want my money? Ive heard good things, but damned if I cant get them to reply. Any tips?

Without going into any details
A delayed response from Jeff is completely understandable
He has more important priorities at the moment

Not sure how to read that. Does Jeff have a real situation he is dealing with or is it another one of his boo hoo stories?

Not sure because I just saw him the other day driving around with an Atari Super Breakout in the back of his truck.

I second that.

We were all pleasantly surprised at the gameplay, sounds, shot selection, variety of modes and video integration. Rosh and team have their sh*t together. Star Wars looks like Tatooine compared to Houdini. Stern better be careful, the new guys have a very strong & loaded alternative product.

I call dibs on the first used one in Chicago up for sale.

#5225 1 year ago
Quoted from badbilly27:

Stern has a lot of good competing companies fighting for that pinball pie. We saw Stern step it up a little bit when JJP was formed, and it seems like that scale has slowly been sliding back again over the years. I don't care what license they obtain, if games feel sparse and re-hashed from previous layouts (star wars is iron man ramps with star trek center drop target lock), you can only do that for so long before people start shopping elsewhere.

I posted pictures tonight on my facebook page of about 20 or so pins that i now have available, and possibly will be delivering some to the Chicago area for a reasonable fee

I just posted an ad for my HUO Spiderman. I purchased it NIB from Trent at Tilt Amusements and it hasn’t moved from my game room since he installed it. It has a shaker motor, the Back Alley Creations buildings and subway car, and includes the goodie bag unopened and still attached to the cabinet. Cabinet and playfield are in excellent condition with minor wear at the Doc Ock magnet. I will consider a trade for a players condition Corvette plus cash. PM me if you're interested.

Sorry, but I had to remove the link. It may not be as convenient, but you are required to create an individual ad in the Market for each game over $3k.

vidgameseller thanks for thinking of the Chicago for sale thread on your recent Facebook post.

badbilly27 Thanks for the kind words. As i said in my original post, I wasn't sure if it was allowed, so i even apologized in advance. So that the link was removed is no big deal. Not sure if there is another way to put the list on here since several are over the 3k mark that requires separate ads, if there is, someone tell me without spending hours making 30 or so different ads

For the ones that are under $3k, just list them all here. You can't post pictures or a link to pictures, but if people see a title they are interested in, they will reach out to you.

Just make things easy Troy and reduce the price to all under $3000, why make things more difficult? GLWS!

#5241 1 year ago

I have about 30 sets of new stern pro side rails, not lollipop rails. Free for the taking. I think they fit some Data East games also I have been slowly giving them out. Anyone needs them let me know, stop by the shop and pick them up. Would really like to get rid of all of them.

#5242 1 year ago

Nice!

Speaking of side rails...does any one know if the lollipop rails from Kiss LE will fit DEJP? We put guitar rails on the LE, and I was wondering what the red rails would look like on my JP....
