Quoted from Wickerman2:

Is there anywhere around Denver that has a Theatre of Magic on location?

Pinball Jones in fort collins does. It was off yesterday but i talked to them and they think they know the problem and they were going to work on it today. It plays pretty good, got the top score when they put it in ,i think its number 2 now tho

#798 4 years ago

okay, looks like now the trough 4 switch isnt firing, it was previously. might be the culprit.
its looks like it is WHT/YEL but nothing else on that row or column is out. Diode tests fine on DMM and the switches after it work

#800 4 years ago

oh my bad, yeah I had the wrong thread open, been working on the game. Sorry guys

#804 4 years ago

i emailed the seller in the morning and he said he already had a buyer lined up with more in line

#812 4 years ago

congrats, did you get it lower than the asking price?

#855 4 years ago

Got a good buddy in Nebraska with money burning a whole in his pocket looking for a nice Whirlwind. If anyone has one or knows someone with one for sale, I could link you up with the buyer. I could pick it up for him or he'd make a trip if need be.

#859 4 years ago

If anyone is looking for any arcade games, im thinking about thinning the herd. pm for a list of what i have fs/ft if interested

#863 4 years ago

Nope sorry. I know a guy in Cheyenne that has one, but he told me its his fav so I dunno if he'd sell

#867 4 years ago

what about the guy in littleton who has 9 games for sale for awhile now with pictures time stamped from 2010 lol

#870 4 years ago

well one is time stamped 2013, but you are probably right as it is 1/1/2013. i think its mirage games tho cause they have those same titles for the same price for sale on their facebook page

#873 4 years ago

Yeah not sure what his business model is but he probably isn't selling to very many people already in the hobby. Has anyone tried to haggle prices with them or is he firm on them?

Quoted from bemmett:

I know someone in Windsor but probably not too ideal for you down there.

hey, can you pm me with their info? Looking to get some work done on a pin soon. I found a few places around fort collins, not sure if this is one of em.

#942 4 years ago
Quoted from Wickerman2:

Looks like the fake PinBot is up on CL again....weird

why do you think its fake? It looks like the one at Flipper McGill's or whatever in Idaho Springs. The location is Idaho Springs and the pics have it next to a change machine, which last time I was there was the location of their pinbot. Def a beater pin tho, not worth the asking price

#946 4 years ago

Oh yeah the one I saw was the one in Idaho springs my bad

#956 4 years ago
Quoted from jalpert:

I bought that robocop. It looked really nice. I'll get it next week. If I'm not happy with it he said he'd refund me so no risk.
I'm in the mood to shop a game, not sure I'm gunna play it much, I feel like working on
Pins more then playing recently.

wow, doesnt seem like wolfman, i tried to negotiate a price with him once and he hung up on me lol.

#982 4 years ago
Quoted from jalpert:

He doesn't have the game yet, I paid in full but it was more of a deposit. His terms, not mine

I see the robocop still posted, did you end up passing on it?

InfiniteLives... If I beat you in a tournament you have to sell me Super Off Road.

haha, then what do i get if i beat you?

#1104 3 years ago

Haha Super Off Road seems to be my ace in the hole

Anyone have an Elvira and the Party Monsters or a Whirlwind for sale/trade?

#1116 3 years ago

if anyone wants to buy that Elvira and the Party Monsters on CL and trade it for my Bride of Pinbot that'd be cool

#1128 3 years ago
Quoted from mesmashu:

I know, just had to give you guys shit. I used to go to every Pokes home game and some away games during the Joe Glenn era so I'm somewhat of a Wyoming Cowboy fan. You guys should have kept him and his staff. They got a raw deal considering they were going up against TCU, Utah and BYU. The Mountain West is so much easier now.

I went to UW Joe Glenn's first year. "Powder River, Let `er Buck!"

Anyone have a rollergames for sale or trade?

#1172 3 years ago

#1174 3 years ago

This guy had some model of TWD listed a while back.

i think thats mirage games listings

#1272 3 years ago
Quoted from Wickerman2:

Doesn't look like his ad--unless they closed and he stuffed them all in a house. Have any of you inquired?

they are the same games and prices as he lists on his facebook page:


i think he changed the way he posts cause someone kept flagging his ads when he would post them over and over every day

#1275 3 years ago
Quoted from Bwheels:

He has my old pro. It's in good shape. All his stuff is in his house and in unshopped condition. Prices are pretty high

so his shop is closed down now? maybe he would figure out selling games unshopped at high prices isn't the best strategy

Nice, not sure if i've ever meet either of you guys in real life, are you going to JJ's get together friday night?

#1352 3 years ago

Friday at 7pm at Wild Pitch, which apparently is very close to TPF

#1354 3 years ago

Anyone have a routed ST Pro on the block?

#1371 3 years ago

there is an ac/dc pro at chippers lanes in fort collins. the South location. pretty good shape.

Quoted from mesmashu:

Lots of places, but everything is an hour away from me.
My son has a lot of baseball games coming up and at least one in Longmont. Will have to check out Lyons Pinball Classic. If I ever get to Boulder I'll hit you up and buy you a beer or two or three.

#1424 3 years ago
Quoted from WesleyCowan:

Did someone here buy the LOTR VE in Co. Springs for 5K Man I wanted the game and to put it next to The Hobbit some day! But right now redoing the downstairs and pin area for various reasons. Including mother-in-law is coming in a couple of weeks to watch the kids as wife and I go on a trip to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. So not the right time to be buying a pin--darn!

There is not a VE of LOTR, maybe another april fools prank? I did not see the ad so I dunno

#1430 3 years ago

Are than any places to play pin in loveland? Any hidden gems? I've played the games at the bowling alley and the laundromat. Been trying to find all the location games in the area up north and give em a whirl and some coin drop

#1433 3 years ago
Quoted from ramegoom:

Severe lack of public game places in northern Colorado. I haven't been able to find anything in Loveland.
If there is ever an organized group of local enthusiasts in the area who make the rounds, put me in for one of the stops in Windsor, with my home game room build.


Nice setup!

Quoted from bemmett:

Not many I know of out that way. You need to just come rock it at my place, I think I'll top most locations.

Yeah I would love to jam on your games!

I would just like to support any coin op ones hangin around the area too!

#1435 3 years ago
Quoted from ghostbc:

If you drive 15-20 min further south I have No Fear, Junkyard , Fam Guy, and Roller Coaster Tycoon in Longmont at Tasty Weasel Oskar Blues tasting room at Brewery . 10 more min to Lyons Classic Pinball, just got Hobbit plus 40 or so others.

Yeah, I go to lyons quit often! And I'm the cpt of the Fort Collins traveling team and we play Lyons the last week of the season. Thanks for having all the great games available, bring back TX-Sector tho

#1437 3 years ago

Just a heads up, Pinball Jones in Fort Collins will be holding a Ghostbusters Launch Party on Sunday, May 1st starting at 4pm.

Facebook event info here:

Event states that from 4 to 6 pm is one qualifying game on Ghostbusters for seating followed by a double elimination tournament. Championship game on Ghostbusters. Also, a secondary tournament on Ghostbusters for Highscore of the night wins a cash prize as well. This is on the IFPA schedule and will be worth WPPR points. Payout to 1st, 2nd, 3rd in the Tournament. $5 entry fee. all entry fees goes to the prize pool

Come up to the Fort and play some Ghostbusters!

#1440 3 years ago

Anyone have a Bally Frontier or Bally Viking for sale or trade? Gotta get that TX from Whysnow

#1461 3 years ago

Yeah the only thing the ifpa calendar lacks is the league info but the monthy tournaments and other bigger events are usually always listed and correct whenever I check it

#1470 3 years ago

Ghostbusters is at Press Play in Boulder and it is awesome. Played about 20 games last night.

#1473 3 years ago

#1475 3 years ago
Quoted from Jgaltr56:

Should be there Monday according to Kim.

Kim emailed today and thought Wednesday

#1477 3 years ago
Quoted from jar155:

I've been looking for a Dr. Who. Not much listed on Pinside or around the area in classifieds. Thought I'd reach out to you guys to see if you knew of any leads.

Paradise Pinball has one on location at the Chipper Lanes North location in Fort Collins. You could call Bob and see if he'd sell

#1485 3 years ago

Ghostbusters is now up and running at Pinball Jones!
Launch party this Sunday starting at 4, but qualifying runs till 6.

#1506 3 years ago

Getting pretty close to pulling the trigger on a GB Pro but if I can find a decent priced routed/used Star Trek Pro i'd probably pick it up instead.

Soooo, anyone have a ST pro they are looking to move?

#1540 3 years ago
Quoted from Wickerman2:

I asked about a couple,1 was "gone", the other he said he could get pictures but "i not bring anything back to denver except items for my own collection"...so, not sure what that means

my fav part of the ad is: "I buy and sell Games and never plug anything in Since 1974. "

#1547 3 years ago
Quoted from Leeb18509:

I'll be picking it up at the show in a month. Thanks Drew!

Yeah no power at his storage units, sold as is. He has some wiggle room on price but not enough for me to take the plunge. When he got all those EMs in I checked em out but he wanted fully working prices for untested games.

I would venture to guess it will get played 2 or 3 nights outta the week on average after the newness dies down. They have a room with a pool table and what not in it that it would go in.

Quoted from jar155:

I would be willing to bring my Ghostbusters LE out to Denver for Showdown if someone wanted to buy. I'm not motivated to sell, but would if there's genuine interest. Love the game, but am about to shake up my collection. Others available soon, most likely.

I know a guy who is looking for a BOP if that is one you're looking to shakeup, he might be interested depending on condition/price of course

#2183 2 years ago
Quoted from jar155:

GB sold.
My BoP is pretty nice. Doesn't have a new playfield, but those are available now. That would make it perfect. Cabinet is extremely nice. That's one of the few machines I would need to run by the wife though...might be hard to get that one from me. I'll think about it.

Congrats on the sale!

#2272 2 years ago
Quoted from Mr68:

Last Friday evening I brought home the Bone Busters on Craigslist (Loveland) and have been shopping it out since. The seller continues to let the ad run for some reason, along with his ad selling a Jokerz. If you're interested in the Jokerz read on.
The seller is not a Pinhead and the Bone Busters is a Basement Find. A dirty, dusty, diamond in the ruff that has sat un-played for many, many years. It's not perfect but I couldn't be happier or more surprised as I tear it down and shop it out.
I did a very superficial look at the Jokerz and cannot comment on its condition other than it powers up. The GI was mostly out and I was there for the Bone Busters. But if the Jokerz has a similar history, which I suspect it might, it could be worth while to check out.
Seller is negotiable on price but haggle savvy.

dang i really wanted that bonebusters but couldnt get a response from the seller. congrats!

Quoted from Wickerman2:

JOB OPPORTUNITY!!!! ***Back breaking labor involved***
Moving a few blocks from my current location in Denver Metro around mid-October--a little over a month from now.
Looking to pay a couple people to move 10 pinball machines and a couple arcade games. My goal is to avoid lifting any of them. I am moving the rest of the contents of the house on my own so don't call me lazy
Job: I'll have all the games essentially prepped and ready to move. 1 set of 10(?) straight stairs up and out, 1 set of straight stairs down at new place. I have an appliance dolly. Haul the games out in to the as yet un-rented moving vehicle. Take them the 3 blocks to the new place. Haul them down to basement and help set them up. Cash, drinks, pizza, free pinball, all the above.
Exact date is flexible, weekend or weekday, whatever works.
***So, if you know anybody that needs some extra cash and is physically fit enough not to blow out their back, PM me. I'm not going to be a cheapskate on the cash either.***

That bone Buster's you picked up a few months back on the chopping block?

#2523 2 years ago
Quoted from Mr68:

I just played it during lunch today.
Sorry, not for sale. That simple and silly little game has me totally addicted and it's hard for me to fully explain why. I slid the PDI glass from my BBB into it and wow did that make the playfield pop.
I don't think you and I have met, have we? Either way, stop down some time and take a spin on it with me. Others are welcome also.
I may have a couple of sheets of PDI glass for sale as not every one buying my games are taking it with. If there's interest I'll do a quick inventory.

We briefly meet two years ago at Dory Hill, you showed up on Sunday towards the end I believe. Im Dave Andersen up in fort Collins.

I dig bone Buster's as well, was a day late on the one you snagged , whoops

Awesome info guys, going to head up there Thursday evening! Thanks again.

Quoted from WackyBrakke:

It would be fun to join a league, but I don't know anything about them and how to find one that's best for me, etc......

ryanwanger has a fun, less competitive league in Boulder, bwheels plays in none ifpa league in Denver he could probably tell you about. I'm gonna start up another beginner's league in fort Collins soon. You can find ifpa sanctioned leagues on ifpapinball.com atleast 30 days before they start.

snowgalvin runs a Colorado pinball website that will have most events listed.

#2666 1 year ago
Quoted from Kevkat:

We also host a weekly league here at Blizzard Mountain Pinball in Conifer, Colorado. We're in the middle of a season now, but you could join the next season which starts in March. Our leagues to award IFPA WPPR points. Most of the players are relatively new to pinball, and it's more of a social than a competitive environment.

Yeah, I was telling him about the non-ifpa ones all the current IFPA leagues are in the middle of the season at the moment.
Lots of great options for pinball, YAY!

#2671 1 year ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

I would love to hear what the begginers league is and how you run it...
I am looking for fresh ideas to bring in and keep new people playing for fun

Basically, no points/no buy in fees

last time Pinball Jones gave people $1 off their drinks on league night if they were in the beginners league.

Each week I teach 2 games. Go over basic ball control skills, "you dont always have to flip", etc and then how to achieve entry level goals on games. Like how to start modes or multiballs that kind of stuff. I put both games on free play for the night. Let them all jam out for a few hours on the games. Go into any extra in depth stuff if anyone asks on a more 1on1 level. No crazy in depth overload type stuff, like Nero stacking on Star Trek lol but more than just what the place card says. Go over thought process on when to shoot what, back handing being safer, etc.

The following week after I teach 2 different games I give them an option to play in a high score tournament on the previous weeks two games, allowing them a whole week to practice if they desire. two entries per person if they want to play they put $1 in. Winner takes all. If they dont want to play they dont have to.

Can miss any week (s), you just miss out on the lesson. I let them pick the games, majority rules after week 1.

Last time at the end of the season I had them all come over to my house for a bbq with pinball and drinking

#2673 1 year ago

Quoted from hudson2212:

I hate to hijack the FS thread, but I was wondering if somebody could give me a quick rundown on how the league works at Pinball Jones? I have never tried anything like that so I was wondering is it team based, or individual? Is there some kind of early ranking to line up players, or is it random draw? Does anybody know what the cost is, and maybe how many people are in before the sign-up is cut off?
Thanks in advance for any answers.

Not sure when the next one starts but it's pretty casual

Play 3 games a night twice

At the end of the season there is a double elimination tournament head to head best 2 out of 3

Kim at pbj runs it , she's there most days if you wanna chat with her about it

#2699 1 year ago
Quoted from hudson2212:

Thanks, I will have to try and make my way over there soon.
Website says the next league starts 2/8

I went down there last night and the board said Feb 7th lol so yeah its coming up one way or the other. They are not doing IFPA events this year as far as I know so it wont be for WPPR points

the 7th makes more sense than the 8th as historically they have held the league on wed nights

Quoted from mcbPalisade:

RE: Remakes vs. Original pins. The new Williams reproductions are 10X the machines as the originals, IMHO. Better at everything. But then I know there are reasons to own the original just like there are reasons to own Bell Labs dial phones. Collectors items.

10x is an impossible number lol, just pumping up a game he bought is all.

is it 10x better that you cannot change out the insert bulbs cause they are surface mounted pcbs? or all the folks who got the fucked up inserts 10x happier than if they had a nice original?

Not saying its a bad product or game, im sure you love yours, just saying that 10x is ignorant pandering.

Words mean something damnit! You cannot say "10x the machine as the originals" followed by IMHO, "in my HUMBLE opinion" then follow that up by saying "Better at everything". Just a ridiculous statement.

Quoted from smoothbore19:

I'm new to the Hobby picked up my first pin Demo Man last Sept. I am pretty sure it has been a HUO. I got it from the second owner, and he got it from original owner. So he told me. My second was a World Poker Tour I that picked up for a 150 bucks. The machine needed a deep clean, but after it is in great shape. Picked up a T2 that was a good shape overall. It has been the machine that needed the most work. I have a new Rottendog Driver board in, just need to put it in, and rewire J115, but the machine is fully functional. I was a firearms collector but have moved on to pinball machines.

Welcome, congrats on that steal of a World Poker Tour!

Quoted from Mathazar:

I'm so tired of scammers. Besides pinball, I'm into MAME and have long wanted to build a dedicated MAME upright cabinet. Been looking for weeks for an example with good bones...has to be local as paying $$ for shipping a less-than-stellar cabinet knocks the overall costs too much out of whack for me. Earlier this week, a guy posted on Denver Craigslist a bunch (more than a dozen) video games in one post and among them there was a busted Ulticade in a decent/restorable looking cabinet. $200. I called the guy within 2hrs of the posting and he said it was sold (didn't surprise me much at that price). Three days later that Craigslist ad was updated with the same Ulticade for $300. Today that same ad was updated with the same Ulticade for $500.
All of the video games are pictured packed into a trailer. Who knows...maybe they were stolen and the guy is starting to realize that they're worth more than $200.

Hey guys, I’m looking for a project or players pin to hone my fixing skills over the winter. I am a DMD guy and not interested in paying inflated Craigslist prices. I would prefer something like Whitewater, STTNG, Sopranos, Adams Family, Simpson’s PP, Indy, WPT, or really about anything. I am in Castle Rock during the weekends, and in New Castle (Glenwood Springs) during the week days, so I can cover all of the Front Range and Western Slope depending on where you are. I’ll pay the PinSide fee for a sale no problem. Thank you, Dave.

you'll probably find that most people would love to pick up those titles at a lower price and fix them up themselves, might be tough to get some of those "A" titles at a cheaper price.

You may want to broaden your search to some solid state games or less sought after titles. Fix em, play em then sell em if you dont like it too much. just my 2 cents

Quoted from ryanwanger:

In the last year or so, I've probably had four or five people ask me to help them "buy a game".
It's always first time buyers, and I can see how they might want a helping hand since most perceive Craigslist or a distant seller on Ebay to be their only option.
I've got enough going on maintaining my own games and moving them around that I don't want to start doing something like that on the side. But at the same time, it would be great to be able to help these people!
I think it would involve figuring out a machine or range of machines they are interested in, finding the machine, and doing delivery/setup. Maybe in some ways, it would be like being a realtor for people buying pinball machines. Is there anyone out there who would want to provide this as a service? I think you could make a little bit of money on the side doing this for newbies and charging by the hour.

i think these people are always going to be needy and bug you for help. they need to man up and figure it out. do their own research, reach out for help (either here, or to someone they know in the hobby like you) but not rely on others to do everything for them. this is why i passed haha

owning a pin is not for the faint of heart. if you really want to be in this hobby they will need to start learning the ins and outs and how to fix at least basic things, etc. if they cant even find a machine and set it up themselves its gonna be a long road.

sounds harsh typing it out but thats my take. i feel like charging a newbie by the hour and nickle and diming them isnt a good look for the hobby and would feel sh*5ty doing it to anyone, especially people i know. if it was someone i knew i would 100% help them for free and get them going as long as they knew im not their free tech and they are going to have to have the desire to learn how to maintain these bad boys

either buy new and get the white glove service and have less worries or learn how to get a game and fix em up yourself if you buy an older used game.
