Thinking about a Twilight Zone (big fan of the series) but seems like this game is a tough one to find. Here in Loveland, wanting to add to the cave. Should have looked for it when I lived in Chicago...

Any of you northern Colorado guys happen to be in Loveland, stop by and introduce yourself. My business jus happens to have a game room attached, although nothing to do with the business, it's our R&R place to hang out. Plus, a car parlor is part of it.

Directly across from the Ranch, west side of Hwy. 25. It's the tall glass front building with wooden vertical beams, right next door to Champion Windows. Caspers, 5840 Byrd Dr.

Any of you guys who want to add a slot machine to your man cave, I have several available. Priced under 800, original early 80's Bally machines originally from casinos in Las Vegas with reels and handles, and work with coins or tokens. These are the real things, not like those Japanese skill-stop machines...! I also have oak stands available and can fully customize the strips with your favorite hobby. Completely revamped and warranteed.
Here's what the machines look like:slot001.jpg

All of the newer technology is server-based. The machine itself is basically a dumb terminal and without the casino server, it's useless. And, the current day machines pretty much eliminate the handle, and coin operation. No fun far as I'm concerned.

Most states have a legal cutoff point; in Colorado, it's illegal to one a slot machine newer than 1984. How they came up with that number is anyone's guess. Some states prohibit any and all slot machine personal ownership, and others, like AZ and NV have no age limit. Nebraska prohibits personal ownership of slots altogether including antiques!

These slots are CO-legal. Dying breed, with coins in and coins out.

I moved to northern CO from Chicago a year ago. OK, OK, the ground is covered with snow right now, but it doesn't last, and the dry climate eats up any moisture that might be laying around.

Things I miss about Chicago:

The food.
the endless supply of coin op machines.

That's it. CO offers so many more plusses, there's no comparison. Taxes here are 1/6th of what I had back there. Never turn back.

FWIW, I'm making a road trip to the Chicago area first week of June to pick up a few machines, and have some room in my truck. Going there, I have a full load (bringing a car) but coming back, somewhere around June 8.

Just putting it out there.

Fellow pinsiders:

I am heading to the Chicago area with a 20ft. empty truck on Oct. 2. If anyone needs to have anything large transported there, let me know since the truck is empty. I will have it filled when I return, so no room for anything coming back to CO.

Just putting it out there.

#979 4 years ago

I wish. Truck full of car. And some Chicago pizzas and italian beef. Lots of that.

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.

I would suggest you bring your pins from Chicago. They're far more plentiful in the Chicago area compared to up here in CO. I moved from Lake County two years ago, brought all my machines, and sooooo glad I did. Moved to the Ft. Collins area, north of Denver.

Bring them with you, no matter how much hassle it is. You won't regret it.

^^Bump for a rare, beautiful machine. I have a similar, Bally ball bowler with the smaller 3 in. balls, and love it.

If you have the space, Mr68's machine will be the hit of your game room.

Quoted from Russell:

I'm interested in finding a TSPP in excellent condition Anyone looking to sell? Trade?

You don't happen to have an Indiana Jones to trade, do you?

I have a 1948 United "Wisconsin" EM machine considering selling. It is very unique; called a "roll-over" machine that has no shooter, but rather a lever that delivers the ball to the outside of the machine, where you pick it up and roll it across the playfield glass. It then drops off at the end, and into the playfield.

Definitely an oddball machine. I'll let it go cheap.

Looking to sell a Simpsons Pinball Party, and I have a guy interested in PA - but I have to ship it. Anyone have any suggestions on the best way to do it? I'd have to palletize it and can just imagine what could happen in transit.

Quoted from Elicash:

Anyone know where I can play a Ghostbusters Premium on location? Seems there are tons of the Pros. But I haven't run across a premium yet. I wanna put a little time on one to see if I may want to buy. Thanks

I have one in my game room. Where are you located? I'm in Windsor/Loveland if you want to give it a try.

For what it's worth, I'm here in Loveland, have a fully equipped tech lab, and years ago built and sold a business repairing electric forklift control PC boards. Also I have designed and built many electronic circuits and products over the years.

While I have not concentrated specifically on pinball boards, I have repaired several in the past. As far as I am involved, a PC board is a PC board, really doesn't matter too much what it was designed for, and bad components can usually be found and replaced quickly if you know what to look for.

Unless there is physical damage on the circuit board, there is usually a common problem with them, and generally the high heat or large components are suspect.

Anyway, if you have a board that needs to be looked at, feel free to reach out to me and I'll take a look. I do know my way around them and would enjoy helping fellow pinheads here in NOCO.

What trade do you have in mind?

#3545 9 months ago

Well, I'd trade my Shadow for an Indiana Jones. I bought the Shadow new, and at the time, it was a coin-toss between IJ and TS.

I have one from Theatre of Magic, and another from The Shadow, both flawless. And also a NOS one from the 90's that's never been installed.

Anyone here into arcades? I have a ton of parts, trackballs, joysticks, connectors, etc. Loaded up on these years ago when I was heavily into the JAMMA arcade machines. LMK.
