    Understood pinball-is-great .

    Yeah, the event info could use an update. It talks about sending invitations, bracketing, etc. Might need to dial that back a bunch.

    Non-IFPA is fine, and AFAIC I just want to get together and play! Tourney or not. We can always make side bets. LOL

    Thanks for all you do! And I can't wait to try some different machines! (oh, and see all of y'all)

    #5052 54 days ago

    I for one, am happy that there is a pinball event that I can attend.
    I plan to have fun and play a lot of pinball.
    If I get to play some other people, that would be great.

    #5053 54 days ago

    After making some phone calls, it looks like we will have about 16 to 20 attend the pinball gathering in Shreveport on Sat Jan 23rd.

    #5054 50 days ago

    Hey friends. Deadpool Pro is going up soon to the market. If anyone here is interested and might like to pick it up at the Jan 23 gathering, please PM or text/call.

    Hey everyone,

    My buddy Kevin has his Star Wars Pro for sale. It is HUO with low plays and he is the original owner. He has also purchased several hundreds in add-ons that would go with it. Such as Lightsaber flipper toppers, airball protector, spinner seals, Deathstar laser, insert gels, lighted Millennium Falcon mod, plastics protectors, playfield monitor bezel and more. He is asking $5000 for it. I can bring it to Chris' on the 23rd if anyone would like to purchase it. Feel free to text or call if interested.
    Stephen 601-906-8983

    Thanks.

    #5056 41 days ago

    Looking forward to attending but avoiding the temptation of all these pins for sale! I'm paying on going back to grad school so my husband is not allowed to be interested. Maybe he can trade a car or two? He's got extras of those!

    #5057 41 days ago

    Hey Pinball friends

    To clarify, the event is on for this weekend.
    Sat Jan 23
    You do not have to be in the tournament to attend.
    Rain is in the forecast, but I do have a covered porch outside the game room.

    Game room opens at 11:00
    Tournament planned to start at 1:00.
    Mike is the TD and he will direct all of the tournament rules, business etc.

    I’ll have a brisket, water, coffee and a few snacks. Please bring you preferred beverage and any snack or dish you wish to share.

    I’m looking forward to seeing my pinball friends.

    #5058 39 days ago

    nevus pinball-is-great and the rest of you great folks... As much as I long to come, I'm chickening out.

    I know folks will hopefully be wearing masks and trying to social distance, but I'm not comfortable enough yet to venture into a large gathering of folks not already in my family circle. It sucks. But with the rise and the new strain, I'm not gonna push my luck.

    Players, consider yourselves lucky I'm not gonna be there. heh heh heh

    Best of luck to all, stay safe, and I wanna see pictures!

    #5059 38 days ago

    Big thank you to all that joined us today and to our TD, Mike.

    My only picture of the day was the fire pit.

    I’ll let the winner post their picture and not spoil the news.

    Oh yeah, outdoor Deadpool is a thing!

    Hey friends, Beatles is having a problem with a flipper, I’ve started a tech thread and would appreciate any advice or help you can offer.

    It’s been a while since we have had an event and I am ready to see everyone again and meet those I haven’t met yet. So, we are planning to have a little get together on Feb. 27th. I will probably run a cash tournament if you would like to enter. Probably a $10 buy in with cash going to the top three. If you’re not feeling like a tournament, you are still welcome to just come play, visit and eat. If you are comfortable coming, we would love to see you but, if not, we understand. We will have plenty of hand sanitizer available. I plan on smoking chicken and will have some chips and dip. Bring your beverage of choice and any side dish or snacks or dessert you would like to share. The game room will be open at 11:00 and I will start the tournament at 12:30pm. We Hope to see you there!

    #5067 26 days ago

    I’m planning to be there. Henry says he may join me, but 3 weeks is a lifetime in the dramatic world of a 13 year old.

    Thanks for hosting!

    #5068 26 days ago

    If I can get a carpool together, we may make it to Mississippi. Let me check around with usual suspects.

    #5070 26 days ago

    Unless something bad happens, I plan to attend.
    I'm not bringing any babies...

    Those green LEDs have an interesting effect on that game. That little alien looks angry!

    Holy cow pinball friends! The used/flip game market has gone crazy in the last few weeks. I love looking at games to buy as much as anyone, but my inner rational person says don’t even think about it for 6 months.

    When GNR arrives (pre-increase order), I’ll open up the game room for some fun if anyone wants to come visit.

    Thank you and I'll probably take you up on that offer. I'm glad you are getting one. I was going to purchase the LE, but I guess I waited too long. Now I just can't bring myself to pull the trigger with the $1000 price hike. So, I guess I'll just have to play yours

    #5075 18 days ago

    I would bet money that if you wait about 6 months to a year, used GNR machines will be back on the market at better prices, while some owners seek to trade up to the next new machine.

    #5076 13 days ago

    Hey Friends. I hung up a another Brad Albright print today. I got it a year ago as a gift and kept procrastinating. I also played a few games.

    What’s new?

    Winter stalked me here from Ohio and it's bullshit. XD

    I'm making paintings for the house and looking at pinball ads. Living my best life. Indoors.

    #5078 13 days ago

    The front CV axels on my wife's 2010 Chevrolet Equinox were making popping sounds, so I am installing new CV axels, rotors, brake pads, lower control arms and hubs. I watched some you tube videos to learn how to do it. It has not been easy, but I am learning. I like learning new things.

    Kvolak,

    Let's review:
    * I believe you moved to western side of LA approx 8 or 9 months ago or so. Then:
    * Get smacked by major hurricane Laura in late Aug
    HurricaneLaura-path-2020 (resized).png
    * Hurricane Delta gets flagged for "piling on" in Oct
    HurricaneDelta-path-2020 (resized).jpg
    * Meanwhile, Covid flared up in 2020 and persists on into today in Feb 2021.

    * Next a snow & ice storm hits TX, LA, and much of the nation.
    snow-ice-storm-LA-Feb2021 (resized).jpg
    Perhaps you and/or poboypinball can post some scenic wintertime pics of how bad the snow/ice got over by you in the Leesville area.

    What is the deal?

    Wondering what year your (& spouse) birthday/birthyears falls on the Chinese calendar? 12 yr cycle. (mine is yr of the Ox)
    http://www.chinesenewyears.info/chinese-new-year-calendar.php

    Or is there something going on with your astrology? What zodiac sign is yours/spouses??

    Just kidding around. Don't need to answer all this.
    Hope to meet y'all and play pinball together sometime in 2021.

    Did you add a new building?

    #5082 12 days ago
    Quoted from Nevus:

    Did you add a new building?

    No still just Da Shed for pinball, Garage for cars and motorcycle and House for people. Not seen are the portable buildings hiding the pinball projects. That’s a lot of buildings but no new ones.

    #5083 12 days ago

    I must have forgotten about the garage.

    #5084 12 days ago

    I have a joke for you all if you want a good laugh.

    Click the market page at the top of the screen....

    Yep that will make you laugh, cry laughing or just cry.

    Yep, the prices have just blasted off into outer space. Just seems like it can’t be sustainable. Hopefully all these people that discovered pinball during lockdowns stay in the hobby.

    Now...anyone want a $7,400 BM66?

    #5086 12 days ago

    pinball-is-great You missed that I moved here mid-April and there were tornado warnings the same night. I am an absolute shit magnet. If you sent me to moon, it would get nuked by aliens within 48 hours tops. Everybody that knows me is well aware and thinks it's hilarious.

    #5087 9 days ago

    Wow I think it’s been almost a year since I bought a game. Last ones I remember buying were about when this hole pandemic started. Well we fixed that today bring this guy home.

    What do you do when there’s no power, water or heat for a week? Load up the family and drive to Wisconsin! Rick and Morty en route to the Tensas Parish dimension...

    #5094 7 days ago

    Family and R&M home safely, but still no power or water. Happy the weather’s looking kinder in the coming days!

    Quoted from action76:

    You sir, I hold partially responsible for this obsession and are welcome in this dimension at any time!
