    The newest little Pinball player is quite handsome. He was so cute I didn't want to put him down.

    Great to see everyone. Here is the other side of the trade. It's in amazing condition and seems quite happy next to the Bar.

    Some congrats and big thanks to send out to:
    * TigerLaw and Pavball for hosting the IFPA Louisiana State Pinball Championship in Lake Charles, LA on Sat Feb 11, 2017.
    TigerLaw has assembled a great collection of pinball machines that are a lot of fun to play.
    * Jodester, Wendell, (and me) for helping to get games ready for the tournament
    * JAHpinWizard for helping out at the tournament with handling/collecting entry fees, tracking tournament bracket player progress, etc.
    * Arcade for taking some pics and helping out with resolving issues during tournament

    I had a blast.
    Here's a pic with TigerLaw, 1st place winner Preston M., and 2nd place finisher Dale B.

    Yep, you guys are awesome. Other than Medusa everything played amazing and held up well all day.

    #1020 1 year ago

    Congratulations Preston. Good times for all.

    #1021 1 year ago

    Anyone have more pics from yesterday? I didn't take too many apparently.

    #1022 1 year ago

    We enjoyed having everyone over. I wanted to give a special thanks to Jody and Mike for all their effort to make sure the machines performed at high levels.

    I hope to play well enough in 2017 to make the tournament cut next year.

    So much for not buying any more games this year. And I guess so much for not buying any more EM's. These were some what of have to buys my wife found these over 5 years ago and tried to get them for me as a birthday gift. Well that didn't happen but the family remembered us when it was time to let them go so I got them today only took like 6+ years to make the deal. They need a good cleaning so that will be happening soon.

    Great photos.
    Let's see more as you get them cleaned up and running.

    #1031 1 year ago

    I'm not sure. I'm thinking about selling Full Throttle to try something new. Alien does look great. My current money is going to Keith Holbrook to restore my 81 Eight Ball Deluxe. Dropping it off next weekend!

    Quoted from Nevus:

    That's great! I think he will start on my Quicksilver sometime in the next couple of weeks.

    Your MM is playing great right now by the way. All the switches work perfectly. Really nice game.

    My Arcade here in Beaumont, Colorado Canyon is going to sell two pinballs.
    Below is my post from the Gulf Coast Pinball Facebook page. Wanted to offer them locally first before posting a for sale here on Pinside.
    Here is a cut and past with the photos.

    Two Pinballs for sale. These are location games and are being sold and priced as such. These are not games from our personal collection, but are on location at our arcade. They are however very well kept and clean. We are selling these to bring in other games, they both work great. Star Trek Pro $4300. Full Throttle $5995. The Ghostbusters is not for sale. Posting locally here first. Star Trek has no issues. Full Throttle has the lower monitor out but a new one is on the way from Heighway pinball. Cointaker has promised us the new owner will get the monitor as soon as it arrives from over seas. Here are the photos. Message me if interested or call Colorado Canyon here in Beaumont.

    Hey TigerLaw and Pavball,

    Just received my prize for winning the Romp in the Swamp Project Pinball Charity Fundraiser Pinball Tournament last August.
    I'll get it framed up with glass front and back, so that it can be lit up from the backside.
    Should go well with my other 3 framed up translites (GnR, Metallica, & Wipe Out).

    Hey, just getting into this but I travel to Beaumont frequently. I go out to orange and interested in watching some quality players to see if I can pick anything up. Just bought a WoZ and it's awesome. Never been in a tournament and would like to see some serious play. I move a lot, keep me updated....

    Awesome. Welcome to the group.
    Whenever you are in Beaumont just let me know with a PM here on Pinside.
    We love to have people over to play and talk Pinball.
    Leon.

    I got "the bug" bug time on pinball after my 11 year old sone drug me to an arcade in Houston. I've been playing my machine every night since I bought it. There have to be some "tricks of the trade" I can pick up on. Bought one, now wanting more. Doctor told me I shouldn't be riding dirt bikes anymore, time for a new hobby?

    If you haven't already take your son to the game preserve and the Lone Star pinball museum in Hockley you can Google both. For the Pinball museum you will have to coordinate your tour with the owner he loves to talk pinball and will turn on the games so you can play.

    Welcome to Pinside and pinball. Hope you can make it to some of our Gulf Coast area events. Try to hit up TPF next month in Dallas, great show.

    Welcome! We have nice group from a large area (especiall if you count us Yankees up here in Shreveport) that likes to get together. Looking forward to meeting you.

    #1042 1 year ago

    Actually my last move was from Bossier city. We move a lot with my job, about every three years. We're actually on our 8th move. I never know how long I'm going to be in any one place. Shortest time was 11 months in San Francisco, longest was in Michigan 7 years.

    WOZ was an excellent selection for a first machine. WOZ pairs best with a fast modern Stern with good flow like Metallica or Star Trek.

    We just installed our new inserts over the rollover lanes yesterday. The game plays so much better when the ball is not swooping all over the place with the old cupped inserts.

    What game is that? Looks great. More pics?

    Joker poker?

    #1047 1 year ago

    It is Jacks Open. A Gottlieb wedge head. And it is a blast to play.
    Here are more pics.

    Did he mention anything about the Quick Silver by chance? Just curious, I know it's getting close to its time to be started.

    #1050 1 year ago

    No. I mentioned it to him, but he didn't mention dates.
