    I have tons of stuff I'd sell non pin related. I'll send some pics here shortly

    You have the cell #.

    Always have fun hanging out at Zukboy's.

    He's getting pretty good at White Water. He had at least 3 games in the 230 to 318 million points range. (glass on even)

    When The Walking Dead pinball machine first came out, I wasn't a big fan of the machine.
    Now I like it a lot. Always fun to see how many walkers you just killed.
    Here's a pic of Zuk giving walkers a hard time.

    I wonder when Josh sells that car to make room for 12 more pins...

    Thoughts on a Gottlieb Circus project? The good: comes with keys, manual, new leds, and rubbers

    The bad: Game won't start and needs a new 4th player display, has a few flake spots on the back glass

    While I don't know pinball repair just from what I read I'm guessing acid damage $200-$300 repair and Display $300? Game looks pretty good for a 37 year old game, couple of cabinet scuffs but play field looks good? Quite a drive though and I don't think my pin skates will work. I think this is one of those big B@st@rds Dennis told me about.

    We are exactly one month away from Romp in the Swamp III.

    Hard to say without seeing it.
    But we used to own a Gottlieb super wide body Genie.
    Yes they are very very wide.
    Also be aware that the connectors for all the boards in the backbox usually need to be re done which is no small task.
    I have not checked to see if new boards or displays are still available for that game. I would google Gottlieb system 80 boards and displays and see what comes up.
    Gorgeous game though.

    Looking good for Royal flush to be in tourney. All is working, just ordered round 2 of parts this morning, a little more beautification top side on the playfield. And going to clean up the drops bottom side as one felt a little slugesh dropping.

    As long as its not raining I plan to bring a game (my pin hauler is a truck). I will come a little early so we can set it up, level it and so on.

    #1410 4 days ago

    What are everyone's pin plans this weekend? Jodester is stopping by tonight so we may get some games in.

    I set a new GC score on my TAF last night. Always fun.

    I would agree Google parts to start. If you are looking for more of a learner pin I would go with a Bally SS, New MPU $200 driver board, lamp board all available. But like above be prepared to be repining some female connectors. Depending on title and condition you can pick some of these up for good deals some times.

    Apparently it was a good deal. I reached out right after I posted and was pending pickup so I asked to be second in line. Seller took the post down so it's gone now. I'm sure I could repin connectors if I needed to, my biggest problem is finding time. My kids helped me re solder some capacitors on a board in a TV. Only reason I needed help was I couldn't read the ratings on them and needed some "young eyes". Heck my Pins were only turned on twice this week. I'm looking forward to the Romp in the Swamp. Is there somewhere i need to go to register? I also need an address or i'm going to be driving around Lake Charles gorging myself on brisket looking for somewhere to play..

    That is hilarious.
    Just PM Tiger-Law and he will let you know.

    Jodester came by last night and we solved that odd Varkon hang up (slightly bent metal rod, was a quick fix).

    All five events on June 18th are now up on the IFPA page. Each event will have a trophy. There are no cash prizes, all entry fees go 100% to cover event expenses (main dish food and trophies - we may ask a couple of you to bring side dishes like beans, cold slaw, potato stalid or rolls). We will have small (but cool) participation type prizes for all who enter (just like Romp I and Romp II did).

    Please let us know if you are coming. We are thinking we may be able to get up to 32 main bracket entrees...which would be incredible (will make parking interesting...but that would be a good problem for us to solve).

    Ok, so I found some pork butts on sale but can't find all of my equipment for making sausage. I will have to order a new handle for my stuffer. I will bring some English Bangers to the Tournament, but my family wants some for home. Had to have my daughter help me feed meat into the grinder and use it as a stuffer. My son and I are really looking forward to this even though it's quite a drive, we will probably stick to the main tournament and leave as soon as possible so we can get home at a decent hour. I made Bangers and Mash for dinner tonight.

    It was beyond belief good.
    Preston and I are leaving for on a cruise out of Miami at the end of the week, but we will be back around June 4th.
    Looking forward to heading over to Lake Chuck to play pinball, eat, and hopefully pick up the F14.

    Awesome! This is the third pin exchange that is going to be happening at Romp III that I've heard of. My neighbors are going to be like: "I wonder what they are really transporting in those cabinets". LOL

    Glad y'all can make it!

    I have not confirmed with Joshua yet that this will be ok, But it is the easiest way if he is coming and it works out for him.

    Hey Seth, I just saw that a BBQ place in Tomball made Texas Monthlys top 10.
    It is called the Tejas Chocolate Craftery.
    Have you tried it yet?
