    Quoted from Arcade:

    And for those of you who have been to our gameroom here at the house, here are some early days shots of what our lineup used to look like before we even knew you could have tournaments or pinball parties.
    Notice the old paneling from the early days before the hurricane destroyed the room.

    I am looking at that lineup with Indy, WW, STTNG, Totan and I am floored. Awesome pics!

    Yea.
    We have always had more pinballs then we have space for or money to keep them.
    If we could have kept all, of the over 100 games we have owned over the years our collection would be very impressive.
    A lot of those we would love to have back right now, but we had to eat and send our kids to school. lol
    I will try and dig up some more old photos later.

    Here is a fun one.
    How many people keep a pin out in the middle of their yard? We did.

    #105 3 years ago

    looks like Cyclone, I have that game... Except mine sheded its paint.

    #106 3 years ago

    Photo filename says Comet, which is in the same series of 3 with theme park theme, correct?

    #107 3 years ago
    Quoted from Pinball-is-great:

    Yep I missed that so the real question is how long did it stay in the middle of the yard and did it get played in the yard? I once bought a cocktail pin and played it in my van before I pulled it out when I got it home.

    #108 3 years ago

    It was indeed a Comet.
    It was 1 of 2 that we owned.
    One of them sacrificed its life for the other.
    We used to store them in our barn until we had time to work on them.
    So we were young and would just carry them two houses down. This was just a temporary resting spot.

    #109 3 years ago

    Came across a few more that I had already scanned in the past.
    Just look how young we were. lol
    All of these pins were free!!!!
    We rescued them from a local route operator that was going out of business and had them stored under a covered outdoor shed.
    Also shown is the barn we stored them in until such a time as we could restore them. All of them made it except the Hollywood. All the parts on it were toast.

    Yes it does.
    That was our first Captain Fantastic of two
    And our first Twin Win of two.
    Of course you have the second Twin Win now.

    Totally different Hollywood.
    The playfield on this one had really bad water damage.

    Here is a link to info on a pinball tournament in mid July (Sat 16th) in Houma, LA.
    https://www.facebook.com/events/115051738917517/
    See events at Gulf Coast Pinball Club on Facebook, and/or event is registered on IFPA Pinball website.
    .
    2016 South Louisiana Summer Pinball Tournament:
    Tournament starts at 2:00PM you can start arriving around 12:00PM to practice. Drinks and snacks will be provided but you are welcome to bring your own. Tournament format is Double elimination, best 3 out of 5 matches. Entry fee is $20.00 Prize money for 1st 2nd 3rd place. Machines will be set on free play at private location. Will be a IFPA points Tournament.
    .
    This tournament is closer for the New Orleans area folks, so perhaps it will work out that some NOLA area pinball players will be able to make it, and be able to hang out and visit at the party afterwards.

    Quoted from Zukboy2002:

    Just brought this bad boy home!!

    Love the X-Men. Looks fantastic.
    And lets see some photos of Whitewater even if you are still working on it.

    Would love to make the tourney but I think it is the same weekend as an Auction I have to go to in Dallas.
    We have a bunch of redemption games in storage that we really need to get rid of for space and the auction is that Saturday.

    #117 3 years ago

    Found this in another thread and thought you guys would care to see it.
    This is Tigerlaw's refinery edition Metallica just finished.
    His is the one on the far left/front.
    It has the LSU purple and yellow on Sparky and the black light bars for the side art to light up with the flashers.
    Should be a blast to play.

    Is that Tiger's X-men? Looks good!

    #120 3 years ago
    Quoted from Nevus:

    Heck no! Tiger's XMen is bolted to the floor. Check my personal Pinside machine rankings.

    Yea, it does look amazing. Can't wait to go to Houma next and snag the GC score on it.

    It looks beautiful, but very expensive. Let me unburden you with a slight geographic relocation of SafeCracker...

    Quoted from Nevus:

    SC has been getting a lot of love lately at our house. It is a top 3 game for PavBall, and the guests all freak out with it...especially the kids...though our token count is dropping fast!

    I'll be having a side tournament on August 13th with Safe Cracker: one game for each participant - Assault the Vault wizard mode with a token. Top two scores have a head to head side tournament championship game on Varkon with winner take all.

    #124 3 years ago

    Yeah it's a fun game. I like banter about it, but really I can wait until one finds me. I really enjoy the coming and going and I've already had a good bit of traffic for 2016. I need to chill a little and enjoy.

    BTW, I'm heading down most likely the day after the tournament on the 17th for a swap with Jody.

    #125 3 years ago

    Just got a new crystal clear ramp for Whitewater.
    Looks oh so good.
    Now we can see the ball in the whirlpool much much better.

    That's a pretty big difference but not as big as when you guys did the TAF ramp change. Do you still have pics from changing out the TAF ramps? Man, I'm looking forward to heading yalls way again soon and seeing this White Water!

    #127 3 years ago

    Yea. That's because the Addams Family used a smokey colored ramp to begin with.
    The Whitewater ramp was just dirty and scratched up.
    Here are the Addams ramps.

    Do you like it better with the clear ramp? It looks better to me in the photos.

    Yes.
    Everyone likes the clear ramps much better.
    May do Twilight Zone later on as it has the smoky ramps from the factory as well.

    Yep as Leon said: the votes are are all for it being better. It's night and day in my opinion

    I'm a big believer in a little father and son Novus time.

    Whoo Hooo!!!! I'm ready to push that start button.

    #138 3 years ago

    Just got these in the mail yesterday.
    Sadly no game to put them in yet.
    Perhaps we should put them in Game of Thrones until GB arrives someday.

    I've passed on my GB Prem for now. I didn't want to, but my pin spending was getting a little silly this year. I've kind of let myself settle into the idea of a HUO GB pro in a year or so.

    And last but not least is my favorite all time pinball machine set up picture. Jody photo bombed Tiger and Ferdinand.

    #148 3 years ago

    Love the photo's guys.
    Thanks for sharing.
    We will be over to play as soon as we can.

    Also love the smaller hammer. Was never a fan of the large clunky one on the game.

    #149 3 years ago

    Looks good Tiger and Pav.
