    Welcome epichoff,

    Look fwd to meeting you and playing some pinball.

    As you probably already know, pinball out on location in most of Louisiana is rather slim pickings (except, Shreveport has games in various places). Fortunately, in the past five years or so, quite a few pinball enthusiasts around the state have started buying/fixing/collecting pinball machines, and several are here on Pinside.

    You are welcome to join in on a small pinball tournament in Houma, LA on Sat Jul 16th if it fits your schedule.

    Cheers,

    #161 2 years ago

    I see that Lloyd still has his 1979 Gottlieb Pinball Pool machine. I've got one that still plays pretty well.
    That's cool that you went there to check out his place, and spend a little bit of money there.

    Awesome! Come check out the Golden Nugget. It is even nicer than LaBerge.

    Quoted from Arcade:

    About 24" long

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    I checked out the Golden Nugget last Fri night for the first time when I went to a rock concert.
    Also hit the Fri night casino buffet and walked along the boardwalk by the waters edge.
    They have a small marina/boat dock, and an outside beach style bar & grill.
    The boardwalk runs the full length from Golden Nugget to L'auberge.

    #174 2 years ago

    This new machine announcement thread will probably get a lot of posts tomorrow.
    It's already got the little flame by it in the main Forum page.

    Note: This is the Enthusiasm Phase at the moment. The bitching will come later on.

    #175 2 years ago

    Your mission Tiger should you chose to accept it is to find out what pinball machine, if any, is in the arcade at the Golden Nugget.

    None sadly.

    #177 2 years ago

    Their website mentions pinball, so i think we should "call" them on it, and try to get them to install at least 2 machines, and get rid of some of that other crap. Im being serious (in a friendly manner).

    Agreed

    I just went to their website arcade section and don't see it? Do you have a link? They absolutely did not have pinball when I went there last, but that was a few months ago and things change.

    #180 2 years ago

    No picture of a pin, but the wording in the arcade tab specifically mentions pinball, maybe twice iirc.

    #181 2 years ago

    Yeah, the arcade in the Lake Charles Golden Nugget is right next to the buffet. Was there 3 weeks ago. No pin. Of course.

    #182 2 years ago

    There was a stern Elvis at imperial palace last year but I seen it for sale on Craigslist a few months back. Haven't been back since

    The Moncla Mafia had a really nice modded Elvis they sold about two years ago as I recall.

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Yes we did.
    And the best part is it is only a mile from my house now.
    I really liked Elvis and it was a great looking pin.

    Why did Preston not play in the Austin Papa tournament?

    We are still in Athens visiting my parents. We will go over to the island tonight and take pictures tomorrow. I loved your Facebook pictures.

    I have only seen one pinball on rout in Lake Charles. It is the Rolling Stones machine at the movie theater. Tiger says there is a south park in a bar nearby but I've never seen it.

    Quoted from Zukboy2002:

    Are you going to make ones for our tournament on August 13 as well?

    #196 2 years ago
    Quoted from PavBall:

    Are you going to make ones for our tournament on August 13 as well?

    Yes, they will look different though. Also, he's even going to make a special one for the Safe Cracker only side tournament.

    #197 2 years ago

    Will try and make Aug 13 tournament. Will be in fort walton on the 16th of July. Anyone know of any pins in the area? (Destin, fort walton, pensacola).

    #198 2 years ago

    Yes I will throw a ghostbusters le party when I take delivery of it. Will be about a year though because im paying for it a little bit every month. That machine is expensive but worth the $ and the wait.

    #199 2 years ago
    Quoted from epichoff:

    I don't know of any, try starting a thread in the "Locations" section and ask where to play there. Also, look on Pinside map (sometimes it is outdated, but would almost assuredly reveal arcade locations.

    Glad you're coming for the Aug 13th tournament. You'll be the first person from the Lafayette area at one of our Gulf Coast parties.

    If you have an IPhone there is Pinball finder app you can install. It can be dated for some locations it needs pinheads such as us to update it when you find a game on location or remove one if it's no longer there. I have found it to be useful
