    Quoted from Nevus:

    Loving TNA w/ Henry.
    He figured out the addiction of trying to get reactors right away. His best so far is 3.
    I love doing co-op with him.
    [quoted image]

    Co-op mode is the best feature in the game IMO. It is especially cool for new players...

    #3352 5 years ago

    I think the reactor 6 is the highest reactor the Lake Charles TNA has achieved. It was TigerLaw & Xerico playing a 4 player co-op together.

    Just posted our Aerosmith Pro on Facebook. Posting here as well for everyone in the region that is not on Facebook.
    $4900 OBO.

    Excellent condition Aerosmith Pro pinball machine. As close to NIB as it can get. Cabinet has no corner sepation issues and the inserts are all great as well. Game has newest code installed, just released by Stern. It also has some cool extras that really enhance this title. Any extra can be removed if it is not something you desire to have. Extras include: Shaker motor, mirror blades, backbox light kit, color inlane and slingshot protectors, candy apple shooter rod that matches cabinet color, green glow toy chest protector. Available for pickup in Beaumont or can be brought to the Houston show in October.

    Dang Leon! That is one very nice game. Very sorry to see it go. I got rid of my KISS and kept Aerosmith.

    Deadpool is supposed to be delivered today.

    #3357 5 years ago

    I love @jodester's Aerosmith! Very fun pin. What do you guys plan to replace it with?

    #3358 5 years ago
    Quoted from WavingWilly:

    Maybe Maiden or Munsters.
    We still have Monster Bash on Pre order as well.

    Did Deadpool make it in Jody?
    If so let’s see some pics

    Pics tonight. Set it up late due to poor help. ( Seth ) Played once with Josh and he almost beat me. Katana shot was about 50% so I need to adjust some things.

    Quoted from Jodester:

    I’ve been trying to do that for a while. Watching Henry reminds me that hand-eye coordination seems to be hard to adjust.

    #3361 5 years ago

    Hello club members! Just checking in on if we have potential dates for 2018 tourneys. I believe both Mudflaps and @jahpinwizard may be considering an event of some kind. Thanks!

    Quoted from Nevus:

    How frequently do you hit that shot Chris? I plan to check tonight that I am at 7 degrees or more.

    Hey @pinball-is-great, what’s a good date for a Shreveport tourney? I’m happy to host (as long as I’m in town), but I have a small collection (5 games).

    Lemme know!

    Sorry guys I'm out of town working and then they got me on the road again working, so not looking good for a tourney. The TX crew was having one https://pinside.com/pinball/events/5th-annual-oil-city-open-2018 and I think Jody had mentioned something about a possible Halloween one?

    Next time I will probably will see everyone is in Houston, I did take vacation for it.

    I will coordinate w/ some folks and look at the calendar and get back with you soon.
    Since it is already late Sep, and with the 30 day advance notice for IFPA tournaments, thus we are looking at a late Oct thru late Dec timeframe for a 2018 tournament, and/or have one in yr 2019.

    Pics requested...before and after speaker lights...

    Game shoots well. Especially cool that I have a Seawitch two pins down just like in Deadpool...

    Nice Jody!

    I don't hit the shot very often. Henry hits it petty regularly.

    I think my katana shot is about the same as yours. I do have problems with the mystery hole. The ball bounces out half the time. All the other shots are make able.

    When did you pick up Seawitch? I’ve always wanted one of those...

    In for the Mudflaps tournament!

    You will have to put the glass back on the games when you play in front of guests.

    After coordinating with Action76, I've created an event here on Pinside for a pinball party and tournaments tentatively set to be on Sat Dec 8th at his gameroom in the Jackson/Flowood, MS area. Still need to make some edits to the event details, but for now the plan is to have a dbl elim main tourney and a pin-golf side tourney, and to help Action and family celebrate their new gameroom. Hopefully a few Pinsiders in the region can join in on the fun. Feel free to click on the event and then click if you are planning to go to help give us an idea how many Pinsiders may be there. The two tourneys will be listed on IFPA website after we finalize details.

    Mudflaps, I sent you a pm. Please check it out and get back with me.

    Also just as a reminder, Arcade and KingNine are hosting pinball tournaments at their gameroom on Sat Nov 3rd in the Beaumont, TX area. Event details are listed on an event created in Pinside Events section. And info also posted on GCPC group pg on Facebook.

    Arcade, I just looked on IFPA website, and I did not see your Nov 3rd tournaments listed. Need to get-er-done listed before Oct 3rd if this got overlooked.

    Easy.

    Burpelson Air Force Base. I used to be stationed there. Col Jack D. Ripper was the wing commander.

    Welcome to Burpelson Air Force Base. In the United States Air Force, Strategic Air Command, we like to say that, "To err is human, to forgive devine.... neither of which is current SAC policy." And never forget that Peace is our Profession.
    I hope that you will enjoy your visit to all things Cold War and Doctor Strangelove. It is also hoped that you will, "Learn to stop worrying, and love The Bomb." Please bear in mind that you have neither the training nor the inclination for strategic thought, but after spending time at Burpelson AFB you may well increase both. Welcome.
    - General Jack D. Ripper, Commanding

    #3386 5 years ago

    The TPF tourney has too much waiting around. We will be skipping that tourney and just having fun at the TPF show generally. Looking forward to the HAAG tourney in a couple weeks though.

    #3387 5 years ago

    I have a client in LC looking to buy a used Houdini for 6k. If anyone has a lead on one let me know. Thanks.

    I am looking forward to league night tonight! I cannot wait to defeat my nemesis, @xq11.

    Quoted from WavingWilly:

    I am looking forward to league night tonight! I cannot wait to defeat my nemesis, xq11.

    That was the first league night I’ve missed since the spring league. Did you take out at XQ11 or does the rivalry carry forward?

    #3391 5 years ago
    Quoted from WavingWilly:

    I am looking forward to league night tonight! I cannot wait to defeat my nemesis, xq11.

    Yes, let's hear it Waving, how did it go the other night? Did you fight like Conan, or play more like Charlie Brown?

    #3392 5 years ago
    Quoted from WavingWilly:

    I am looking forward to league night tonight! I cannot wait to defeat my nemesis, xq11.

    Regardless of what the final score ultimately shows, WavingWilly double flips the whole time and calls the ump over when he tilts to complain about the settings. Pass it on.

    #3393 5 years ago

    My last day in Fairbanks Alaska and no pinball to be found. Good thing I’ll get a overload next week.

    #3394 5 years ago

    Pinball-is-great It is with a heavy heart that I tell you this... I played like Charlie Brown. I had career lows in 3 of the 5 pins. I have no one to blame but my idiot self.

    I want to scream out "KHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNN!!!" Like in Wrath of Khan, but shouting out XQ11 doesn't quite have the same ring to it.
