    #192 3 years ago
    Quoted from Arcade:

    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?

    Quoted from Zukboy2002:

    Tigerlaw and pav Let's see some pics from Greece.

    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.

    #194 3 years ago
    Quoted from scottslash:

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

    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.

    #195 3 years ago
    Quoted from Zukboy2002:

    Heres the plaques I made for the top 3 finishers

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

    #209 3 years ago

    Hello from Greece.


    #215 3 years ago
    Quoted from Pinball-is-great:

    Please clarify the rest of the wording on Tiger's shirt. I see: Sons of Liberty, Join to th...??
    The snake looks like the "Don't Tread on Me" snake. Related or same I assume.

    It says "Join to Thrive Acadamy". You know Tiger and his libertarian view point on things. He's so cute.

    #216 3 years ago
    Quoted from Zukboy2002:

    Awesome pics, any pinball over there?

    Pinball? There are not even LED lights here. I did see a little "modern arcade" earlier I will take Tiger to tomorrow. He misses our machines. I miss them too!

    Just a reminder about the tournament. And if we can get 20 people I will give away Williams beat time to the 1st place winner.

    Thanks for hosting us tonight. We had a great time as always. We made back to New Orleans safe and sound.

    Looking forward to Saturday.

    Quoted from Nevus:

    I'm trying to come up with a few surprises for the Red River Replay. No spoilers will be provided!

    Your tournament in September is on Tiger's birthday. He wants to go, so I hope one of the surprises is a cake for Tiger.

    Quoted from KingNine:

    I'm not sure. I'll have to ask him.

    Is Allen on Pinside?

    #455 3 years ago

    What games are you guys bringing to HAAG? Tiger and I are bringing our Quicksilver. Jodester has it running really nicely so we wanted to share it with everyone in Houston.

    #473 3 years ago

    A little rain is only refreshing, and rejuvenating in our case I am so excited about tomorrow!

    #497 3 years ago

    Our wonderful friend and tourney director Jodester. Thank you for everything!! I am so happy you won number one on Safe Cracker!!

    Hey Pinball-is-great,
    Thank you so much for letting me know!
    I was very happy to read your message, knowing that Greece can still triumph in certain areas.
    Looking forward to see you in Nevus's tournament!

    Quoted from Zukboy2002:

    Im looking to trade my X-Men LE Wolverine. Id trade down a little for the right pin. id also do 2 for one deals also. im open for suggestions if anybody is interested.

    Shocking I say!! Shame on you Zukboy. Already trading XMen? What did that beautiful machine do to you?

    My vacation from pinball is over.
    After my tournament in September I burned out and work got really busy. HAAG got me back in the spirit. Last night I hit the STLE and Safecracker for a while. I'm hoping to play a bunch this weekend.

    We hope you host another tournament soon!!

    What about Sat Jan 21 or Sat Feb 4th for a pinball party and a fun small tournament?
    March weekends not looking good for me. Too much going on.

    I'd like it to be after the Dallas Pinball Festival so I could go to!!

    Quoted from Pinball-is-great:

    This coming Feb, IFPA has the state tournaments set for Sat Feb 11, 2017. (Super Bowl Sun is Feb 5th, 2017

    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.

    #1025 2 years ago

    I just wanted to personally let you all know I'm looking forward to the pin party on June 18th. tigerlaw and pinball-is-great discussed the details at length tonight and it sounds like it will be a lot of fun. A big thank you to @jahpinwizard for maybe letting us borrow an EM for a day. Sounds like we will have over 25 commitments already, the extra machine will be really helpful. A big thank you to zukboy2002 for trophies. A big thank you to spg101 for smoking the meat and bringing it all the way from Houston. A big thank you, as always, to jodester for keeping everything running properly.

    Quoted from cadmium:

    Do y'all know of any good "in the wild" games or locations around the Lafayette area? Headed that way for a wedding in St. Martinville and both pinside & pinballmap look pretty sparse.

    Thank you for the nice letter!! We enjoyed having you two over and hope you come to more events!!

    #1603 2 years ago
    Quoted from KingNine:

    Edit: Tiger not sure if we are going but if we do you can tag along for sure.

    Wish I could make Houma but we will be sorting out our sitter situation then. We will have it figured out in time for the Shreveport tourney for sure though.

    Here is my newest addition

    Very nice addition!! Any of the Mississippi group of players coming to our house tomorrow for the party?

    #2139 1 year ago

    Thank you everyone from coming. We plan to do it again sometime in April when we have a better idea of the arrival date of TNA.

    IFPA should post the league results soon. I had missed an email from them last week with some questions they had regarding format that I have now responded to.

    Catacomb is still not in Lake Charles. Turns out the game was more incomplete than we thought so we had to order more parts for it.

    Quoted from Nevus:

    We picked up a game at Jody’s today, but he wasn’t home

    I am sorry I missed you guys when you came to Lake Charles. Has the X-Men machine been well received in Shreveport? I love the idea of a Shreveport league and a February tourney, count us in for certain.

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    The trophies aren’t made yet. We can rename the Side Tourney whatever we want to name it. “The J&T 28th wedding annivery classic’s tourney” sounds as good of a name as simply the classics tourney does to me. You’re for sure coming? How about the Mrs?

    You need to let Josh know so the trophies reflect the name change for the classics division.

    Quoted from Speed:

    He got another one I see. Don't get too drunk at his house, you'll wake up the next morning explaining to your wife why you "needed" another pinball machine! Then you'll spend the next week trying to explain to her how you have the space for the new machine!

    Which game did you end up deciding to get? Did you change your order to Gaurdians?

    Quoted from WavingWilly:

    Hey, everybody. TigerLaw first talked me into joining his winter pinball league and I now find pinball taking more and more of my free time. I had the privilege of helping him move Aerosmith in a few weeks ago. I will try to attend every tournament so that I can pad the winner's IFPA rankings. Cheers!

    Welcome to the party. Tiger says you’re getting a Scared Stiff?

    #2649 1 year ago

    #2699 1 year ago
    Quoted from WavingWilly:

    tigerlaw I see you updated your profile to reflect that you are posting from Athens, Greece. Any good pins over there?

    I am making Tiger take a week off playing pinball. We possibly could locate a machine or two but they are not common in this country. Arcades are not common here except on a couple islands and those are all redemption based. I think he has a deep clandestine plan to try and sneak off with Phillip and Ferdinand who have both just arrived and scrounge around for a pin somewhere but he is on his own there and I am on to him anyway.

    I know Tiger is really looking forward to the league starting up again in a couple weeks. Catacomb ended up being the game that came out to fit speed ‘s WOZ into the league lineup. We ordered the ball gate stopper for the bagatelle from cottonm4 and jodester has rebuilt the pop bumpers for more action and easier ball locks. Catacomb will be better than ever upon its eventual league return in the future.

    #2708 1 year ago
    Quoted from action76:

    Goodbye Big Buck Hunter, we hardly knew ya.

    Always a sad day seeing a machine leave. Big Buck Hunter is a cool game too. Where is it going? What is taking its place?

    #2718 1 year ago
    Quoted from Jodester:

    We better unbox IMDN as soon as you get back. Seems like there are lots of adjustments with the Premium. (And possibly issues)

    We get back around midnight Tuesday. Perhaps we can have a little unboxing party one day next week? We miss you guys!! Off to the baptism this morning though.

    #2721 1 year ago
    Quoted from action76:

    Had a great time at SFGE again this year. I know it would be a bit of a haul for most of you guys but if you could swing it, it is a great show.

    tigerlaw has been wanting to go to a show in addition to TPF and HAAG. I’ve promised him we can do a third show in 2019. The Seattle, Denver, and Atlanta shows seem to be the ones we are considering. So sad that New Orleans has no show.

    #2723 1 year ago

    I hear there is a rumor that xq11 may have ordered an unknown NIB machine. I also hear that tigerlaw ‘s long desired Transformers pin may have been purchased by a friend and may be heading somewhere in to Lake Charles soon. Details on both new machines are scarce.

    We are all about to head to the airport. We will see you all soon. Please let us know who all may be coming in for the tourneys on the 22nd and 23rd of this month so that we can plan the food and trophies what not. We hope to see many of you.

    #2759 1 year ago
    Quoted from Marcbud:

    Here is the ColorDMD, LED Lighting, and flipper rebuild kit with upgraded EOS switches ready to go for the new #Scared Stiff when it makes it to its new home in Mandeville. I'm pretty excited!

    Thank you for keeping it at the office for a little while. I was able to play a few games on it and the machine is super nice and plays really challenging. You will have many good times with Elvira and enjoy installing the color DMD and other mods.

    We want to see photos of it set up in its home.

    #2761 1 year ago

    I voted for you action76

    Also, we have been asked by a couple people what 4 games may be in the Saturday side tournament. tigerlaw has selected CSI for the side tourney and of course I picked Medusa. jodester will pick one as his liking as one of the four, then the three of us will jointly agree on the fourth game.

    As a further update, we are uncertain about TNA’s timely arrival. TNA No. 174 is assembled and at the factory we are told but will not be play tested and boxed up for shipping till tomorrow. If it also ships out tomorrow we will have it for Saturday but there is a good chance it doesn’t ship out till Wednesday and then we will not have it for the tourney. Quicksilver will be in a stand alone tourney in place of TNA if TNA is not here.

    Quoted from Jodester:

    I went 3 ton and it's too much. I should have gone smaller.

    Jodster is trying to cryogenically freeze himself, his family, and his guests.

    Any thoughts on the Deadpool stream? Tiger only saw a couple minutes and I did not see any of it.

    That is good news for everyone!! Congratulations Jodester!!

    We are looking very much forward to hosting the league finals tomorrow. The Walking Dead, Sorcerer, Quicksilver, and The Adams Family will decide the season.

    Quoted from Nevus:

    Deadpool in the Gameroom.

    Congratulations on the new game!! I am so sorry to miss your tournament this weekend. I look forward to catching up with you at the Houston show. Are you bringing your family this year?

    #3209 1 year ago

    Yes, we will help you any time as well!! Just let us know. How are you feeling today?

    Glad to hear the tournament went well. Really wish I could have made it. I think this was the first tournament Nevus had I couldn’t make. Will there be another Shreveport tourney this year?

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Heck yes!!! jahpinwizard can we squeeze a tourney in at your place before end of the year? Would love to see your new game room

    This would be amazing. Do we have the dates?

    Quoted from PoBoyPinball:

    If y’all don’t mind pissing on my trees (I live in the country) we can have a tourney. I still don’t have a finished bathroom in my game room

    This could get tricky for a couple of us.

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    We should go over there one Sunday night wavingwilly I could actually do next Sunday if they will have us and if you can drive?

    Perhaps next weekend we can have a sitter and both go.

    Hi club!! I haven't logged in to Pinside in awhile. I wish I could have been here for the pinball swap a couple weeks ago. All the machines are working as they should be now. The tournament should a lot of fun!! No one has mentioned any plans for food for the tournament. Is the plan to just grab pizza or something?

    Looking forward to seeing everyone!!

    Thank you for taking such good care of Star Trek for us. It is playing great. Did you install lit speakers? I don’t remember it having those?

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    We need to get both James and Josh to host an event and add it to the list

    James said he would host one this year in his new game room. Did he ever find a name for his annual tourney?

    Quoted from Nevus:

    Great day. Thanks to all that traveled to Shreveport

    The boys had a lot of fun. Thank you for hosting. Sorry I couldn’t make this one but I will try and coordinate the sitter for your fall tourney. Do you have the date for fall?
