Good to see everyone last night. Sorry I couldn't make until after 9pm but what a great crowd still active that late on a Monday. Think there was still around 25 people and a lot of new faces. We will continue to add games as this grows to be fair to everyone that has helped us start this cool event.

We also appreciate all the talk and buzz you guys have created. I have had a lot of emails about this location and other events that we have discussed.

I also want to thank Alex, Meg and Chrisb for hosting this. They put a lot of effort into the space and there is a lot more than letting people flip games. The space is extremely clean, the games are well kept and the service is still very good being there is only a single bartender and 1 tech.

Thanks again everyone, I have log some requests and if everything pans out the way we envision then I will likely honor all of them. In the meantime, the road map is what I have mentioned above until we have all the wrinkles are ironed out. See you again soon!

Cheers!!

cjmjmm2006 knows for sure, but I was told the unit would arrive on or around 12/8, one week before the scheduled Launch Party tournament.

It should be there soon. I was billed shipping on it so I assume freight forwarder has picked this up. I could be wrong. I ship a lot of stuff. Haha

Let me inquire and I will get you an actual date. Sorry for this.

Pretty nice event on Monday! Enjoyed quite a bit of good beer, and good pinball too! I'll definitely keep my eye open for the next event.

Great. I will be out at some point. I have a few small repairs to make so if you see me kick me in the head. Have fun Bobby!

Finally was able to stop in. Nice set up. Very nice people. Lots of LEs and new titles. First time I got to play TNA. I’ll be back. Thanks Chris.

#268 1 year ago

Thanks for always being so supportive Mark! Stop out for a free play night one of these Monday's. It would be great to see you again.

Want to shout out a legend, Hoops Jones for linking me with Chrisb from Helicon!

Man I need to lose a few pounds, or like 40.

For everyone that does not have Facebook, all events and information will be announced on the Helicon Brewing Website!!

Here is the link: http://heliconbrewing.com/arcade

Some cool events are coming up. If you can make it, stop by!

#271 1 year ago

I stopped in for a while this afternoon, and got to play the Beatles. Very fun game on location. It’s definitely not a deep game, but that loop shot is great.

JJPOTC is still my favorite in house. It’s an incredible game.

Thank you for visiting again! We appreciate it. I stacked a bunch of multiballs on Pirates the other day, made me realize how much I love it! =)

As a non-facebooker, I'm very pleased to see that Helicon is announcing upcoming tournaments and launch parties on its website here:

http://heliconbrewing.com/arcade/#heliconopen

My favorite sentence is the last one under "Notes" at the bottom of the page.

Hoping that one of my Pittsburgh trips next year aligns with one of these events.

#274 1 year ago

Agreed, I love having that information on a website as I don't use Facebook either. I had no idea about the Helicon Open I am so down for that it's crazy.

Haha. From my phone I cannot see it. Lol

Yes, we have brought to Pittsburgh the only Killer Queen between Morgantown and Columbus!! Helicon will be scheduling a tournament in January. I know this is not pinball, however this is a very fun, cooperative 5v5 Joust meets original Mario Bros!

Stop by and check it out!

This is a really good co-op game. One thing pinbal lacks is direct head to head play. We will not have video games long term at Helicon but this will be making its Pittsburgh appearance there. =)

This will be the only unit in the Pittsburgh market.
