Wish I'd known you were in town Joe! I would have met you for some teacher/student dollar game wagers

Joe will take you broke. Keep your cash bookie! =)

Quoted from wesman:

I agree with that mentality completely! (I even think it deserves a different spot than where it's at in the facility presently.). Safecracker was one of my favorites when I visited the Silver Ball Museum in Jersey this past summer!
Do you guys use a lift system for moving them about, when the escalara isn't present? I saw a really cool video regarding a Harbor Freight lift, that seemingly has had some popularity here on the site.

Any thoughts on bringing any JPOP pins in? I'd love to see a TOTAN, CV, or TOM!
And I'm guessing the Munsters should be pulling up in Dragula, any day now.......?

Chrisb has a pin dolly on site. He's the man when it comes to the layout.

As far as JPOP games at Helicon, they will cycle in for sure. At this very moment WCS is out and there is a chance another JPOP will enter. Still many new games are incoming so it's making it harder to bring in classic titles.

Even with the snow!? Helicon continues to be the best. If work wasn't so crazy right now (on the metro going in right now). I'll be back soon

Did the Munsters roll into town today?

Software updates are in progress. A Jokerz! (Williams, 1988) also arrived today. It is in excellent condition and playing well.

Thanks again to @cjmjmm2006 for making this happen!

Cheers,
Chris

Thanks, Chris--you have a lot of faith in my ability to win. But these younger guys are coming on strong. My State College operator friend and I had a blast playing the other night--we kept coming back to Lexi--and we had a nice talk with Chris B. The lineup and game organization are both impressive.

My Bookbinder, I'll plan to let you know the next time I'm in town and have time to play at Helicon.

Stopped by this weekend and had a good time. Really liked the Oatmeal Stout too. Got midnight madness on one of the Munsters as well which I wasn't expecting.

Joe actually told me to get into competitive pinball while playing some casual games at Chronic Town when I picked up that TZ almost 3 years ago to the day. 2.5 years later, my 195 IFPA ranking suggests he made the right call. I'll take the $1 game challenge any time.

Hmm. You're tempting me, Mr. Bookbinder. Will the student teach the teacher?

You have done incredibly well since then. I still like Joe in a 1 game scenario. All love! Haha

Get him Joe!

Well looky here!

Thanks so much to Chris and Melissa at CoinTaker for the hospitality, the wine, the bulbs, the swag!!

So monster bash in the house?

EDIT - I can confirm yes.....and it's beautiful. Dare I say it's nicer looking than my pirates. No joke.

#374 12 days ago

chrisb curious, so for tomorrow, we wouldn't pay a fee for entry, but we pay for each play while competing, correct?

#375 12 days ago

Gotta ask Chrisb. I don't know how to tag people

Oh sweet! Is that the new add-on board? (Excuse my most likely erroneous terminology, haha!)

Man, definitely have to stop in tomorrow! I was weighing...doing responsible things or this. Fun wins out, yet again...!

That's awesome news Chris! Definitely lookkng forward to seeing how that functions. I recall the owner of Vaporosity in Sharon doing backflips over that idea!

When you do that, what is it actually supposed to do? Do I get alerted in a manner I normally would not?

#398 9 days ago

Thank would make the next tournament this Saturday 2/16/19

It seems like it only makes a person's profile available via hotlink. On most forums, there should be a notification sent to them. I haven't seen that feature on here oddly....
