I feel very lucky to have a place like Pocketeer that has over 60 games in my backyard! Plus they always get the latest and greatest! Can't imagine there are many places in the country that have this kind of selection of games to play!

Great place. This was the bar where I first played alien and basically cost me $xxxx bc it blew me away. Great over great place highly recommended. A true pinballer.

Can't wait to get some hands on play

I was able to stop in and play a few games.

It seemed very mellow with a nice mix of old school feel and newer tech looks.

However out of three games I lost one ball on each game hitting a tiny letter target and ball flying through the air over flippers with no possible chance of saving . Ie Ghostbusters but right in the middle of play field.
One ball hit the apron real hard and bounced back into play. So three balls with flying feat.
But one ball in each game is one reason I don't put any more money in GB. First impressions are everything. Flipper strength, playfield slope or targets design should be looked at.

I also got to try out GoTG Prem and that code just seems a mess. Songs, call outs, oh my.

Is aliens 100% working? Ie) head
I wanted to try another game but flashbacks of games hanging just came to mind and I kept waking.

Put my money into older titles mostly, ngg, bbh, and the like.

Good time though as usual. See ya again soon.
