Nor should they! Lol

Oh hey everybody! I missed this thread somehow. I thought the hoosier thread had been pretty quiet. We just had a great Saturday social at the pinvault. I need to get back over to centerpoint!

See ya tamaree night SuperMoot!

#54 2 years ago

I may do the downtown Indy pinball trifecta tomorrow night - CenterPoint Brewery, Tappers, and Pinvault. Goal is to put my initials up at some point during the evening!

#55 2 years ago

pin2d hit me up at the vault. I want to hi-five you and yell about how your website rules. My parents didn't name me supermoot, I go by Matt.

#57 2 years ago

What time do you guys plan on doing this?

#58 2 years ago
Quoted from indypinhead:

I believe PinVault opens at 6. I'm going down before that to CenterPoint and Tappers and maybe another place or two that have single pins. Love being able to do a pinball crawl in Indy.

#59 2 years ago

Was at Center Point last night before Incantation. Games are in immaculate shape. DI was fun...def has that "one more game" vibe. AS is always fun for me too. But I liked the HS2 the most...great addition.
There was probably 30 people in there...I was the only one playing pinball. Losers.

#60 2 years ago

Tonight!
Come for the pinball and stay for the SACRED FUCKING LEATHER!!!

Not one to sleep on kids. This is not death metal or grind or thrash. Straight up razor sharp "80's style" old school heavy fucking metal. Come bang yer head with me brothas.

#62 2 years ago

Gryszzz in Fountain Square? I'm leavin.

#63 2 years ago

PinVault RULES.

#64 2 years ago

Agreed. I was a little disappointed though that neither you nor supermoot look much like your avatars.

Sorry I haven't been on this thread for a minute. To answer the question of hours of operation at centerpoint, I'll attach the hours here and the new pin on location at Centerpoint.

To the operator of the 3 pins at Black Circle Brewing: get yer shit together homie...be more like Bud!
LW3 needs complete flipper rebuild--unplayable--and you owe me .75.
EVERY single plunge on SFII careens sdtm. Is this machine supposed to do that? Seems like the lane guides need adjusted BADLY. Good luck nudging....instant tilt. Needs a bath too.
WWF was pretty fun...but if you even look at the wrong way it fucking TILTS. Jesus man I understand ya don't want fools death sliding and shit...but loosen that tilt a cunthair ffs. Makes playin a fun machine NO FUN. This one was in good shape and played well. Just THE tightest tilt evah.
Not trying to be a dick, well, maybe I am, but a bar that cool deserves better.
Tighten up!

#68 2 years ago

Gettin ready to hit up Centerpoint before Legion tonight if anybody is out and about. I should be draining all kinds of stuff around 6.
Somebody come show me how to play DI.

#69 2 years ago

Man oh man the magnets on DI are just cuh raaa zee. Really diggin this one.
Just met Bud, the operator. He was here cleaning the glass and pf's. Super cool cat and most importantly, keeps his pins IMMACULATE.
If yer looking for the best playing pins in Indy that DON'T have an ass-tight tilt THIS IS IT.
Thanks for the 2 credits on MM Bud...yer awesome.

Bud, is this a show up at that time and we'll figure it out thing? Or a PM you ahead of time thing?

Also, thanks for the info on Sinking Ship. I was just lamenting to myself how there is no star wars pinball in Indy! Glad to know I was wrong.

#85 2 years ago

Looking good, my friend!

Just wanted to give you a heads up. I recently went over to Black Circle and serviced all their pins. They're all playing great now. Go enjoy!

You're doing the good works!

#89 2 years ago

Well my review might've been a tad rough round the edges, but the squeaky wheel attracts more flies than vinegar, er, something like that. Thanks for the heads up and the hard work Nate! Black Circle is such a great spot.

#90 2 years ago

Tomorrow is Pinball Saturday for me, CenterPoint first, then The Sinking Ship, then Black Circle, then try to fit Tappers in before ending at PinVault. Thanks to all that keep these pins on location!

#91 2 years ago

Bud, is the Sinking Ship your lineup too?

Also, when will Connor's get a shake up?

Thanks for helping with the Indy Pin scene!!!!

#92 2 years ago

Luke is another pinhead that lives in Fountain Square, my name is Jeff. We’ll be at CenterPoint and eventually going up to Broad Ripple for a couple stops, then down to Fountain Square to Pinvault and maybe Tappers. Love the pinball scene here now, see you later today!

#95 2 years ago

Your name is LUKE now too.
My name is Jonas.

So sorry I'm just now getting around to answer your question. It was just a show up thing, there will be monthly tournaments at centerpoint, we are going to be an IFPA location soon and I do believe the ship has some plans for pinball stuff too!

The ship belongs to the fine gents, Nate Luke and Rick Dunn. Those are some busy fellas, they are busting their backs to have great playing pins and increase the scene for Indy pinball!

I don't know when I'm going to change the scene at Connors, real soon I hope.

#98 2 years ago

...and Nate Luke is a different pinhead from this Luke.

Centerpoint will be hosting the IFPA State Championships on January 20th, 2018. Big thank you to bud for the help and for allowing us to use his location on the day. The IFPA State Championships are invitation only for the top 16 ranked players in the state. The tournament will start at noon and is usually completed by about 5 pm or so. If there would be interest in having a separate tournament, later in that evening, I would be happy to help organize something that day open to everyone. If there is interest just post here and let us know. Again thank you, and to those of you currently ranked in Indiana look for an email in the first week of January inviting you to participate.
