    I have gotten a number of calls from folks living in Columbus Ohio to get their games fixed, and also from accounts where TNT Amusements in Columbus Ohio have games on location. The phone number listed in all google searches and apparently on the game itself has been disconnected for some time. People have assumed my TNT in Southampton has offices all over the USA, and call us! Does anyone know if they have closed their business? Todd Tuckey from Southampton TNT Amusements

    Here's a yelp page about the Ohio company:

    https://www.yelp.com/biz/tnt-amusements-columbus

    And a twitter account:

    https://twitter.com/tnttombo?lang=en

    And their official website, which seems to have been taken down and has the domain for sale:

    http://tntgame.com

    It doesn't seem like it is in active operation.

    Maybe it's time to set up a franchise?

    [edit]: According to archive.org, it looks like the tntgame.com website was last active in January 2014. By October 2014, it was offline.

    Could be an opportunity for you to sell some games, Todd

    Pretty sure they operate most of the games at the 16-bit locations and the pins mechanical locations. Could be wrong though.

    Yes, Tom Edwards is still around.

    I love watching their videos pretty funny... BUT I ran across some a game recently I was going to purchase for a friend, and the seller stated they worked on and there was some, how do you say "hacky" work done.

    Now, that's not to say ALL their work is questionable, they must do great work or they would not be so successful.

    I think you misunderstand. The guy asking is the guy who makes those videos, lol.

    As for the question, yes as stated Tom is still in business. He's kept very busy with a lot of the new barcades in Ohio. Not sure if he still does house calls. One of the best operators around though, his games are great and he knows his pinball.

    Once it leaves our hands, I cannot control who starts "repairing" it! Especially if the game gets alot of play or changes hands again and again over the years. You can sell a used car that you have gone over...but after someone drives it 15,000 miles, its gonna need brakes, etc. But when the game first leaves our shop, they are usually very nice.

    Drive on over and tell him to “get out!”

    You could refer them to Tilt Amusements for local service.

    Trent is one of the best for sure and operates in Columbus Ohio.

    I agree! Love your videos Todd!

    You guys have an immensely positive contribution to pinball IMO, and I personally have learned quite a bit from them. For that I’m very thankful.

    #17 2 years ago

    Thank you...glad you enjoy our videos!!

    #18 2 years ago

    +1 on the videos. Lots of good board deals too.

    #19 2 years ago

    I really do enjoy Todd's videos. I was a real newbie a few years a go, and I learned a lot by watching his videos.....its people like Todd that really help newbies in this hobby. I realize he does this for marketing purposes, but none the less their videos are very educational especially if your interested in buying a game your not familiar with.

    Tom operates all the pins mechanical and 16 bit games, and co owns and operates level one so Im not certain about house calls, but i believe Tish and him are super busy with all of their own machines these days. I wont speculate on whether or not he still provides these services but I can ask him at league.
