    Center shot for Jurassic Park was fixed at Round1 and was shooting well in general. Didn't play anything else, but saw there were high scores on Black Knight so presumably they fixed the auto-tilt problem with that.

    On the flip side a huge group of teenage girls got into a melee while I was there. Cops came and everything. So you take the good with the bad.

    Stranger Things at Barcade has been updated with the latest code. This adds a damage bar for the Demogorgon if you can't make the shot into his mouth.

    Simultaneously: It may be confirmation bias but I believe the ramp or the mech has been adjusted because the Demo shot appears to be much easier to make now. I hadn't made it in 30+ games before today and now have already hit it twice in three games.

    In other words: The shot is easier and the code is easier. Somebody come take down CPW's score before he posts a 6 billion.

    Good intel. I haven't been paying attention to the game/code much but I'm assuming there's some wiz mode for getting through all the gorgon modes. Might be time to try.

    In other STh news, The Gallery got a premium. Haven't played it yet but I'm looking forward to checking it out this week.

    Turns out I don't know what I'm I'm talking about. Still a STh pro at the Gallery.

    Got out to Tin Can in Port Richmond. Never been before but it's basically like every other bar in Fishtown. 4 shiny new Sterns. DP, STh and JP2 all playing well. Didn't play GB.

    Games are tucked in the corner and the place wasn't too crowded on a Friday night. Good experience. Will go again.

    Ok Philly pinheads, help me out please. On 7/6 I’m going to be in the Media area and looking to kill 12-14 hours. I see Pinball Gallery will be closed. Where can I go to play pinball all day? Try and keep me within 20-25 minutes of Media. Thanks!

    Mondays are not good for pinball ‘round here, I’m afraid.

    Well that’s not good to here! Do I need to load up my own machine?

    Don't think any locations open yet, Any locations open in Delaware?

    Pinball Gallery and Village Arcade are both open now but not on Mondays.

    #612 14 days ago

    You can come to my house, but not until I get off work and it's not 20-25 minutes away.

    #613 14 days ago

    TMNT (Pro) coming to PInball Gallery next week!

    Yes, Delaware is reopened.

    Looks like I'm SOL?

    As a Media resident, I can say that there are basically no options in Delaware County. Pinball gallery is closest, about 25 minutes away, but closed on Monday-Tuesday.

    That said, if you are driving, you can take 476 south to 95 north and get to the Barcade in Philly/Fishtown in under 30 minutes....or you can take the regional rail train from media to the city and get off within 2 blocks of it if you have an hour to burn and enjoy confined spaces these days.....

    Your other potential option is PinCrossing in Royersford. 30 miles/35 minutes away. Dont know if they are open on not....you'd have to check.

    Is Barcade open?

    You might have to play that by ear and check with them this weekend.... As of today, I think they are open for outdoor only, but Philly was scheduled to "go green" this Friday. Not sure what that means for Barcade. I've also seen rumblings today that it may not happen due to Philly potentially not making their milestones to allow the move to the next phase yet.

    Pincrossing has not reopened yet, but they’re closed on Mondays either way.
