Okay, I am in Alpine Arizona today. It is in northern AZ and the nearest town (Alpine is not incorporated) is 25 miles away and that is a small place. Phoenix and Tucson are both 250 miles away to give you an idea. There is a place called the Alpine Grill and Still. The only other restaurant was closed due to staffing issues. Eat there sometimes, bar is nice and homey. So I walk in to get a burger and see this murderers row of pins lined up. If Charlize Theron had been sitting there dressed as Furiosa I would have been less surprised. Pins are owned by the bar owner, and all in great condition. Played for 15 minutes, but my dog was in the bed of the truck so I had to leave - gosh darn mutt! If you know Alpine, the town probably has 200 people, but of course the pop increases due to folks like me escaping the heat. Several of these games I had never played. Can you believe two JJP games??!!

This is awesome find.
Did you ask if he was on pinside by chance?

Great find. Thanks for posting.

This is a genius move. Pins’ owner was probably told by his/her spouse “no more pins in the house”, so he/she put extra machines in the business. Everyone wins.

He was not there, but staff told me about the pins. Have met the owner and will go by this weekend. Did not know he was a pinhead until this week.

I see the GC is 166mil on STh. I'm imagining starting with a few quarters and banging out free games until they lock up for the night.

Seems to be added to the Pin Map as of Feb 2022 by someone else who stumbled on this gem of a lineup.

Also, super nice Blue Heeler in your avatar, OP!

Thanks, in his prime he was an actual working cattle dog. Heelers are great dogs, stubborn, super smart, and did I mention stubborn?

I am going back today to play some pinball at the Alpine Grill, sans canine this time.
