    Hey Nor Cal friends! Myself and a good friend just started streaming my pins together a couple weeks ago and have been having an absolute blast! This Will be our third week and we have gotten so much love and support from the pin streaming community and viewers. I would like to extend an invitation to all of you to come check out our next live stream this Wednesday at 8PM! This weeks stream will be my Wizard of Oz! We plan to play normally but we will also be playing some 9 hole pin golf on it as well. Come stop by and just say hi or stick around chat and have a beer with us and request your favorite song. In the future we both would really love to branch out and do some streams with other local pinheads and their collections as well! Thank you all so much for your time and hopefully we will see some of you this Wednesday. You can find us at Twitch.tv/Xanist_tv Cheers all!!!

    New episode of "The Spinner is Lit" dropped!!!

    On this week's episode, Practical Steve joins us to discuss his love of all things pinball and his journey into the hobby. We discuss the news of the day and highlight some upcoming shows: Expo, White Rose Gameroom Show, and the Houston Arcade Expo. We also get sentimental and review a beloved classic, Williams Rollergames. We learn that both Spencer and Practical Steve are willing to flip flop when passionately pushed for answers during our first installment of "Fact or Fantasy" and we wrap up with a "Top 10" reveal of some of our most loved EM titles.

    I've got an NBA Fastbreak I'll be putting on the market soon, if anyone is interested. Will post to market soon, but in the meantime, if you're interested, contact me. Thanks.

    #4658 1 year ago

    Considering selling : MMr limited (black) with color update......Ghostbusters Premium (perfect condition)....Game of Thrones Premium (perfect condition).

    let me know if one of these floats your boat. I will do the Pinside donation if sell. I am in Danville

    #4659 1 year ago

    Looks like im going to be selling my Wizard of Oz ECLE. Has only around 500 games on it and is in beautiful shape. It is however in need of a drop target retract coil which malfunctioned due to a loose connector from the factory that caused it to fire rapidly. Other than the one coil the rest of the game is in perfect condition. PM me for more info or Pictures. Thanks all.

    Not me, but a good amount of friends lost their houses

    #4669 1 year ago

    I just drove into town to help family in the North Bay. Since it looks like we will be here for a while I figured that I would reach out to you folks.

    Does anyone have some spare Bally playfield support hinges like these in a Medusa? I also need a 7-digit backbox light board, and four 7-digit displays.

    I need left and right sides.

    Ive been personally affected, I had to evacuate my father in law who has been very ill, during the evac to our local hospital he died in the back seat of my brother in laws truck as there wasnt any ambulance's available. Not sure if his home was destroyed as we are still not allowed to check it out. My personal home is on evac watch. I ask for thoughts and prayers for all the victims of this tragedy.

    Don't you need to pay people to take Gold Wings?

    ...and am I the only one surprised it wasn't a pinball about Honda motorcycles?

    Okay, I'll believe you.

    I finished my Stern Seawitch and have extra playfield, backglass and lower cabinet. I would like to sell to someone who has parts to make complete game. Playfield is decent, and cabinet is solid.

    I case anyone is interested, I lowered the price of my Dr. Dude for sale to $1900. Located in Fresno. I need the room for another game I committed to buy. I don't have to sell Dr. Dude, so I wont be giving it away, but I'd rather see someone enjoying it than folding it up and storing it in the garage.

    Thanks to Loren for an amazing Pinball and Pints party in Vacaville yesterday. Fantastically maintained collection. Super friendly bunch of folks. Wish I’d brought my ten year old — great family atmosphere. The food was awesome, too!

    You guys are great to newcomers. I’ve been into pinball since the early 90s (Library Arcade in Davis, Ca.), But am new to Pinside. Loren responded right away to my PM with an invitation to attend. Made some new friends.

    Agreed! Fantastic food, friends and a heck of a lineup of pins! Thanks Loren!

    #4697 1 year ago

    First timer too, great meeting you Ben and others in the community as well.
    And my first time playing Orbitor 1 in years.
    Very gracious of you Loren! Thank you again!

    #4698 1 year ago

    Be careful going to Loren's. His pins are so nice you'll leave wanting to add something new to your collection.

    Thanks again for hosting, Loren!

    #4699 1 year ago

    Couldn't agree more BenLogan! Another first timer, along with my brother and good friend, that were welcomed like old family friends! GREAT Pin Party Loren, we had a blast!

    Also, very cool to see you Ben from the PAGG shows the last couple of years, and fellow Concord Pinhead Bryce!

    #4700 1 year ago

    My calendar is marked for November 11th at the Flipper Room. I’ll bring my nerdy brother, too. So glad you guys have a new spot in Concord. Great connecting with Phil, Pete, and Mike. Super chill dudes!
