    Hey everyone. I am pretty new to pinball. Im a 24 year old FAU student who found out about pinball through twitch. I have only been playing for 4 or so months but I am addicted. But unfortunately if you live in Boca Raton, you know that there is no pinball here. The only pinball I know about is the Pin Bot at the bowling alley and vintage pinball. Vintage is great but I am looking for some more modern machines and maybe a league or sort of scene. Anyone in boca know about any other pinball besides Strikes or Vintage? Please let me know. I am hooked for life. Thanks anyone who answers.

    Hey dmill, you are right not a lot of pinball on location down here. However they are opening a pinball musuem in delay that will have 100 machines !!

    This weekend you can go to APE, also lots of us that play around here. PM me I'll give you my contact info maybe we can meet up at APE and you can meet some of the other local collectors.

    I lived in Boca for 10 years, but got into pinball after I left. Go to APE this weekend and dont look back. Talk to people. Tell your story and make some contacts.

    Go on the the website VillageBBS to find put about what is for sale and happenings in your area and all of FL. Set up an account for yourself. Great site for FL pinheads. Dont be shy pinheads are very friendly folks. Good luck!

    There's a neat place in Delray with 30+ Vintage EM's - next to a cigar store, I believe.
