    So I know there’s a few Idaho pinball people out there. We all have little groups and subgroups we stay in touch with through other means. I thought I’d put it out here to see if anyone is interested in maintaining a small Idaho-based thread.

    #2 1 year ago

    Sure...I think its a great idea! Especially since there just aren't that many pinheads in the area so we have to stick together.

    And you can come to Utah when you really want to party!

    Count me in.

    Here’s my first actually worthwhile post. Anyone know of an avengers anywhere in the Boise area (on location or private collection?)

    #7 1 year ago

    And send the link to this thread to any pinheads you know locally. Let’s get a bigger group here.

    No avengers listed. That doesn’t mean there isn’t one somewhere there.

    Thanks for the help anyway! I’m hoping someone will pipe up. I want to play one as I have a friend asking about it (mostly based on theme)

    Oh...I bet its that one friend with the IM?

    #11 1 year ago

    Hahaha. Yeah. That guy.

    #12 1 year ago

    He just needs to get on Pinside and do his own dirty work.

    #13 1 year ago

    Yoo! I recently took over Woodland Empires pinball operation in Boise. I've lived here for a very long time and have been competing in pinball tournaments for over 3 years here. There is a private pinball clubhouse/museum called The Ugly Gold Couch. Those guys are very nice and open up the establishment at random times for public freeplay and/or tournaments. Id suggest getting on Facebook and looking up the "treasure valley pinball" page. Its a great hub that posts about most upcoming tournaments, leagues, even public and private gatherings that are all revolving around pinball. Here's a link

    https://m.facebook.com/TreasureValleyPinball

    You might be able to view it without a Facebook profile, not sure, but the events page is updated regularly. There's actually a pretty active and healthily growing pinball scene in boise. I think I've met some of you in the past or recently, and i hope to meet you all! Keep juggling the steel!

    Ps. There is an IFPA ranked tournament at Woodland Empire today(saturday) at 2pm.

    Looks like a fun lineup. I need to get over there and try jp2

    #16 9 months ago

    I love Idaho, but not many pins around. seems that all of the good action is on the east coast.
    Going to Las Vegas in November, should I go to the pinball museum?

    I always enjoy going to the PHOF when I'm in town, but the last few times I've gone the machines were in pretty rough shape.

    #19 9 months ago

    well, I will go and report back here with some pics. Need to save this thread.
    Btw, I am wanting to find a Doodlebug machine somewhat locally, keep an eye out for me please

    #20 9 months ago

    At least THIS future Ca. transplant will bring more pinball along as well!

    #21 9 months ago

    Shhhh, I moved from long beach 20 years ago. don't tell anyone though.

    Yes!! Being more pinball. Leave the rest of California there. We like to visit it, but don’t want to stay...

    JP2 is great. Really good flow. Still early code, but fun modes and lots going on already. Stuck balls are a possibility. I've had 2 ball gates break already on the raptor pen :/ waiting on a replacement again.

    PHOF is fun. They are relocating but not sure when. so if you get to see the new location be sure to post pictures. There are some cool and rare games there. Be sure to play the pinball circus, the 3 level pinball game with only 2 produced!

    There is a doodle bug in boise at the pinball clubhouse. It is not for sale. There are some great EM's in the collection over there.

    Are you in courdelane? I can't speak for northern idaho, but boise has a growing scene. Also the west coast has a great pinball scene. I think Washington has the most pinball tournaments of any state. Oregon and California also have tons of pinball events happening throughout the year! Part of my goal as a new operator in boise is to bring machines to the area that are not publicly available.
