    I'm visiting family in San Jose this weekend, is there any place to play the newer Pins around here? i.e. WOZ, ST, ACDC, etc?

    Lots of good options and if you want a pinball hoodie designed like your avatar Free Gold Watch has them!

    Pizza Depot has some good games and pizza/beer. I don't know what their current line up is, but I try to make it there once a year.

    I am sure they could print one for you but a one off might be a bit expensive

    Use the map, man The Op for Pizza Depot is a pinsider too so support him and play there. And buy a coke, beer or slice and let them know you went b/c of the pins

    Thanks guys. Not all the games at PD are mine, but I'll take credit/ blame for 3 of them. No OZ in the south bay (yet), but there's a ST pro at the theaters at Oakridge mall in south SJ (no movie ticket required) and an AC/DC pro at the SJ Rock Shop on north 3rd street downtown (also my location). I should be at all three of these locations later today either cleaning or playing. If you see a dude in jeans and a Metallica t shirt, say hi and I'll give you some credits and the lowdown on the games.

    I bought my Taxi from Mike, stand up guy and his games are the best on location - always playing great! Go play his games!

    Pizza depot is great.

    Had a ton of fun on WOZ at free gold watch yesterday.

    Jealous of you folks - I explored the town I'm in visiting my parents looking for pins that I remember playing as a kid (Taxi, Fire!) and can't find any at the logical places. Feeling like there may literally be ZERO pins on location here in Auburn, AL

    I'm gonna try and hit PD tomorrow. I hit the great mall in milpitas but it was a bust, no pins even in busters. I did find a spiderman at the century theater but the flippers were weak. they also had an ironman but it was out of order. I may hit golfland latter and see what they have. Thanks for the tips.

    Last time I was at Golfland all they had were POTC and The Simpsons. The Simpsons was out of order.

    Well, the Simpson's is still out of order... Also, the POTC was barley functional and most of the ship was missing....
    I never made it out to the other locations, I'm pretty bummed about that. O-well, maybe next time.

    Is the Xenon at Pizza Depot yours? It's spectacular!! Played it a bunch last night, it's super clean and playing great.

    No. That game belongs to Rick Stetta. It is fun. It had a broken rubber and bent post Thursday night, but Rick's guy should fix that soon. Glad you enjoyed it.

    Just was at Pizza Depot to play pinball during my shoot break here in San Jose. All the machines seemed to work fine although I just played like ten games on Dracula and sucked ass! Mike is it set up hard or am I just playing like crap

    I did get one replay from a match at least. Had the cheesy garlic bread which was yum! Off to Rock Shop before I have to resume shooting tonight!

    Yeah Gene, it is kinda hard. It's at about 6.8 degrees. However, it does have upgraded flipper coils and the right outlane (post) is half closed. I've cracked 1B on it in league (no EB's) and Tim has the league record at 1.5B. Once you get the ramp shots down, a big game is inevitable. For a player of your caliber anyway. Try to make it to another league night there and you'll see someone light it up, if not do it yourself. Thanks for the quarters.
