Anybody know anything about the Stern Big Game for sale on CL in Blaine?
No pics of lower playfield unfortunately.
Any info on the seller?
Curious that's all.
Thanks.

Quoted from Parzival:

Anyone have a nice Who Dunnit for sale?

There is one at Blainbrook Bowling in Blaine that's for sale. I will talk to the owner tonight and see what his selling price. It's in nice shape.

I'd be interested too. I played the one at Blainebrook a few months ago. My first Who Dunnit experience and thought it was a really fun, original feel to a game.

Super fun game for single player action. With the roulette bet in the scoring other players can get mighty upset if you hit it big, probably why you never see Who Dunnit in tournaments.

If you set it to tournament mode, roulette alternates from losing to winning no matter what, you just have to keep track of it. My first game ever was a Who Dunnit. It's fun and different. Scoring can get way out of control and there are some things that could be fleshed out code wise, but I liked the theme and direction it was going.

Wanted: Stern or Bally/Williams Pin

Hi again.

At the risk of being a pest, I'm posting (again) that I'm hoping to find a nice pin here in the region.

I'm coming off a dispiriting experience buying a pin from a distant seller ($1K loss when the dust had settled), so I'm focused on finding something in the area that I can drive to and actually inspect first-hand, etc.

I would like to find a routed Stern title for c. $4K, such as IM, MET, or TWD. I can go as high as $4.2K for the right pin. Spending more than that on a Stern makes less sense when NIB from Stern, delivered, costs just $1K more.

With all due respect, I am *not* looking for anything but Stern or Bally/Williams, and I'm *not* looking for titles older than '93.

If you have a pin for sale or if you have any contacts who might have one for sale in my price range, any/all leads would be *much* appreciated! And yes, I have looked carefully - today and almost every day - for offerings on Craigslist. If there are titles there now that meet my criteria, they happen to be pins that either (a) I'm not interested in or (b) have what I perceive to be a low resale value and thus are better to avoid, etc.

Thanks for reading my post.

Many pins that fit your criteria can be found regionally on Craigslist. A simple 3 minute search brought these up:

Search craigslist for pinball, or arcade. Lots of them this time of the year. You might check with Al at Action Pinball Warehouse in Fridley too.

I have a 2 player Ms Pacman cocktail. I would be interested in trading it in for something... Possibly towards a used PacMan Battle Royal if the price is right.

Are you (or is he) looking for any one specific game? I have a 2player Crazy Climber Cocktail table for sale. Haven't listed on Craigslist yet.
Brand new controllers on it. https://www.arcade-museum.com/game_detail.php?game_id=7426

#10467 2 years ago

Roll call time.... any of you here one of the "6 offers"? I told the guy no thanks, but to reach out if still available. I'll be curious what the Craig's List bidding brings this up to.

Dibs. Already setup a time to pick it up.

#10469 2 years ago

Anyone in the Twin Cities have a recommendation for who to call to clean a pinball machine?
I recently got one on CL, and it could use cleaning and new rubbers and such.
Thanks in advanced.

Farmington? I would ask pinghetto since lives in the same city and has worked on games for years.

Just helped my buddy pick up a free Joker Poker, abandoned in a St. Paul curling club. They wanted it gone and he wanted a project.

I think you should forget about routed and focus on HUO considering your luck. For 4300-4800 you could pick up any of these titles HUO within the TC if you are willing to wait a couple of months. Anyone know what NIB Sterns are typically going for these days?

#10480 2 years ago

I think nib pros are ~6k? Maybe just under....

#10481 2 years ago

Reminder : Today is the day! WI TNA Launch party

When I was looking for a NIB MET Pro, I was quoted $5100, shipped. (ended up with MET Premium instead).

Just recently right? I was thinking they were low to mid $5k but with the prices people are asking for a pro I kinda forgot!

The guy came through! Well.. I know he tried to sell it out from under me multiple times before our agreed pickup time. So thank you to pinsiders that have more integrity than this guy.

This will be the ultimate Christmas present for my future wife. Her favorite movie(s) of all time. Heck even the dog’s name (my avatar) is Dr. Emmett Brown...

#10490 2 years ago

He had emailed me again the next day and said he had 2 offers for $2000 and was I sure I didn’t want to offer more. Congrats on the score. This is the only game I regret selling.

CanCan Wonderland events aren't happening anymore. They had to pull most of the games. Tilt is a great option. There will be a Guardians of the Galaxy Launch Party in conjunction with the normal event. Have fun for me, I will be celebrating Christmas early with my extended family.

A disagreement about how to proceed between the game owners and building owners I believe. Some games are left, just most are gone.
