Thanks NEO, played this a few years after graduating high school in the local bowling alley back in the day, they had SoF and WW right next to each other. Haven't seen a SoF after that, ever, until now!

I'm digging my collection right now, good variety I think. HS2 for good speed and excitement, JP for good shots/rules, SoF for pure shots and old school fun, and PF for letting non-pinheads have a shot at winning a game.

#1304 8 years ago
Quoted from AkumaZeto:

A friend of mine, who wanted to learn how to take playfields apart and put them back together. Since He has it apart, I decided to do a quick restore on the playfields, since it's something I've always wanted to do on this game. Couldn't spend to much time on it, but mine didn't need many touchups. 3 days and it was done, ready for reassembly.

Quoted from Whysnow:

What is next on your wishlist? We can keep an eye out for you.

I think Flash Gordon moved to the #1 slot and I have never played it, just seen the tutorial online! I would like to do the Monster/Scary Theme also if I had the $$$ and space. But do not look for me at this time just let me enjoy this one, and I mean one right now!

Hey guys
Any of you up in Minnesota know of this company?
I'm thinking about putting new speakers in my Sorcerer since mine is original and starting to wear out. It looks like he sells a replacement for the 4x10 backbox speaker with the correct ohms.

I was told I'm obsessed because I was playing before work at 6am. In my defense though I was waiting for my work clothes to dry.

LEDS arrive today!

Bump for the best thread on Pinside. What's new guys? Anyone got new games coming/going? Any events coming up?

It sounds like I'll be selling my longtime (for me) Starship Troopers and using the funds toward getting my old Lost World Jurassic Park back. I'm sure many people would say they are a couple of stinkers, but they are two great games in my opinion!

#1326 8 years ago

My party was a huge success this year, though I don't think a single Pinsider showed up. Oh well, the pins got plenty of play anyway.

I have a really nice LW3 playfield sitting around if you are interested. I won't ship it though as it will cost $40 just to ship it.
