McCormick Place in Chicago just announced that the 2020 IMT show has been cancelled. It was the largest show planned for the year there.

The Global Gaming Expo has been sending out questionnaires eluding to a "virtual" show this year.....

Does it cost more or less than Fatpanda's entire Alien Poker?

#14312 1 year ago
Quoted from epthegeek:

I considered buying the pf that PhatJay is selling, but decided to go without it first to see if it would be a long term keeper. It would have teamed up very well with my game as the backglass is pretty good but the cabinet is really good. When I inquired, it was less. For the right person that has space for it and would keep it long term, it would be worth it imo.

I see that UpDown is opening tomorrow, any word on Tilt coming back?

~Re-Opening Announcement~

We are so excited to announce that we will re-open on Monday, June 15 at 4pm.

With all that has gone on lately, we hope to bring a little joy to your life by opening our doors in the city we love so much.
Please look for information to follow on discounts/specials for bringing in a non-perishable item we will donate to the Whittier Alliance and Whittier School plus Pimento on behalf of Tilt and its customers to help fight racial injustices and support our community.

As we ease back in to opening, things will be a tad different.
Our hours will be:
Monday - Friday 4pm - Midnight
Saturday and Sunday 11am - Midnight

We will have a designated space to order food from at the bar with a reduced number of stools to sit on in order to allow for social distancing.
We will be taking "reservations" on a first-come, first-served basis, at the door, with a capacity for no more than 40 people inside at a time. (Please note we will not be taking reservations over the phone, via email, social media or other ways.)
Upon arrival, you will be asked to sign into the reservation book.
All employees will wear a mask. We are strongly encouraging guests to do the same. We will have them available for sale if you would like one to purchase.
In an effort to provide enough space for guests, we will have every other game on, alternating each day.

Please note we do not intend for these to be permanent measures and ask that you bear with us as we navigate these uncharted territories.

We look forward to seeing you again.

Gosh, I'm surprised to hear of a return for Up-Down already.
That whole intersection has been a ghost town.

I don't believe so but he used the term we like he was announcing something. Plus the proceeds are going to whitter school which happens to be the low income middle school in Sioux falls

#14322 1 year ago

81 just opened in Sioux Falls, it’s more Arcades than pinball but great location with food in downtown. I would recommend checking it out for sure.

Edit: it does have 4 pins which include a Deadpool and Ghostbusters.

Stopped at SS Billiards today in Hopkins, MN, to wish LTG a happy restart. Place looked great. Lloyd has been busy! Lots of gleaming, freshly shopped games and new lighting over the pool tables. It looks like a million bucks in there! Also a brand-new ice cream shoppe just next door serving some actually good/creamy ice cream and pastries. That strip mall is polishing up nicely - the new pride of Hopkins, maybe.

#14325 1 year ago

Two for one pinball deal. I have two Skylab pinballs.

One is cleaned up and working, but has minor scoring issue (bonus doesn’t count properly) and balls to play (counts up to 6 not 5 at start up). Play field is real nice. Bg has some flaking. Cab is decent.

The second one is rougher and has more issues. Once a game is started, flippers and most switches work. Score reels work. Trough switch and bracket not hooked up some cut wires right there too. Play field is rougher, touch ups planking, cupped inserts. Bg is flaking and faded. Cab is ok.

I have pics. Located by Milwaukee.
$1100 for the pair.

You were able to play some games? When I stop in, he starts talking pinball and I don't get to play any of his games...

That's something isnt it? Usually a business owner wants you to spend money while you're there. Lloyd? He's more worried about making sure you're having a good time and shooting the shit. A real treasure in this hobby, for sure.

#14330 1 year ago

Yeah he makes more money on grumpy days
Few and far between.

I'd rather pay attention to my customers.

The company I work for has a junkyard they would probably sell, if you want to overpay for a game that's been on the route for 20+ years.

I’m looking for a women’s mountain bike . Trek Marlin 5 women’s is a perfect example of what I am looking for . This bike new is $550 , I am looking for something comparable that is used and a few years old for around $250 . Must haves are aluminum lightweight frame , suspension fork and disc brakes . I know this is a long shot and before anyone says “why not just by the bike new ?” Yeah that’s what I’d like to do but my wife doesn’t want to spend that much ,so I am going to try and stay within the price range she wants to pay . And to make this all pinball related I will offer a trade of me clear coating a playfield or playfields in exchange for the right bike . Or some of my custom painted pingulps in exchange .

Anybody here score the Jurrasic Park from Prior Lake that was posted on CL yesterday? Really wanted that one and in my backyard!

#14347 1 year ago

Mostly just Dan waxing about how he used to be really good at it and named some of the games he used to play, and that the new games are like driving a Bently or Maseratti.
Some people emailed in about locations etc.
I guess I only caught the end of the discussion as I hopped in my work truck.

Went into Tilt this afternoon when they opened, things seemed to be going well. Had about 10 people in at the time, there was plenty of room for everyone. Not sure how many people they're letting in at once, and half the machines are on but they'll switch on/off machines as requested.

#14350 1 year ago

With respect to Tilt, I believe their max capacity for now is 40 people.
