St. Paul Tap games availability update!

I wanted to pass on information on new game availability hours at St. Paul Tap now that the new governor's order has taken affect. The games there can only be available for play if the occupancy is 25% or less. At St. Paul Tap, with their maximum occupancy, this works out to be around 60 people or less. Most of the time during the day and the week, they do not hit this number, but this means that during normal busy times (Friday / Saturday nights), they will be not available. Below is a tentative game availability schedule if you are looking to get some games in, in the near future.

Game Hours:
Sunday - 11am-10pm
Monday-Tuesday - 3pm-10pm
Wednesday-Thursday - 11am-10pm
Friday - 11am-6pm
Saturday - 11am-Noon

At the moment I am struggling to connect with it to be honest and I'm looking for pins my family is more interested in. I've funneled a lot in and out over the course of this year finding what sticks. This may end up being a game I circle back to....like Maiden

I had a hard time getting into my AIQ pro, ended up sending it down the road after a week.

I LOVE my TWD Pro. Never played a premium though.

#15110 69 days ago

Big fan of pro v premium on the title. Crossbow toy ruins the flow along w the lifting ramp. That being said, mine is not currently for sale.

I owned the Pro for a few years and upgraded to the Premium. The flow isn't as good on the Premium as you said, but everything else is far superior. The game itself is a ball buster on so many levels. There is plenty of flow on the game other than the ramp. The crossbow is a nice chance to slow things down...like your breathing.

Quoted from cavalier88z24:

You know when you hear about locations and barcades closing up due to the pandemic, its refreshing to post about a NEW location that just opened up. Im taking about Nerd Haven Arcade in Madison Wisconsin.
It's a new location that just opened up a few weeks ago im told. One of my pinball buddy went out Friday night and was so impressed, that he made me come back with him Saturday night. I had great experience there Saturday night. It's extremely rare for me to drive a hour to just play pinball. But it was worth it. Current game list:
MM royal edition
Attack from Mars special edition
Rick and Morty bloodsucker
TnA
Jurassic park premium
Munsters premium
Simpsons pinball party
Creature from the black lagoon
Threatre of magic
Addams family
Jungle lord
Spiderman (gottlieb)
Freedom (EM)

So here's the deal when you walk in. All pinball is on tokens and pay to play. The video games are on free play. You can walk in pay a 15 dollars for a day pass per person. Play as many video games as you want and they give 5 dollars in tokens for pinball for that 15 dollars. Or just play pinball pay as you go. Most of the bally williams and modern games are 75 cents or 3 tokens. A few are a buck a play. Early solid state and EM are 25 cents.
The video games were very nice titles. Not some one off rare games that nobody knows how to play. Just about 100 of the TRUE classic arcade games to play. Your sit down driver games, 1943, smash TV, mortal kombat, metal slug, ect. All video games work, none broken, all the marquees light up, screens crisp and clear. Buttons and joy sticks that fuction.
All the games play nice and when there was a issue with something the guys behind the counter were on top of it. Sure a couple games could of used a shop job or update the lighting. But for the most part all the games play pretty nice. Also its nice and pretty much right off the interstate. Less then 10 mintues into Madison. I never want to go that far in. Easy in and out and your on the freeway heading home.. Mask required at all times. I encourage people to check it out and support location pinball. I will be back again for sure.

Cool to see a new location, sucks that you have to pay additional to play pinball, probably a pass for me.

We’ll have to head down and have a look see. Looks great online. Im all for new arcades, but im starting to get concerned that there may be, dare i even say it, too many(?!) in a tight area??? How many is too many then in madison? If everything was on coin drop then one could hit all the arcades and only play what one wants, but when ya gotta pay a entry fee it commits one to one location a day. (For the ave guy)

#15118 69 days ago

Got a decent SW trilogy. Just need to rebuild the drops. Playfield and cab look great except for some flipper wear on cab.
No LEDs, but would throw it out there for sale or trade. X-wing Cannon, X-wing fighter, and all diverters work great. Cannon LEDs are solid. Nice build quality overall.
This title was never on my radar, until I serviced a few and kind of dig them now. If any interest, PM me.

#15119 69 days ago

never had a bingo before. Got this one in, was going to get it going. Realized it's never going to happen. So passing it off to someone else. Comes with 2 backglasses, and the ball feeder motor works, and the ball reset motor works. That's as far as I got.

Quoted from Pinball_Basement:

You are so right about that. It’s an ass kicker for sure, but flows extremely well. It’s the magic at LTG:)s

Quoted from Pinball_Basement:

Honestly this is a thing. I was not a huge fan of TWD for a while and the only reason I got into wanting a TWD was because I played LTGs. Also his place is the sole reason I bought and owned a Hobbit.

Quoted from brobra:

For the longest time I just assumed the phantom flip on MB wasn’t a huge deal on that game. Turns out LTGs was the only one I’ve played to this date that worked like 90+ percent of the time. Everyone else it’s a coin toss each flip at best.

If Barkz bites, I’ll meet, or if anyone does for that matter. If you need my cell PM me, as I’m terrible at texting and driving or Miri-tasking in general.

Also, I’ll trade the trilogy for a nice enclosed trailer.

Appreciate it, but primarily looking for used - I should have specified. If anyone has those used shoot me a message we can make this short and sweet and you can buy something nice before winter starts to hurt.

Quoted from mr9865:

Just a clarification - the pinball machines are on token play, so if you only want to play pinball, it is only the cost of tokens.

The video arcade games are a flat $15 pass that includes $5 worth of tokens for playing pinball as well.

His place is the reason I bought my JJPOTC.

Also, I'm willing to fight anyone for the right to buy that machine if he ever sells it.

Actually mine too. Played it there and fell in love with day 1. Besides Lloyd's game and mine, I think I only have played a couple games in total on other JJP POTC machines (couple games at Tilt and in a private gameroom) and that's it.

Nearest Location for GNRSE, Anyone?

Just wondering where the nearest Guns n Roses Standard Edition is routed here in MN. I see references in this thread to Standards going on locations in WI, but nothing in MN. Am I mistaken? Pinball Map isn't very helpful as it lists Tilt Pinball Bar as a site of a Standard Edition, when Tilt has an LE, etc. Is there a better pinball-locator website I should try instead?

#15138 68 days ago

Don’t hold me to it but I’m not sure any SE’s have even shipped. Why not go play the LE at Tilt or S&S?

#15139 68 days ago
Quoted from Krupps4:

Don’t hold me to it but I’m not sure any SE’s have even shipped. Why not go play the LE at Tilt or S&S?

I do recall some reports in this very thread about SE's landing on location in places in WI - one in Watertown, I believe. That location is five hours from me. I was hoping there might be one routed in, say, Hudson, WI.
I'm lucky to have the LE close by at Tilt, sure, but my hope was to try the SE as it's the only version I could possibly afford if I were to buy this title.

#15140 68 days ago
Quoted from Jason_Jehosaphat:

Based on the number orders JJP is rumored to have received, you have a lot of time to decide. They are many many months out with the orders they currently have.

#15141 68 days ago

There is a GNRSE on location at The Pinball Room in Sioux Falls.

Pinball Map will show all versions of a game if you search for any version (Pro, Premium, LE) of a game. If you go into the individual locations it will tell you which version that location has specifically.

There are no GNRSEs in the Twin Cities. 3 LEs. Tilt, St. Paul Tap and SS Billiards.

I thought the market was totally saturated. If you consider pulling one, let me know.

#15146 68 days ago

I'm actually heading to Sioux Falls all of next week for an extended stay. Turns out I'm staying about a mile from the Pinball Room, will definitely check that place out!

why would you want 2 of the same game? they are pretty much copies of each other. You want diversity in a collection, not the same crap over and over.
