Quoted from Isjack:

Speaking of Pinball Map and locations: we got four games back on route. St. Paul's Bark and the Bite -- a small BBQ restaurant with great brisket, hush puppies, and a full bar.
Their soft open is slated for tomorrow and their hours are currently pretty limited to start. Pop in and show them that more games would be a welcome addition to their establishment!
Right now the four games are Theatre of Magic, AFM, TWD Pro and Star Trek Pro. We will rotate games in and out of there as time goes on.
All games are $.50/play. Wash your hands after grubbing out and drop some quarters! If you notice anything broken don't hesitate to PM me.

I added it for you...

Free: I have an old Tektronix 2232 oscilloscope that was last used probably 4-5 years ago. Has been in storage for a while. Intermittent issues but worked for most basic stuff at the time. No guarantee for current status or if even working. Not calibrated at last use. Can’t upload pics to this forum, but if you’re interested drop me a DM or try this Dropbox link. Not interested in shipping but maybe can drop off in cities sometime?

Thats a buddy of mine... I can ask him. I thought he priced his games pretty competitive.

How about a solid IJ with new decals and incredible playfield; that’s on deck to be finished Tuesday?

Doesn’t Jason_Jehosaphat have one? Maybe hit him up; I could always extract it and deliver it your way if it’s still FS.

#16563 9 months ago

He had that premium but found a buyer. I had one for a week (I was just the mule in said transaction) but fell in love with it. Top 10 game for me now

Jason bought that from me. It now resides 15 miles east of me.

Attention competitive tournament players: I’m having a home tourney (complete with IFPA points and decent cash prizes) on Aug 28th at my house. I was initially full at 32 registrants, but had 3-4 cancellations when it came time to pay the entry fee so now I am opening it back up to fill the last few spots. It’s $45 to enter (due at time of registration)… Matchplay all day from 9am to approx 10pm with a lunch and dinner break… will be having game banks of 3 pins each attempting to mimic Pinburgh style rounds that I miss so much.

If you’re interested send me a PM and I’ll get you more detailed information and the link for registration. Games will be most of the ones in my collection, with a few borrowed EM’s and SS from a friend to help fill the banks.

#16572 9 months ago

anyone know of a Gilligans or Jetsons for sale or to play locally in the twin cities?

Thanks!

Will there be any Shasta or cold cuts?

#16574 9 months ago

Anyone want a set of pinstadiums for $75? You'll need to supply your own strip of magnets for the cabinet. Not really looking to ship, more of a local deal.

These are several years old I believe, but are working.

Edit: going to make an ad so I can donate to pinside if they sell..

#16577 9 months ago

Just a heads up. D1 in Stevens Point is having a tournament tomorrow 8-11-21 celebrating the release of our Wedge Head beer. Every legal player at the tournament will receive a can to take home and enjoy. No entry fee, coin drop only.

Going for my second year (first went 2019, didn't happen last year). Pretty good arcade selection, pinball was a bit lacking but still a good mix of 2-3 machines per era, but they're making an effort to get more people to bring in their games. I believe anyone who brings in a machine gets a free VIP ticket and entry into a private pinball tournament specific to people who bring in their machines. I'd love to bring one of mine, but don't have a car big enough.

Hard to compare to MGC as I haven't been there, but pinball isn't the main focus. The gaming hall was split pretty evenly across tabletop games, console/PC games, vendors, and arcade, with a row of about 10 or so pinball machines. I spent most of my weekend going between games of pinball and Pathfinder.

VIP ticket got me access to the roped off three hour VIP "party" area Friday night, which had all the pinball machines and a row of arcade machines in it as well as a set of battletech pods from Fallout Shelter Arcade in Minneapolis that were free to use through the event.

They had a tournament in 2019, Had maybe 10 people for a strike tournament. They gave out translites to everyone who entered (which reminds me, I still need to frame the Iron Maiden one I got). This year it's apparently an IFPA sanctioned event, and they're covering the entry fee. No idea on prizes, if any.

Here's the last pinball list I saw from their Discord server:

Virtual Multipin (hopefully not the same one that was in last time, super laggy and no one played it more than once)
PC Multimorphic modular
Metallica
F-14 Tomcat
Hotwheels
Led Zepplin
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Guns and Roses
Avengers: Infinity Quest
Mandalorian
Lethal Weapon 3
Jurassic Park
Houdini
Triple Action
High Hand

2DCon didn't seem enough like Midwest Gaming Classic for me to go. I already hit up Classic Gaming Fest less than a month ago, so I'm good for cons for awhile. 2DCon seemed to pull more from CONvergence(yuck) and not as much from Portland Retrogaming Expo. And I don't do downtown Minneapolis.

I brought a machine last year. Load in and out was challenging. After unloading, there is no where free to park and the larger trucks unloading 100s of monitors for all the gaming stations is parked there a long time. In my opinion, was not worth it.

You're not wrong. It's a convention with pinball, not a pinball convention. If you're going only intending to play pinball, you'll get bored before the day's over

I didn't even know about it until SevenEightyRacer told me. It isn't as big as MGC for sure, but it sounds like a similar style/theme. I want to say the push this year is more pinball, however as mgc, a lot of those are attendees bringing games. The more pins the merrier!

Quoted from ChrisPINk25:

Ah yeah, mgc's new location I heard could be annoynig depending on load in/out time. It is a factor when you bring or buy games

Quoted from BadgeringBadger:

You're not wrong. It's a convention with pinball, not a pinball convention. If you're going only intending to play pinball, you'll get bored before the day's over

They have to start somewhere, and hopefully it gets better and bigger for pinball each time. I know they want to do more pinball, but like MGC if attendees don't help and bring anything, it is hard to grow it.

Twin Cities Metro collectors:
Planning to go to Expo', anyone?
Also planning to do a little shopping/touring at Pinball Life?
If so, and if you have the room in your vehicle, I would pay you a fair sum to bring home a sheet of playfield glass.
Still need a sheet of widebody glass to finish my project.
Thanks.

I requested a large volume quote for pinball glass, so hopefully I can sell these close to cost at the old pinball warehouse prices.

#16590 9 months ago

If I go through with the buy, standard glass will be $35 and widebody glass will be $40

#16591 9 months ago

I spoke to Andy at Summit Glass and Mirror and his quote was $75, not $50.
Thanks though for the suggestion

#16594 9 months ago

Maybe its just me, but even at a $25 difference is it worth getting multiple people involved in a cross country road trip that you will reimburse them for - for one piece of playfield glass?
