Anybody else on here play in the Super Series at District 82 this weekend?
Damn. You ‘sconsin folks know how to do it up right.

Good chatting with you over the weekend, as well as getting the chance to compete on a few games with you!

Absolutely man… certainly hope to get over there again sometime and play with you turkeys. (Also will check out that P3 stream soon!)

Damn. You ‘sconsin folks know how to do it up right.

So I see District 82 has regular hours now on Fridays and Saturdays, do they do these tourny's after hours or are they closed to the public for these events? I've been thinking of checking it out one of these weekends, but I'm not really interested in competitive play.

#16956 38 days ago

Usually closed to the public if there is an event going on.

On Fridays and Saturdays, it’s open play but some of the people setup impromptu tournaments or sometime Erik will host a side tournament for people who want to participate. Definitely not required and kind of an introduction to how the competitive play works.

I would recommend going over. Always a lot of fun

Friday and Saturdays are open to the public free play nights for casual players and family's. He does a free knockout tournament on Friday night at 7 to introduce people to competitive play. All the leagues and tournament events are listed here and need to be signed up for in advance. https://district82.com/events/

I recently had a friend contact me about his nephew getting an EM game in the Fox Valley area (Neenah to be exact) and he needs help getting it running 100%. The claim is that it won't go to game over and continues to play the "last" ball over and over. After asking a few more questions, I came to find out that it had been stored for a number of years so I'm assuming that the "game over" issue isn't the only one it has. The game is a spin a card so I'm wondering who in the Neenah area can take a look at this game? If anyone does EM repairs in the area, let me know, and I can either give you the contact information or can provide yours to him. Thanks in advance for the assistance.

#16966 36 days ago

Hey guys,
I’m in a bit of a pickle, I just won the Flipper Football NOS playfield that’s totally crated from AuctionMasters in Coon Rapids.

It needs to be picked up TODAY apparently and I’ve already paid for it. Is there any saintly pinsider who can grab my beloved playfield and either hold onto it till I arrange shipping, or can bring it to a Fastenal or other shipping terminal?

You will obviously be paid for being a hero. PLEASE help me out here. I love my Flipper Football and I’m going to have this playfield Clearcoated and totally done up for my game.

PM me if you’re the total badass who can help me.

#16967 36 days ago

Unfortunately, I can't help you as I'm too far away but is there a time frame within which this needs to be picked up? What happens if it doesn't get picked up? I'm very hopeful that someone in the area has contacted you already and is helping you out but if not, it would be good to know how much time someone would have to go get it and whether or not picking it up tomorrow might be an option.

I'm sure you'll find someone to help you out.

#16973 36 days ago

Since we are asking favors....

Is anyone in the Cities (bonus points near Woodbury) going to Pinball Expo? I doubt I'll need it, but if I happen to win this raffle, I'd need someone to bring this sign back for me:
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/help-the-children-and-win-a-new-stern/page/83#post-6556680

I think it looks awesome and while I have no idea where I'd put it, I'll cross that road on the off chance I win the drawing

And if you aren't familiar with Project Pinball, it's an awesome charity that puts pinball machines in Children's Hospitals. Throw some money at their raffles or to buy some swag to help them out. You can also select them as your Smile.amazon.com charity so they get some money just from your shopping.

Thanks in advance!

Glad you found help. We discissed this playfield last night and were pretty sure it wasn't NOS. Are you sure it is?

Upon closer inspection, it appears to have a very minor wear spot, so it must be used. Confused why it’s in a crate like that. Looks totally original. Wondering if they bought a NOS, replaced the used one in the crate and routed the game with the new playfield.

We’ll see what secrets the crate holds when it comes in

Chris,
I'd help you out for sure if I was going to Pinball Expo since I still owe you a favor
but i'm not. If I change my mind and go, i'll certainly bring it back for you if you win it

I also got a piece from this auction without knowing it needed to be picked up the next day. Would be nice if they posted it some where, maybe they did but I didn’t find it, when it needs to be picked up. I got lucky in that my sister-in-law lives about 2 miles away and was able to help. I’m on the way there now. I think there was a phone number on the website so next time i know to call and find out first.
Good to hear you were able to get it figured out.

Question for the MN/WI/Midwest pinheads.. Who do you go to for parts? I'd like to rebuild the flippers and replace the shooter assembly on this Gilligan's and the market has changed greatly since I was last paying attention 5 yrs ago.

Thanks!

Does TILT in Mpls have a Godzilla?

#16986 35 days ago
Quoted from joetechbob:

They buried it pretty deeply. Less than 24 hours to pick up your crap and vacate after the auction ends is pretty trashy. You should be extremely clear when you give your bidders such a short timeframe. Not just hiding it in some paragraphs hoping most suckers pay and don’t pick up so you can resell and make a buck

It took me over a half hour to find it while I was bidding on stuff

#16988 35 days ago

Anyone know of any Godzilla or Halloweens on site in Milwaukee. I checked pinmaps and only saw one godzilla in a trampoline park (hoping to avoid that).

Took me about 30 seconds to find it. Its common sense to find the auction fees and pick up window before bidding in a virtual auction. The machines for this auction are dropped off in advance and have been sitting there for two weeks - I'm sure they want them out asap so they can move on to other auctions/things.

Quoted from Grangeomatic:

Appreciate it!

#16993 35 days ago

Both games are at Cleveland.

On Halloween the ball always (usually) gets stuck on the upper playfield alley leading from the flipper to the hole. Haven't figured out how to get it unstuck without tilting.

Really?? I was there last night. I was drinking and could of swear that I only saw Halloween? I wouldn't go back for Halloween but godzilla I will.

#16995 35 days ago

Garcade has Godzilla too.

#16996 35 days ago

Not sure if there are any others in the area, but we just put a godzilla pro in at Rev's bowl bar in Oshkosh, WI.

Anyone around Madison know if Maria's bar is still open? Found it when I drove through in 2019, but I thought it was closed permanently. They had a nice collection of older pinball machines and I'd love to stop in again when I'm around this week.
