    searchtempest.com is a great tool for locating bingo pinballs on Craigslist. It's basically a front-end replacement for CL's clunky interface, but its real power is allowing you to specify a distance from your zip code that you want to search. searchtempest will locate and search all CL boards within the specified distance. I've searched most of the USA in a single operation by setting the distance field to 3,000 miles. If you haven't tried this tool before, it's worth checking out. If you have a different favorite tool for searching CL, please post it.

    That's the one I use as well. Definitely useful to find specific titles you may be looking for as well as all the "pin ball" games. It's interesting the array of ways people say "bingo pinball".

    Searchtempest is probably the best web-based one. But honestly, if you arent searching CL with a smartphone app, you are shortchanging yourself. Far better searching, and automatic notfications make it a no brainer.
