Welcome to pinside!
Sorry to get you hooked, but it's a great addiction.
FT and JM are great games at a fair price.
Hopefully some pinsiders in your area can get you a fix.

Welcome to the addiction from a pinhead over in Fremont, NE.

Some good games on that list ( well, hmmmm, South Park? )
Good luck with the searching - that's half the fun.

Pinball Pro is in Oakland, NE and has Ghostbusters in stock. you could probably pick it up and save on shipping.
have fun.

Thanks Joel, yes right here in Nebraska, new Stern and a Chicago Gaming games available!

We do have a Stern Star Trek as well, depending which Star Trek you had in mind.

Hey Fellow Nebraskan. There are Leagues in Lincoln and Omaha. Plenty of collectors and Pin guys around. Sorry if you just started your addiction. When you start it is hard to stop!

joelreeves good to meet a fellow NE pinball fan! Thanks for the info, it's what I need to get going. I'll have to check out Pinball Pro, and if you have been to http://www.pinballpast.com/shop/ in Omaha let me know if it's worth a stop.

Ever since I played in the onemoresean game room, I got da feva and the only cure is more pinball

Pinball Past is pretty cool. Mostly older games, but I think he can get new Sterns also. Fun to go in and talk pinball with Mike on occasion.

Justin at Midwest Gameroom Connection is a good person to know in the hobby as well. He may be able to help you track down several of the games on the list. Great guy as well.

I think everybody has a current ad on Omaha craigslist if you do a search for pinball.


looks to be a nice Fish Tales in Omaha at the moment. Maybe a bit on the higher side of pricing, though.

ovfdfireman is a great guy and very helpful. Just picked up a Ghostbusters Pro from him about a month ago, and couldn't be happier. By far the most fun and challenging pin I have ever played.

#14 3 years ago

I just bought a Medieval Madness Remake from pinball pro and have a Metallica coming from him as well. Also bought a few games from pinball past. I have a route up here in South Dakota and am usually buying and selling monthly.

I don't have anything on your list that I want to sell now but I do have a Taxi for sale!

Welcome to pinside and enjoy the hobby! It gets expensive but totally worth it!

I'm still looking for a couple games in the central Nebraska area but I am willing to drive a few hours to pick up or meet. I am hoping to find
-fish tales
Anyone with leads on these or other machines in this price range would be much appreciated.

I got my first pinball machine from a pinsider in Kansas recently and I love it! World Poker tour has been a great first game with deep rules and really cool mods.

There has got to be a game in NE that would be a perfect addition to this collection. I am still looking to buy these or any 1980+ machines

-Elvira and the party monsters
-probably any other Steve Ritchie title

#18 3 years ago

Congrats Pauly! WPT is an under rated ( and undervalued - for now ) game and a lot of fun to play.
Deep rules that i still haven't quite figured out after playing one on several occasions. Great first pin.

Good list of future games there as well. Taxi is a keeper for me, and I'd definitely like to find a WW, T2, and Elvira at some point.

Good luck with the hunt!

#19 3 years ago

Great job Paul. Glad you finally found a machine. WPT Is a very challenging game.

#20 3 years ago

Thanks ronlisa joelreeves it's has been great and yes, challenging. I'm hooked!!
Would really like a NASCAR ww or Elvira. Keep in touch if you see anything.

#21 3 years ago

I have a taxi! I got everything that wasn't working fixed! I'll be coming that way next weekend! Let me know if you want me load it up and bring it down.
