Quoted from Saddath:

Others were right when they told me: "If you buy one, be careful, they tend to multiply"
After my ToM a year ago i got a BSD now at my home. I love the game so far. But oh man, it does kick my ass. Left ramp looks so easy to hit and I already lost count of the times i hit that f*** post
[quoted image][quoted image]

Those are two great pins! BSD will kick your ass over and over and can just really piss you off sometimes, but then you will have an amazing game and love it again.

Now you have two machines.....watch how quickly they start multiplying!

#11602 70 days ago

30 Million. Love that call out on BSD.

Yep, you have to keep them quarantined, or they will multiple, also do NOT sprinkle water on them. Best is to keep each in a separate room preferable one wrapped in plastic.

A few days late but picked up this Fish Tales last Saturday. The playfield was already taken apart when I picked it up but the guy had all the parts and plastics in a box and had bags of nuts and screws that were well labeled. Looking forward to putting this machine back together, hopefully I will be able to have it up and running by the end of the weekend, but we will see if any issues pop up . . .

Fish Tales is an easy game to shop and it looks like all the mechs are still intact. You should have no problem getting it back together in a couple of days honestly. Assuming all the parts are present and accounted for

4k walking dead with less than 3000 plays is worth the drive

Brought it home 18 days ago....brought it back in the home last night and reassembling after airbrushing/restenciling the cab. Of course, kept the original white patina. This game deserved to be revived a little.

Before and after...

It was one of those deals you hope doesn't fall through before. And one you hope was real in the first place. I had one picture and 400 miles lol

Only reason why I drove was it was at a tattoo parlor and I saw it in the background on Facebook after I got the address

Not a pin, but been looking for a project. Found it today. We all know there is more where this came from! 14 footer!

Now I need to find a bowler forum.

That’s one you don’t see every day. Had a chance to buy one a few years ago and didn’t grab it in time.

Glad to know I'm not the only one, Colson. I've missed out on 3, and it's killing me. The last one was a small auction in Frederick MD, and the auctioneer never called me for my bid, as he planned. Congrats, Pingball.

#11625 67 days ago

Finally got one I was looking for...(although it seems there is always one I am looking for)

Looks pretty decent. Good luck.
My first EM was a beater, so I didn't worry too much. You, you might want to be more careful

#11633 67 days ago

Didn’t really ”bring home” more a drop off this time, but still a new game to the lineup.
Feels like Christmas no matter how old you get.
The included 5/8 wrench was a nice touch.

[quoted image]

Only 300 made ..? How did that happen after all the time and money planning the thing. I don’t understand what Feedback they got back to quickly stop production so soon. Looks like a cool game. ESP in 80s. There were no internet trolls to bash it ten minutes after release..

#11636 66 days ago

You can never have too many projects... this one needs all the boards.

Thanks! Took a few years and more than a few bucks to pry it out of a buddy's collection. Plays really well and I think it is worthy of a good restore.

I’ve been looking for this game for years.. it has a lil play field wear, but overall I’m stoked!!

#11640 65 days ago

Jumped in the truck this morning with my 8 year old son to go buy some doughnuts for the family and stopped at a yard sale down the street from us on the way back (literally at the end of my street).
Bought some random stuff like a large carved wood swan for $10 and as we were leaving the lady running the sale notice I had an arcade related ball cap on.
She asked me if I liked games and then took me around to the shed and showed me this Ms. Pac-Man.
Wound up buying it off her for $600 and she proceeded to tell me how her father owned a bowling alley in Illinois back in the 80s.
She brought the game with her when she moved to Arizona 30 years ago.
Its a really nice all original survivor and is working (only thing it needed was a starter for the marquee light).
I asked if she had anything else and she says she has some pins in her property up north and will send me pics next time she's there.
She didn't know what titles or much about them, so I asked if they had score reels or digital display.
She said they had a digital display for the score like an alarm clock. Guess ill find out soon enough.
I assume they are going to be mid 80s solid states from around the same time period maybe?
The tax stickers on the Ms. Pack are from 1984 and 1985.

Careful, people may get upset it's not a pin. LOL

Looks beautiful! Much nicer than mine which I think was from the hood. Great story as well. Enjoy it!

It may result in a pin or two though (we will find out).
She says she's going to send me pics when she goes up north to her ranch.
Hopefully there is a part two to that post (crossing fingers).
