Got my 3rd older game today. Starting to really like this era of pins.

Great pick up Ash! Strikes & Spares is one of my favourite older machines and that's not just because of the backglass although I see she has some interesting body art on yours

She should have moisturised a bit more in the 80s.

I have to give this one another shot, the only example I have had to play was boring.

Its fun. Granted I just got it, but it keeps pulling you back in. The ramps are incredibly satisfying and a good amount to do on the upper playfield.

There's really nothing on the main playfield to do besides trying to get it back up to the upper playfield. Extremely hard multiball to achieve and I think one of the hardest/difficult games I've ever played which draws me back to play better. For me, the best thing a pinball can do is make you want to hit that start game button again and again

Brought home this beauty from awesome pinsider #sbmania. On the way back home I picked up a colordmd for it from another awesome pinsider #Butch2099. Both are super friendly, very welcoming, and extremely helpful. They are truly two of the "good guys" in our great hobby. Thanks very much to you both. Long day (7+ hour round trip) but a great day indeed.

If you’re interested in the complex rules of Elektra, check out the owners club thread, I provided a detailed rules sheet. It’s way more complicated (in a good way) than most people realize.

I will definitely check it out. Thanks. Reminds me a lot of Electra in regards to multi all difficulty. I will dig into this.

Yeah I’m really finding myself moving away from my newer Stern’s and Bally Williams games, and really going overboard on EM’s and these pre-wars which are really cool.

Just scored a real uncommon dream! This was only 25 minutes away in an Orthodontist office where it’s lived for 8+ years. Never been serviced except for last year when some “tech” “fixed” the issues and by that I mean jacked up the flippers and shorted a bunch of switches.

Still, the price was bonkers, cheaper than most Facebook EMs this will never happen again!image.jpg4AE29260-CAF0-4182-886D-D43353BA699B.jpeg2330249B-E65B-4AD0-B098-C788BE63A16F.jpeg1FDB869B-E8C0-46A3-845D-33D3C15D8FB7.jpeg

The audits are hilarious. Game has 80 thousand plays. But that Ball Search number is insane!!! Looks like nobody ever had a chance to put a real game on it!

Unfortunately their “tech” was a real piece of work. He removed the EOS switches on the flippers and you can see the coils cooked. The game needs some love.
So far it’s cleaned up really really nicely! The huge wear trail is sad, but maybe someone can help me make a water slide to cover it.

What a trip!

Traveled through 15 states...a total of 3450 miles in 6 days. Picked up a Gottlieb Target Pool, Gottlieb Team One, and a Bally Pools Sharks. All fit in my Honda Odyssey. Was able to check out Helicon Brewery in Oakdale, PA. A great place with great people. Spoke to Chris, the owner of the brewery...he is a great guy and I enjoyed talking to him. Also hit up The Roanoke Pinball Museum on the way home. Another great place to play and the place was in good attendance early on a Sunday afternoon.

A big thank you to chuckwurt and Colsond3. Was great to finally meet them both! They were very accommodating and let my buddy and I stay and chat/play. Hope to see you guys again sometime in the future.

Team One is a fun game. If you want a real challenge, keep it on three ball to start. There’s four lanes on top, so you need to get it back up there one way or another.

That may be something to look into later down the road. I played a couple games as set up, with add a ball...I was able to max out the Wows (5) on ball 3. I did just switch to novelty, so I'm hoping for some monster scores on it now

Solid platform that has been bulletproofed, easy to grasp rules and family friendly theme.

As I told my wife, supersonic has to have the least provocative Bally artwork made in this time frame. Usually there is tits everywhere! She was not amused as I was.

I'm trying to work a deal on a game out of state and arranging to have it picked up and shipped via freight/transport company from Texas to California. Who's the best freight company to arrange this with and does anyone have any leads I can contact immediately to arrange for curbside pickup and shipping with legs on? Not looking to have the game palletized or crated, just wrapped and padded with blankets and shipped on the legs. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Jeremy

Michelle at STI (or wherever she is at). I had a pin shipped in from New York with legs on. The movers carried it up my 2 porch steps and into the house and unwrapped it and we all looked it over for damage of which there was none.
