Definitely the most interesting and rarest i've ever managed to acquire and ive got it working (sort of). Special thanks to Forceflow for this one.

Sure has nice play field colors. Very cool looking

Quoted from FalconDriver:

Monopoly in the house. Such a fun game. I picked up a while ago and put in some
additions. I added side decals which look great on this game and tie in well.
Also ColorDMD, leds, new cards, rails, legs, bar, and a simple two piece topper! The ColorDMD
was well worth it for this title imo.
Finally got it in place. Its time to own it all!

The monopoly money pinblades look sweet! Color dmd is definitely nice touch on that game.

My grail TZ is finally here

Congrats man! So when's the TZ house warming get together?

Quoted from nightsearcher:

Congratulations on your FT and FH Jay. I know you've been wanting one forever

Wife was not happy when I backed up last night with 3 games. Lol. If she gets her way, funhouse will be getting listed soon. I figure I got a couple months at least before that happens. Maybe I'll bring it to yegpin in May and sell it afterwards.

Big shout out to Jesperpark for picking up my first Data East pin for me
Now how come when I pick up games they're in basements with skinny stairwells and tight corners?

Quoted from Spencer:

Bought this last weekend for $200. It doesn't work but I don't care because I was planning on cutting it in half and using it as a one of a kind wall hanging art.

Did you find that at a auction or local classifieds? Sweet score Spencer! What are you going to do with the back half?

#5351 2 years ago

That back piece is pretty sweet. I'd try and save it, post it on kijiji and someone would buy it! People pay for unique and one of a kind

Quoted from dgpinball:

Went about as Old School as you can get, a 1948 Gottlieb Jack N Jill, bought at the Vancouver Flipout! The more woodrails I see, the more I want!!

Now it makes sense why the BC market is dry for pins. They're all in dgpinball's collection

#6855 2 years ago

That's freaking awesome!! Always wanted my own alley. My parents looked at buying a house in the early 80s with 2 lanes in a similar setup. I was like 5 or 6 but remember my mom and the realator smoking heaters at the bar while I granny rolled a few balls down the lane.
Damn! Why didn't we buy that house?

Oh Man, I'd love a Sea Witch!! That game looks so smooth and fast!! Never seen one in real life! Great score!!

You got to make it to Saskatoon Dave. Smokedog has one at Pokey's. Still haven't played it either. Last time I was there, 2 guys were hogging it.

Oh, I didn't know he had one. Hmmm, I do need to go east one of these days!! Thanks for the heads up Jay.

Quoted from Pinhead306:

Nice pick up man. Game looks cool.

Thanks man. Should clean up nice. Forgot to thank jesperpark for helping me carry this beast out of a basement and storing it till I could come pick it up. I thought Contact was wide but this thing is huge!

Quoted from dasvis:

One of the best backglasses IMHO. Sound package is pretty annoying though.........

I'm becoming addicted to these mirrored backglasses. This one has a little flaking but not in any important spots.

Thanks to pinball-pat for parting with one of my all time favorites. 2nd time owning this classic game and this time it's staying. Lots of parts included to turn this into a gem. Also grabbed a nice Golden Tee complete on the same trip. Sore back today but totally worth it!!

Quoted from DennisDodel:

Reminds me of an ad that appeared in the Fall 1987 issue of 'Flashback' magazine and my ad in the next issue. Sadly, only four issues were published before going under. A great magazine and some of the funniest coin-op articles ever written.

Posted a quick gameplay vid on the 1812 for anybody interested, or those who may not have played/come across one before. I’ve been playing the hell out of this thing. Such a fun game with wacky ass sounds.

The RediMart down the block from me as a teen had a 1812. Love the campy, horror theme. Been hunting for one for years and have only found one for sale. Unfortunately he wanted close to double more then I was willing to pay. Oh well. The hunt continues

Because of a awesome friend I get a chance to play a game I've always wanted to try. Too bad it's thawing out after a 3 hr trip in -6° temps. Allows me to start shopping it out cause it is one dirty girl.

#13904 26 days ago
Quoted from topkat:

Glad to see you are watching the game.
Maybe “World Series” is an ok term if someone outside of the US is watching.

I kinda remember back in high school we won a couple? Probably would have 3 in a row if the 95 strike season hadn't happened with the Montreal Expos killing it that season. Go Astros. Would love to see the comeback.

Quoted from steve-o:

We got four pins scratched off our "Wish List" this weekend.
BSD, DW x2, CftBL and Congo.
Of the bunch, it will be the 1st time that a Congo has made it to our gameroom.
It was great to make new friends with cool pin-loving people.
~Steveo[quoted image]

I wonder if Steveo's wife is pissed that her parking spot is blocked by a row of awesome pins?

#14159 11 hours ago
Quoted from Scotty_K:

To be honest, I've never really been all that interested in slots myself; as I said, this is for the wife, who loves them. If it keeps her happy ("Happy wife, happy life."), then perhaps she'll leave me alone when I'm working on my pins. Besides, it was a bargain that I couldn't pass up.
The other benefit of this particular slot is that if you get tired of the theme, you can always get the software for other games and load it in.

All I've ever been able to find/come across are single line or 3 line slot bandits and they become stale very quickly. I'd love to find a newer game like the ones we play at the casinos that have multiple lines and multiple bonus games.
