    Hey,

    Is anyone else here a pinball fan? I recently made this spreadsheet of every machine I've played. Warning-Its pretty nerdy, even for toy collectors.

    Missy's Nerdy Pinball Spreadsheet

    If you want to create your own version, just unfilter the results to include blanks under "Played" and every game known to man will appear :)

    My wife is really good at the Lord of The Rings pinball and most machines.

    I'm really into the art and would recommend this book.

    Still my favorite game to play. Whenever I am in Vegas (and that's rare) I always stop at the Pinball Hall of Fame and spend hours there. Hundreds of games and all at the original coin price from when the game was released. All proceeds. Not net proceeds, but all proceeds go to help the Salvation Army, and all the employees donate their time. I don't know how often games are rotated in and out, but there are always new machines in the back waiting for the owner to fix, fix up or whatever... I was told that there are hundreds of other machines at another storage location. I don't know. What I do know is it's the only reason to visit Vegas and fun for all ages

    You talk to me as if I haven't spent hours there myself ;)

    I love it there, but my heart is with the Silverball Museum in Asbury Park, NJ. <3 Free Play (You pay an all day admission or an hourly rate) Such a wonderful place.

    Above is Allentown Pinfest (in PA)-Its a huge show and again, everything is on free play (most machines are for sale) Its also a great chance to play prototype and new machines that aren't on the market yet since all the companies come out and show off what's new. Its so much fun!

    Silverball is at http://silverballmuseum.com/

    not sure how often you make it outside of the city but there is a bar called Railroad Street near Rofo with more than a dozen Pinball machines along with a pretty good beer list. My friend was in the pin ball league, place is pretty packed on the weekends.

    We have 2 great pinball places in the bay area. We have the Pacific Pinball Museum. It has rooms of era specific pinball machines. Each room has a matching era specific jukebox. Lots of machines rotate out and have a similar "all day admission" pricing. We also have Free Gold Watch, which was a quick walk away from the Super7 store on Haight. It's technically a screen printing shop but they put a few pinball machines in there to fill up their spot. Soon they had about 30 and I started going once or twice a month. Not sure how much they screen print now.

    Funny! I went there once because I saw that they had the Metallica Game when it was new and I was eager to play it. A friend and I ended up racking up like 5 or 6 free games on our first quarters, and the owner came over and introduced himself and was like "You guys are better at it than me, and I own the game!" haha.

    Have you been to the arcade at Cedar Point? It's my daughter's favorite part of the park, super old video games and skee ball.

    They've got a bunch of crude, probably 1960s pinball games. Not much fun to play but fun to look at.

    Great thread! Has anyone here been to PAPA? It's an extremely fun event for anyone remotely interested in pinball and it gave me an excuse to go to Pittsburgh as well.

    Here in LA we've had two recent places open with big pinball selections which has been great. With the mini pinball resurgence going on right now, we should see more new pinball machines this year than in any other year over the last decade or so.

    One of my local bars just had a BIG event last night to unveil the new Game of Thrones pinball machine (even the mayor showed up and played a few games)!

    We also have an Arcade Expo that is coming up pretty soon (which gets bigger and bigger each year).

    Here's some video I shot from a few years back...

    I'd recommend it. Sadly mines in storage, but I remember it having lots of nice pictures and a lot of great information...that I have now forgotten.

    KISS, Cptn. Fantastic, Gorgar, Simpsons, Evel Knievel and then there was one that rumbled like an earthquake. It was probably called earth quake, but

    As a kid my dentist office had an OG kiss pinball machine and I played the SHIT out of it. I played the new one last week and was kind of bummed out by it.
