Re: Introduction

Welcome!

If you're free on the afternoon of February 9th, there's a Ballers right near your town! Totally casual match play - $10 to the host for food, $10 to the pot, pinball all afternoon.

Re: Rick and Morty

The topper is essentially the picture Charlie posted; I think. Portal rotates on a motor (controllable on/of by the game), the other pieces will be in different layers for a 3d look to it. And it's got some flashers for lighting effects.

Re: Rick and Morty

See if Kingpin has any spots left if you want to be sure of getting a game. He can get your order in during the 2 week fang club period if you're a member. Then you don't have any worry, because if Chris says he still has a spot, he's got a spot. The distributors get a set allotment, so they know ho...

I'm in. Is there still room in the party barge?

Edit: by barge, I meant carpool.
Let’s see if we can make the entire drive without talking about pinball. :D
