Re: Move Confirmed

Grading is definitely important. The dirt on one side of our old house was retrograde for a while, and we'd get water in the basement. We had to replace the carpet in our pinball room as a result. After building up a nice grade of dirt away from the house, we never had problems again. Build up more ...

Re: Nintendo Switch.... Club?

I’m playing Hades lately. Lots of fun! I generally get irritated with “rogue-likes” being repetitive, but the variety in your weapons and how each run plays through makes it engaging. The theme is great, the voice acting is great, and you really get a feeling of getting better at the game as you pla...

Re: Move Confirmed

Congrats! You might want to visit Florida for a couple weeks in February, but otherwise I’d say Wisconsin has the better end of the weather. If you make it up here in the next month or so you’ll also be treated to the best part of the year, as the trees all go technicolor!

Just cause I misunderstood what “leaving a DIK on the table” meant? :D

Re: Awwww. Damn It

Wow, congrats on the new place, Chris! It's a bummer for all of us, of course, and I'm sorry we didn't get a chance to send you off, but I hope the move goes smoothly for you, and you find some pinball people way cooler than Nobling in Missouri. We were getting into pinball only a few years ago... w...

Re: So..., tell me about the Madison area

You could do what I did, and put a less-deep game there. I kept The Games for a while simply because it was six inches less deep than my other games, which made it fit in a tight spot. :) Nice that you ended up with a few slots that are topper-compatible. Looks like plenty of room for a group to pla...

Re: FS: Star Trek: the Next Generation $4000

I like how as the looming move of your giant pile of games comes ever closer you're deciding to part with more of them :) Crazy Strangeway's Moving Sale! EVERYTHING MUST GO! heh Yeah, I keep going over the dimensions in the new basement and as much as I want to keep more machines, I'm just not goin...

Re: Website Moved

I think the logo changed to be essentially a “refresh” a while ago. I used to use it too, but have now conditioned myself to using “Board Index”.

Re: Rick and Morty

Congrats, MIke! Two pins on the same day is pretty crazy!

Mine should be arriving today, too... Kingpin Claus is bringing this one straight to my house! Ho ho ho!

Re: Website Moved

Thanks for maintaining this site! It's a huge service to our community, and from the spammers that I notice occasionally burst through the defenses, obviously not something that just runs itself.

Re: Stern TMNT

I have very little enthusiasm for ANY pin right now cause my basement is currently overfilled, and I have one more arriving soon. So I gotta clear out like four pins before I buy another one. If I weren’t in that particular situation, I’d allow myself to watch the streams and get all hyped up. Love ...

Re: So..., tell me about the Madison area

Nice, I used to work downtown. I miss it! Tons of great restaurants and coffee shops, and I'd often walk State Street from the square to Bascom Hill for some lunch exercise. The ice cream in the Union is fantastic. Traffic inbound on John Nolen in the morning is good. Outbound on John Nolen at rush ...

Re: So..., tell me about the Madison area

We moved to Oregon for the schools, and are happy thus far. We're happy out here with the small-town atmosphere, although the property values are pretty high for a small town. It's definitely not a place to come if you want nightlife; there are few bars or restaurants in town. And as it's low-lying ...

Welcome to town, Eric! Oh, and what do you want to know about the area?
