Hey Tim...this probably isn't the best weekend for a Ballers night since it's Pinburgh weekend and I know a lot of people are planning on going. May be only a few people left back here in WI.

Thanks Greg... I remember an email from Eric stating this, but ended up having to choose a night in August or a night in July where my wife is off for the weekend (she works 3 out of the 4 weekends). I guess we will see how it goes as far as attendance. I hope there are only two people that show up to my event, one being me, and the the other being Chris S., that way I can finally take some money home.

For now, let's call this event-
"I can't make to it Pinburgh, so I got stuck at Tim's"

I might have a 3 week old by then, so I might need to get out. Put me down for maybe. If the schedule fills up I will step out.

Tim can you update your list of playable games. I fear that you don't have enough machines currently working to actually host. Your list is Very misleading on playable games.

Also I will not be attending until we know the bowler is actually in working order.

191 days to get the bowler fixed. :lol:

"Other things to keep you busy" is code for "things you can fix while you wait". I like it.

When did you get an ice cold beer?

Picking up ICB this Saturday. It is the ICE version, so it is a little more modern with a few more settings and holes. Chris has volunteered his morning to pulling it up a flight of stairs with with me.... What a fool...

Easy money there. We ran about 50 of those in the route. I "tested" all of them repeatedly. Fyi, windex will help with the shitty orange bands. It somehow makes them stick more so that they grab the wheels better.

Awesome, thanks for that... I am picking up the ICB, extra NOS glass, NOS boards, and NOS belts, etc. all together from the seller. I was thinking about putting a powerball or something like that in there to speed it up a bit. :)

Don't think they are the same size. Could always great the bar though.

The ice versions have the difficulty settings right? Is this thing pretty easy to master on the most difficult setting?

I'm sure there's a difficulty setting. I had a Taito ICB and the difficulty will shorten the time when the bar will start jerking around if you let it sit. The first trip up is normal, then it'll ratchet up the difficulty each trip up.

I used to be pretty good at it, but everyone else in the house hated it, so I sold it (for too cheap). I miss it occasionally!

Congratulations, and i'm looking forward to seeing if I still have the touch!

It comes apart into small pieces right? Like 2' pieces at a time? :roll:
