  1. Its probably more annoying then scary. Sorry but it made me laugh you saying damage is scary.
  2. Hi All. Sorry for the delay. Sending out PMs shortly. Games list will be Comp games Ghostbusters Blackout Firepower Defender Space Shuttle Space invaders Free play games Robowar Metal man Excalibur
  3. 30 sold in the last 24hrs. That’s a pretty big effort.
  4. One of the nicest men to walk this earth and I am so glad I had the opportunity to meet him. It’s a really sad that he left us early. There is no way he will be forgotten though. Here are a few pics for our visits.
  5. Thanks. I guess that’s what happens when you wait until the machine is announced. That’s already been established though,
  6. Just the same as how people come on here and flex that they have secured something others can’t. 💪
  7. They could do online orders only or via the phone when it is actually announced. First in first served. Like concert tickets. What is the cost of the LE?
  8. Is that correspondence from the supplier? Lucky.
  9. This is a really good point. Look at how GNR blew up on release. You could only assume it isn’t done and that is why?
  10. They are invoice numbers that everyone is listing. They effectively mean nothing. as the hype has slowed it looks like they aren’t going to sell the 250.
  11. Houseball #4 2021 Dave and Sandys Place 29th May Jamboree Heights Comp details. 4 hours of qualifying with a 2 p.m start. Finals to be held after dinner which will be at 6pm but if qualifying can be done sooner it will be earlier. Please get your comp games finished ASAP so you have plenty of time to socialise afterwards. Score sheets will be on each machine with attendees names on them. If you name isnt please write it down. Format. There will still be an 'A' and 'B' Division as per 2019 with equal prizes in both. You play 6 games on the nominated machines with your best 5 results going towards your final standing. The top 4 placed players will go through to the 'A' division finals . The highest 4 from the second half of the field will go into the 'B' division finals. Finals will be on 3 randomly chosen machines with the 7,5,3,1 format of awarding points. Single round and the person with the most points wins. Tiebreakers are TBA. House rules. Please remember that Houseball is a social event, we are not playing for sheep stations. Please show the hosts and their machines the utmost respect as without them this event ceases to be a thing. Please remove all rings/bracelets when playing. You will be asked to leave if you are found abusing machines/other players. Smokers please ensure you leave no butts around the place. The host should be able to tell you where it is ok to smoke. As usual 30 will be the limit unless advised. And lastly, a bit of friendly banter is encouraged. ** Please note ** People will be asked to maintain social distancing and i will endeavour to provide hand sanitiser. If you have a small personal bottle of hand sanitiser it would be great to bring along with you on the day. ** If you have any cold/flu symptoms , please don't attend ** Food and costs. $10 covers food per person. $5 to cover the hosts expenses. $5 into the prize pool. Total $20 for the event. 1 @zanderzone 2 @Sandyzone 3 @rusty_dagger 4 @Cranky Dave 5 @raysco 6 @Dicky 7 @Andyj965 8 @namastepat 9 @JoeSoap 10 @DAG 11 @dr teeth 12 @roland rat 13 Will 14 @Nicolas Noben 15 @Silver Surfer er 16 @madal 17 @Tonjo 18 @SilverBalljunky 19 @Markc840 20 @Saber 21 @ncb74 22 @FireFly 23 Gordon 24 Dayv 25 Nigel 26 @Piercy05 27 @DanTheMan 28 Scotty Piper 29 30
  12. Many have tried. Many have failed. my understanding is that selling pinball machines isn’t the importers main business.
  13. Yes it does work through a browser but notifications is the biggest thing. Much easier to know someone has posted on the Houseball thread then having to check in regularly. I think you can get email notifications but my mailbox is full enough already. I know a few people that have the same opinion so I have had to resort to using Facebook to try and get more people into and back to Houseball.
  14. From memory the results were A division Top 3 finished on 13 points as mentioned above. Russell Dagger first due to highest qualifying position Dave Clark second as second highest qualifier Dan O third due to qualifying position. Matt Hetherington fouth B division Ben Piercy Grant Quinn Mark C Hayden Dagger Special mention given to @visualmagic Alex gave the spot in B division to Ben Piercy without enforcing a play off as has happened at past events. As for the results of A division. Not having playoffs is how it has been run and we really dont want to change it mid year. I am not sure if you know but this is how Elvis won his comp. Most probably dont as it wasnt really mentioned. Suggestions will be taken for next year that wont make these events run later than they already do. I am not a massive fan of the way it is worked out but it is efficient with timing and also rewards the person that qualifies higher.
  15. COVID is a thing again. I can’t find anywhere that says we have to shit this down though.
  16. List should be up to date and PMs coming out shortly. At this stage it looks like the comp games will be Trident Flash Gilligans Island Baseball Starlight Centaur
  17. Def Leppard and it would be take all of my money.
  18. After multiple emails trying to find out I got my answer. That is why is suggested to others to keep trying.

  20. Thanks to all those that made the journey out to my place. It was a fun day/night as Houseball always is. Special thanks always goes out to my helpers. Beardy Dave, Cranky Dave and Travis. As there was a few people that told me they missed the post here I am going to try and put the Houseball thread here and also create an event on Facebook and invite the regulars.
  21. Your statement that people know their position is totally incorrect. I have spoken to multiple people that have no idea what position they are. Also some didn’t get notification they were getting a game until days before it arrived. Obviously you must be speaking to different people than me.
