  4. Congrats! I've really been enjoying the new rule set on our one.
  5. Will the Insider Connected games be connected to the internet?

  8. Sadly none to sell - I've only got one to display at the museum and one for my personal collection.
  9. We will once again have all the modern day flyers available to grab for free - got to promote pinball at every opportunity we get! For vintage flyers, we could bring some along and sell them at special request only (so no actual vendor stand set up with stock on show).
  10. I would never run a pinnie on a generator. I've had generators that were supposed to be "pure sine wave" end up frying sensitive electronics, so since then I only ever use power tools on generators. Given that you already run the pinnie on a gen then it should be fine on a battery/inverter which is what I've used.
  11. Used to run one of our storage sheds on a small 3000watt (6k peak) inverter, it never had any issues running any EM or early solid state pinballs (never tried anything newer on it). Though on that system I only ever tried one machine at a time, it never anything else running on it as its purpose was just to test machines to see if they were a good candidate for fixing up and working on. So just watch you might overload if you have other things on the inverter at the same time (bar fridge, lights, etc)
  12. Played it last month in the US. Really good gameplay, flows well, I really liked it. I'm no fan of the band, I hadn't even heard of Rush before pinball people started raving on about wanting a Rush game, but it works well just as background music, it suits the game.

  17. Might be a clone of Warlords, thats a 4 player spinner game.
  18. It's a great idea to have a self sufficient car, if I only did city driving it would be something I'd be watching closely. Current stats though don't hold up well. 12km range per hour of parked charging. One full 8 hour day charge will provide 96km range. Full batteries can go 725km so parking it for approx one week to get a full charge.
  19. Absolutely hate it when that happens! Mainly because its never the first place I think to look, usually end up spending a few minutes carefully going over every millimetre of the mid to upper playfield (as of course there is nothing to get stuck on down the bottom, right?), then end up feeling like an idiot when I discover it was right in front of me the whole time hiding under the slingshot!

  24. Yeah, have played a Night Moves, they are a million times better than any of the Allied Leisure cocktail pins of the 70s. AL ones are just so slow and boring, the cocktail pin is a cool novelty but the AL ones don't do the concept any justice.
  25. Pinball shed in queensland had a stack of these cocktail pinballs about a year or two ago, some were parted out, maybe see if he still has any spare parts left over?
