    Lets try again...without a lockdown this time. Sat April 9th. 4pm start. Box Hill Melbourne. Thirty vintage machines each machine will have a couple of quests to try to complete over the night. Completing the quests will add to your score card tally. For example... Roll Captain fantastic over the top. Win extra shots on the Bonanza gun game. Clock up 85000 to win a credit on Royal Flush Get a perfect score on Galaga challenging stages one and two Win extra ball on Gorgar and light special on the one ball Win a game of bowling on Ten Strike against someone you have never played against before Get the high score of the night on Nine Ball Get the most boat rocks on Fish Tales Beat my Daughters high score on Sound Stage which has eluded me for years (this challenge is worth the most) ect... ect... Winner at the end of the night wins the RUSTY BALL CHALLENGE ! BBQ supplied it will be at my home. Bring your own drinks. I will PM the address to you closer to the time. This will be my first meet. I look forward to seeing the collection being enjoyed. If you like old games you don't have to compete, its for fun not sheep stations. RSVP and send me a message. Cheers John

  3. Just jumped on AA now and seen this. Boy did this topic go skew wiff and off the rails ! Well said Grunta ! Look forward to having the meet in the future.(plus side is I am dragging even more machines out of storage and getting them done in lockdown) Till then post your Covid opinions elsewhere !
  4. Well really sorry but there is no way thirty people can be playing and enjoying at a pinball meet next weekend. I have put a mountain of work into it, and will post another date in the near future. :(
  5. it has crossed my mind. but life goes on. A pinball party is a pretty good way of ending lockdown on the flipside.
  6. This meet has been on simmer for a little while now but… Finally it is June that means the meet is now next month. It is open season ( people who have hosted before have registered) so far we have a dozen or so but now I would like to open it up to anyone who has an interest in old arcadia and would like to attend. Attendees will be capped at 30 people. I will edit the fist post with the attendee list as it develops in the up coming days. Heres a games list of what we will be playing on. Each machine will have its own quest or challenge to complete for points. You will be busy playing through them all. However if you just want to play and chat you don’t have to compete, it’s a social night for fun not sheep stations. Penny Arcade… Over the mountain Big strike Flip Ball Penny Ship Skillo Lady Luck Par five golf Zipper Skill Pop up Sweet Sally Go go girl Whiz ball 1930s Pinballs… Contact (first electric) Airway Harvest moon Chicago express EM Pinballs… Gypsy Queen Around the world Casino Sound stage Jumping Jack Royal Flush Captain Fantastic Solid State… Mata Hari Flash Gordon 9 Ball Dot Matrix Adams family Q ball wizard Dr Who Indiana Jones Fish tales Gilligans Island Revenge from Mars Other… Galaga Space Monster (Taito rifle) Bonanza rifle Ten Stike bowler
  7. If you still have... Pro Football Williams world cup 78 Sinbad I will grab those three please.
  8. Thanks Grant and family for your hospitality and sharing your collection with us all. Really enjoyed it !

The collection is a little varied and different. The meet is capped to 30 people. Let me know and I will add you to the list below I will need a rock solid commitment , a maybe will not reserve you a spot. Then others don`t miss out. 30 plus Machines to play from vintage penny arcades thru to 90s pins the rough breakdown is... 5 1930`s pre flipper Pins 10 Penny Arcade games 2 EM Gun games I EM bowler 6 EM Pins 4 SS Pins 7 DMD 90s Pins (see further post for complete game list) THE QUEST Each machine will have its own challenge very little is score based. Some examples may be light special on Flash Gordon, advance 3 balls in the red zone of the 1935 Chicago express, advance to special on Mata Hari by shooting only the A B lanes.
