Happy New Year!
On this long delayed episode, we talk a bit about what we’ve been up to the past couple months, and what we hope 2015 brings us.
We also announce a new contest! Make sure you listen to the end of the podcast for a pinball sound snippet. Email us your guess as to what pinball machine this sound is from, and if you are correct, you’ll be entered in to win a 3 pack of LED pop bumper rings courtesy of Comet Pinball, and a custom shooter rod of your choice from Wizard Amusement! Winner will be announced on episode 111 next month.

Now that the busy time of the year is behind us, we can get back to important things, like the podcast, and more pinball roadtrips!

Just wanted to post a quick update concerning the lack of shows for October, and looks like November.
This time of year is quite busy for Rick and I, although we had a show planned for October, various things got in the way, and we never got around to it. We were going to try and do a show this week, but with Thanksgiving/Black Friday (ugh), I do not think we can fit it in.
I’ve also been rather busy restoring the Police Force pin that I picked up at the Sevierville auction. We will cover that, as well as a new contest with prizes from Wizard Amusements & Comet Pinball in the December episode! Might even get some guests back in the studio, who knows!!
Join us as we invite our friends Marc Crouse, Roger Deem, and Gene Wills on to the show in our very first roundtable discussion. On this episode, we discuss our memories of arcades from our youth, our favorite games, and the current state of arcades today.
Elmer’s Rotted Wood Stabilizer
The wood repair glue Roger mentions.
Sega Mach Storm
Good representation of how much arcade games cost the operators nowadays.
$30,000 will buy you this!
Upgraded the podcasting mixer, and started recording Episode 109!
We are inviting a couple friends on board for a roundtable discussion about arcade memories from years gone by. Stay tuned!
In this episode, we talk a bit about how the Power Up Retro Video Gaming convention went, and also discuss how to use LED strips to liven up your pinball machine!
LED Strips @ Amazon
These are blue, but you can get them in any color. $8!!
RGD LED Strip Kit @ Amazon
This is the RGB kit we talked about.
8 Way Terminal Block
Nice way to hook up more than one strip to a single 12v power source.
