The only machine I saw while I was in Canada was this Buccaneer in a shop in the Kensington Market area. Tragically, it was out of service. I still don't think I've ever played pinball in Canada. One of these days!!!
A few weeks later, back in the states my wife Claire and I were up in Oakland seeing a movie, so we swung by the Legionnaire Saloon to play a few games of Monster Bash. The machine had a full-color LED dot matrix display, which I have been seeing more and more of lately. They are super cool looking! I kind of want to get one for my Medieval Madness machine, but they are still pretty expensive... I know a lot of work went into graphics, hand painting every pixel, so they are worth every penny. I guess I just gotta save up for it!
Then, at the end of the month, I was in Chicago for the CAKE festival. After day one of the show a big posse of friends once again headed down to Headquarters Beercade for some free pinball. Yes, I repeat, FREE PINBALL. It was a good way to wrap up the month of May!
