  1. Fullsteam Brewery in Durham has 3 pins in good condition. The current lineup is :
    Silver Slugger
    Lethal Weapon 3
    No Fear: Dangerous Sports
    They also has foosball, ping-pong and a few video games. Oh, and awesome beer!

    1. David,

      Thanks so much for contributing to this site! I’ve already added the information above with their logo! I hope one day we can play some pinball together! I’ll buy the games!


  2. Let me know when you come to greensboro and will play at lost ark we also have a monthly ifpa sanctioned tournament once a month. It is a lot of fun with good competition

    1. Keith,

      FANTASTIC! I was hoping there would be some ifpa sanctioned tournaments around town! It’s so worth the over one hour drive once a month!

  3. Fat Daddy’s has a lineup change! The desperately-in-need-of-a-shop-job NBAFB remains, as does the ball-busting X-Files, and replacing Tommy is a No Fear that is cosmetically nice but already has annoying mech issues–left flipper sticks, trough opto problems, etc. Still definitely worth going and playing, though!

    Last night was a great meeting of the Triangle Pinball League! Nice turnout to play Pinbot, Fish Tales and The Shadow.

  4. We have an X-Men pinball machine at Spandex City in Charlotte. We are a comics and games retailer. We also have periodic one-day pinball contests at the store. Come on by!

  5. We just opened up X-tra Ball in Charlotte, NC. We have 5 pinball machines (and hand-dipped ice cream!) check out our website and Facebook page for photos and league info. Facebook.com/XtraBall

      1. Aaron, thanks for the add and the bump! Can you please edit the name of the business to ‘X-tra Ball’ (it’s not ‘Extra Ball’). Thanks!

  6. Boxcar Bar and Arcade in Raleigh opened recently. Currently they have two pinball machines, Rescue 911 and Breakshot, but hopefully they are adding more
