We’ll be closed for a bit until we can fully assess the damage and required building repairs to get back to serving y’all @hammsthebeer and @underberg.usa with your pinball. We lucked out compared to many of our neighbors and we’re sending all the love to them and others affected in our community.
The building sustained severe structural damage and is closed indefinitely. The machines there were not damaged and have been moved for now.
One of the members of their local pinball community – not set up by No Quarter – set up a fund to help with rebuilding/relocating No Quarter and helping their employees. If you’d like to contribute, click here.

Fish Tale Symphony
Pincade is New Zealand’s biggest pinball weekend, and part of that is Fish Tale Symphony!! Per David Peck, the winner of the Fish Tale Symphony this year, here are some more details:
“Fish Tales Symphony – we have 10x fishtales, we line up 10 people at a time and give them a goal to get. First goal is “get monster fish” for example. First to get it gets 10 points, second 9 … etc. all games set to 5 balls. Then Start multiball, start rock the boat, etc.”
This is the brainchild of Simon Haxton from Wellington – Brilliant!!
