AWESOME GAME!!!!!!.. congrats!!!!.. I love my yellow stick Eagle game.. I think it is the fastest and smoothest game ever made! A guy on ebay sells Eagle springs for $10... get a new set.. you will be amazed how much smoother it plays! Does the ice surface need leveling?.. Looks really flat!

Thats the ticket Antonio. What vintage games aim to do is to create an atmosphere of visiting the past so that future generations of games and players will see a proper diversification of the hobby. Yes we all know that Stiga is king. However other games from other eras can help fuel the growth and participation of the games in the players and leagues going forward.

Next month a batch of Game Room Coleco games from the mid 1970's is going to hit the market. My friend, Rich, in Sarnia Ontario plans to sell one so will Jim Rzonca in Chicago. There are other avenues of table hockey being played today. Jim Rzonca and the Chicago guys still play 5385 CTHL style straight slot hockey with Coleco plastic banana blades. Dwayne Stegner of Chicago has an awesome Munro League as does John Medema. Carlo Bossio and the Quebec players are still playing S slot games some restored and some made by Carlo and and his brother Gino from the Martin LaBelle technique perfected to play with black plastic Coleco flippers and stickers from the 1970's. John Power has a lot of New York City area players getting a good fix of S slot and straight slot Coleco hockey using 4 1/2 inch goals, hollow pucks and yellow plastic stick players... a super realistic form of patient, methodical, low scoring hockey much like the real thing. Antonio has got the central Ontario scene rocking and rollin with a variety of games and disciplines. AJ Sarma has the LA hockey scene flaming red hot with exquisite S slot games and tourneys, Steve Dowell and the Raider have got the central Pennsylvania scene crankin.Whatever you do: get behind the rods. Play Stiga, play vintage. You need a vintage game send me an email and I'll find you a game and if I don't have it I'll get my friends like Jim Rzonca, Steve G.,Dave Luciani and others searching for the game you want. We are a small niche hobby made up of hockey playing junkies. If you want it or desire it the games can be found...that includes the old Swedish games and the classic Eagle's, Coleco's and Munro's.The NHL season starts with pre season this next week...the game is back and that includes table hockey.

Very happy man indeed with my eagle Jeff many thanks again.
It is good to know that people like yourself Steve and the rest of that niche is around to help finding these great vintage games.
And you speak the truth my friend the Ontario is scene is rocking with my league and the other great leagues here.
Keep up the great work.

Nice to see a game like that go to a good home Cheers

Keep posting those videos and having fun with your league. Great job Antonio!

I'd start a vintage collection but all I can find are Crestas Rolling On Floor Laughing
