PGJ 2013 PINBALL CALENDAR--$6 This 2013 calendar is also issue #152 of the PinGame Journal and was sent to all current subscribers.

Speaking of beauties, Capcom artist Stan Fukuoka has created another original pinup for the cover. This time, expanding on a background image from his Big Bang Bar backglass to feature server Phoebe and her galactic dragon, Max. Also featured are many of the major pinball events of 2013 worldwide.

This method will include a small service fee we are charged by PayPal for the convienence of this online transaction. This fee appears as "shipping and handling." You are under no obligation to pay this fee (about $1.50 on a $34 subscription), however we would appreciate if you did, as those little amounts add up quickly! If you prefer not to have the fees added, please click HERE and pay to email@example.com

CASH--Some, especially "foreign" subscribers, choose to send U.S. Currency rather than use a check or money order. That is fine and we've had only one problem with that method. But keep in mind that there is no "record" of the money sent or that we received it. If it is lost, we can not be responsible. It is important to us that everyone knows there are no guarantees. PayPal seems to be a much better alternative.
