Gotta Love Pinball

I grew up in the 80's and like everyone else was into the classic arcade games. The first pinball machine I remember playing was an old Playboy in a local burger place. I remember my parents asking where I wanted to go eat and I would always say Pops Burgers even though I didn't like the food.

Fast forward a few years and I was walking through the local arcade. I look to my left and see a T2 pinball machine with a screen. The first DMD I had ever seen. I was amazed. I spent the entire day on T2 and played the arcades very little. I was officially hooked. I spent the next few years going to college and playing games like Twilight Zone, Addams Family, T2, and of course my two favorites, BSD and Indiana Jones. I never thought it was possible to own these machines without a load of cash. I met my wife and always told her when we were out of school it was my dream to own an Indiana Jones. A couple years ago I purchased my first machine (a BSD). Soon I added an Indiana Jones and a few other of my favorites. I go into my game room everyday to play or just turn them on to look at them. They are still just as magical to me 20 years later. And I have a very cool wife who supports my addiction 100%. Pinball is just such a huge part of my childhood and my life. Just gotta love pinball

I started slowly with BSD and slowly they just started to appear. She saw how happy I was playing. Good luck. One you have her on board, it's smooth sailing :)

God bless you, Lord knows I've tried to get my wife on board with this but no luck yet. Still I've managed to sneak 3 past the goalie and waiting on 1 more LOL!
