I bought my first game in 1984 after a break up and I could buy what I wanted! I got a Stern Galaxy and then a few years later I got a Black Knight. Then I fell on hard times and had to sell them in the mid 90s. I got married in 2003 and the wife always heard me talking about my old games and told me too buy one. So 2007 after my mother died, I think that is what got the itch back and I found a Captainhook that was missing parts and had a bad mpu. I didn't know about pinside back then. I wish I had, that would have saved me years.
