I recently found Pinside when I was looking to purchase pinball machines (used) that I was unable to find in my local area due to high demand or they weren't the quality/price I wanted. Now that I am a part of this community I see what a wealth of information there is and now awesome it is to read the forum posts!
I've loved to play pinball ever since I was a little kid. For my birthdays I would ask my parents to take me to play pinball. Now that I am in the position where I can buy games myself I am eager to build my pinball collection with my family. Fantasy themed pinball machines are my favorite type....My husband likes Simpsons, Jurassic Park, Terminator, etc. (I like those as well).
