I started playing pins as a kid at the local pool hall and amusement park for kids. I had many places to play pins and arcade games when i was a younger. Every store you walked into had them, even department stores. That started changing as I got older. In high school I played Silver Slugger almost every afternoon after school, and played many early 90's classics pins at the bowling alley. Now as an adult I finally bought a pin for myself. I got a Comet which is fun and easy. This wont be the last of my collection for sure, i think i finally caught the bug and there is no cure but to buy more!
