Another child of the 80's here -- turned 13 in 1980 and somewhere along the way before that my Dad brought home a Pong machine. I was mesmerized and know that it hooked me onto electronics and computers. From age 11 or 12 I spent so much time in arcades -- it was a glorious time! I loved video games (still do) but always gravitated to the pins. So tactile. So physical. Just magic from a young age. Here I am just about to turn 51 and have wanted a pinball machine of my own for a really long time. Today I finally have one! I started out large and in charge... a NIB AFMRLE!
