I played a ton of pinball in college in the early 90s - we had an arcade in the student center. (Naturally, it's not there any more.) T2, CFTBL and Cyclone are the three favorites I remember. (And Gilligan's Island...all I remember about that one is "Shrunken Head!") After college I played whenever I stumbled across a machine somewhere, but sadly it's been few and far between in recent years and now I probably haven't played in 5+ years. I always kept in the back of my mind the idea of having a pinball machine at home, but the idea went dormant for a long time. Now that my kids are old enough (I hope) to enjoy them I finally revisited the idea and decided to take the, uh, plunge. It'll be two machines to start with, and then we'll see how many of my kids' toys I can move out to make room for more!
