I currently have about 30 pinball machines in my collection.
A group of us in Cincinnati started the Cincinnati Pinball League in 2012. We meet once a month.
I play pinball 3-4 times a week for a few hours at a time. While most humans are watching whatever program happens to be playing on their television.
I usually have pins for sale. Check the marketplace ads. I do not ship machines and I never will.
I attend the Chicago Pinball EXPO, The Louisville Arcade Expo, The [Akron] Ohio Pinball Show, Pincinnati, Replay FX, and the Midwest Gaming Classic shows regularly. I also attend the Pinburgh and PAPA world championship tournaments.
I have collected video games, arcades games, and pinball machines for over 20 years.
I can answer and likely suggest a solution for just about any technical problem you may have with a pinball or arcade machine.
I don't collect one specific generation or era of pins. I try to diversify among manufatures and board generations. Nearly every pinball manufaturer created at least one great pinball at some point in time!
Most games I collect are from 1975-1993.
I own 3 EM pins and about 26 SS pins.
I own 3 modern Sterns and 3 classic Stern pins.
I own about 10 arcade machines.
Pin longest in collection: High Speed
Most recent pin acquisition: Wild Fyre
