As many pin folks, I was memorized by arcade games when I was a kid. I believe it was the sounds and lights for me, however, I was more into the video games at the time. I could play video games with a few quarters for hours playing space invaders, pacman, breakout, and astroids. However, I could never master the pin, when I was a kid. Years go by and now I'm raising a family. One day I got the Williams classic pinball video game for my son's Playstation 2. And there it was my memories of the sounds on my TV! Those beautiful bleeps and buzzes! Soon I got the controller from my son and started to play some pinball. After a little while, I started to achieve all the table goals. My wife even mentioned to us her memorial days of playing Funhouse and skillball at the jersey shore. One day I took my kids to the local bowling alley, I found the Simpson Party Pinball machine, this pin is a 100 times funner (I know that's not a word, but I like it!) than that PS2 game. I knew right there and then I was a pinball addict. The next day I took my family to Dave & Busters in Philly. To my very disappointing shock, no pinball machines on location at all!!! When I got home that day, I started surfing the web for places where I can play. Delaware is not furnished with enough pinball. For the past year, I have traveled far and near to purchase pins so I can play at home. I have lost sleep thinking that the next pin i'm hunting for may be gone, or someone has over bid me. I'm still pissed off that guy who undersold me a Cyclone for $50 while I was driving to his place to pick it up. I would have gladly paid him more. But life goes on, my wife likes to play too, I'm pretty lucky, however, she said I have enough now. I don't think that enough pins is possible. But room is getting tighter, maybe I'll trade a few, when i'm ready to sell. I immensely enjoy having friends over playing these pins and just listening to the bleeps and buzzes. I'm glad I got into pins, I enjoy playing as much as tuning them. Most people think I turned into a dork and spend too much money, but they can go to hell. I'll never grow up and why would I? Well, that's my story, I hope I can meet other pinsiders around the DE area and get some tips. Keep Flippin!
