As a 10 year old kid I was hooked in just a minute at the first pinball playing at the local minigolf area in year 1977. The game was a Williams OXO and I now can see that it was a pretty new machine at that year 1977 (the first OXO was made in 1973). It was the coolest man-made-thing ever buildt I was thinking - for real. And that's not all, it was really "nice" older guys hanging around the machine, they sold a gameplay for the half price from their own credits - after they had tilt-banging the machine and got a hole bunch of credit freeplays. Remember - the year was 1977!
After that I have been playing at pinballhalls and have been seing the rise and fall of the pinball halls. In 1997 I started to get som sparemoney and was thinking of get me an own game instead of pay for a play. And so it went on, with a long pause having children with no sparetime, to be year 2023, with a 8 machine history. But -it is only 1 game at a time. And the plan is to get forward in the year the machines were made. At this specific moment I have went backwards in time but I was in betwwen two games and this not-working Cyclone with a nice playfield went up for a good price. So after repairments and a lot of time with troubleshooting its now working and I am playing it meanwhile I am waiting to sell it - to get money an go forward in time after year 1991.
