Quoted from Mahoneyj:
Sad to report my Grandpa Switch broke today like another posters switch. Stern is shipping out a new switch and I will need to do some soldering when it arrives. So the game will be down for a few days. Guess I will show my other pin some love in the meantime though but not playing this is killing me a bit.
I wonder how these are breaking? Is there something close to the switch that is hitting it?
