I have a problem that in many ways is a good problem to have I guess. I have 2 x ACDC Premium machines, one being the standard machine and the other one being a Luci. My problem is that I can't keep both and I don't know which one to sell. My wife doesn't really like Luci, myself and the kids do.

I know this is such a first world problem but what to do? Keep the Bride happy and probably live to buy more machines or keep a machine that looks really really cool and epitomises pinball to me? Both machines are HUO. I have had the standard machine for probably close to a year now, I only picked up Luci today.

I like Luci more....but if your collection is at stake because of the look of a game....keep the standard Premium.

It's only pinball.

Happy wife, happy life.

Sell the one that causes static with the better half. Make a compromise and get Aurich's Helen translight and call it a day.

Keep both more pins at the next meet :-

Both machines have the same gameplay. At this stage in life you have to pick & choose your battles.
Keep the original premium and sell the Luci! Your wife is happy and you still have a premium to play. Now, move on with the rest of your life!

My wife is pretty good about the machines when all is said and done. She swore black and blue that there would never ever be a pinball machine in the house.....there are three inside now.

I wonder if I could argue that you wouldn't really see Luci is she was tucked in between the other machines.IMG_6387.JPG

Keep the Luci, put it to a family vote.

Keep the Luci, put it to a family vote.

Normally that would be good, democracy....but typically the wife rules by monarchy

We will have to have a meet very soon then.

Lose the Luci. Wife equity is way better than pin equity these days.
