    I bought my first pin yesterday. World Cup Soccer (WCS). Just set it up tonight, and everything seems to be running well. The playfield is very nice. Backbox and cabinet are very nice also. I went with WCS cause I liked it a lot, and its a great family pinball for my kids. I bought it private party for $1,600. Looking forward to shopping for my next pin

    Congrats and welcome the wonderful world of pin ownership and to Pinside. Sounds like you picked up a great deal that the whole family can enjoy. This can be a pretty addicting hobby but so much fun!

    Congrats on the pin and finding this site. Great place, moderators keep everybody on track. Either that or it is just a great group.

    They do breed, I started with And they do not stop coming.

    Yea, I'm already talking about a 2nd one. The wife if cool with it, but wants to wait until the kids are a little bit older (I have 4 kids under 6 years old). I played a couple games with my 2 oldest this morning and they really liked it. Once I get the kids hooked, I got it made

    My 4 yr old granddaughter plays for hours. She is a hoot. She is also pretty rough on the game...I am thinking about buying her a 'zizzlez' machine. Congrats on your purchase.

    Congratulations on your first pin! You just got your first one and you're already itching for another? Yeah, it's kind of like that.

    #13 9 years ago

    Same as my first pin...great choice! Wait until you play Germany, one of the best Wizard modes ever! I made it there twice and my son made it once, when we used to own it. What a rush!!

    I've bought 8 Pins in the last 7 months. Actually 9 if I include WOZ. I had 1 for 3 years without any problems but as soon as the second one came...POW! There were 7 more.

    But I think Black Rose has got me beat. He goes through machines like shit through a goose.
