    He’s a pinball fanatic and is heading off to Union College in Schenectady NY. Im looking for something absolutely bulletproof, 2k and something he & his dorm buddies would appreciate. Game protection & security shouldn’t be an issue as he’s 6’3” 310lbs. He’ll be sharing housing with 24 other freshmen.

    They have this strange type of housing at Union College where groups of 20 or so kids live in multiple stand alone houses with 1 big kitchen, 3 baths, BBQ grills outside and a big living room. He wanted my 1069 Chicago Coin Apollo Moon Shot arcade rifle game but the school has a no guns policy. Playboy for a pinball “would be a no” says my son as it’s too “insulting to women”...
    If I had the cash I’d spring for a Revenge from Mars cause it’s risqué but not too much.

    My son’s super mature and will be living primarily with his fellow footballers. I know this sounds like a recipe for an Animal House type of situation but to know him you’d loose much of the anxiety with leaving a machine in his care. He’s a rare combination of size, strength and talent as he is his high schools (award winning) orchestra’s first chair violinist/concert master and an all scholastic football stand out. He’s worked on many pinball machines with me. He so enjoys hunting for a good pinball machine off of Craigslist all he asks for his time/effort is a large vanilla frosty from Wendy’s. Maybe all those trips to pick up machines from basement, attics and walk-ups gave him the farmer strong strength he possesses now. Imagine the movie Blind Side and just exchange the quarterback for a pinball machine.
