    I back up some of the other posts - no pinball for this dude.

    20 y/o women dislike/don’t understand pinball - it’s lady repellent. Trust me - I know, I did way better when I didn’t have all these games weighing me down.

    He’s gonna be busy with other things - the pin could get trashed when all 25 freshmen get trashed - I say college is expensive enough, don’t need to add a pin to the cost.

    Quoted from Pahuffman:

    I disagree wholeheartedly. First, it's not for the women. It's for the 25 guys in the house. I don't think the pin will get trashed if everyone sees the love OP's son puts into maintaining the game. I mean these are industrial machines designed for public use. Women will think it's kitschy and unique. Plus there's a chance that OP's son can expose pinball to hundreds of other people that are in and out of the house that otherwise wouldn't take the time to care.

    I know it’s not for women - but being 20, almost 21, the few women that have seen my collection find it kinda odd. Just in a “Why have all this old sh!t?” Sort of way.

    Sure, a couple people might discover pinball - but that game is gonna get messed up over time.
