I've been a pinball fan since the early '80s when I spent most of my teen years in arcades. Sure, played lots of video games, too, but always wound up back at the pins. Still play plenty of video games but always wanted to have my own pinball machines. This was the year with help from my good friend @pintechev -- 3 NIB machines now inhabit my basement. I have room for a 4th. So... what to get? So many great machines.

Well, I've played Cirqus Voltaire a number of times and while it can be polarizing I happen to love it! Started the search and found one. Road trip! Boxing day, on the road at 0610, Ottawa to London and back. Sounds like fun! 1275 km and 13.5 hours later -- home with the latest addition. This is such a great hobby. Thought I'd share some pics.

Happy holidays everyone!

Nice. Congrats on a great game. It's a real beauty to behold. Set it to hard setting and get one of the black glare guards for it. Good luck with it.

Congratulations! My wife(girlfriend at the time) and I years ago drove 14 hours to get a CV and worth every minute, plus we had a good time on the drive. No longer have it now. Hope you enjoy it!

Thanks. Yeah, it is switch 11 in the cannon path -- no ball up there so the switch hasn't been triggered. I have to open that and put a ball in there!
