    I started reading this thread and thought (just like previously mentioned) hey, this is the same as "the confessional" thread I'm sticking with that!

    But now I'll be following this one too

    If I notice a burnt out light while playing, I can't hardly focus on the rest of the game. I'm just waiting until the last ball drains so that I can grab my tools, pull the glass and replace the offending bulb. I even have my wife trained to spot the little suckers and she's getting pretty good at it.

    I am much more paranoid driving home with a pinball machine than I am with driving home with another person in the vehicle. If there's an accident, people heal. Pinball machines don't.

    Quoted from Rondogg:

    The only reason I ever watched The Sopranos, The Hobbit, 007 Goldeneye, Flintstones, Walking Dead and XMen is because I already owned the machines and wanted to understand the games a little better.

    My wife has told me for years that the Lord of the Rings movies were 9 hours of her life she would never get back (seen before we were together). I love the movies and re-watch the extended versions every few years. Since we got LOTR pinball machine, she said she might be interested in seeing the movies again in order to understand the game and call-outs better.

    Quoted from vwallat99:

    I talk about my pinball collection or other games I'm interested in getting to my friends too much. I think they getting sick of it by now... I need someone else with this similar obsession cause none of them get it.

    Hey it's me.

    Remind her that there are also 3 Hobbit prequels...in case she wants to really enhance multipliers

    I am getting rid of furniture in my basement so I can put more pins down there.

    #160 30 days ago

    I built a house for my games, that house is bigger than both my first apartment and my first house put together

    ... oh, and I’m building it by hand and rarely get to play my games.

    #161 30 days ago

    If I had a walk out basement, I'd have a lot more pins. I'd probably be divorced too.

    I point to the right and wink when I get “the Spirit of the River!” callout on my Whitewater....

    I too sometimes wish they were all gone so I could get on with my life.

    But, then, you wouldn't have a life.

    I bought Safecracker without ever playing it because i only had 24” of width left in my pin room.

    #168 30 days ago

    I had a pin tip when sliding it to its new position. Immediate instinct was to stick my hand out so the pin head wouldn’t hit the other one. Ended up with a nasty bruise, but more importantly no pins were damaged.
