My pinball obsession only started a few weeks ago, so I don't own one yet. Any tips on creative ways to acquire games? Obviously, I could drop huge $$$ on a HUO MINT SHOPPED something or other, but what is the fun in that? I've bought a few non-working arcade games, and find that fixing them is extremely satisfying. (Though sadly, I fear they will soon give way to pins).
It seems really hard finding non-mint stuff for sale at the moment, though part of the problem could be that I'm interested primarily in DMD games and we're in a potential price bubble (encouraging flipping).
Is there a right/wrong way to inquire about purchasing an un-loved pin on route? Does that ever work?
Anyone want to share some ways they've recently found pins that need a bit of love?
