Quoted from dirkdiggler:
Awesome! I'm curious what got you into pinball and decided to buy your own game? Visit a barcade, ex pinhead, dad who had games?
Mine only plays when we are at a pub that has games. Rarely does she play at home and never starts a game by herself.
My boyfriend introduced me to the hobby. I have enjoyed it with him ever since. We have met an incredible number of amazing people just by travelling to shows and other collectors homes together. I really like certain types of artwork, history, and making games look new as well, so I think we just have similiar interests. Buying a game became a personal goal, but I really wanted to understand how pinball machines worked and how to keep them running first. That is how I ended up choosing my first game, an EM, which was simpler to understand, and as I found out later, it was the same game Roger Sharpe "called the shot" which made it even more special.
Someday I may own my dream game, Paragon.
