    No...my HUSBAND plays on occasion. Not as much as his parents did when they came to visit though. I've taken to resetting the high scores when there's family visiting or my daughter has friends over. They go home with a cool story then.

    Quoted from MustangPaul:

    Why is it that so many wife's DON'T play.

    I could give you a few reasons maybe. If they are the ones who have to keep up the house all by themselves, then they might be too worn out to do any physical gaming. Maybe they think they will 'look funny' playing it - much like some people don't like to get up in public and sing. Maybe they feel it's boring.

    I'm not one of those kind though, so I really couldn't tell you. Then again, I don't get women who look at a screwdriver like it's from another planet, either. "tools? Aren't those for guys?" pfft.

    Quoted from blondetall:

    A lot of my female friends find it intimidating

    Heh. I don't have any female friends locally.

    Quoted from blondetall:

    By "a lot" I mean the 5 females that come over maybe a few times a year. Lol. We are boring anti-social people who occasionally invite people over for holidays, so it is mostly family and girls I work with or my renters. I have had open houses here for my side business and people will go down to the gameroom, say they love pinball, then refuse to play. Oh well, their loss. I need more and better friends it seems.
    Sharon, if you're ever in the area, come on over and we'll play.

    Ha, I don't feel so bad now. We've moved a lot so friends drop off the radar and such. My best friend from 1st grade is a guy, but he lives on the other side of the country from us. His wife is really cool, she'd play. My other friend is about 6 hours south, she'd play as well. My older two kids don't play but my youngest does if I can pry the laptop from her hands.

    The offer goes both ways, let me know if you're ever in my area too

    My 13 year old plays, but my 21 and 23 year olds don't. (not wives, but young women all the same) The 23 year old doesn't live at home, but the 21 year old says "pinball is stupid". I'm planning on having her drawn and quartered next weekend.
