Let the guy sell his game

I kind of want to play one of these again and see what I think of it.
I’ve only played it once at Banning a couple years ago and thought it was kind of fun. Although to be fair, I was on my 6th beer at that point in the day.

Is this the one pinball star sold for 3800 or so on their Facebook page “one hundred dollars less every day until it sells” thing?

#16 2 years ago

Still can’t believe I managed to sell mine. Minor miracle. Best of luck.

NO we sold ours for 3,700 and it's not this one... Mine was an open show game. We had fun with the $ 100 off a day thing although it only lasted 3 days... We started at $ 4,000 which was $ 1000 off NIB price of $ 5,000 which we thought was quite a nice discount to start with.

I will say as well there is ALOT of stuff going on with this game mechanically and it's fun to play... Did we sell 100's, no, but the ones we sold all are being enjoyed by folks, I only know of maybe 1 or 2 of ours that still aren't with original owners. We as collectors pay a lot more for games with a lot less and god knows we pay a shit ton more for the high end stuff with some shiny powdercoat or a piece of a couch, or for something way off the mark like WNBJM or Primus or Heavy Metal etc... This is a nice lower end / starter game for someone needing a lower price point and there are lot of other games new and older we all have in our collections that suck more. Take it from someone that's put time on it like people who have bought it vs most naysayers who form an opinion after flipping one ball at a show and walking away because they don't like the theme. Anyway I add all that for the seller's benefit as people will just come here to shit on his ad talking about something they probably don't know anything about. PS. I have no more to sell so I'm not doing anything but voicing my opinion, not trying to sell anything.

GLWS !

A sales promo blurb you used to sell the ones you had?

Hey OP, here's a ringing endorsement for you to use in your ad!

If anyone wants an honest owners opinion of the game, please read my review.

I'd rather have a plaque affixed as a disclaimer to each one:

This machine was designed by the dregs of the Australian pinball scene
and in no way reflects the demographics or creative input
of the broader Australian pinball community.

Read it. I give your review 10/10.

It was like you read my mind writing that. Agree with every word.

How many plaques would you need? It can't be that many.

Not as many as was being touted, that's for sure.
