I need to get through this financial rough patch I'm experiencing already! Missing out on some Wishlist tables! Hope this finds a new good home.

Now that it's sold, can we ask what prompted the sale?

Mostly it's a space issue. The wife wants to downsize and my dreams of owning the holy trinity (Paragon, Centaur, Fathom) more than likely will not come to light. With less space I'll only be able to squeeze in one early Bally SS at a time. The Whirlwind I'm restoring is almost done, right now Centaur is sitting in it's spot. Once Whirlwind is done I'll probably move Paragon as well, hopefully get a Fathom.

Also on a side note, I'm discovering I'm not much of a multiball guy. In order to put up highscores on Centaur you need to keep that going rather than strategizing how to go about it.

I guarantee however that I will miss this machine.

#25 6 years ago

Fastest sale ever?

#26 6 years ago

For me? Yep.

#27 6 years ago

3 points come to mind...

Quoted from schwarz:

1. Viking or Paragon.

2. I think it's not too fair to call Fathom a "multiball game", I can't KEEP a mutiball going in Fathom to save my A$$. Keep hunting for it.

3. "Whirlwind vs. Centaur" is an honorable fight.
Centaur would be the winner in my book by a hair, but my GF wouldn't agree...

Whirlwind wins out over Centaur all day long in my book. Whirlwind is a classic that never gets old for me. I own both games.

#29 6 years ago

The holy trinity of issues:

Time, Money, Space

Money is #1... The other two are just excuses -- (where I live).

Time and Space aren't that important if you live in an area where pin fans live (people with time and space and no money. For every guy with a little extra $ for "one more" pinball machine there's a really nice Pinhead with a wife and kids who can't budget for one, and would LOVE to play and maintain your machine.

I'd put that Centaur in a good home, keep it in your name, and own 4 machines, friend.

So the lesson I learned here is when I'm ready to buy a Centaur, I need to bribe someone's wife to make them sell theirs.

I am keeping both. Most people that come to my house flock to the DMD's. They are missing out.

#33 6 years ago

heh, the trinity for me for the ballys would be centaur, fathom, and ebd

Picked up and paid for; on it's way to a good home.
