    Quoted from TOK:

    I can really only remember one time I met someone that had a pinball machine that I didn't already know was in the hobby

    3 members of my extended family have pins in their house and none of them are hobbiest/collectors.. Pins have been a popular 'game piece' in basement for many years.. just like foosball, pool, jukeboxes, etc. But they were expensive so they are less frequent.
