    curious, why dont you play your games?

    did you used to play, or was it always about the other aspects of the hobby for you (collecting, hunting, refurbishing, etc...)?

    Quoted from pninja005:

    Yeah; I used to play quite a lot (LOTR days) but since a couple of years just going downwards. I still like to order, enjoy getting the new box, unpack, boot up a first game and then....

    so, what changed for you?

    I ask because I at times dont play for a bit (mainly during busy summer months) but I always find playing pinball to be very cathartic and enjoyable.

    I was getting a bit burnt out and then got into some older games and I enjoyed playing again. I found that I like the challenging shorter ball time games.

    I also keep things fresh through doing multiple things in the hobby. I play, restore, collect, route, etc... When I get bored of one aspect I tackle another. It is the multiple dimensions of the hobby that keeps me engaged.

    I also have found that meeting new pinball people also makes me enjoy playing more.
