Achieved most games through hard work and sacrifices. Sometimes I view pinball games as Investments. This is not always typically the case. A lot of trades happened too. I remember one month I believe I spent $26,000 on pinball machines. Have to love the hobby to put that kind of money into it. Right now I'm barely scraping to come up with a few hundred extra dollars to complete a purchase on a Rob Zombie spookshow International. This money will likely come from selling pinball machines in which I have lost interest. Many possibilities can be open to you ...... just work a little harder!
