    All of my machines are in my basement and I never realized how hard the floor was until I bought a Stern players mat. What a difference! This thing is amazing! So how do you play? Shoes? Socks? Barefoot? Poll added!

    I push the flipper buttons with my fingers.

    All of the above ... but I cant stand playing with flip flops on & will always fling them off in favor of barefoot

    #4 1 year ago

    Shoes, socks and a beverage.

    #5 1 year ago

    Slippers at home.

    #6 1 year ago

    Usually only play at home & barefoot.

    #7 1 year ago

    Buck naked.

    Poorly. So poorly.

    You need these for all of your pins: https://www.titanpinball.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=64&product_id=144

    Great product, and you're supporting a great guy & small company with a passion for pinball!

    So is this thread just a pitch?

    #16 1 year ago

    After I workout I strip naked and head upstairs to shower but find myself stopping to shoot a few games on the way

    I have to play in shoes or at least slippers - the floor in my basement, even with carpet and whatever standard underlayers kills my feet. I've got a thick anti-fatigue chefs mat that I move between games on top of that. I guess I'm becoming a geezer now at 41...

    I need to pony up for one of the Titan mats - I've eyed them before. Anyone know if they're better than your run of the mill average 1" anti-fatigue mat comfort wise, and beyond just looks??

    Not my intention. Since he brought up the Stern mat, I wanted to bring attention to other options for those who are interested in such a thing. I have no affiliation with Titan Pinball outside of just using their products, and judging them to be of high quality. The owner is a lover of pinball, attends shows across the country, and genuinely a really nice guy. I like supporting people like that, and telling others about them.

    This is pretty much the best reason for buying NIB that I've read on Pinside...

    #21 1 year ago

    Socks and/or slippers. Carpeted basement floor w decent padding. My ball times aren't nearly long enough to allow my feet to get sore.

    #22 1 year ago

    Barefoot, at home.

    I’m beginning to understand why some folks are apprehensive about the camera in jjp games.
