    Eye-catching subject, huh?

    I was wondering how often you play all alone in your gameroom?
    I find that I really enjoy when there are other people playing my machines...but the reality is that it's just me probably 80% of the time.
    Wife occasionally will come and put up a game or two, and occasionally we have visitors who play.

    Just wondering if that's the norm?

    #2 6 years ago

    95% of the time..

    #4 6 years ago

    Every evening...and my palms aren't even hairy.

    #5 6 years ago

    Weekdays: Every evening 30-45 minutes just in the door from work and then about 30 minutes after dinner.

    Weekends: At will.

    #6 6 years ago

    At least 85% of the time.

    I wouldn't have mad skills if I didn't play with myself.

    #12 6 years ago

    Thats a loaded question. Why? What have you heard?

    She said she wasn't going to share that video with anyone!

    #14 6 years ago

    I would be now, if I wasn't working.

    #15 6 years ago

    As much as I can,
    Usually after everyone else is asleep and I can be alone with my... Games!

    #16 6 years ago

    Most of the time... every few months I have people over to play, but usually its just me playing the games (last night was a nice crowd of 10...I guess it was a pin-orgie)

    #17 6 years ago

    I have to beg people to play.......I wish the general public was a fanatical about pinball as we are!

    Quoted from NJGecko:

    Pretty much every night before bed.

    #22 6 years ago

    Whenever the wife isn't around.

    #23 6 years ago

    I play at least a couple games a day.

    The question should have been phrased "play by yourself" instead of "play with yourself" unless you always start games as both Player 1 and Player 2 and compete against yourself. Otherwise, the "how often do you play with yourself" question is a bit personal, isn't it?

    I'd gladly socialize with a buddy while we take our turns playing one pinball machine. This was an efficient way for us to learn new games when we found them on location, since the one playing was concentrating on keeping the ball alive while the other person could watch the playfield and dot matrix display and tell the player what ramps or targets he should be shooting for during different modes. But once we each got a few games in our own homes few are patient enough to wait a few minutes between turns on a machine. My best friend is so impatient that if I'm playing well (and therefore taking too long for his liking) he'll fire up another machine down the row and start playing a game on it. Then when it is his turn again on the machine I've been playing, I have to wait for him to finish the ball he's playing on the other machine before he'll come back over and take his turn on the first game.

    Frankly, wizard modes such as Rule the Universe (I don't know who is voting for me, but I like getting re-elected) and Lost in the Zone are reached easiest when I am playing pinball by myself and not distracted by socializing or taking turns.

    Wow that was one serious dissertation ....

    #26 6 years ago

    Far too often. And when I do, I paint my nails and turn my hand upside down.

    #29 6 years ago

    all the time, unless I can talk someone else into playing with me

    #30 6 years ago

    I just got down with a solo session.

    Only if it has LED's imbedded into it...

    This IS Pinside after all!

    #38 6 years ago

    Well I cleaned my balls and polished the plunger then went a couple of rounds. No happy ending, still didn't make the board.

    #39 6 years ago

    Sometimes I take a video of me playing with myself and post it on you tube.

    #40 6 years ago

    every time I drink

    #41 6 years ago

    I just finished up. How come I feel so drained?

    #42 6 years ago

    Some pretty long ball times w/ Novus 2.

    #43 6 years ago

    Don't get to play enough. It is more fun though when friends come over and play. To me, it's very enjoyable to have other people really have fun playing your pins.........

    That is the story of my life lately as well. My friends just don't get it.

    Only good thing is my daughter loves to play, but she has an 8pm bedtime.

    I hope you let the poor guy plunge the ball every now and then or it could get frustrating for him!

    #48 6 years ago

    Whenever I feel a bit tense, pent up and need a release.

    #49 6 years ago

    #50 6 years ago
