    Quoted from tracelifter:

    and we liked it!

    My mom was 5 when this game was made and she is 25 years older than me.
    You do the math.

    Talk about a good place to learn your nudging skills.......

    Older than I was yesterday, but not as old as I'll be tomorrow (if I make it).

    #205 5 years ago

    It is little past 3pm. Time to hit the Golden Corral steam table buffet for supper. JUST joking!!

    #206 5 years ago

    32 here , always loved pinball since i m young but collecting seriously since 2 years..

    #207 5 years ago

    I switch poll options in a few days. So i wait to give my vote. Cause i favour the oldies.

    #208 5 years ago

    24, been around pins for a while now. Collecting for a short time!

    #209 5 years ago

    Good research so far.
    I'm surprised that the "average" online pinball collector is ~41. I would have put this number much higher like 50.

    Quoted from jrivelli:

    Haven't you been 22 since you started on here lol

    No, I started at 19 at Pinside.

    #211 5 years ago

    I'm actually happy to see the numbers stay low. If they start to rise, that means that pinball isn't catching on anymore and will eventually die along with it's collectors.

    Has there been a poll of how long ago did you buy your first machine? I'm 47, but just bought my first machine (OK first five ) within the year. I do think there has been a nice influx of both younger folks and "seasoned vets" getting back into it.

    Found one from 7 months ago...I'll have to repost in a few months and see how it compares to last year

    37-- but most of the girls I date are 24 so that makes me 31

    #218 5 years ago

    45 - bought my first pinball in 2003 Harlem globe trotters.

    #219 5 years ago

    47... Played all my life. Don't even remember my first time seeing a pinball machine. They were just always there... Owned games the past 4 years.

    35 in hexadecimal
    or
    110101 in binary

    or 65 in octal but that actually makes my age look even older

    413 in dog years

    #224 5 years ago

    what was the question again? ha (57)

    #225 5 years ago

    It's been said that income, age, availability etc all play a part in pinballs current popularity. For giggles I found an age/income graph that when turned sideways looks a lot like the poll results. Interestingly when I rotated that graph, my 40yo perve eyes saw something much more interesting!

    Nice D cup graph! Now you know what to show at the next meeting, by accident of course.
