    Pretty straight forward. How old are you?

    I'm 44. When I got back into the hobby I was mid 30s and meeting guys mostly in their 50s and 60s. Now it seems I'm meeting more and more people in their 30s and early 40s.

    Also, who's the oldest and youngest pinsiders?

    Any pinheads in their 20’s?

    Probably not. This hobby is too expensive.

    Casual players? In my area they're definitely 50+ but everyone has a great story!

    #21 1 year ago

    In my 30s now bought my first NIB before I was 18. Course they were a lot cheaper back then. Had to fix up a fair number of games to get it though.

    Nice! I bought my first home when I was 24. Making a whopping $8/hr. Lol.

    Wish I thought of buying pinball machines back then. I was collecting video games and had 3 arcades. Russian Attack, Legendary Wings and my all time favorite game Bubble Bobble.

    Just got sucked in last year.
    Played a few games in high school, but most of the few quarters I had went into Pac-Man and Galaga.

    #41 1 year ago

    36 but Ive been ths youngest in my peer group my whole life. Graduated college and comissioned in the USMC at 20, left as a Captain with a wife and baby at 25. Bought my first house at 25 as well but didnt buy my first pin until after my youngest was born at 31. Most people assume I am late 40s. I will probably die young.

    #42 1 year ago

    58. Bought my first game for my first home in 1994 (Cast Fantastic) when I was 29.

    #43 1 year ago

    37 here. Didn’t use the theater room enough in my first house, so I decided to do an arcade in the second one.

    #49 1 year ago

    You Americans with your huge wooden houses. In the UK we're packed in like Sardines. Saves me money buying pinball machines, 'suppose.
