    52. Bought my first machine (Black Knight) when I was 17.


    #105 1 year ago

    I got my first and second pinball machine over 20+ years ago at the ripe age of approximately 10. Still have T2 and JP today.
    I got back into pinball about 4-5 years ago. Went stupid for a while buying and selling. Now I’m just enjoying playing with my kids.

    #106 1 year ago

    61 last November. Pinball playa since I was a kid. Started collecting when the now ex bought me a Fireball II off CL for 600 for my fiftieth birthday. Gone through like 50 machines since. Also somehow became a repair guy.

    Been teaching almost 35 years, 30 at my current and forever job at 7th grade English. Already on my 2nd generation (kids of kids I had). Gonna be here until I die in front of them. Got Star Trip cocktail and Alive in my classroom. They both get prolly 30-50 plays each morning before school. Gonna bring Fun Land in soon so they get a taste of EM.

    BTW: Does anyone in California have an Escape from the Lost World for sale?

    #109 1 year ago

    If we're talking 1st pin stories, my buddies is good. Close to 20 years ago his buddy had a Star Gazer. He said I want to give your wife a present for her birthday. Give me $200 and I'll put in $200 and we'll haul it down Into your basement when she's at work. He's now 67 now and still has that Star Gazer

    The 32-52 crowd is strong here. I'm a 1980 kid.

    I've always been active on the forums of any hobby or vehicle I have owned.

    Quoted from Breaking_Dad:

    Lemme guess....no wife and or kids...?

    Well correct on the kids. I also technically don’t have a wife because I’m gay. But I am in a happy relationship. This is a dedicated game space and not the main living room so I get no gripes so long as it stays in my “play room” . I have about 1000 more square feet we can finish in the basement and we haven’t decided if we are going to leave it mostly open and make a massive double sided game room and bathroom or if we want to keep game room in current location, Move seating downstairs for the second living area while also adding a bedroom/bathroom and at same time opening room for about 5-6 more pins in the current location. It’s a walkout so that is a consideration. No steps vs a half flight up or down depending on if I come from upstairs or the basement.

    I wouldn't have said Lemme guess...no wife or kids...?, but more like no kids. Money sinks, they are, but we love them (most of the time). Having a SO that helps pay for the same place makes your money go further.

    49... got addicted to slurpees and pinball at my local 7-11. There was an Addams Family next to a Fish Tales maybe 1991 or 1992. But my first memory was around 1980 and seeing a Gorgar at the roller skating rink. Machine scared the crap out of me.

    58 - plenty of time to work on winning the "he who dies w the most toys" contest. Been at the pinball thing about 30 years now.

    #120 1 year ago

    27 with one pin and still saving for a house. That part makes it hard to pick up more

    #121 1 year ago

    63, I've been collecting games since 16 (1976)

    #122 1 year ago

    19. I've been doing arcade stuff for about 5 years now. And i've only just started pinball repairs and collecting some odd 30 ish days ago.

    #123 1 year ago

    Old enough to know that we all get a lifetime. Some of us might earn an extra ball or two though.

    #124 1 year ago

    getting too old when I think about it....saw Led Zeppelin on their 1977 North American tour at Madison Square Garden, but it was a great time to be playing all the 70's pinball games at that time, there were like 2-3 new machines a year coming out from the big "3" makers, never really waited that long for a new one to show up.........

    Quoted from Nickson:

    19, here’s my collection….

    You're 19 and have a collection like that? I'm in awe

    #127 1 year ago

    Too old to rock and roll, too young to die.

    (No, you're never too old to rock and roll if you're too young to die!)

    I used to give my age in hex, but ever since 3A (now 3E) it made no sense whatsoever to normies. But just wait until I get to 40!

    I had to go to a hex conversion website (I guess I’m a normie), but now I know how old you are!
