    Bought a Centaur, great deal, and had it shipped by Forward Air. First time I'd used them for shipping and I assumed the game had to be broken down for a pallet. Had the seller remove the legs and fold down the backbox. When I get the game the otherwise perfect backglass had a little scratch from the corner of one of the score displays. The display had one of the factory foam tape strips missing.

    Since learned that for the price I paid Forward Air will ship the game fully assembled.

    Don't use one of those big AC powered wet vacs to clean out the bottom of your game. I did it on my Centaur and it worked great, until it sucked up the Manufacturer's Certificate and yellow power supply labels.
