    Hello and welcome to the hobby!

    My first game was Black Hole. i love it to pieces. super fun game. i've had it for about 3 years, and i've had zero mechanical issues with it. i've pretty much only removed the glass to clean it (and add LEDs). by far the most reliable and trouble-free game i own.

    having said that, i know that's not the norm. Black Hole has a reputation for being problematic. However, there is a well-documented set of "bulletproofing" procedures that can be done to the game that turn it into an extremely reliable machine (mine is proof of that). if you can find one that has been bulletproofed, or feel up to the task of doing it yourself, then BH is not a bad choice at all for a first game.
