Quoted from NewToPinball125:
Yea I have been in contact with someone I found on here who (I think) is local. It’s a 1990 Simpson Data East.
And I never thought about YouTube, great idea I’ll ask my kids to help me find a video lol
Welcome! I always enjoy 1st time posters excited about jumping into the hobby, as opposed to scammers asking 2x the market price of their beater game.
My first game actually was Data East Simpsons. With kids it’s a huge hit. Also it has a very simple ruleset that is difficult to master.
Having said that, it gets old... quick! DE Simpsons is a short ball time game with not a lot to explore. I thought the Simpsons money was going to be all the pinball money I’d need to spend to be content. I found myself spending an equal amount more to buy Stern HRC which many pan here but I loved as it had so much going on, offered much longer games, and complemented Simpsons very nicely. You may find yourself in a similar position in 6 months if you start off with a shallow game... but that’s not a bad thing. Like Stuart Scott always told me growing up “if some is good, more is better”.
