I always think it is better to start with an older early SS or System 11. So many great games to choose from, dip your toe in for 1-2K. Look at Flash, Meteor, Mata Hari, Blackout, Flash Gordon, Skateball, High Speed, Pinbot, Cyclone choices are endless. You will learn a lot about pins and how to maintain them before you make a big purchase or you may find you prefer the older games like a lot of us do. Don't limit yourself and have fun.
