    So today the guy sends this response
    Hey sorry for the late reply, the game is still available here in Colorado.I couldn't get rid of it when I was in Erie PA. I made an arrangement with someone on Tuesday but she didn't show up till I moved out on Thursday. I've been trying to settle in my new apartment that's why I'm just trying your email. I still have it in charge of the custody of the Logistics company that helped with moving my stuff in case I need it to be shipped back to PA. If you're still interested you can come pick it up or I can make shipping arrangements with the logistics company. Thanks!Â
    what do you think the play is here ? try to get the mark to send money to ship it ?
    have the mark show up at some seedy location to get jumped ?

    Total scam.

    Why? Why do people always try to make coffee tables out of these?

    I wonder if there are coffee table collectors out there who take old coffee tables and re-purpose them as pinball machines.

    Quoted from the9gman:

    Don't you just love the write up on that one. People think they can make it worth more by adding some fluff bs to talk the thing up like its something special.

    My response

     That would be awesome my son just lost his leg in an alligator sanctuary accident and his name is Tommy and this would mean the world to him. Ever since he was a young boy he played the silver ball
    From Soho down to Brighton
    He must have played 'em all
    But I ain't seen nothing like him
    In any amusement hall
    This legless kid sure plays a mean pinball.

    Do they have Shriners in other areas or is that a michigan thing? Around here they work with children hospitals and ride around at parades in funny hats and miniature cars.i can see 6 shriners pulling a miniature flatbed trailer to make the pick up.

    they did not send a response to me .....think I would tell them that you have a friend in Colorado that will be picking it up for you and he is a U.S. Marshal

    Someone on fb just posted how they said they'd pick it up then got this response so I guess I'm going to have it shipped.

    #7468 43 days ago

    so just got a response

    It'll cost shipping fee to get it back to PA

    That's unfortunate you advertised it for free and I don't have any money

    and so they probably won't send a response
    amazing how this machine moved from Colorado to Utah

    #7469 43 days ago

    It will probably be in Nigeria and part of a dead cousin's estate before too long...

    #7470 43 days ago

    My response
    Wow me and Tommy just moved to Utah but my babies momma lives in Colorado so I go down for a booty call when my wife works weekends.let me know where and when I can pick this up I'm itching for some ball slamming action if you know what I mean lol and that whole cheering up legless Tommy thing,it's been like a month you'd think he'd man up and deal with it but he's just like his mom.

    There are many Shrine Temples around the country and around the world. The Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine or Shriners, is a concordant Masonic body. In order to become a Shriner, you first must become a Mason and complete the 3 degrees within the Lodge. There was a time that before one could become a Shriner, that the Mason also had to be active in either the York or Scottish Rites of Freemasonry. You will often see Shriners during parades and other gatherings. These events are often used as a way to support the main phylanthropy of the Shrine which is Shriners Hospitals for Children.

    It's overpriced, but it really earned its spot here for the choice quotes "all paddles work perfectly" and "Most features work flawlessly as well"
