My girlfriend loves pinball! We're in a long-distance dealio right now and met that way (she's from Texas) so when she flew down for a week and a half in June I gave her the ultra New Jersey experience, we enjoyed the boardwalk of Point Pleasant then hit the Silverball Museum on one of our days. We also spent a lot of time in my own gameroom. She already agreed when she comes back in December I'm going to spend some time teaching her the ruleset a game or several so she can really get good at it/them.
Being young is great: She only complains when I buy too many because that takes away from the plane ticket fund... but space is no concern! Honestly, though she's really supportive of the collection. Nothing quite better than being young, being in love with somebody who loves pinball (and getting it back, hah!), and getting to spend a whole day at a classic New Jersey boardwalk.
As Gottlieb always said... it's more fun to compete!
(I have my hair tied back because it was flying in my face in all the rides LOL, I normally look significantly less like a doofus)
