Greetings all. This might be kind of an odd story and I’m not sure which sub-forum is appropriate, so please move it if needed.
My mom passed away due to complications from COVID on Dec 28th. My dad passed away from cancer in March... bad year for me!
I’ve been pondering what I could do as a long-standing memorial. What could I buy that would have some permanence to it that would bring me enjoyment that I otherwise would never spend the money for. After a lot of thought, I’ve decided to go with a pinball machine.
My parents weren’t well-off... we never really took family vacations... but one thing I remember is that they’d always give me quarters to go play pinball any time we went out to eat. (I loved playing as a child!)
During my college years, my friends and I would go to this little dive of a bar and play pinball on occasion. We played whatever machine was there, but my favorite was Medieval Madness. Researching it now, I guess that there’s good reason for me to like it!
So... I’m in the market for a pinball machine... and I would like to get MM (or MMR)... and now I find out that they are damn near impossible to find! That brings me to the purpose of my post.
Any advice on how to go about getting one of these machines?
Should I be looking for a different machine?
Other friendly advice?
