    Is there a rehab facility for pin heads I have and have had a lot of hobbies over the years but this one is much more addictive... anyone else feel the same?

    #2 3 years ago

    Nope. Not addictive at all.

    #3 3 years ago

    I don’t have a problem I can stop playing pinball anytime I want.

    Okay who wants in for a two player???

    #4 3 years ago

    I can quit whenever I want. I don’t have a problem at all. Lol

    Yep! We love it and have been loving it for decades. There is always one more game to play and always one moe game to add to the collection!

    I ordered 3 games this week!

    I suggest giving all your money to someone that will take care of it, nurture it and allow it to grow. Then you can buy more later. I am not that person. I will have s new machine before the money is in my hands.

    4 is an addiction? Call me when you get 25. I'll be your support to help you through it.

    I'm still trying to figure out how I jumped from 10 to 25, but ended up with 41 currently.

    I wish I had room for more

    #17 3 years ago

    Are you addicted when you run out of room and ask your mom if she has room for one at her house because you bought another?

    #18 3 years ago
    Quoted from TAVsPlace:

    I wish I had room for more

    2110 sq ft house here
    1 project set up in the master bedroom
    1 in a 2nd 10x12 bedroom with a twin size bed
    2 projects in the 3rd 10x 12 bedroom
    2 in my 2nd living area
    12 in my living/dining combo room with a dining table and a cocktail multicade in there
    14 projects in the garage
    8 on loan to various family/friends that I had been rotating around

    Oops, I should not be counting RAZA that is not built yet i do show it in my collection list.

    I got it right now. 4 new games in the last month. Fortunately mine comes and goes. Usually a winter thing since not much to do here in Michigan it’s freezing cold and still mostly COVID shut down.

    #20 3 years ago

    Ok this is my last game...

    #21 3 years ago

    You can run out of money, room, or wives. But I hear they have storage units!

    #22 3 years ago

    My one game became three pretty quickly....although I'm maxed out for space. Not saying I might not figure out a Plan B but for now I'm at my limit....

    How did you fair through the loss of power and the extreme cold?

    #25 3 years ago

    The best thing you can do about it is perfect it, that’ll make it better...

    Lost power for only 56 hours and still working on getting my water turned back on today. Wasn't dreadful. Almost like going winter camping.

    I want to be buried in my theater of magic. When I die. This will happen.

    (This pinball thing, is fully in my blood.)

    1 week later
    #28 3 years ago

    I was thinking I had a problem, but then I realized that i can sell the Boflex to make room for another pin!

    I told my wife to put my ashes inside my ACNC.

    I have let my wife know that I want our TWDLE to be my coffin when I die. She said she would rather put TWDLE decals on the coffin and keep playing TWDLE in my memory. Pinball is alive and well in our home.

    If I get a stack-able washer/dryer I can fit in a Baby Pac-Man
