    A HUO game doesn't have to be perfect. A game with 10 plays might have a really faded cab. A game with a beat shooter lane might have a great play field. A game with lock down bar holes might overall have a great cabinet.

    There are tons of indicators that might mean one thing or another. By itself, HUO is meaningless. It's a piece of the puzzle when determining the condition of the game.

    HUO by itself should do nothing for your expectations. Sunlight in a house can ruin a cab a lot more than a well taken care of game in a dark non smoking bar.

    HUO is HOME USE ONLY. If your game was at a convention, a bar, a church, it is not HUO. This actually isn't debatable. If you think the game that you took to a convention, moved, and had played more in 3 days than it would have been played in 3 years is home use only please let us know so we know who not to buy games from.

    Quoted from J_Striker:

    When you purchase a pin that says huo and it is getting shipped you have high expectations for condition.

    I don't know what kind of shows you go to, but a guy who went to the local show posted that his Medusa had 842 plays during the 3 days show. And that's not exactly the most popular machine out there.

    Quoted from Frax:

    If you're only playing 500 games in 3 years on your games, I've got to ask why the hell you even bother keeping them.

    Or maybe Frax error? His EM's were getting around 500 plays.

    Quoted from Frax:

    User error, or other aberration such as being in an Xpin booth?

    Quoted from 5280wzrd:

    That is my Medusa (842 plays) at this years Rocky Mountain Pinball Showdown. Delta Queen (528 plays)and Aztec (472 plays) No user error here.....
