My best friend texted me today and writes: I have a friend from town that wants to get rid of their pinball machine for free. it still works. one bad flipper. Do you want it for free?
my response : absolutely. do you happen to know the name?
"no. they don't know. call her monday. very nice people.
so here is what i think (the couple is around 40 y.o): how don't you know the name of your machine?!! so my guess is its an EM. if it were newer, i think the probability of them knowing the name would be much higher. i.e. if it were a "KISS" or an "ELVIS" they would have remembered. one flipper doesn't work and they are aware of that (but not the name? lol): means they hardly play it and once the flipper broke for the 400th time they gave up fixing it. kids don't play it anymore/they need the room so they are tossing it. definitely an EM. maybe an early 90's game that isn't a licensed game, making it possible they don't know the name yet still being a SS? wishful thinking?
just not an EM guy…but maybe this will be my path to the EM world.
give me your best deductive reasoning for why its a solid state game……(or maybe you agree with my hunch?)
