    I know mine. What are yours?

    “It’s a coffee table!”

    These are so boring

    Way too slow!

    No words, user shakes head in disgust and walks away.

    Sincere question - what’s the most “interesting” / complex EM?

    I vote for Cleopatra EM: variable drop target value, bonus only for matching drop color with rollover color, quite complex for an EM

    Of the more modern era of EMs, I'd think maybe Fireball or any other multiball EM would be a good contender.

    But lately, I've really been digging older woodrails. They really experimented with their designs, and gobble holes can be a lucrative hoot. Check out some of Harry William's designs back then. He was designing in ramps before it was cool.

    Something along the lines of the following:

    "Just got this old pin in, many parts are available now!"

    #15 1 year ago

    "Mermaid? Oh,we put that old thing out on the curb last week".

    #16 1 year ago

    Seller: I have a complete Gottlieb Kings & Queens I'm parting out.

    Onlooker: You Don't have to, Wade Krauss has new playfields available right now.

    Seller: Not interested, I'm parting it out, it's what I do.

    #17 1 year ago

    I’m going to put all LEDs in it!

    Like that knucklehead in Alabama or wherever it was who parted out a perfectly beautiful Bally "Hay-Ride" a few years ago.

    Where’s Vid1900?

    Sad words for all pin fans.

    Who is older, you or the pinball machine?

    “Sorry we don’t make reproduction plastics for that game”

    Let's watch the movie Tommy.

    I cleaned all the stepper rivets by sanding them flat.

    #26 1 year ago

    I just sprayed contact cleaner on everything to try to get it working. And greased up all the plungers. And other moving parts.

    #27 1 year ago

    “Where’s the ball save?”

    #28 1 year ago

    I don't know how long those mice have been in there.

    Oh I didn't know those unplugged, so I just just cut all the wires

    I played this one for the first time over the weekend at ZapCon and thought it was really neat.

    It has some really cool features like a ball lock so you can get a multi-ball, as well as zipper flippers.

    “I just WD40’d all switches, relays and your score motor so she should run just fine now”

    #33 1 year ago

    "only good enough to put on fire"....

    #34 1 year ago

    Not really words, but I'm always amazed at the number of people selling an older pin on craigslist or ebay, etc. who want to show off that they have the $20 manual that you can order brand new, and the way they invariably illustrate that they have the super common manual for the game is they take a picture of it lying on the lower playfield glass.... obstructing the only part of the entire machine that you're super interested in seeing a picture of.

    #35 1 year ago

    I couldn’t figure out how to remove the top part so I had to cut the wires to move it. Should just take some soldering to get it running again.

    #36 1 year ago

    "........ I touched up the playfield myself!"

    And:

    "....A new ball and rubbers easily add $100 to the price." (a seller actually told this to me.)

    We found this in Dad’s basement, it wasn’t working. Just a little WD-40 and it’s running like a champ now!!

    #38 1 year ago

    'Definitely no more-we cannot move in the house now'!

    #39 1 year ago

    "You're not getting another pinball machine." - my wife

    #40 1 year ago

    I didn't know the backbox wires unplugged so I just cut them.

    #41 1 year ago

    O-Din deactivated himself a third time and is now locked out forever

    #43 1 year ago

    That thing looks as old and clunky as you do

    #44 1 year ago

    "One EM is enough..." - from my wife

    #45 1 year ago

    Will you take 250?

    #46 1 year ago

    Had a guy tell me not long ago that he gave a game to his brother in law and when he moved he left the game in the basement.I asked him what game it was and he said he couldn't remember but it had boxing men in the middle of the pf.ouch.

    "No low-ballers, I KNOW what these things are worth, I seen one on eBay sell for $5000 once!"
