Is I'm going downstairs to play some transformers. 7 simple words. A sentence that has brought tranquility into our home. My wife has been pissed at pinball since about game 3....it's so nice to have her back. The york show took the hate out, transformers brought the joy and fun back for her.

Hearing my girlfriend turn on my machine from an adjacent room is always cool.

I cannot get her to go to a show... She has made a few road trips to pick a game up, but that is it...

Mine is on again off again lol. She gets embarrassed when i watch her play but if i am off in another room you here her in their having a blast lol. Glad your wife enjoys a hobby as you do, always great when your partner in crime is by your side

Mine doesn't play too much because I take too long and she gets tired of waiting. She will play a new game the first few days we get it only, basically before I get too good at it.

Any time my wife is in the gameroom, I try to let her pick a game first. Then, I pick a different one so that she's not getting bored. It's rare enough that she wants to play, and I don't want to run her off when she does.

Unfortunately, that train long since left the station!! If my wife gets a high score and I later bump her name she gets POed... She says I do it on purpose...

My wife never objects to my pinball sickness.. In fact, she was the one who wanted the WOZ. But oddly, rarely plays.

If my wife ever gets one of my high scores I'm hanging up my pinball gloves (note: I don't really wear gloves to play pinball...).

I'll often put her initials in when I get a high score. Makes her feel better about not being able to get one herself.

My wife will never play, but my daughter (almost 13) will sometimes. We have the same problem. My ball times are too long sometimes, and she gets bored. So, I've started doing a tournament with her. We each play all my games at our own pace and record our scores, we multiply her scores by a factor as a handicap and see who won the most machines.

Perhaps she likes the nut shot in the game......

so my wife comes home from work, and the first thing she says: ".... turn down that fucking noise!!!!"

House Rule: Loser of last game goes first & picks the pin.

So it's become a daily ritual for her. She's even text me from work with the word pinball in the subject line. I guess her enthusiasm is spreading as her coworker wants me to locate a pin. I decided to reset the high scores without mentioning cuz I know how competitive she is. Somehow she managed 28 combos in a game to snag that high score, and she's got 2 others. She's hooked line and sinker.

My wife and I like to play pingolf. Her target scores are about half of mine, so she often wins and sends smack my way.
