    Quoted from Tuna_Delight:

    Is that the British spelling?
    ยป YouTube video

    hehee, have you guys seen The Inbetweeners film? it's very British, with very British humour that may not all translate outside the UK, but probably most of it does. they had the Pussay Patrol - check this clip:

    wow, i hadn't visited this thread in a week, now it looks like if anything it's gaining momentum. i agree that over the next 12-18 months the marketplace will thin down.

    i predict that it'll go from Stern-JJP-Heighway-Spooky-Homepin-Dutch-Chicago+/-American, P3, others .......

    Quoted from gearheaddropping:

    My friends and neighbors could care less which games I have.
    I had twelve 10 year old girls over the other day for my daughter's birthday party. Do you think they played WOZ or KISS? The hit of the party was a game from 1969 and not even a pin.

    What's that they're playing on?

    Same here, when my non-pinhead friends come over to play, they couldn't care less what titles they are. The most popular game at mine is always The Sopranos, but they dig all of them.

    In the UK, hardly any of my pinhead friends buy NIB, it's a luxury item like a car, and not that many people have more than one car. We all circulate the same second hand titles, but the prices have shot up by 20-30% on most machines in the last 18 months. Lots of new blood is good for the hobby, but plenty of the new guys seem to have very deep pockets: on the UK forum, nearly all the guys who are discussing their NIB games are newcomers. It's not a hobby for postmen and teachers and mechanics any more.

    I'm glad I got my collection pretty much complete between 2010-2015, much better of course to have done it 10 years earlier. I'd cash out in a heartbeat if I suddenly needed the money, then later I'd track down my 3-5 favourites to play in my retirement, and just get my fix of variety at pinball shows.

    All change. Merry Christmas pinsiders
