You know it...

You have been hunting a game for months, years, or even decades.
You finally find the game, make a deal/ put down the deposit, but need to wait for shipping/to pick up the game.

So of course you can't share what the game is, where you found it, or any details... for fear that something falls through (we all know that it never feels done until the game is in your car/home).

Well... I enjoy that feeling! Prolongs the excitement and anticipation.

Looking forward to sharing my next whale once I get it home!

Hope you have whales you land soon also.

I never count it done until it is in my car and I'm driving away.

You've always got one whale or another lol

Good luck on bringing that game home!

aint that the truth!

This current one is a good one, but wont have my hands on her for a little while!
So excited. Pretty sure I may even put it on route for a short bit for others to enjoy.

thanks dude!

The hunt is part of the fun for the rare and oddballs. I have been accumulating parts for this one for years with the idea I may build one from scratch. Pretty excited about it!

Nice! Always love it when you put the older stuff (I assume ) on route!

I dated a whale once. Does that count?

#13 4 months ago

BTDTBTTS....both in terms of having one get away and snagging one!! Actually snagging one was much, much better....

Good Luck Captain Ahab!!

#14 4 months ago

If it was Loch Ness , that would be cool!!

#16 4 months ago

It's probably some shitty overrated Stern like Catacomb.

Or maybe it's not!

Waiting with baited breath. Hope it's cool.

#17 4 months ago

I've already lost interest.

#18 4 months ago

In sales I say the proof in is the purchase order!

#19 4 months ago

I've landed a few whales in my day, but then decided to only start dating slim women.

#20 4 months ago

You can't possibly jinx yourself worse then you already have by just mentioning it. Might as well go all the way and just spill.....Waiting

I'm guessing no....it would have to be more Stargazer level if Stern to make such a thread.
OR...it could be a lame offshoot Stern like Cosmic Princess.

#22 4 months ago

I know the feeling although i count it once the cash has changed hands.

Bought a Sorcerer that i watched a member here restore in a thread 5 or 6 months ago, It sat in a warehouse in LA since, waiting for a container to Australia to fill up for a Pinball importer, it's on the boat now and should hit the shore next week. I'll see it in a couple weeks after that.

That's the longest suspense i have had so far.

Bought a Street Fighter 2 from right across the country this morning, it will be a few weeks before i see that one too.

#23 4 months ago

I know what it is !
I know what it is !
lol

Good for you Hilton !

#25 4 months ago

Enjoy your Hardbody!

#26 4 months ago

LOL

you guys crack me up.

sure... guess away.

Quoted from FatPanda:

It is not a modern game. You are correct.
Not a super rare, but rare to find in good original condition.

Nah. This one is secure. From a buddy and his word is his bond. That said, I still wont devulge till in the car.

never played one, but I would like to. Had that one on my ISO list for a while but they will be beyond realm of reality since the INDISC event feature it.

Good for you Hilton !

Knowing you... you likely knew before it was offered to me, lol

Maybe I'm off - thinking it was what we were recently talking about and trying to hook you up with ? or no ? I'm not sure that game is a whale, though...
Spit it out dammit !

I honestly dont remember which we were talking about last. Defender? Nope, I have one of those already

oh , and this is likely not a whale for you... but then again, you have like every Fing game ever and bought a Church to put them all

#33 4 months ago

I try, but I can rarely keep them secret. I've got an Indy 500 coming in tomorrow. Damn, happened again.

#35 4 months ago

Chirpin Crickets? No ones that lucky!

#43 4 months ago

Congratulations.

Me. I never think about it. Maybe my 19 years as a test operator. Some things worked out. Some didn't.

Once it's here, set up, and running. Yes, then I get excited.

LTG : )

I don't get excited until after it's set up, I've posted pics, and then get pinside's approval.

#45 4 months ago

I can never officially admit to 'making one from scratch'

Quoted from o-din:

That’s the only thing that matters

#47 4 months ago

I’m fairly confident that you bought it from a friend that lives in the swamp (Florida). I’d share my guess but if I’m right, I’d be an ASs for giving away the title (or a really good hint).
