    I hate Medieval Madness and walk right by it every time I see it. Same with CFTBL and AFM. If I owned all 3 it would be milliseconds before they were in the marketplace. It feels good to say that.

    Quoted from PinballAlley:

    what a great thread! I occasionally get frisky with the wife on top of our bad girls pin. I know, I know, just plain wrong on so many levels.

    So you play your games one handed, got it. Thank god for the beer seal amirite?

    I find it unbelievable that people buy $180 led light kits. The markup has to be 150%.

    Any pinball purchase only serves to fulfill the desires of your ego and self worth.

    Sopranos has a good story. Climb the ranks to become the Boss. Problem with story driven is that they become too linear and a good game is a long game and makes you want to move on to something else.

    Games I love to see at pinball shows: MM, AFM, TZ, TOM, MB, Totan, any new pin from the last 4 years. It means the games worth playing will have small/no crowds and I can play at my leisure.

    All Sterns since about Spiderman play and feel about the same to me and I can't imagine having a room full of them.

    Quoted from orangegsx:

    I tell everyone when they come over if they beat my hstd on EBD they can have the game. They won't, and I wouldn't hand it over

    What is your high score?

    Quoted from punkin:

    My first confession.
    The sigh that Gandalf makes on The Hobbit when you press start is the same noise i make when i'm about to take a piss.
    I tend to also answer my pinball machines, Hobbit is a favourite;
    smaug: How do you choose to die?
    Me: Standing up!
    After you!
    I also always call the Gandalf multiball voice for the Smaug multi and i roar back at the dragon on screen.
    My mates laugh at me because i spit all over the glass yelling at it. I really do feel part of the game in the hobbit.
    The also laugh at me when i'm having a good game and they think i am doing dirty things to the pinball machine.

    Out of the frying pan...AND INTO THE FIRE!!!!!!!!

    (please tell me you yell that like I do)

    Quoted from RCA1:


    ...new machine comes out that is not their pet theme. "Who cares about XX machine. It's dumb and I hate it".

    (Rinse. Repeat until we get a stupid Jaws machine that nobody wants or cares about except for 6 people who won't buy it because the cabinet isn't blue enough.)

    Quoted from dung:

    I am so sick of people sitting on overpriced games. It doesn't matter how rare your machine is. If it hasn't sold in 3 months or more you are overpriced. Sick of people who hold onto something over a few hundred dollars. Game has been for sale for almost a year take it as a sign.

    Whenever I see that I just assume it's someone low key bragging about their collection.

    I see pictures of beautiful shop jobs but all I focus on is the ratted out crappy lockdown receiver bar...

    Quoted from Eightball88:

    I level my machines by putting the bubble level on the glass.

    Not to beat you up because this is a "confessional" but this is a shockingly bad idea...that I also do regularly.

    A surprising number of spare parts in my workbox are because I ordered the wrong thing or way too many of the right thing.

    I don't like when people call playfield features "toys".

    "not enough toys on the playfield" = cringe
