    I've been doing this for 30 years now, taken my share of games in and out of some pretty tricky places, but yesterday took the prize!! 4 pins and a video game up an outside set of stairs that was literally terrifying, I didn't even like walking up and down them never mind hauling games!!

    Luckily, we were able to borrow a Stair Cat, which made the task possible but it was still pretty sketchy, if anything had slipped, things could have been a lot worse than just a smashed machine!!

    I'm sure others have some pretty interesting stories of places they have gotten games out of!

    This is one of those situations where I anchor the dolly with a big ass rope in case it slips, or a stair breaks or something!

    All the power to you. I wouldn't have done THAT for pinball.

    Me neither!! Hang on... which 4 games again?

    I guess it's a dumb question to ask if those games are now bolted to the floor?

    One of the games was a Haunted House, so not a light one either!! The deal was very good, apparently they had been sitting in a room in the basement for 10 years, but no one wanted to try to get them out.

    As fun as this was, they mentioned if we knew anyone who wanted to buy a pool table, I can't even imagine how that would go!!

    Pool tables are awful. I've helped my dad move them for years at the amusement company he works at. Fortunately we have very few left in service.
