I've been waiting for someone to start a thread on this topic.

Quoted from Capper96:

Chas010 might have a point? I mean I can drive a couple of hours and plop 75 cents and play Medieval Madness. Why pay 12-14K for what you can play for 75 cents provided you take the time to find one on route?

That's right.....because there must be like 20,000 MM's out there just filling up all those pinball arcades all across the county!

Wait..........no.

And who the heck drives two hours to play .75 cent games?

Let's see that's four hours round trip. Average American vehicle gets 24mpg. Figure roughly 120 miles one way at the current US average of $3.63 a gallon, that's approximately $36.00 just for gas. Plus you just killed a whole day to play a few games of pinball on a machine that 85% of can't find even if we did drive 2hrs.

Quoted from chas010:

Argue with me how its smart to pay 12k for a MM. I must have missed your superior logic from this brain trust.

Well if you could sell for 18k in a couple years it certainly wouldn't be dumb. Betting on an MM rising in value is probably a better bet than the stock market (unless you have some inside information).
