Quoted from ralphwiggum:

If it isn't a System 11, it has no value to him. Although there is a rumor that this is part of his pinball purge to make room for more kids toys.

hahahhahha. He won't admit it, but yes....or Vans for the kids...

#14502 1 year ago
Quoted from epthegeek:

An actual good deal? WTF is this shit?!

Ha. Yeah I’m not out to gouge people. For the most part I tend to sell for what I have into them. It’s a hobby for me. Not a business. Most of the time I get screwed since it’s not really reciprocated when you go to buy things. Everyone thinks they own gold.

Quoted from northvibe:

hahahhahha. He won't admit it, but yes....or Vans for the kids...

Ha. F That. I’d throw those toys away first. I’d actually rather trade so I don’t have to stare at an empty space in the basement.

Haha, yep. One episode of Pawn Stars and their Tri Zone is suddenly worth $3,500 on CL.

Buy from Chris with confidence. He is honest, and straight forward however may try to steal your sys11 games

Anyone here know Pinsider bonscot69 of Green Bay, WI?

He has an ad up in the Classifieds but hasn't been seen on Pinside since July 10th.
I responded to his ad, but not surprisingly I didn't hear back.
If you know him, maybe you could mention another Pinsider was trying to reach him.
Thanks.

Happy Thursday all! If anyone is interested in a F-14 or Firepower, PM me.

#14509 1 year ago

I've got a Spanish Eyes I'm looking to sell also. Rough cab, back panel on the cab might need replacement, doesn't have a backbox back panel either. Backglass is also rough, BUT everything has been gone through and it plays like a champ. Very snappy and fast. PF and plastics are in good shape. I would consider this a semi-project. Let me know if interested.

Popping in here to introduce myself. New to the forum, and as of last weekend new to owning a pin! I already have a feeling that number two won’t be far behind...

Welcome Hairball

Going to loan my JP Pro to my Brother for a while see if He likes it.

Quoted from Hairball:

Welcome, and as long as you like playing, number two won't be far off, that is correct.

One is just basement bar decoration. Non-pinheads need just one to go with their pool table and dart board they'll rarely use either.

But a player gets bored with one. Depends what game, of course, but one craves variety.

It is possible to hold at two, I can say from experience. I had just two from 1992 to 2008. Then the dam burst! (But 36 is back down to 12 anyway... hard to keep so many working!) (Waiting on #13, R&M!)

You picked the best hobby, have fun!

Welcome. I remember telling my wife what the perfect 4 game collection would be. Then I sold the pool table to take it to 10. Not sure what happened after that but am around 25 right now.

Especially if you have incandescent bulbs! Yikes that will do a number on your electric bill to use for your main heat source.

In the summer I only turn games on in the spare bedrooms when I'm in there playing. Keeping them on for a few hours and temperature rises quickly and I have mixed LED games in there.

I was the same way. There was 4 games I wanted when I started. That was it. Now i have 35? ish and none of them are those initial 4.

#14543 1 year ago

My wife bought our first two when she and some friends went to an operator that was selling games (I had to work). Then the next time we did a warehouse raid she made me buy 13 more! Between us and our friends we got 40 that day. Who am I to say no.
My count got as high as 45 ish. Now have downsized to 25 ish.

#14548 1 year ago

I bought my first, then two weeks later ended up with a second, then a month later, ended up with a 3rd. After some room swapping, now the basement is as full as it can get, and I still have a little nook to watch movies and play video games. My wife has been the one to assert that we clear that little nook out to fit 5 more, but I told her I need my hidey hole to watch and play all the things the kids can't see. That may or may not change in the future
