    I would totally consider a monthly maintenance service for a set fee for regular tasks like waxing, cleaning, minor maintenance.

    Quoted from Tommy-dog:

    Having the option on buying a new game as a 'kit'. You get all the parts and your assemble it yourself.

    That would be really cool... and fun !

    Quoted from PopBumperPete:

    Mike (homepin) looked in to this. insurance is the biggest hurdle

    Insurance for what ?

    Quoted from PopBumperPete:

    a pinball machine deals with Mains power, not a battery pack

    So why would that require an insurance ? One of my side hobby is to build high end audio equipment from kits, some of them are pretty big power amplifers and I don't think they come with any kind of insurance.

    Quoted from LTG:

    They, the kits don't come with insurance.
    The manufacturer carries it in case someone builds their kit and bad things happen and the manufacturer gets sued into the ground.
    LTG : )

    Sorry let me rephrase. Given the (very) cheap price of these hifi kits and since I doubt they sell more than pinballs, I dont see how they would fit an insurance cost in it.

    I mean did Ikea ever got sued for a shelf that would collapse and break someone leg ?

    Side note : I am new to the US so the joyful concept of American liability is still very hard to get.

    As I said, the concept of liability in America is very new to me, and very different to how it works in France, so the insurance on a pinball kit (or a shelf) definitely did not hit my mind.
