    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.

    This has been brought up in the past. Shades of the old Heathkit Pinball days.

    Only thing I would add is you do your own tech support too.

    Disclaimer : I'm still hoping for a self cleaning playfield.

    Quoted from Tommy-dog:

    Some of us are more than qualified to assembly a game from parts and troubleshoot. I like the kit idea because I can get the bare playfield clear coated before assembly.

    I agree.

    Unfortunately what I deal with daily in tech support. The mere thought of it gives me the willies. I believe the qualified are too few in numbers.

    Disclaimer : I hope the person doing this doesn't mix up the "y" and "e" in the instructions.

    Quoted from adol75:

    Insurance for what ?

    When someone builds their game. Plugs it in. And burns their house down. Their home owners insurance will be looking to the manufacturer of this kit to get their money back after they build a new house.

    Quoted from adol75:

    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.

    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.
