Lotr, tspp and similar titles are great pins for sure ....just not my cup of tea. Your right lotr is totally opposite of twd

Thanks! Played LOTR a lot today. Wanted one for awhile. This one just kind of fell in my lap and I couldn't say no despite the GB just getting here. At some point one or two will have to go but for now I'm enjoying them.

Undocumented home use only close encounters

On the way back from CLEVELAND with this beauty. Name the game!

#3377 3 years ago

Sorry if this is slightly off-topic but: What does documented home use only really entail? All previous owners sign a sworn statement or something? I suppose when you know and trust the previous owner it's easy but selling across the country or globe I don't see how it's possible to 100% prove HUO.

HUO does not mean anything at all.

Even if someone has a receipt for the game, showing it was delivered to their home, that does not prove that they did not at some point put it in their uncle's bar for a few years.

First off condition is king. But to say HUO means nothing, well that's just wrong.

Documented means there is a paper trail that who you bought it from purchased it new. That coupled with inspection of the usual wear area, coin mechs, boards etc. give you a fairly good indication if it was indeed HUO. Course you can generally never tell for sure as a buyer.

As far as HUO in top condition, they command top dollar and get it. So to say HUO is meaningless is not accurate IMO.

So if I take a good condition game, put NOS coin mechs in the door, install a NOS coinbox, and print up a fake recept showing I bought it from A&S Amusements 30 years ago, you will give me top dollar?

What did PT Barnum say about suckers?

No joke. The same things can be said about reimports. It would be incredibly easy to make a reimport game look domestic and no one would ever know the difference. Some say the worth less than domestic. They can keep saying that and I will buy them instead lol. Condition is always King. Huo or not

First off there's no proof PT actually ever said that but I digress...

I didn't say I would pay top dollar. I said people pay top dollar, and they do. But go ahead and argue that point. I'm not going to since I already know the answer. And I already said condition is king but go ahead and ignore that point too.

#3388 3 years ago

I'll take the fact that the original connectors and boards are still white with no solder traces as a good idea that it hasn't been on location for someone to kill with a soldering gun to keep the cash flowing. Mind you it's close encounters and not a popular pin by any means so even if it was on location it probably just collected dust.

I have been slacking on my pinside activity as of late. I've been incredibly busy since school started back. I had to sell of a large portion of my collection to pay some bills and have been blessed to find a large number of project games to refill it. I picked up an Earthshaker, Space Shuttle, Trident, Galaxy, Doctor Who, Flash (which I traded as is to a friend for new rottendog boards and the parts I needed to fix doctor who), and a Revolution X video game. All of these were basically nonworking or semi working when I got them so at least I've had something to do. Earthshaker, Trident, and Galaxy are basically finished. The others are in line.

You can argue all you want, but if you are paying top dollar for any game because someone is telling you it's HUO, you are a fool.

Especially if it's a 90s or earlier game.

Back in the day, NO OPERATOR would ever sell a used game to the public, let alone a NIB one. Used games that could not be auctioned off to another op were simply taken to the dump. The thinking was "Hey, if people can play pinball at home, they will stop putting money in my games!".

Other than a few wealthy clients, the only people who I ever delivered NIB games to were pro athletes and pro musicians.

For the third time, I buy games based solely on condition. It just so happens that out of my current 4 games, 1 was NIB, 2 were HUO and the other routed AF. The two HUO only ones were also the best deals I got out of all the pins I've ever owned. My point was/is that HUO means something to people. I didn't say it was me.

YESSSSSSS. Brought home one of my grail pins this weekend! Haven't had a chance to start cleaning her yet, and there are a few issues with the trough optos, but she'll clean up really nicely. This one definitely fell right into my lap and it's in great shape. She'll never leave - that's for sure.20161007_165616_resized (resized).jpg20161007_165551_resized (resized).jpg
