Bought 2, sold none in 2020! Thinking of selling 1 and hoping to add 2 in 2021!
Took delivery of R&M, but I ordered that in 2019, does that count?
Other than that, zero change....but I moved, so that was ALL OUT & ALL IN. That was months ago & I’m still in pain. Never want to do that again.
Fun story - I got 15 of them in a PODS moving container, but I didn’t strap them well enough & forgot the truck would be going up hill. 6 or 7 games tipped slightly, and pinned the door completely shut. I had no idea what to do, but noticed the roof of the pod was attached with giant screws. I removed them & slid the roof partially aside. I jumped in & somehow adrenaline strengthed each tipped game up one by one in 100+ heat. Eventually I got them all up & was able to open the door from the inside & get out.
Never again. If I ever move again, I’m selling it all lol
In: GNR LE, Robotron cocktail (NIB - grail vid wl bonus of unboxing AND bringing back to life because the AA’s installed at the factory in 1984 didn’t exactly age well). Also: upgraded my homemade Virtual Pin to 4K 120 Hz screen and Nvidia 3080.
Out: TNA, R&M pre-order spot, Big Lebowski pre-order. (Sold TNA to make room for R&M; then GNR swooped in and stole its spot. Was planning to sell WOZ to make room for TBL, but the kids asked me to keep it).
Got a free Sure Shot, fixed it and gave it to my Aunt and Uncle. Sold my BK2k to raise some money for a Scared Stiff (My wife’s grail game). Got a free Slugfest and traded that along with my Star Trek Pro for TNA(my grail game). Picking up a Bobby Orr and a Frontier next week. Pinball wise, 2020 has been pretty good.

Quoted from LesManley:
Hmm, good question. It was a slow year since I really like where my collection's at. Let's see...
Jurassic Park Pro
Star Trek Pro
Gone But Not Forgotten...
I had no intentions of selling Ghostbusters but I was made an offer that I couldn't refuse. getting that much for Ghostbusters allowed me to get Star Trek and Jurassic Park so it was a win-win.
I may have spoken too soon. I'm already one game over max but I've been offered to get a WrestleMania back for a fantastic price so I couldn't resist. It won't make it for 2020 but it will start off 2021 on the right foot.
Sold: Dr Who, Devil Riders, Shaq, Heavy Metal Meltdown, Nugent, and a virtual pin.
Bought: Transformers Pro, Vegas/Hoops.
Traded: BOP for Nine Ball
I also got a Fathom playfield swap done, thanks to working from home nearly every day this year. Only took me 5 years to finish that one. LOL.
This year I swear I will finish my last game in the restore que, High Speed. I started it 7 years ago!Added 24 days ago:
Forgot that I also bought a Firepower II.
Out of boredom and curiosity I’ve worked up a spreadsheet with everyone’s numbers. Exactly how many in and out is “several”?
I’ll share my results in a couple days.
