Its High Speed for me and I still have my first love.
27 years and still counting.

ACDC Premium and I still have it.

Bought my first game in September. It is a DE Playboy 35th Anniversary. Started tinkering with low level updating and got hooked. I bought my second machine in December which was Evel Knievel. I can already tell that this hobby is eventually going to run me short on space and money. LOL

We had games growing up but Black Knight was the first I bought myself a few years back.
Sold it a month later for a hs2.

My first was a Zaccaria Queens Castle and i still have it. Bought that just over a year ago and i now have 6 machines, how does this even happen?!

Lol. I currently have 9 machines and I’m leaving within the hour to pick up a taxi. I have room for five machines, but somehow they are all set up to play with exception of a bad cats project that I broke down last night so I could move the taxi in. We have a sickness. But honestly it makes me happy and we could all have much worse vices, am I right.

I know I am not alone in the overcrowding of pinball machines. I know people that have them everywhere.

Very true Gorgar for the first machine here. Have a 13 game collection currently and have sold 23. Been a fun 4 years!

Couldnt agree more! I currently live in a small 2 bedroom flat and right now the only room without a pinball machine in is the bathroom. My partner isnt too pleased with the collapsed up Xs & Os in our main bedroom at the moment

Strange, I too have the multiplying pinball disease. Very addicting.

#115 15 days ago

The original World Cup Soccer my Dad got me and I got TFTC as my first DMD game.

#116 15 days ago

First game was Williams Grand Prix just off route, that I got as a kid in 1977. Still have it but rarely play it. First game as an adult was Williams Klondike.

#117 15 days ago

Creature from the Black Lagoon back in 2003. I traded it away in 2010, but missed it, and picked up a nicer one in 2013. That one's here to stay.

#118 15 days ago

TAF, sold it a while back to get a MB. Don’t regret it ... well, a little. They’ve gone way up in price lately!

TAF was my 2nd machine, and I also sold mine to get a MB. As fate would have it, last year I got a smoking deal on a 2nd MB machine that I sold in order to get a really nice TAF back in the lineup. The circle is now complete, and they face each other in my game room.

Pinball Magic, still got very good memories of that one. Really an unique pin.

#121 15 days ago

Police force was the first pin I bought back in 2016, I still have it and added 10 more titles to the lineup.

I see the problem, you have the head on backwards.

1957 Gottlieb Rainbow.
My father bought it for me in 1970 when I was 12.
I started fixing it when I was 13.
I still have it.
I’ll leave the house feet first before the Rainbow does.
