Hey, everybody... it's time for my first pin! I have always liked pinball, but just recently became an addict, and it just so happens I'm also moving from an apartment in Washington DC near some great places to pay to a house in the suburbs in Silver Spring, MD near no good places to play. So- time to take the plunge. I've done a fair bit of research and here's what I'm looking for:
First choice would be a pin in $1,000-$2,500 range that makes the Pinside Top 100 SS List (or maybe top 150 or so). I'm OK with some cosmetic issues and not picky about the theme either, but it's got to be a well designed game that plays perfectly. I've seen a few like this in the Classified listings, but none that were in the area.
I would also consider spending more for a good deal. If you've got something more expensive that's burning a hole in your game room and you're willing to let it go at a discount, let me know. As above I'm mainly looking to play the thing, so it would have to be one that's fun to play and gets good reviews... MM, Houdini, AfM, Simpson's Pinball Party would all fit the bill.
I'm in Washington DC, willing to drive up to 3 hours to pick it up (or longer than that if it's towards or in Pittsburgh, I have family there). Definitely would want to play the game before buying it.
Let me know if anyone's got anything... I'll be psyched if you do!
