Quoted from WackyBrakke:
My problem is I had room for 5 and liked them all and didn't have any I wanted to sell, but I wanted more. So I made room for 10, then same issue, i liked them all and wanted more. Now I have room for 15.......When will it end???
My best guess is money, boredom, or other interests.
My story. I got a game. Then 2,3,4,5...10. I ran out of room. I was upstairs so I got an escalera. I moved and built a detached game room. I could have whatever I wanted, within reason. Ultimately I decided 10-14 was my max. I wanted a nice work room and a nice space for leasure and friends. When all was said and done I realized that I had spent a small fortune on the game room, excluding the valuable games inside. At some point, for all of us, it becomes about value. The only difference is the number of zeros in your budget. I am fortunate to have nice things. I decided that 10-14 was enough, if not too much.
I enjoy the $300 smoker on the porch of that game room just as much as my much more expensive pinballs inside.
