In the Fall of 1995, as I ascended upon the campus of the University of Nebraska, I discovered a little arcade in the Student Union. Here I mastered the art of Tekken 2, Killer Instinct 2, Soul Blade, and many other fighting games... but it was also here where I finally found my love for pinball. There were three pinball machines, Who Dunnit, Attack from Mars, and (I THINK) a Demolition Man. When I wanted a break from the fighting games, I would play Who Dunnit and Attack from Mars constantly.
Fast forward 25 years, and I've just recently moved into my "forever home" with enough space to finally begin my collection.
Our first pin was a family focused pin, a Stern Munsters Premium B&W. Very happy with this one, because it made my wife fall in love with pinball (which is great because she has no idea that an Attack from Mars LE is coming for her birthday )
I was determined to find a good quality Who Dunnit just to feed my nostalgia and appreciation for where my love truly began. I have been keeping my eye out for several years, and have probably looked or played five different W?D hoping to find that one. Two weeks ago, while I was sick, I happened to find this "Great Quality, re-worked" W?D and thought I'd drive the 50mi to see if it would be worth it.
I was blown away at the quality of this machine. While the cabinet still needs a bit of work (one decal has some serious sun bleaching while the other side is near mint), the playfield and under the hood were in amazing shape. I bought it on the spot. This perfect find has a ton of work already done to it, but still has some areas I hope to improve (and learn from). I'm so excited that I now have a W?D that plays great, but also has some good potential to tinker.
I'm now happy to finally join the Who Dunnit club here on Pinside!
