I've enjoyed this hobby for just over 5 years now and my wants have changed over time. I've had several really nice games, NIB and restored. I love Stern, but my last NIB game was STLE. I'm kind of on the fence about NIB right now. Since then I have added an slightly used mustang, and a well loved Johnny Mnemonic. Both are giving me just as much pleasure as my NIB. I like to be social with pinball, having people over and playing with my kids. When the games are perfect, I worry about little scratches etc. I have really enjoyed brining games to the TPF for 4 years now and find it substantially less stressful to bring my games that have a few scratches.
Despite what I wrote above, I'm currently awaiting a NIB Americas most haunted. I have no must have game after that, but have been quietly saving for and stalking a BBB for some time. I find myself unable to pull the trigger.
Maybe a Whoa Nellie, I really like it. Wife, not so much.
Please share your wants and whys.
