Pinball has been in our lives for over 40 years.  Growing up as kids, we were lucky enough to have pinball machines in our home, including Atlantis, Volley, Home Run and Grand Prix along with the ground-breaking game Black Knight.  We didn’t know how to fix them, so we learned.  As any pinball owner will tell you, it’s not a matter of if your game will have an issue, but when.  We find fixing games to be almost as fun playing them.

It has been awesome to witness the revival of pinball over the last few years, and like an addiction, our collection has grown tremendously.    We purchased a NIB Simpsons Pinball Party in 2003, followed by a Dr. Who.  Both games remained in our home until 2012.  We sold Dr. Who, but then the fun started and we accumulated a number of games, including Lord of the Rings, Scared Stiff, Ironman VE, Baywatch, Indiana Jones (93), Star Trek: The Next Generation, The Walking Dead Premium, Twilight Zone, the Sopranos, The Addams Family, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, The Avengers, X-Men, Ripley’s Believe it or Not and High Speed 2.  While the Dr. Who left, we still have that TSPP today, looks and plays as good as the day it came out of the box.  Who knows what games will make their way into our lives in the future, but we have yet to play a game we didn’t like…It’s Pinball!

We hope the next decade is as fun and exciting as the previous…
