I have banned myself from buying any more machines (at least whilst I still have any bandits, which is a problem because I cannot bring myself to sell any of them :cry: ), but I must admit to drooling a bit over some of the machines sold at this auction. The urge to buy was very strong when I saw those Payramids.... the wife locked me in a dark room until I recovered.

Are you saying you won't buy any more machines until you've sold your bandits? !PUZZLED!
How many bandits have you?

Hi, BP.

Not many. 11, with two on the sick list (a Hi-top and an Arcadian), but I have lost interest in them, at least for the time being. Maybe in the Summer, or next year, or sometime.... Trouble is, I can't bring myself to sell them! Personally, I much prefer the allwins but the bandits take up so much space that it is pointless even thinking about buying any more (even if I had the cash - prices are daunting at the moment). They would just join the others on the conservatory floor. The wife really is less than impressed....

I sympathise, I don't have a preference really, so long as it takes a coin and I regularly lose I'm happy.

However it's my wall machines that are stacked, I only have two Bryans on the wall and 19 assorted wall machines stacked against each other on the floor. While my 9 bandits plus those in sick bay (Governor - Hi-top Bonus - Columbia Groetchen - Mills Extraordinary - Jennings Galaxy - Goliath Crane) are on proud display.
Hang on, I'm missing some here ..... !PUZZLED! Oh yes I forgot the Stims and Buckley Crane.

It seems to me the issue is your SWMBO.
When I moved in I garnered permission to display the ones she liked, in the back room.
Four years later and it's only the bathroom and the kitchen that still remain machineless ( I don't think steam should be allowed close to machines, do you).

By the way this is only a small workers' late 19th Century cottage.
We have more room now the pinball's gone though.

Perhaps you have children? They do take up a lot of room and their damn tiny sticky fingers get into everything, or at least, so I am told. I never contributed to procreation of humans, especially when I realised what causes them. :o

Indeed bp, you are right with the sticky fingers. It seems to be they enjoy it to put they're full hands on the chrome. And when you are a little bit short with coins and you want to play the machine and they put them already in !!RANT!!

I might not have any children (to speak of), I have however mended many machines for people whose offspring have merrily dropped/broken/stabbed with a screwdriver ......

Also I went to school with them so I know what they're like! :!?!:

I can speak with some authority on children because, and I don't admit this in public... I was one once. Thankfully I grew out of it. It was a phase I went through. I can say without doubt they are all money grabbing sadistic vultures (all except my daughter who is the best money can buy). They should certainly be banned from arcades. dirtdog

You know what
My kids are great around machines
And always have been
I told them early on
Touch them and you'll get butted by a mate of mine
