I played pinball in my teen years and had no idea that it really existed anymore since you rarely see them and I don't know the last time I saw an arcade. Then a year ago, my co-worker told me there were leagues and tournaments and got me hooked. I love playing and have met so many wonderful people because of this.

I got my first pin 2 days ago. It was given to me sight unseen and a couple of the guys from league picked it up for me and unfortunately found it was in rough shape and not in working order. They checked it out and told me that it would be quite a project to restore it and since I have no ability to do so, I sold it the next day. So keeping my eye out for my first actually owned and playable pin.

Hi there!

I'm Mat from France! I got the virus back now that I'm in my forties and now I have 2 pinball machines: Ice Fever - Gottlieb sys80 and Nitro Ground Shaker - Bally 1980
i'm currently developping my own arduino system to build a pinball from scratch.
