You’re bitten by the bug: you must possess a game of your own! Where should you get a pinball machine?
Here are some great suggestions from PBDG supporter and expert Tanio Klyce.
- Figure out which game you want. Go to the Pacific Pinball Museum or another collection and explore. See what you most enjoy playing. Or browse the Internet Pinball DB site.
- Decide if you want to restore the game yourself, or purchase a machine that is in good shape already.
For EM games, PBDG supporter Wade Krause may have your machine.
T Minus One is another well respected and reliable source for pins. Give them a call and see if they have your game. Chat with Chris Kuntz, the head tech. Super guy.
If you want a project, check out craigslist.
- How much will it cost? Mr Pinball Price Guide is a good resource to learn about price ranges. So are the Mr. Pinball Classifieds. You can also refer to pinballeric.com’s Price Guide.
- Get flipping.
