    Well, that sucks.

    Is there a national paintball day or something? If so we need to declare it.

    ^Haha, paintball...

    I've never liked pinball as a game, but I've always been fascinated by the design and look of the cabinets.

    I love pinball. Long time ago the GF and I decided when we finally have a game-room we are putting at least one pinball machine and one arcade cabinet in it at some point.

    I don't think there's a holiday for pinball though. Google comes up with nothing on the first page at least. And no one looks past the first page.

    Never cared for Pinball, but I just played the Marvel pinball on PS3 and it was pretty fun. At least I beat Brett's score HAHA

    At my house, we have a pinball machine and a galaga/ms Pac Man machine in our game room (and a pool table, dartboard, and big TV).

    My dad is so good at pinball.

    I wish! The worst part is that I get relegated to my crappy old PS3 while they use the Slim. #nonparentsjustdon'tunderstand

    I was told there is still a state that have pinball illegal for being a gambling machine. Because of a bureaucratic mishaps back in the 1950's i was told.

    But i do know they they stop mass producing pinballs recently. And it's sad cause it's a really fun machine... Spend the best of my quarters on those.
