silverball mania

Post Author: Gman » Thu Sep 29, 2016 11:35 am

I found a SBM in the local Craigslist. I am toying with the idea of buying it. I have one I bought years ago (cheap) and is in pieces, with a worn playfield. It also has a couple weIrd solder jobs under the playfield. I have never played it and the reviews on it are not good it seems to have a boring play, basicilly shoot for the horse shoe, repeat. I was thinking of converting mine into a mini-bar or mounting the backglass and PF as art in the mancave. I guess the best part of this machine is the artwork.

I remember playing that machine as a kid. From what I remember it was a fun machine...but heck, I was a kid and everything was fun. Having never owned a real pinball machine I can't see how any one wouldn't get boring after playing it for a few 100 times. If it is a reasonable price and you can perhaps use some of the parts from the first machine to justify the first machines purchase then I say go for it.
These are my opinions and just because I am the admin you don't have to agree with me
