1. Earliest pinball memory?
   Perth Royal Show when I was small , lots and lots of OLD machines that were getting the coins flowing , all those EM , shooting , helicopter games were brilliant EM era was imaginative and it rocked
2. All time favorite pin? Why?
   Gilligan's Island , just one I always remember with a glad heart and luckily own one and most people who play are surprised that they enjoy it
3. Favorite pinball manufacture?
   ALL manufacturers are brilliant in my view as they all bring joy to someone , somewhere at sometime - BLESS YOU ALL 
4. Favorite game in your collection? Why?
   Giiligan's as it does,t seem to stop and has that great music and catch phrase of JUNGLE RUN ! simple , fun and addictively hard to get the Island Treasure through Kona
5. How long have you been collecting?
   Bought first pin 2001 ( GTB 1971 ) in 1995 for my housewarming to stop people getting too smashed , but not really till last year when I got crook and met some great people
6. First game and how did you find it?
   2001 EM by GTB , driving past a house in WA noticed the shape under u rug in carport and eventually got it for $150 BBBBAAAARRRGGGAAAAIIIINNN  ^^^ full story somewhere in forum
7. Do you still have it?
   Yes it need restoring , I will start when I get my Space Station back up and running , see my AVATAR !  ^&^
8. What are you currently working on?
   Space Station and already have blown it up ( good job of it too ) , some good guys from WA are helping me out , cheers  ^^^ I am told everyone does it at some stage
9. Most wanted game to add to your collection?
   anything SURF related or Party Zone to go with DR Dude
10. Best all time bargain game added to your collection?
    see answer 6 , firkin bargain and a great game to boot
11. Worst ever miss – tell us about the one that got away!.
    It might be happening as I respond to this questionnaire , don't think I can scrape the coin that is asked to get this one my eye is on ? Pleas pinball gods , smile upon me please ( freight to WA kills )
12. Worst ever purchase – tell us about the game you wished you never bought.
    Hmmm , from a so called reputable pinball retailer in Vic , cost me a small fortune to get a manual and schematic for an EM and all I got was the coin chute drawings and a operation card -- pppfffftttt  !!!
13. Describe your collection
    Trying to cover the Eras as it appeals to all my mates , family and any age - bloody good fun and not serious themes
14. Describe your games room
    My house is my games room !
15. Do you have other games other than pinball?
    Love my PS3 and pinball simulators , also have some of the first handheld games , bloody rippers too
16. Where can you see the hobby in 10 years?
    Hopefully a bit more mainstream and back in the public more as all these beautiful machines should not be kept unplayed in storage

Thanks for reading  @@*

"My house is my games room !"

Classic !

I've heard of homes being over run with pinball machines, but I've never actually seen a house full of pins.
