Yeah, that’s pretty much true. To be sure, though, the tables are working
and, from what I know, they guarantee the purchase. It a bit better than
buying off of someone you know who doesn’t have a record of repairs made.
However, you do pay for that. If you _really_ wanted a pinball machine and
it wasn’t something very recent (like the newer Sterns or Jersey Jacks,
etc.) then you’d want to hook up with a local pinball club to find sellers
and people who can work on them.

It should also be said that Pinballz is not a pay one price and play until
you drop. Every drain costs you money! ;-)
