Couple of examples
We bought our Twilight Zone from a local Operator off route for $1900.00. The local "Home Game Room" is asking $4500.00 for theirs.
We paid $500.00 for our Fish Tales pin out of a guys garage. The local store recently found some fool that gave them $3495.00 for theirs.
We had a weak moment and paid $3000.00 for our Monster Bash pin and that place wants $5200.00 for one just like it.
Yeah, CraigsList, call local Operators about games they have on location - go anywhere EXCEPT to that nearby retail Game Room store.
If your machines are even just in OK condition you paid less than market for even the MB. Book is $4000 + on that game.
Also check; rec.games.pinball for a machine near you.
PS; Family Guy is one of the best new Sterns out there. You can also reprogram it to sound like Shrek.
