These beauties have now arrived to add to our spiderman - although I will have to wait until my son returns from Uni so he can replace the existing ones as I have spent a lifetime convincing the wife I am dangerous with any type of tool...bit frustrating that these will need to wait but it dos mean no DIY requests or 'jobs' to be done around the house for me - I am free to go out with my mates, watch football and play pinball ;)

Not your typical “Today I received” so apologies for the long post.

Just over two months ago I received the news I had colon cancer. Since then I’ve had major surgery to remove the tumour and I’m now on the cusp of starting chemo. It’s all happened so fast I really haven’t had time to process it yet. At the time when I got the news I was more gutted I was going to miss Pinfest that weekend, priorities and all that 😁 Well the best medicine other than the surgery was having something to look forward to, obviously I needed some new pins.

I was luckily to track down and have these two gorgeous specimens delivered today 🙂 AIQ absolutely rocks from the few games I’ve played so far, living up to the hype for a change. Embarrassingly this is the fourth WOZ I’ve owned… I have a massive soft spot for the theme and it’s in my top three games of all time. This one won’t be leaving any time soon, double jinx 🤣

Pretty sure that would have been my first thought too! 🤣

I hope the outlook is positive and the chemo goes well. Awesome new pins too. AIQ I think is my favourite game at the moment, after playing it at Flipout and Pinfest. I'm very jealous!

Sorry to hear this mate, good luck with the chemo. I’ve had 6 months of chemo so know what’s it’s like, wasn’t too bad for me even kept my hair. I shaved it off for nothing!
Get in touch if you want to talk mate👍
Enjoy the games 😎

New pin in da house.
Mando arrived today I’ve set up and managed 1 game due to famalam duties.
It’s looking gorgeous in the lineup and just needs levelling up a little so hopefully Sunday I’ll have a few plays and get a feel for the game.

Looking good Col :thumbs:

That’s the stuff I use. I got mine from Guitar place in London via Amazon.
I tried Amazon but it seems to have been unavailable for a while.

Managed to get these from EBay. A guy imported a load in as he couldn’t find a UK suppler anymore and now he sells them there.
