A QUICK NOTE REGARDING COMPLAINTS/REVIEWS, SINCE SOME PEOPLE
CALL AND ASK ABOUT THEM BEFORE ORDERING
Hello Folks! Before the fun of seeing all our fun toys, may I address something openly? I've sold, literally, thousands of games in the last 35 plus years, with very few issues. I hope common sense dictates we would not be here still if we didn't satisfy 99% of our clients. I’ve had a few calls from people who wanted to order, but also wanted me to address a couple negative “reviews” that are floating around out there (there are good one’s too...they are at the bottom)! I'm so grateful that each time I explained what happened, the few that have asked did order from us. I thought I would just openly put it out here on our site. We certainly have nothing to hide, and it's totally fair that people ask. Service is really, really important. You might need your game fixed 5, 10 or 20 years from now and you have to trust who you buy from.
I think one complaint is too many, but know we really do try! One ended up being an attempt at a scam, but there is sits so I have to address it. I know people are busy, so let me just briefly address them…if you have seen them, you will likely know which response goes with which comment, and I have addressed them on the web sites they reside, along with free remedies that none have taken us up on.
A gentleman claims we would not service his game, and that we sell “old broken down junk.” If we did, I wonder how he would know that since his game was brand new. And yes, if a client wants a vintage game, restored by us, it's used by nature but it's also what they asked for. We don't even know who this gentleman was, but we replied to the post at a general review site I was unaware of. We offered to replace the board, but he never contacted us. If you've seen the "review", you’ll see all this. Saying we sell “old broken down junk”, we suspect it’s a troll posting. But still, it has concerned a few people and I felt we should address it.
We were all set to go repair a woman’s considerably out of warranty game at no charge as it was relatively close by (Monument). The morning of the service call, I asked for her address as I knew they had moved since we delivered the game. I was told she wouldn’t be there, but that her kids would be. We have a strict policy that we will not enter a home if a parent isn’t present. I would think this would be appreciated! She got very, very off the charts angry, and I suggested maybe we should reschedule for when it was convenient for her, as we want an adult home if there are children present. I won't go any further as I think you all get the point (especially if you have kids), but I did ask that she get hold of us when she would be home, and we would come out and take care of her. She never called, and instead posted a negative review the next day. Really? I go into all the details at the complaint site if you feel you want more detail. Despite this, I have offered in the open to send her a brand new board with easy instructions how to install it, so neither of us would be uncomfortable with my coming after all this. I never heard back.
A few years ago we shipped a high end pinball to someone; it had extensive custom upgrades. Without going into all the details, in the end he claimed he wasn’t happy. Some of pinball restoration involves cosmetic elements, which can be subjective. I understand this so we DO have a return policy. Trouble was, he was in another state. Not only did he state that he had expected a "better than new" game, he also wanted a refund before sending the game back ($14,995), plus he didn't give us a chance to even address issues that I frankly was very suspect of. It just didn't feel right, based on my experience, and it felt like we were being scammed. This is why I prefer not to ship very expensive games. And sure enough, he filed a dispute with his card company immediately without giving us the game back. We ultimately were not scammed, since he wasn't willing to return it, so of course the dispute was denied. There was no risk to him…had he sent it back and we had not refunded him, he still could have filed a dispute and would have received a refund after proving he shipped it back. This makes no sense to me unless his intention was to acquire the game for free. He wrote a scathing review, and there it sits. Nothing we can do.
So, after over 30 years, those are the only negative comments I'm aware of, and I will not be insulted in the least if you find something else I'm not aware of and ask that I address it. If it's legitimate, I'll certainly confess to it. We're not perfect, but I'm not aware of an instance where myself, or a member of my team, were not successful in repairing a game bought from us. I have two people who do in home service so clearly this is an important issue to us. Please know this: we have the staff and resources to take care of any service issues. You have our promise we will absolutely take care of you, no matter what a minority may say on a complaint site. Anyone can say anything they want,; it can be frustrating if you care about your business!
Here are a just a few positive reviews/comments
that were emailed or posted lately; I don't do
social media (just too busy) so we don't request reviews
or comments...these just happened to come in:

Awesome! Very excited for the update on getting our second game. Also the multi game unit continues to be a hit with our family and friends. Had family in town from Pennsylvania this week and kids and grown ups were in the basement gaming all day. It’s been a great purchase.

I contacted John, seeing an advertisement, hanging on a Restaurant wall. I was looking for an old time pinball machine from the 90's. He took the time to listen to what I was looking for and had a virtual pinball system that had just became available. I knew nothing about the virtual systems and he took the time to educate me and we upgraded the system he had suggested. He worked with my budget and went above and beyond what my expectations were. Instead of one older machine, I received a VR pinball machine with over 500 games that date from the 70's to the late 2000's. With the upgraded visuals and sound system installed, it's hard to tell the difference. It looks and feels like the real thing. John puts no pressure on you and educates you every step of the way. He makes no changes until you authorize It. Updates you on the work he is doing and when to expect the machine. I was 100 % satisfied. John is truly an expert in his field.

Amazing John!! You knocked this out of the park. I can’t even begin to tell you how thankful I am that I got this from you. It looks and plays amazing! It honestly looks like it just came out of the box. WE have been playing it none stop since it arrived and it is now my favorite of all the games in my house. Thank you so much for doing such a spectacular job on this.
Just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you again for our pinball machine. It has now been 3 years since we received it and we still love it. The machine looks great and still works fantastic. There have been a few issues arise with it, after all it is over 30 years old now, but i do appreciate how you have always been quick to respond and help us get the issues corrected. Thank you again for your help walking us through the machines, helping us to pick one out and getting it to our home. We very much appreciate your help.
