Back in 1990 or so, I was a Domino's delivery guy. I delivered a pizza to a house in Eden Prairie, MN USA and they had this pinball machine laying in their garage all taken apart. I asked if they wanted to sell it and they said it was their son's. They got their son and I asked him if he wanted to sell the pinball machine. He said he would and told me he wanted $25 for it. I told him I'd give him $20 and we agreed on $22.50. I wanted to teach him about how to barter. What a deal!! I got it working with a CPU board repair. It was used at my townhouse that I rented with my friends for around 3 years and then went into storage at my mothers house. One late fall, we were at my mothers and were in the garage drining beers. I decided to turn it on and it pop'ed. I think it was a bit cold and maybe blew something. It sat for another 10 years or so. I now brought it back to my house and I'm going to revive it. Currently, I need some boards. to get it going again.
The playfield is in fantastic shape but the cabinet is really banged up. The back glass is in pretty good shape as well. I can't wait to get it working again.

I started working on rebuilding or refurbishing the Alien Poker pinball machine. The first part was taking it all apart. I removed the boards and sent them to Tim Nabours from Nabours Novelty. He checked all the boards and found that the CPU board was bad. He couldn't repair the board so he sold me a replacement board.
