Do you think any of you married guys can get away with this?

I'm having a party this Friday. Golf course in my backyard, ping pong table on my back deck, pool table, 3 pinball machines and Robotron.

All I need now are some strippers...

You know, people that take the paint off your house before you repaint it.

Speaking of strippers, something tells me there should be more protection between those pinball legs and that hardwood floor.

I actually have little pieces of cardboard under the feet. Thanks for being concerned.

If anyone is in San Diego, you're welcome to come to the party this Friday... john@mccarthy.net

Wait just a second...you've got mini golf in your back yard and a living room full of games and a speed bike, but you went cheap and used scrap cardboard to protect your floors? It probably works a lot better than those little wool felt stick-on things, but it just seems funny that you have all that fancy stuff and use simple technology to protect your floors.

Well the pinball machines are not permanent. I will sell them after the party. Cardboard works fine for now.

The story goes: I was going to buy a pool table for my front entrance area. It was $500 and I only wanted to pay $250 for it. So they guy said "How about I throw in these 3 pinball machines for free?"

So for $500 I got a pool table and 3 pinball machines. I could sell each machine for $500 easily. I could probably sell the High Speed pinball machine for $1200 according to the pinball database.

I didn't really want the machines, but as a package deal they were totally worth it.

This is the secret tool I use to get all my deals:

http://www.wildjohn.com

I put it as my homepage, then pounce on deals as soon as I open my browser.

I've found some killer deals on pressure washers after reading your stuff about CL john. The thing that sucks is there's a watering ban in effect around here right now and they're handing out fines to anyone washing their car or pressure washing their property.

Bought all 3 machines + a pool table for $500. Sold 2 of them 10 minutes ago for $1000. Still have the pool table and "High Speed" pinball.

So basically I got paid $500 to take a pool table and a pinball machine.

You always get lucky reselling craigslist junk. You're geographically lucky though, being in San Diego you have tens of thousands of people looking at your listing almost immediately when you post something there. My town has 180 people. I'd bet only 50 or 60 of them actually own a computer, and even fewer of them are internet subscribers.
