Do you remember the first time?

Which PCB popped your cherry? My first purchase was The Simpsons and Bad Dudes from Raven at a price I'd laugh at myself for now.

I bought Double Dragon from RGP to test out my first cab (a Windy)... and ended up buying Final Fight from him at the same time! Great boards...

Mines boring too. Just a one slot with various games. First actual PCB was Shinobi. A bit crap when you actually own it. But was the game I wanted most before I did!!

Poolchamp I still want a dedicated Kung Fu Master. For me it probably is the best game of all time, for its time of release its fab! Hard as you like and still playable today. Me loves that game :D

The game I really wanted when I started this hobby was Crazy Kong.

My first purchase was an original Sega Choplifter from Craig @ giz10p.co.uk for £45, and a JAMMA adapter for £15.

Absolute bargain basement stuff, and I remember Craig not allowing me to plug the pcb into the cab until I'd bought a multimeter.

The drive from Barnsley to Maplins at Leeds at 4;30pm was probably one of the worst drives of my life.

Also the JAMMA adapter is a work of art!!!

First commercial purchase was a Tekken 3 PCB direct from Brent Sales (Avoid these guys like the plague) for the shop, cost an arm and a leg. My first personal purchase however was an old woody cab with 3 boards, Golden Axe, Eswat and WWF Wrestlefest. They just don't make games like that any more :P
