    So I have 10k to splurge on game room stuff, I've been pitching to replace some of my games I had when I first got in this hobby 8 yrs ago, also I'd like to get back to around 10 games. I'm think a whirlwind, whitewater and possibly a super chexx or a VR pin. If u had 10k how would you'll use it ..... besides investing and home upgrade lol

    Build standalone monster size arcade building short walk from my house . Fully climate controlled.

    Likely my eventual plan .

    Enjoy your upgrade . Shane

    We have a DI in our league, it's cool but I'm kinda over the crazy 9k pins

    As soon as I have 10k for my game room I’m grabbing a p3 with Heist. Then will slowly be able to upgrade in smaller chunks of cash while saving space since I have space for only 2 pins.

    I’d try to hit that sweet spot of quality and quantity. Looking at your wishlist I think I’d shoot for;

    TSPP
    Flash Gordon
    Whirlwind

    I also like to have a variety of eras on hand. I’d skip the VR pin, they do nothing for me, but that’s just me. If by some chance you have any money left over, I might shoot for a cheaper but fun EM pin like Old Chicago or a small flipper pin like 4 Million BC if you’re not totally opposed to those. That would get you to your ten and be a pretty good variety I think....

    I'd shoot for 2 used Stern pros each under 5K.

    Well there ya go then! Lol....sadly, most of the ones that come up usually need one. Tough pin to find with a decent playfield....

    Taxi, Flash Gordon. And go from there. Somehow nice taxi’s still pop up in the 2k range. If you can get a FG w/ a decent cab and bg, seeing as ya already have a hard top then boom, ya got something to keep ya busy and can certainly keep the costs down. From there? Diversify

    If there was a decent taxi for 2k around me I would buy that in a heartbeat.

    Thats what I’m doing. Wife approved. QUICK SIGN THAT DEAL RIGHT NOW!

    For $10k the best bet is a P3. You buy into the platform once, and then from then on out you’ll be able to get new game kits that only cost $1500-$2750. Plus you get to benefit from all the advancements that come to the platform, like the recently released online head to head gameplay and Bluetooth headphone support. And there’s already 4 game kits and half a dozen software games to choose from, and lots of interesting third party stuff on the horizon.

    Easy answer:

    One beatles Platinum.

    Diversify with Total Nuclear Annhilation and Baywatch!

    I’d say stock pile beef jerky, apparently that can be used as payments to lots of other Pinsiders.
