    $1500 is generally always my budget max, with the exception of JP, which I paid $1650 for.

    For $1500, quite a lot of games are available to you, despite what you may believe. And if you are okay with the idea shopping out a game, You can get a decent deal for $1500. Pretty much all System 11 games are on the table at $1500, most DE games, and some earlier SS games for even less.

    My vote would be a good clean working Pinbot or a working JP if you can find one at that price.

    Quoted from TheOnlyest:

    Where the hell do you shop??? Could you please direct me to the $1500 Black Knight 2000, Funhouse, Diner & Cyclone? I have cash in hand!

    Funhouse isn't a Sys11.

    There are a ton of pins within NJ, PA & NY, so I have that advantage. But I've picked up every game I've previously owned for $1500 or less.

    Quoted from snyper2099:

    You need to go to a show/gathering/tournament to determine what YOU like.

    This. One man's idea of the best pin is another's idea of a crappy one. Don't go by the rankings here, play games and find out.

    Even childhood favorites can sometimes pan out to be less fun than what you remembered.

    Quoted from azpinguy:

    I have to agree that $1500 is really tough to find a decent working DMD in the southwest... NF? TFTC? T2? -not since 2005 IMHO... Those at at least $2500 even in beater condition. F14 is in that price range, and is fun, with no DMD. Also possibly Dr Dude.

    I realize how lucky I am living where I do. Unfortunately, it's about the only redeeming quality for living in NJ.

    Indeed, I stand corrected. Let me rephrase... Please direct me to the $1500 BK2K, Diner & Cyclone!
