I currently own a TSPP and I’m looking to add a second pin to my collection. What would be a good game that would offer me something different in terms of gameplay?

TWD is a great contrast to TSPP

Metallica. Quick fun shooting non mode based game so it’s a nice contrast.

Infinite possibilities... it’s true.

You need to find a location with some games and start playing. Find one that speaks to you and run with it.

I’m a big fan of Metallica for all the reasons you suggested.

Simpsons can be a long game, so you should get something fast and brutal to compliment it. Metallica is a good one for sure. I recently played a TWD Premium and had a super good time with it as well. Have you played Iron Man?

I have not played IM. I might have to find one to try.

Dialed in. Its a fast pin that’s a lot of fun. It also has a lot of the newest features on pins like 3 lcd screens. Everyone that plays walks away smiling

Something fast. Ironman/Avatar

DI is definitely a fun game, and a good replacement for TSPP, but not a good complement to it.

I'd say some solid state classics would be a good complement in that they have shorter ball times and are very easy to learn.

Iron Man is a very fun very fast game with a straightforward, simple ruleset and would probably pair very well if you're looking for something newer.

TNA would work very well if you want a NIB game.

I had a WPT paired with TSPP as my only two pins for five years. They went well together.

I paired my TSPP with AC/DC! Games can be fast but code is still deep so keeps you interested which is important in a small collection.

#15 5 months ago

AFM or AFMr. Super fast and fun. It would pair nicely with TSPP.

#16 5 months ago

IM is the polar opposite of TSPP, so they'd pair nicely, but perhaps MET would be more general 'fun' to play for everyone.

#18 5 months ago

WOZ, DILE, MET, and (soon) TNA have all worked for me, paired with my TSPP!

#19 5 months ago

First, TSPP right now is "my last game to go" in my collection. If you have not already, get a color DMD for TSPP. Really makes a difference.

I agree on a speed game.

Get a few classics instead. Get a Flash Gordon, Paragon, Skateball, and Stars for the price of a newer Stern and thank me later. Or if they really aren't your thing I agree with Iron Man or TNA as something different. My favorite Stern is Star Trek and might be a good choice also. If you want something fast with amazing flow and fun modes, look no further. In my opinion, it just might have the best flow of all pins period!

#21 5 months ago

I have a Ghostbusters Prem and a TSPP and like the combination. GB is an ass-kicker for sure. The game is polarizing, but I think it is really fun when dialed in properly. Unfortunately, that is usually not the case on location. There will be at least one more code update, so hopefully it will keep getting better.

#22 5 months ago

Look for a game with a simpler rule set and more flow. I made the mistake of pairing a LOTR with my Hobbit. Rules were done by the same programmer and hence, they have a very similar feel, besides the theme (but they do look nice next to each other). I soon found that I didn't want to go from playing one to the other. Instead, I looked for a game with a different feel. So, my advice is go for a different designer and programmer. Don't be put off by simple rules. I just restored a 1976 Close Encounters that I am donating and I'll miss that game. It's fun to just go for a high score nailing drop targets and ripping a spinner instead of trying to progress towards an elusive Wizard mode.

TNA hands down

#24 5 months ago

Data East Simpsons.

#25 5 months ago

I have my TSPP paired with LOTR. The game play of the two is very different, but they are both fantastic immersive games that represent the theme well.

I realize both can be longer games, but you can adjust the rules in LOTR to make it a bit harder without being too punishing. I changed TTT multiball so you have to light each lock and that makes it more challenging. As well, I reduced the extra balls.

#26 5 months ago

I would say a more fast/flowy game. Can't go wrong with a Steve Richie game in that category. Take your pick.

#28 5 months ago

Please consider Stern Star Trek. All of a sudden people seem to forget how fast, flowy, awesome, and beautiful this game truly is over the latest and greatest thing.

#29 5 months ago

No doubt! It's a total joy to shoot.

Data East Simpson’s! How is that not on the list

#31 5 months ago

Stern Star Trek would be a great neighbor for your TSPP.

#32 5 months ago

The only reason I'd recommend against Star Trek is that it, like Simpsons, can be a pretty long game. Something faster and more difficult would be good for those times when you don't have a ton of time for a marathon game. If that's not a concern, then Trek's a great choice.

#33 5 months ago

I have a Tspp paired with a Met and AC/DC. Both are very different to a Tspp and go very well with it

#34 5 months ago

I own tspp. Imo you'll need something fast and furious to compliment it. As mentioned above I also recommend....
Met
Twd
Im
