    I've seen a few of these surveys in the past and with some new machines out there wanted to see the current opinions:

    What machine(s) do you have currently or in your past collection that got the most plays from family members (wife/kids)? Specifying age of kids would be helpful.

    When my two pre-teen nieces were here a few years ago they chimp flipped for about an hour on various games and then played Rocket League the rest of the night instead. So I have no idea.

    My wife likes/liked JJPotC, BM66, Beatles, Wonka, Munsters, WoZ, EHOH, MBr, AIQ, GnR. Last night she commented how fun Oktoberfest is as well, come to think of it. Doesn't like tight shooters, understandably for someone who plays a few times a month.

    Kids. WOZ. All the way!

    Wife. Thinks my avocation is silly!

    Hot wheels for the kids. Actually, most younger kids love my EM. It plays slower which is easier for beginners and they love the real bells and chimes.

    Fish Tales is fun as well and affordable

    When my kids were Middle School to High School age, Medieval Madness and Monster Bash got the most play.

    Quoted from Vandy89:

    This. White Water and Metallica are my picks too. White Water is the coolest, and Metallica has so many bash toys. That’s really what kids love over hitting ramps.

    Monster bash

    #12 1 year ago

    We have kids and non-pinballers over at least once week. All games see consistent play, but far and away #Monster Bash is what they gravitate to. Some wont play open games while they wait to play MB.

    These kids range in age from 6 to 44.

    Most popular games for guest currently in my line up are...

    #1. Star Wars LE
    #2. TNA with external sub
    #3. Tron modded with external sub
    #4. Mandalorian LE
    #5. Led Zeppelin LE with external sub
    #6. Ghostbusters LE

    ps-when kids come over they just run around pushing buttons like headless roosters
