    I value many types of pinballs, and I feel that with a smaller collection it is best to have a good variety of pins for the owner and guests.

    What would you recommend for a collection of 5 pins? I am mostly looking for styles (e.g. one system 11, one jjp, one EM, one vintage stern, one dmd, etc.), but if you have suggestions for specific games, that would be fine too.

    Quoted from Pinball_Gizzard:

    I was thinking of working towards a “best of” small collection. Best System 11. Best DMD, best rules, best art, best EM, best modern, whatever categories you like.

    What do you consider the best in those categories?

    Quoted from PW79:

    OP your post reminds me I have the EXACT lineup I want
    I hope you can accomplish a lineup that does the same for you
    (of course I’d like to expand my collection but not replace any part of it)
    Make it 6

    I currently own a jurassic park, champion pub, LOTR, judge dredd, and paragon.
    I have a stern meteor as well, but it is technically sold (awaiting pickup)

    Early ss
    Williams system 11 game
    Golden era dmd game
    Tough playing stern (2000 or newer)
    Newer boutique pinball company pin (JJP, spooky, American)

    As an alternate, I might switch out the early ss for an EM

    I think this would be my ultimate top 5:

    Flash Gordon
    Monster Bash

    Quoted from Hayfarmer:

    I had the thought of a variety of games to keep me interested too, but after playing an em then metallica or maiden or acdc, ems were too slow in my opinion. Cool artwork, but I like the faster games. I have a sinbad ss, rfm, and 4 new games, so still a variety

    I will admit that i like certain games better than others, but variety keeps my interest more long term.

    Quoted from adol75:

    5 is a good number, I would love to have 5 in my gameroom.
    I would do :
    - 1 deep, stop and go game : WOZ or TSPP
    - 1 no brainer fun shooter : MM or AFM
    - 1 Steve Ritchie : STTNG
    - 1 Pat Lawlor : DI (by far!)
    - 1 Classic licensed SS : TAF (by far too !)

    What do you have?
