I'm looking for thoughts on a pin to put into a break room. The facility have 10-20 employees working at a time, mostly of a younger age due to the nature of the industry so I will want something that will appeal to them. Most people I talk to between 21-35 need something modern like a Stern to hold their attention. Looking to spend $5,000-7500, don't want NIB. Vote above.

How long are these breaks that Hobbit is one of the options?

30 Minutes to an hour at a time.

AFM. It's a quick game for a novice when set up tight and super addictive. Perfect game to play on a lunch break.

My boss has a pin he changes out every year at the company office. There is a pinball contest with the winner announced at the company Christmas party every year with a cash prize. So far the pins have been an Avengers, a Star Wars LE, and a Deadpool LE. Last year at the end of the year the Star Wars LE was donated to Walter Reed Hospital.

You will likely find a lot of interest at first, that tapers off with 2 or 3 people battling each other for the high score over the course of the year.

Even if the end of the year prize is just a stuffed animal or something silly, a little competition can go a long way.

Most people are not pinball people, so I'd recommend AFM, MB, or Guardians. Younger people (I fit your target demographic) won't care about the theme in Munsters, or the old people bands. I have (and love) a Hobbit, but the ball times are long and that's a difficult game to explain to non-pinball people.

After writing all that up, I'd recommend AFM (also had one and loved it).

I voted for Munsters because you're going to want a game with short ball times

Put in two system 11 pins, like Pinbot and Taxi.

All I can say is, I need a new job!!!!!!!!!!!
Pinball machines in the work place, nobody at those places should ever be able to say, my job sucks!!!!!!!
I agree with wayout440 . This way games are fast and others will get to play as well.

AFM. Super easy to figure out, quick turnover, and a wide appeal theme.

I think AFM is an excellent theme for people who enjoy cannabis.

I didn’t want to prejudice the voting but I was leaning towards AFM from the beginning.
