    Out of the games you've owned in the past, but do not currently own, rank them in the order you would buy them back. Obviously if your list is huge, feel free to just rank your top few and bottom few.

    1) Fish Tales
    2) Johnny Mnemonic
    3) PinBot
    4) BMX
    5) Xenon
    6) F-14
    7) Solar Ride

    Banzai Run (Still kept the better one)
    Whitewater (still have 2 so not real keen on having the third back, but it's still a great game)
    Fast Draw (Still have one of these too)
    Jackbot (the sample game sucked but would like a regular production one)
    Monopoly (it's grown on me a little since I sold this one 14 years ago)
    the rest of the games I've sold...
    Hurricane (never want this back...ever)

    #14 3 years ago

    I would buy back Diner after the CPR playfields ship and I could buy a restored one.

    #16 3 years ago

    F-14 for sure. I really regret letting it go.

    #17 3 years ago

    Bally Atlantis

    #18 3 years ago

    #20 3 years ago

    Several of the ones I missed I have already bought back: Earthshaker and Congo.

    One's I would like back:


    #21 3 years ago

    The only one is really Tri Zone, but I'd rather put that money towards a different title unless an un-passable deal popped up.

    #22 3 years ago

    TMNT (wife and kids loved it)
    Xenon (better condition next time)
    Metallica Premium (got rid of only to fund another game...wish I could have kept it.)

    #23 3 years ago

    Dirty Harry, Fish Tales, Alien Poker, Big Game

    #27 3 years ago

    Hmmm, "do not currently own" but would again... in order -->

    YES for certain...
    Star Trip with chimes
    Alien Poker
    Strikes and Spares (I'm piecing one together, part by part)

    Possibly these, condition and price depending...
    Secret Service
    Fireball Classic

    I'm such a sucker for 80's pins.

    #28 3 years ago

    I liked it but the one I had was a beater. Would love CC one

    #29 3 years ago

    ST Pro

    #30 3 years ago

    Out of the 7 in mine only High Speed in good condition or Met I would like to have back.

    #32 3 years ago

    Sorcerer - always good for a quick ride, ripping the maxed out spinners was always extremely satisfying! Really miss it!

    #33 3 years ago

    JM, such a blast, one of my first and thought I could give space for something new. But its among the very best. Big regret letting it go. It will be back. And won't leave.

    #34 3 years ago

    I'd get Bally dungeons and dragons again, it felt like it left to soon.
    I want another virtual pin, loved the last one I built, but the technology isn't at a point that makes it good enough yet. Maybe in another 5 years. I want better tv's and better table emulation.
    Don't think I'd get anything else again. F-14 was great but GoT makes up for it. The kick-back is the best part of f-14.

    #35 3 years ago

    1. Twilight Zone
    2. Tales From the Crypt
    3. Lord of the Rings
    4. Road Show
    5. Fish Tales
    6. The Walking Dead Pro
    7. Ripley's Believe it or Not
    8. Kiss Pro
    9. World Cup Soccer
    10. Party Zone
    11. Lethal Weapon 3
    12. Black Rose
    13. Full Throttle
    14. Super Mario Bros

    That was.... Easier than I expected actually! I feel pretty good about all of those rankings honestly. The top five I miss terribly, the bottom five have almost no chance of ever returning to the line up, and those in the middle are there for a reason I suppose.

    Selling TZ was a total kick in the nuts, and my only real regret of the bunch. It was insanely nice.

    #36 3 years ago

    AFM - only game ever bought twice.

    FT. But no fade, beautiful playfield.....

    #37 3 years ago

    1) Seawitch
    2) Gulfstream

    #38 3 years ago

    There are no games on my history list that I would buy again. Perhaps one day I would buy STTNG again but that would be the only possibility.

    #39 3 years ago


    Still have a lot of other pins to explore, though!

    #40 3 years ago

    I really wish I never sold my whirlwind.
    It went to a great pinsider, but I put so much into it to make it amazing and don't think I'll ever forgive myself for selling it.

    #41 3 years ago

    1. HS2
    2. ST
    3. RCT
    4. TF

    #43 3 years ago

    #1 Rollergames
    #2 Theatre of Magic
    #3 No Good Gophers
    #4 Whitewater

    #44 3 years ago

    1. BSD
    2. LOTR
    3. T2

    #45 3 years ago

    1 X-Files loved this game hated the the way the cabinet looked next to all the other games.
    2 Stargate owned it for 5 years only got rid of it to get back my super nice Freddy.
    3 Independence day
    4 Al's garage band
    5 Who Dunnit didnt keep this long enough because an interesting trade came along.
    6 Flight 2000
    7 Space Shuttle
    8 Blackout.

    The only game I've ever bought twice was Freddy. I bought another within a month of selling the first one not the best game in my collection(in fact probably the worst) but it was severely missed. I ended up getting my original back and sold the replacement.

    #46 3 years ago

    Totan-im shipping it out on monday and i am already regretting it.

    #47 3 years ago

    #1 Monday Night Football (if I ever find another, I'll buy it and my family will bury my ashes in it)

    #2 Slugfest (the one I sold was 100% complete)
    #3 Robocop
    #4 Jurassic Park (haven't missed this one at all, which is surprising. Lots to do in this game)

    #48 3 years ago

    AC/DC Premium (my wife liked it more than I did)
    Revenge From Mars
    High Speed

    those are the only ones I would ever rebuy, and probably won't rebuy any of them.
