Just curious what everybody thought the deepest system 11 pin was ruleset wise.
New! Dark mode!

They're all about the same to me.
You can't go wrong with any system 11. However, none are really going to be too deep.
I've always felt that Dr. Dude has a pretty deep ruleset. It doesn't necessarily have the deepest strategies to complete the game (spam 3 shots, then shoot the mixmaster is basically the single way to play the game), but it has enough embellishments to give players alternatives.
That being said, Whirlwind does a really good job at both offering deep rules with deep(er) strategies. The player can go for multiball to get jackpots and higher scores, or they can go for cellar score values. You can also stack quick multiballs on top of regular multiballs to get 2 jackpots at once.
Elvira and the Party Monsters is also pretty deep in that respect, I'd think.
Wwind has that WPC feel to it with the "wizard mode" of completing the cellar.
But if you are looking for "deep" probably look elsewhere that's not what System 11 is about.
Do you value depth more or the "keeps me coming back for more" factor?
Whirlwind has good depth of rules, but Taxi has an edge for me in "keeps me coming back". A nice variety of challenges and tons of character / charm. The music and callouts are awesome and ringing that bell and making the topper flash is not easy to do - it's always satisfying!
I need to get more time on some others.
