    I just picked up my second demo man. Super excited to get another one and in even better shape. I have always wondered what game I would buy twice for some reason or another and this is the one! What others have bought doubles of and why?

    #2 1 year ago

    (3) Demo Man, (2) STTNG, (2) Corvette, (2) LAH (2) Gorgar, (2) Dr Who. Why? Well, because they were available and I had cash. I lost track of which title that was the first to buy twice.

    #3 1 year ago

    I usually buy 2-3 of the same title to get better PF's or backglasses to make one really nice one. Gottlieb High Hand x 2, Soccer x 2, Bally SBM x 2, Paragon x 3, Playboy x 2, Xenon x 2, Mata Hari x 3, Strikes and Spares x 3 and Space Invaders x 2. Make a keeper, sell the rest.

    I bought LOTR yesterday and it was the first one I bought twice.

    #5 1 year ago

    Soon to be Joker Poker!

    #6 1 year ago

    Does buying two at the same time count?

    Stern Nine Ball -- just like previous posters trying to make one good one out of the two.

    Fish Tales - had one for about a year then I saw an ad in the classifieds of the newspaper of a pinball machine for $500. Called and it was FT and too good of a deal to pass up.

    #8 1 year ago

    Only Judge Dredd, But I would re buy a Fishtales, or Junkyard again.

    #9 1 year ago

    WPT bought it twice, sold it twice.

    #10 1 year ago

    Johnny Mnemonic 3x now. Maybe a 4th....

    #11 1 year ago
    Quoted from Rockytop:

    I bought LOTR yesterday and it was the first one I bought twice.

    And an amazing lotr at that.

    Eight ball deluxe is only one I have owned twice and it is only because the second one was $200

    #12 1 year ago

    Pinball Magic this one is staying.

    #13 1 year ago

    Iron man(sold cause demand got crazy) bought brand new VE when it came out, if they dont count as same game I also just rebought South Park (traded first one for FT and it was trashed)

    #14 1 year ago

    Bally speakeasy, data east simpsons

    #15 1 year ago

    Medieval Madness was the first. There were many more after that. Being a recovering pinball addict, I limit myself to 2-3 pins MAX at a time now. If I want a new one, an existing one has to go. So there's lots of re-buying over the years.

    But it's kept the addiction effects under control. I do not have any pin storage units.

    #16 1 year ago

    Wh2o first for 1300 second one for 1500

    #17 1 year ago

    The first game I ever bought twice was BSD. I sold it and bought a third one, which is now gone.

    I've also owned IM, BDK, and Sopranos 3 times. IM was the first game I bought NIB. I had the chance to buy it back from the guy I sold it to and did, then sold it and bought my third one a few weeks ago.

    Games I've owned 2 or more times: BSD (3), IM (3), BDK (3), Sopranos (3), JD (2), RoadShow (2), JM (2), POTC (2), WPT (2), Devils'Dare (2), and Mibs (2)

    Games I've owned and would buy a second time: White Water, CV, TSPP, Monopoly, and AC/DC Premium or Pro (I've owned both)

    Games I would like to own for the first time: LOTR and WOZ

    So I guess the question for me is, what will be the first game I own 4 times?

    #18 1 year ago

    Centaur. Regretted selling my first one, so did a custom that will never leave.

    #19 1 year ago

    ^^^^ and it is awesome looking!

    #20 1 year ago

    LOTR was the first game I had 2 of, followed by Monster Bash.
    Now, I’m just waiting for the LOTR VE, and it will be my third.
    Would be happy at some point get back a TZ & STTNG into the collection- miss both of those.

    #21 1 year ago

    Mystery Castle, then AFM & AFMr le I guess that counts no?

    #22 1 year ago

    Monster Bash this one is my second one. It will be staying as it is a keeper.

    Beautiful Centaur!

    #24 1 year ago

    Wizard! at least 5 times.
    Sing along. twice
    Volley. twice.
    Atlantis twice.

    Currently own two of each, with the exception of Atlantis (should of kept it). Volley is getting lots of play. Great game!

    #25 1 year ago

    GOT. Upgraded from an LE to a pro

    #26 1 year ago

    Pinbot. Traded the first one for a NBA Fastbreak. Had to get another because I missed it. Now the second one is gone in a trade deal as well. Someday I'll probably want another.

    #28 1 year ago

    My first two pins back in 1983, both Count-Downs. The seller offered me the second one for $100... someone had taken an axe to the cabinet, it worked otherwise. Also my first "restoration"... not proud of that one.

    2 haunted houses at once from a fire engine collector . games 12 and 13 in 1988. Had over 100 games more than once. Most is de star wars with 52. Most at once? 7 space invaders out of a operators shed. Most moved at once but not mine. 8 st TNG on behalf of pinball heaven in 1997 when pinball was dying. Most currently is 5 de star trek.

    Multi game pics are fun!

    #33 1 year ago

    IM VE x2, ST Prem x3, LOTR LE x2, SM x2, Met Prem x2, AFM x2, POTC x2

    Added 12 months ago: TF LE x2

    #34 1 year ago

    TZ 3 times - IJ 3 times .. Bought my Monster bash and Metallica LE back from the guys I sold them too for the same price in return.
    Gotta appreciate people who honour their word!

    #36 1 year ago

    First one to come back after selling it was Air Aces (2), Scared Stiff (2), followed by Tommy (2), TOM (2), Volley (2), MB (2), MM (2). Had seller's remorse immediately on SS. The others are still here except Volley and TOM...I really wanted to like TOM, but got bored, then good, then bored, and gone.

    I bought a 2nd Space Station to get a nicer cab and better ramps for mine, which I’d already done a playfield swap on. I sold WW thinking that the playfields would never get made, then bought a 2nd when CPR production started.

    #39 1 year ago

    As far as keepers, I sold a very nice GTL Pop-A-Card. Had seller’s remorse as I was helping load it up. Two days later an even nicer one came up for sale locally - at a little over half of what I sold the first one for. Several years later - it’s still here and going nowhere.

    #40 1 year ago

    WH20 x2
    JD x2
    STTNG x2
    Shadow x2
    JM x2

    These ones I have bought back a second time and never sold again because I really missed them.

    DM x3

    After the third time I was done and besides I needed the cash and space for another game Creech.

    I have also owned TSPP twice but sold it due to longer ball times.

    #41 1 year ago

    RBION X2 excellent game and this one is not leaving

    #42 1 year ago

    First I bought LOTR, WOZ and TZ. Then I bought WOZ RR, updated and modded TZ and LOTR LE. Then I sold the LOTR and the first TZ. I still own both WOZ and keep the standard in my parents' basement. These are my three favorite games (WOZ is my #1) so I just wanted better versions of each.

    #43 1 year ago

    4 funhouses, 2 eight ball deluxes, 2 tales from the crypt

    #44 1 year ago

    South Park 3x. Each better than the last.
    Soon to be LW3 for the 2nd time.

    #45 1 year ago

    Whitewater x3, Fast Draw x2, Banzai Run x2, Scared Stiff x2, Cirqus Voltaire x2

    #46 1 year ago

    Eight Ball Deluxe was my first double. LOTR was the second, and Harlem Globetrotters was the third. Sunday my second Solar City will arrive at my house.

    Both Harlems are still here. The one on the right has the plastic prototype playfield and plays amazingly. I wish Bally had continued that little experiment.
