    Hard to find and fun!
    Got it back from the person I sold it to a few years ago.

    Bought Elektra and Terminator 2 twice. Still own them.

    #53 2 years ago
    Quoted from DaveH:

    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.

    The other HG (original p/f) that my buddy Dave H now owns again. And I’ll own it a third time some day and start a new Pinside thread of the “same game and title” you have bought three times.

    Sm x 2, FT x 2 WWFRR x 2 and Acdc Premium x 2. My space is limited acdc wont leave ever again. I could see me getting sm again or afm for the second time but my goal is to bring back GnR. Its the trifecta of my Rock pins.

    Wow, I hadn’t even thought of that! This is actually my third Harlem, because I owned it a few years back. That game is never leaving the extended family. We will all just keep passing it around.

    JD =4

    Ironman is the only pin I’ve bought twice.

    #60 2 years ago

    Soon, you could buy Kingpin and Iron Maiden twice, but own 4 different machines.

    #61 2 years ago

    WCS94...then T2

    #62 2 years ago

    RFM X2

    #65 2 years ago

    I bought 8 games twice...
    But ive bought the same game twice, in one day!
    What's better than 1 Big Guns, a Pair!
    Within 3 miles of each other, dueling craigslist adds, pulled it off in under 5 hours.

    Baywatch and terminator 2, roadshow, and the shadow.

    #67 2 years ago

    BSD was the first, but not the last.

    I’ve also owned CFTBL, TAF, and MB twice.

    #68 2 years ago

    #69 2 years ago

    I bought a Black Rose sight unseen that was supposed to be in excellent condition. It turned out to be junk. I then bought one that was in a fire and built a nice one from the best parts of both machines. I also bought Comet 3 times because I got good prices on them all 3 times. Same with Genesis and Mr. & Mrs. Pac-Man. Bought them, sold them, wanted them again. Rinse and repeat. I also had 2 High Speeds but I cant remember why I bought them twice.

    #71 2 years ago

    Every game in my collection except GB, SOF and WH20. Pinbot 5x, Whirlwind 3x, IJ 4x, FT 3x everything else 2x

    #72 2 years ago

    Acdc premium nib....sold it, bought the VE

    Taxi sold it, the seller let me buy it back 2 years later.

    #73 2 years ago

    Genie x2
    4 Roses x2

    Both times to combine both to make one beautiful specimen and then pass the duplicate machine to another player.

    #74 2 years ago

    Has anybody re-bought a machine only to regret it immediately?

    #75 2 years ago

    I'm on my third NBAFB. Kids were upset when I sold the second one. Game that's easy for them to get into.

    #76 2 years ago

    Linked NBAFB.

    #77 2 years ago

    Oh...and a Whirlwind. So that’s 3 games I have bought twice.

    Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

    Yup, I've done that a couple of times as well....

    #79 2 years ago

    Whitewater, we bought it and no one in the family enjoyed it for some reason, sold it within the week. Never looked back. Tried it a couple times at a show, just can't get into it. Love the look, love the theme.

    #81 2 years ago
    Quoted from NPO:

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

    My first JM gets delivered tomorrow.

    #82 2 years ago

    My first machine was Jurassic Park. I sold it to fund my second machine, Fish Tales. Several years later, I had a cold call offer on my Fish Tales, which I reluctantly accepted. I used that money (in part) to fund my second Jurassic Park. Fast forward to this year, where I again resold Jurassic Park to fund Fish Tales. Of the machines I've owned, Jurassic Park would still be the fist on the list of one's I'd want to own again.

    My first and second firepower! Can’t wait to get these up and running.

    Taxi twice (hopefully a third time soon), Fire twice, and Hot Shot twice.

    DE Star Wars. Second one is in better shape but I do not play it much.

    #86 1 year ago

    Whirlwind and BSM because I just had to have them both back. So happy to have them back too! Bought 2 NASCAR machines at one time but that was because I gave one to my brother as a gift. He sort of likes pinball and his two favorite things are fishing and following NASCAR. You can guess that I bought a Fishtales for him too. Even took it apart and rebuilt the whole machine including side art and cleared playfield. It is his favorite. And I get to keep overflow at his house with out any complaining.

    Oops. Dang.. BSD. Lol!

    #88 1 year ago

    TZ AFM and Tron LE

    #89 1 year ago

    BIN Williams Fire - I think it's one of the most beautiful games every made. Regretted selling my first and got a chance to pick one up nearby with a CPR playfield.

    I bought the same Williams Grand Prix... three times.

    #91 1 year ago

    Grand Lizard and next up BSD

    #92 1 year ago

    TAF to TAFG. Upgraded to HUO Gold game and haven't looked back...

    #93 1 year ago

    I seem to trade off then rebuy games later...

    Who Dunnit? (traded off towards CFTBL, then rebought the same one back later and sold it)
    Judge Dredd (traded off then bought a different one later)
    CFTBL (traded off then later traded for a different one)
    LAH (traded off as part of the CFTBL swap, bought another one later)

    #94 1 year ago

    3x Spirit 5x EBD. The addiction has a strong hold on me!

    #95 1 year ago

    LOTRs...... sold that one also.

    #96 1 year ago

    BSD here to stay this time.

    #98 1 year ago

    In one bizarre moment I had two TZs at the same time. I no longer have the game at all- having moved back to another Tales from the Crypt sample game (my second, both sample games!).

    20151210_175742 (resized).jpg

    #99 1 year ago

    In order: PinBot, High Speed, Monopoly, and Road Kings (also Donkey Kong if you're into that sort of thing).

    #100 1 year ago

    Judge Dredd was my first rebuy...mostly because of opportunity and cost. Reluctantly traded the first towards CV. Second one popped up for cheap ($800, which was cheap even back then) and was nicer. Unfortunately that one also reluctantly went in a large trade deal for my X-Men. Miss it, but no regrets. Wouldn't be too surprised to have a third someday.

    Also bought Stern Star Trek twice. First was NIB Premium. Traded it for IM + NF, which was a good deal, but I regretted letting it go almost immediately. Eventually traded for a barely used Pro. No regrets "downgrading", and I like the artwork way better.

    Just a couple days ago I did it again. This time Spider-Man. Had a routed original, but let it go as I really wanted a mint one, plus the vault was just coming out at the time and had me interested. Side note, it was traded for my replacement ST. Well I was finally able to replace it, this time with a barely used Vault. Bolting this one to the floor!
