    MonsterBash LE or Ghostbusters LE?

    Ghostbusters pro or premium/le?

    Lets assume Premium/LE on both

    MB is a solid classic. CGC makes great quality pins. Then there’s Stern...

    I own both. In a large collection mb is the way to go but if you only have one or two games you may appreciate the depth of play on gb. Both are great games that you cant go wrong with. Good luck, have fun.

    For you or family? GB is awesome. MB fun too but too simple for my personal taste

    Neither

    What are you looking for in a game?

    MB gets old in a week, masterpiece on location but fails in small collection

    The answer is obvious.

    Both.

    Welcome to the sickness!

    GhostBusters for sure.

    Are those games particularly nostalgic or looking for a theme the entire family would enjoy?

    MB for a bigger collection. Not necessarily huge but better with few more around. I never had GB in the line up but it would probably stay a while as it’s challenging. I love MB but perfect for family and others who are just getting into pinball.

    First pin and looking to grow into a collection as well?

    Have any arcades or a game room as is?

    They’re both great games. It took me a year to find a Ghostbusters premium that was local. Price keeps going up on GB.

    Both games are great. Put some time into playing thrm if you can and decide which one is best for you and your family. If ylu cannot make your mind up buy both!

    Ghostbusters is a poor design. MB has never been my favorite. Something like Medieval Madness is better.

    If I had to choose one, i'd rather play Ghostbusters over Monster Bash.

    this is tough because I like them both. GB can be a ball buster but I do miss it occasionally. I actually just got through playing my MB and it is just good pinball. Has really straight forward objectives but still can be challenging and is super fun. Kids and visitors love it also. If between those 2 I would go MB.

    just an idea, you can get a MB classic for around $5500 and then get a second hand stern pro like TWD, ST, or MET for $4500-$5000 and have 2 pins. The LE's are not all they are cracked up to be unless you are a collector.

    I like this idea! Thanks for the suggestion.
