Hi everyone

I need help on which to buy?

I have a GB pro, LOTR, GOTG pro... I have kids and I want to buy a new pin that's kid friendly.

My choices are SW pro, ST pro, or just wait for the next stern pin.. if you have any Ideas on a pin I should buy instead of these let me know why.

Thanks in advance

AFMr? I know it is more expensive but the callouts are great and family friendly. Easy to understand rules but hard to complete. Puts a smile on my face and the kids as well every time we play it.

I have a 6 year old and 10 year old. I just bought Iron Maiden Premium and Star Trem Premium. While Iron Maiden has some cartoon violence, it wasn't too much for my family. We are really loving it so far.

Star Trek is an awesome game as well. We watched the 2009/2013 reboot and have been playing the game a lot. But we all like Iron Maiden better.

The number one hit for my kids and their friends is BY FAR TNA. Simple rules, CO-OP. It's THE ONE.

Something other than a stern spike, Perhaps WOZ?

I know you said "New", but you could also consider a gently used Stern Spiderman. Great game and plenty kid friendly.

I took my kids to play Iron maiden and they didn't like it, but I'll give it another chance and play it again.

Something other than a stern spike, LOTR or TSPP would be excellent choices.

Of course I have a HUO LOTR, and it's one of the best pins I have.. the funny thing is I wanted a TSPP and by mistake got a LOTR pin and never looked back. I'll have TSPP one day.

Medieval or Attack remake

I agree. Both are a hit in my family.

It’s more expensive, but I’d go with a JJP pin. We love our Hobbit and Dialed In. We also have a stern Star Trek pro and really enjoy it.

I would love to own a JJP but the price is a bit over my budget... but man Dialed In is a work of art IMO!

Is there any place close you can take them to play those games before buying? I thought for sure my daughter's would love Dialed In, but I was proved wrong once they played it! My oldest (13) does not like the Data East Star Wars, but loves STTNG. AFMr is also a good suggestion, but I just cannot bring myself to spend the $$ on it.

Ya, I agree. You’ll want to try these before buying. After playing gotg, and sw at a local bowling alley they were so meh.

Mm, afm even waiting to see what is sterns next are good ideas. Or find an older game they like.
