    Exciting times, I got the ok from the wife to buy a second pin! My first is a PinBot that I am almost done refreshing. We have space/plans for three pins eventually in our game/media room. I have 4 kids ages 8-16, two boys and two girls. I would like our second pin to be a family friendly title, something accessible to the girls as well as the boys. I am not looking for EM titles at this time, probably sticking to system 11 or newer.

    Budget for pin 2 is $4500-5000.

    With that in mind, what pins should be in my short list to evaluate and play??

    Naturally depends upon everyone's likes...

    Jurassic Park (within budget)... good fun
    Deadpool Pro (1K above your budget)... game is a ton of fun, and new.

    Guardians of the Galaxy is pretty good, and definitely an accessible theme (you can probably find it used for $5000 if you're willing to wait and watch). Spiderman can usually be had at that price, probably a better game than GOTG and friendlier (longer playing). Simpsons Pinball Party is also in that range, but not sure the theme is meaningful to kids these days.

    Family friendly themes i think that are good are Jurassic park, iron man, Batman dark knight, GOTG pro, spider man, transformers, and x-men.

    I just picked up a Stern Star Trek and my wife was finally excited to play a game on it and she could care less about all the rest of them. I am really enjoying it also, great music and call outs if you like the movies / series fun fast pin. A newbie came to my house this weekend and he fell in love it also said it was his favorite. I picked a new Pro Vault but you can find used originals in great shape in the $4200 range.
