    Quoted from rotordave:

    Carl also provides shasta and deli meats, so it’s more than just lessons.
    It’s a complete experience.

    For 100k Carl can share his favorite drink and save the Shasta for the deadbeats.

    Quoted from Electrocute:

    I was actually thinking of selling some EM's to free up enough cash to buy your Whoa Nellie.

    What you going to sell. (:

    Quoted from Dantesmark:

    Valid points, but my main objective of the post was to present a list of games that i have played and really enjoyed... but i wanted input on games that maybe i have overlooked or never played.
    If there was an overwhelming response to a certain title of “you have to have blank game in your collection”, i would try to seek it out and put some time on it. Then i could make a decision on if it should replace one of the 12 that i had comprised on my original list.

    Yeah, but there never is a consensus in these kind of threads. You just get a fairly random listing of games, with plenty of bickering and butthurt.

    A lot of guys even try to seem more elite by claiming they like obscure games.

    "The unwashed masses like drinking beer and playing TZ and TAF, but I like playing Varcon with a glass of lightly chilled Domaine Ramonet Montrachet Grand Cru."

    It would be better to make a thread asking, "What are all-time favorite pins that everyone seems to love?"

    That would get you more on target.

    Quoted from Aurich:

    I really couldn't care less how rich people spend their money. I think it's super tacky to flaunt it, this thread is definitely in that category, so I'm gonna post and drain, I don't feel like seeing it. But if you want some advice it's this:
    Buying all those games at once, no matter what they are, is just a recipe for not enjoying a bunch of pinball. Unless you're the kind of rich guy who just likes to show people how much stuff they have, in which case knock yourself out, I'm sure your neighbors will be impressed for a few minutes.
    But if you're a player, who wants to enjoy games, and you have money, then slow your roll. Pick them up slowly. Enjoy the hunt. Enjoying exploring each game without being a butterfly trying to flit from game to game, sipping and not really getting anywhere. Learn what you like, instead of asking a bunch of strangers to make you a game list. Especially one so generic, you can get that list from anywhere, it's like a Baby's First Top Pinball list.

    Pick any 12 games out of my collection. For 100K they're all yours. A few new in box too.

    I'll send them a few at a time so you get pin overload!

    I don't think he's going to buy a pinball machine anytime soon.
