    If you could only own one pin….. what would it be?

    #2 3 months ago

    From my collection: TZ

    GZ Premium

    #3 3 months ago

    Tron maybe, or TWD.

    #5 3 months ago

    Right now it would be GZ but I couldn't own 1 pin forever so realistically my 1 pin would be a rotator

    #8 3 months ago

    My first NIB - an original Medieval Madness.
    That will be the last pin to go in my collection.

    #10 3 months ago

    Was AFM, now a debate between that and GZ.

    #11 3 months ago

    EHOH. So far this is my favorte LCD era pin that I've played, and I prefer newer stuff.

    Scared Stiff is one of my favorite DMD games. I just love how campy these games are and of course I like cleavage.

    #12 3 months ago

    Simpsons Pinball Party?

    Don't have AFM yet, that might be it. (Despite having STh)

    #13 3 months ago

    Capcom Kingpin

    LTG : )

    #14 3 months ago

    My Paragon.... even though its being abused as a table as I reorganize my garage..

    Stern Star Wars prem comic.

    #16 3 months ago

    Batman 66 :}

    #17 3 months ago

    Either my SW comic premium or my dialed in LE. I just love dialed in guys!

    #19 3 months ago

    Hmm.. WMS grand prix.

    #20 3 months ago

    Medieval Madness...yeah, I'm one of those people. Whitewater is a close 2nd.

    Metallica!!. We've had 36 pins in 5 years after many years of none, and it's the one game I keep going back to. Total package, theme, art, callouts, band participation and soundtrack.

    #23 3 months ago

    Owning one pin
    But if I had to pick one it will be ATF or GZ prem

    #25 3 months ago

    1965 Gottlieb "Pleasure Isle".

    #26 3 months ago

    I would have said TZ until I got a Wonka. Deep code, great shot flow, and beautiful light show. Wonka is the complete package and stong enough to stand alone.

    #27 3 months ago

    TRON. It checks off all of the boxes.

    #28 3 months ago

    Maiden, theme and gameplay are right on for me

    I believe the prognosis is...FUCKING AWESOME
    Love the A Matter of Life and Death poster. Great album.

    #30 3 months ago

    One game only?!

    Then it would have to be the game that delivers the pinball experience on the most levels ...

    I500 wtf you think I'm gonna say

    Very different games. TSPP long ball times and lots of mode stacking. Really cerebral. AFM more direct and attacking. If you love TSPP hard to believe AFM would be your favorite if you had one

    Me, I own both, and am partial to AFM

    #33 3 months ago

    AFM for me with modded Met pro probably second. Do like TZ so sometimes that gets close

    #35 3 months ago

    Bad Girls is the pin I play the most right now. Before that it was Amazing Spider-Man for a long time. So I would pick one of those two.

    #37 3 months ago

    I hope one the undisputed best pins ever -- Black Hole -- didn't hear you just speak this blasphemy so close to your Paragon!

    #38 3 months ago

    Blue, no…yellow!

    #40 3 months ago
    Quoted from EJS:

    post like this

    I mean c'mon bucko at LEAST spice up the REASON for why you can only have 1 pin:

    + divorced and living in your van
    + literally living on a desert island with only solar power to maybe generate enough juice for 1 pin on a sunny day.
    + moved into a 300 sq ft. manhattan studio apartment on the 30th floor with a broken elevator, for half your tech salary

    I mean -- c'mon buddy pal. a little spice...
    I mean if I could only have one spice... I dunno man is it red pepper flakes, black pepper, cinnamon, garlic? This is a tough one... but WHY -- WHY only one spice???

    My collection was built on the 3 D’s


    That’s probably ranked accordingly too.

    #42 3 months ago

    My collection:

    Godzilla prem
    Jurassic Park prem
    TMNT prem
    No Good Gofers HUO
    Stranger Things prem
    Elvira House of Horrors
    Judge Dredd

    I would pick Shaq.

    Just kidding. Elvira HOH. It’s just the perfect pinball machine - art, callouts, rules, depth, humor, theme, video package, sound, etc. it’s challenging yet also fun to casually flip. My wife and I spent a good amount of time ranking our machines according to every detail, and Elvira topped both our lists handily.

    But Stranger Things prem and Godzilla are close behind. I wouldn’t even own a stranger things pro, but the prem with the projector and uv kit? It’s like nothing else in pinball. Ask me another day and I’ll say Godzilla or stranger things, but today I say Elvira.

    #43 3 months ago

    TSPP. Easily.

    #44 3 months ago

    Batman '66. However I did buy Flash Gordon twice so guess I can't live with just 1.

    #45 3 months ago

    Obviously a noob. The whole f'in premise is stupid. Owning one pinball machine... Lololol
    No pinball reproduction savvy whatsoever...

    #46 3 months ago

    Is it even possible to own only one?

    #47 3 months ago
    Quoted from koji:

    Hmm.. WMS grand prix.

    Good one! The fact that this game is not in the em top 100 is mind blowing.

    #48 3 months ago

    Supreme, cause I’m all about the lifestyle.

    Until you look at the games that make up the EM "Top 100" and realize that many of the reviewers have obviously not played a lot of EMs.
