If you could only own one pinball machine for the rest of your life, what would it be?

#2 1 year ago

Gotta go with ACDC still. Exciting and very challenging. My vote

#4 1 year ago

TAF. The choice is always TAF.

#5 1 year ago

I would think it needs to be fast and brutal but significantly deep so lots of challenge to sustain interest for a long time.
So maybe Stern Star Trek, AC/DC, or Metallica.

Dialed le....

Maybe JJP #4

Although I have no idea what that even is...

#8 1 year ago

BOP2.0. Huge upgrade from the original and modes I have yet to reach!

None of the above.

Never knew I wasn't supposed to publicly mention a drain until today....so I won't mention it.

TRON because my son loves seeing his name up on the DMD and shouted out in the audio and to me that excited little smile is priceless!!

Did they stop making them? Was the supply wiped out? Did I miss the note that I had to sell all my games? I can own as many as I can fit in my house, so no, I don’t need to have one game the rest of my life. After a couple of months I’d hate that game, no matter what game it was. Variety is the spice of life... and Pinball.

Haven't you heard?

There is a pinball virus that corrodes circuit boards and wipes out any chance of getting long overdue code updates.

Nice to see a sneak peak at JJP #4!

Mine's still Funhouse.

Funhouse for me too.

#21 1 year ago

Whirlwind.... Still the greatest game ever made....

No brainer....Dialed IN LE

Well, since the op is offering, I'll take any game he wants to give me.

If it's space that is the issue, check this out for a 1 pin collection:

They have to get slapped around a bit, it's part of the initiation.

I guess I would go with one of the deeper games in hopes I wouldn't get bored after awhile.

#31 1 year ago

STTNG for me

#33 1 year ago

TSPP is a good single pin choice too. So much to do, lots of shot variety....

#34 1 year ago

MET LE....or second close choice DIALED IN LE.....

It's my pleasure time favorite. Everyshot is fun and has a lot to do.

Right now if I could only buy one pin I’d have to say JJP POTC!

#39 1 year ago

Definitely TX-Sector! Love at first sight/listen (gameplay takes some getting used to though). Medieval Madness is a close second, but it got edged out due to the fact that it's way too popular (#1 rated table on Pinside). I don't like to follow the herd.

I don't think a single pin can hold someone's attention indefinitely. If you're going to have only one, I suggest being ready to swap it out on a regular basis so you always have something that holds your interest.

Currently Dialed In CE followed by The Shadow.

The OP stated "If you could only own one...."

Everyone knows just having one pin would get stale quick and you would need to rotate to keep your interest. Now picture you are on a deserted island and you can only own one machine-what machine would it be?

#43 1 year ago

Super long answer but This is very appropriate thread for me because I'm in a similar situation being in NYC and having no basement or dedicated game room. Having one pin in the corner of my living room looks kind of nice. I Could actually squeeze a second pin in but I'd have to Take all my stereo system/home theater gear off the rack and come up with another method to house them, and quite frankly having two pins in my living room I think diminishes the coolness of having something so exotic and fun in a living space.

So for me I feel one pin is best. I really thought that DI would fit the bill because it seemed like it would have a lot of variety but i wanted to wait and see what JJP4 looked like before pulling the trigger. I'm super glad i waited because pirates looks fantastic, and has so many options.

I did pick up a nice TAF as a first pin to hold me over since I knew it could be a while until jjp4 is available. Now of course I'm going to be sad to sell the TAF. Not sure why I ordered pinstadium lights to put in it just for the 6 months or so I own it.

And it wouldn't be the Wilson.

Hands down for me it's Flash Gordon. Easy to understand and super challenging.

#47 1 year ago

TAF for me, easily.

POTC JJP Collectors Edition

Love at first sight.

If I could only own one pin, it would mean I'm in a nursing home, so probably any one of them would suffice.
