Linked Games

#1 1 year ago

I've decided to open up one slot in my pinball lineup for what I call a 'Trader' machine. It's one that will be fun for a while but not a keeper. Just something to keep us entertained, then we'll trade it for another. I'm looking in the $5000-$6500 range. There's a few games on my list, such as Tron, Alice Cooper, Attack from Mars and Medieval Madness, but I think they'd end up being keepers and ruin my plans. Suggestions? I've link some of the games I'm interested in but haven't played any of them much.

Just keep your eyes open on the marketplace. When a game you think would be fun pops up at a good price in your driving range (or shipping if you want to tackle that adventure) go for it. System 11, 90's DMD, Gottlieb system 80, and 2000's Sterns are great choices. A lot if "B" and "C" list games out there that are a blast to own for 6 months or a year. Usually can get at a good price and sell at same price so you don't lose. Black Hole, LOTR, Transformers, Demo man, and BSD are a few that I had that were a blast to own for a while.
