Was wondering since my wife doesn't seem to like pinball much if anyone can share what machines woman seem to gravitate towards?

#2 4 years ago

My wife loved F-14 Tomcat for some reason, still tells me she's mad that I sold it.

She loves WCS94, most non pinheads do because it's fun, and easy to grasp the basics.

My wife made me buy a cv , she played it about 6 months and then sold it and bought her a bride of pinbot she never played it once (and she asked for it ) , but then I bought a nba fastbreak and loved it she always plays it doesn't let me sell it , but now that twd arrived she forgot about nbafb .....

Most women seem to like TOM.

That is funny about the WCS94 because we just visited Modern Pinball in NYC and my stepdaughter liked only that game. My daughter played TWD cause she likes the show and my wife opted to shop Ughh

TAF often gets women tickled for some reason...

#8 4 years ago

My girlfriend's favorites are TOM, Scared Stiff, WhoDunnit, The Shadow, Safecracker, Taxi, Attack From Mars and Star Trek. She's generally terrified of anything designed by Steve Richie (except Trek) and confused by anything Pat Lawlor (except Safecracker). Nothing pre-System 11 holds her interest.

If she doesn't like pinball, the machine won't matter. I've seen this a couple times already...

None that I've ever found.

My wife loves all games that I have sold And hates all that are bought

#12 4 years ago

I have never seen women gravitate to a machine like they do TFTC. The cryptkeeper just has a certain charm to them.

Pac Man was a game created for women because "Women like to Eat"

#22 4 years ago

Some of my wifes favorites over the years are Funhouse,BK2K,EATPM and TFTC.....On a side note some pins she has never liked are TAF(Callouts) :roll:and TZ (my favorite)As a disclaimer we have been playing pinball together for 25 years.

#24 4 years ago

POTC
IJ
MM
ToM

Are you asking about Pinball machines or?

The trick is finding the right woman, not the right pin.

A very wise man !

My wife declared F14 as 'hers'. I put the message, "Kill that Yagov" in the custom menu. She was pissed enough that I blamed it on Steve Ritchie.

#29 4 years ago

LOTR LE. Coincidentally I have one for sale ...

#30 4 years ago

Any pin once or twice, after that no real interest. If they don't really enjoy pinball in general, one special pin is not going to do it.

She will happily play for a few hours at places like PAPA and pinfest. But she is all over the place, no particular pin speaks to her.

But I can guarantee no EM pin is of interest.

I have had many pins cycle through my living room and given the choice she would much rather play Qbert or Qbert's Qubes on the MAME.

#31 4 years ago

My ex liked checkpoint and ac/dc. Current gf likes CSI, metallica and ST. I think games that don't drain immediately or where you can start a mode or multiball easy are more fun for new people to get into. The theme of course helps. My gf thought woz was pretty so she "liked it".

Mi wife land my daughter like

Wizard of oz
and
TOM

This should be the picture to signify NIB. Notice no KY in the picture.

It's probably the same for women as for men. They like some and dont like others, all personal preference.

My wife who does not "get" pinball gravitated to Party Zone, MET, and CC ( yes she has expensive taste) when I dragged her to SFGE. She also seemed to like EMs... less intimidating maybe?

Quoted from neverahighscore:

Wife loves Sterns Playboy. Also with some parties we had, the ladies all gathered around Playboy no matter who was playing and laughing the whole time. Now who couldn't love a game with a playfield like this. The call-outs are funny too!

Ok first off if you're gonna have a PB this is the one...and the pics to have on it...the others are just??? Stupid IMO!! What's the point otherwise??
I personally like EM wise Space Mission and Spirit of 76. Early SS wise, there are sooo many that it is hard to list...Star Light, Barracora, Cosmic Gunfight, Pharaoh, Algar, Scorpion, Blackout, Farfalla (European BG is the only option for this one), Fathom...System 11 Bad Cats, F-14, Taxi...WPC, AFM, Congo, TOTAN, TOM, SS. Newer games POTC, CSI, SM, AC/DC, Met...I can't stand WCS94, The Shadow, TAF, or CV...The ringmaster is creepy. WOZ just doesn't do ANYTHING for me, sorry I tried to like it...
But then I like Pinball in general, so I guess my votes don't count!!!
