    I've always had an slightly unhealthy obsession with system 11s. They have been where I have been happiest in this hobby. My game room was never big enough to have more than 18 games until I moved last year, expanding the game room to 40. What I thought was my crowning achievement was bringing 11 system 11s to Pintastic New England, until tonight....

    Tonight I completed what I believe to be the ONLY complete system 11 collection in the western hemisphere and only the second in the world. Order Up!

    I've always had an slightly unhealthy obsession with system 11s. They have been where I have been happiest in this hobby. My goal originally was to own them all at one time or another. I was fortunate enough to complete that goal about 2.5 years ago. My game room was never big enough to have more than 18 games until I moved last year, expanding the game room to 40. What I thought was my crowning achievement was bringing 11 system 11s to Pintastic New England, until tonight....

    Damn that’s awesome man! Congrats!!

    Need pics!!!

    #6 53 days ago

    Nothing wrong with being obsessed with System 11s and I'm sure you worked your ass off to get them. Congrats that's awesome!

    #7 53 days ago

    I see you saved the best for last!!!

    #8 53 days ago

    Pics of the gameroom or it didn't happen...
    Just joking. Congrats on the collection, but I would like to see pictures of your gameroom and collection. Always cool to see how people set up their gamerooms.

    #9 53 days ago

    Congrats dude! I’m also a sucker for sys11 pins!

    #10 52 days ago

    It’s been extremely enjoyable watching this journey unfold(literally, around your house). This collection achievement is only a dream for 99% of us, between the cost, difficulty of securing some of these titles and sheer time and travel. Knew that when you said this was a goal of yours, there’d be no stopping you, once you started. Definitely looking forward to you sharing the pics of this massive collection. Congrats again Brian!

    #11 52 days ago

    So glad you’ve completed the set, although I’m still bummed that I didn’t splurge on your Bad Cats at that Pintastic!

    #12 52 days ago

    Congratulations to a fine Pinsider!

    #13 52 days ago

    Congrats that's too cool

    #14 52 days ago

    Nice and worthy achievement! - Congrats!

    Congratulations! Where are the pics??

    What is your favorite?

    #21 49 days ago

    Awesome- I have more than three questions

    Which is your favorite....

    Art package
    Game play
    Theme
    Overall
    Two games that are closet to each other in layout/game play.

    I dont think I could even play them all in one go- a week would be necessary to even become superficially familiar with the games!

    #22 49 days ago

    I didn’t think anyone else would be crazy enough to own both Millionaire AND BBBB.

    #23 49 days ago

    If anyone's crazy enough, there's a BBBB in Alberta for sale right now!!

    #24 48 days ago

    I am also a big system 11 fan, but I have settled for just trying to play all system 11 games! I still have a few more to go...

    I was excited because I finally got to play transporter in a pinball tournament the other day! It has taken a long time to even locate one.

    Quoted from rufessor:

    Art package

    Theme
    Overall

    Art package is easily Diner. I am a fan of the 50s look to it.

    Theme is Whirlwind, the topper ties it all in so we'll.

    Gameplay is Banzai, though whirlwind taxi and F-14 are great too

    Overall is Banzai.

    Sleeper pick? Millionaire. Get over the cheesy art, and we have a winnah!

    How many are you taking?

    Also, is all the hate for BBBB warranted? I have never played it.

    Yeah it is. Bad rules that don’t help a really odd and quirky layout. Play it once for novelty and satisfy the curiosity and then move on.

    In my quest to play all 30 system 11 games, I am still missing BBBB, millionaire, bad cats, grand lizard, and for some reason...earthshaker. I have seen all of them (just haven't had the chance to play them for various reasons) except badcats. Ive never even come across it.

    #30 48 days ago

    Congratulations! what a goal to achieve! I have owned 20 of the 30 so far, but have not kept them all. Owned Police Force and F14 twice. Would like to say that I have owned them all someday, but going to fall short of calling it a hardcore goal. Should have started 5 years before I did.

    This is an amazing accomplishment. Of the 30 machines, I’ve played all of them except bugs bunny. The VFW in Ann Arbor, MI has almost all of them. So many great machines from my favorite era. I’d like to get about 20 of them someday. like that will ever happen! Do you have any pictures of your game room?
