    Better half is on me to clear out some space. I have 15 currently and really only room for 12. So which 3 do I part ways with? :-/

    Each person can only pick one, this is to avoid people from selecting all 15. So pick your #1 I should sell.

    So sad as I love them all.

    I'm surprised to even see Monopoly mixed in with that group. Monopoly lasted only about a couple months in my collection. The sounds began to irritate the entire family - me included.

    Your wife isn’t on the list.

    #5 1 year ago

    Did you forget to put "better half" on the poll?

    #6 1 year ago

    I agree monopoly is easily the front runner....the next 2 are digging deep though and will be painful.

    #7 1 year ago

    Rent an apartment somewhere, fill it with games. Voila, instant man cave she can’t interfere with. Of course, she’ll prob accuse you of an affair though so minor drawback there. But hey, ya got a place to crash now, right?

    #8 1 year ago

    Before I vote, I need to know if it's truly just space, or do you want to free up some cash.

    People are saying Monopoly, but if your looking for a cash bump, that won't do much for your pocket. (Relatively speaking)

    #9 1 year ago

    Also doesn’t help I am eyeing a funhouse to pickup this weekend...........

    All about the space.

    #11 1 year ago

    Because Monopoly is clearly the front runner, I'll go a different direction. I had TSPP for a year and although fun, it got tedious. I almost dreaded having a good game because it would be 40+ minutes.

    #12 1 year ago

    Dang I would have thought monopoly would have done better than that haha. Maybe because I want one and it’s in my price range. Good game

    Monopoly is a very underrated game, I do have fun playing it. But when I compare it to my other 14 it’s on the short list of games that gotta go.

    #14 1 year ago

    I vote for the hour per game-game.

    #15 1 year ago

    Sell the ones you don't play. Very simple.

    #16 1 year ago

    Ill be in Denver sunday through thursday with a truck. Let me know what you want to dump monopoly for.

    #17 1 year ago

    Acdc, tspp, monopoly... In that order

    #18 1 year ago

    Monopoly, TSPP, ACNC

    #19 1 year ago

    Monopoly, ACNC, and AC/DC Premium.

    #20 1 year ago

    Can't tell if that's a lot of hate on AC/DC or people hoping it comes up for sale

    I couldn't pick a specific one, but I'd look at it by the one you've had the longest but play the least rather than by name.

    #21 1 year ago

    Tough list. There are games like LOTR, ST LE, and WOZ that I would have no problems letting go and you would get good money for them. Easy to sell, too. I like Monopoly not sure I would let that go so fast. Pretty good game for the money imo. ACNC would also be good to go but to be honest never played one. I would focus on games you have had the longest and don't play much. Even great games get a bit old after a while.

    #22 1 year ago

    Sell 3 Monopolys. Problem solved.

    #23 1 year ago

    Monopoly, Nightmare Castle, and the wife.

    #24 1 year ago

    my order to go would be monopoly,TSPP,ACNC, #4 would probably be Spider-Man. I love the game and have one. But it does get long and boring after awhile

    #25 1 year ago

    Cant you rearange the room
    Move stuff so you only havr to loose 1?

    #26 1 year ago
    Quoted from jorro:

    Nope, 12 is the right number for the game room. The overflow 3 are invading the bar

    Put them ad a friends house? Then you can chsnge your line up and make a friend happy!

    That is an idea. I have done that before. Might be worth consideration, does let me horde more machines that way

    #29 1 year ago

    Problem solved!

    #30 1 year ago

    why does everyone assume better half = wife?

    I would sell Monopoly, LOTR, and TSPP

    oldest games and been there done that...

    I also would sell quite a few others and dive a bit deeper into more pre-DMD stuff

    #31 1 year ago

    I elected to not eliminate monopoly. Sure, compared to the rest of that collection, it isn’t a stand out great. But that collection is mostly top tiered, so having a game like monopoly can really mix it up when you want something quirky and different.

    My votes would be for Alice Cooper or TSPP. But honestly, depends on what your attached to the least.

    #32 1 year ago

    That's an amazing list. I'd say monopoly, as everyone already stated, but Alice Cooper and probably Spiderman (as you already have star trek).

    #33 1 year ago

    Well. I expected Monopoly to take a hit. I feel it's underrated, but when I look at my collection it for sure is on the short list to sell.
    Gets tough after that.
    I actually don't have ACNC yet, but I have played it a lot and feel like it'll be a keeper for a while. So that one isn't leaving.
    Monster Bash LE is inbound next week and I love that game so a keeper.
    TnA is also newer to me and I enjoy it, so not leaving.
    WoZ.....Just got the monkey mod and still love to play the game and have not mastered it. Plus its beautiful. Staying.
    LotR....In the middle of installing a Ron Kruzman play field in it. Going to be gorgeous. Staying
    TSPP....also will get a RK play field and I love the game. Keeper.

    Fudge, where to go from there.....

    Well, MMr LE and AFM rLE serial matches with MBr LE and belong together. So staying.
    Dialed In LE.....one of my favorites.

    Whats left? ST LE, TWD LE, MET, AC/DC, Black Spiderman

    Well shit that's a hell of a list to pick 2 from.....I just can't do it!

    #34 1 year ago

    Then I say BSM or STLE

    #35 1 year ago
    Quoted from WackyBrakke:

    Whats left? ST LE, TWD LE, MET, AC/DC, Black Spiderman
    Well shit that's a hell of a list to pick 2 from.....I just can't do it!

    I let my STLE go a long time ago and don't really miss it. It's perhaps the most beautiful LE that Stern has made, but for me the modes just don't have enough variety and the playfield art is pretty dull. MET prem or AC/DC prem would be easy to pick up again in the future if you really wanted them back.

    #36 1 year ago
    Quoted from Frogman:

    Your wife isn’t on the list.

    This has bumper sticker written all over it

    ST LE is beautiful, but I've had it a long time. It might have to go on the short list for sure. I prefer MET over AC/DC but I've had MET longer and AC/DC is somewhat newer to me but I guess if it comes to it AC/DC would be on the go list.....Though I guess I have maybe 6 months before ACNC is here so I can hang onto AC/DC for a few months.

    So maybe thats it! Monopoly and ST LE up for sale now and AC/DC this spring. 1st world problems........

    Hate

    Quoted from Whysnow:

    Odds.

    #39 1 year ago

    Take a look at the six games you have owned the longest

    After the new restrictions to what stays and what can go, I would agree with you.

    #41 1 year ago
    Quoted from Monk:

    After the new restrictions to what stays and what can go, I would agree with you.

    Yeah, I didn't add restrictions at first because I wanted to see what people thought. But already had in my mind some that were not going, at least for now.

    #42 1 year ago

    Easy. The wife

    #43 1 year ago

    The only option that seems to fit is 'build on to house'. This can get better half approval by promising to give them a percentage of footage.

    #44 1 year ago

    Well if it isnt about money rent a storage unit and just rotate machines in and out of line up

    #45 1 year ago
    Quoted from Schabs81:

    Well if it isnt about money rent a storage unit and just rotate machines in and out of line up

    hmmmmmm hadn't thought about that! Climate controlled storage! Wouldn't need to be very big! Hey!

    Those big indoor ones with hallway after hallway of garage doors are super creepy though! I feel like I am on the Nostromo waiting for a Xenomorph (Internecivus raptus) to come around the corner and punch through my heart with his punchy mouth thingy

    #46 1 year ago

    Monopoly, obviously....TSPP also, the only reason I still have mine is because the wife likes it. Game bores me to death, I play it once or twice a year. I don't need a game to last an hour.

    Spider Man, AFM and Star Trek are all basically the same game - bash toy in the middle, fan layout - pick one or two and let them go. Of the 3, SM Black would be the hardest to replace.....

    -1
    #47 1 year ago

    Monopoly
    The Simpsons Pinball Party

    I'd sell those in a heart beat

    Let the wife be happy to see those go

    Sell the Star Trek LE to me..

    #49 1 year ago

    I had a storage unit for a bit and I can tell you that YOU DO NOT WANT ONE!

    Also, Spiderman is not as epic as it once was back when it was the latest and greatest game.

    LOTR plays way too long. TSPP plays long. STLE is ok but not an epic game compared to other Stern's IMHO.

    3 machines I would NEVER even consider buying are MMLE, MBLE, and ACNC.

    So there, I solved your problem. 6 less machines to wonder about. As soon as that LOTR is reassembled, dump it.

    I just don't understand people. You can always buy ANY machine on your list back from some nice soul sometime in the future or play ANY of them in just about any major city or any major show these days.

    You WOULD have some problems with machines that are much harder to replace. I wouldn't worry at all about selling games like those that you've posted. I sold my Tron and was like, "Oh well there it goes. Maybe some day I will buy another."

    Most machines in your collection are not there because they are well designed pinball games. I could point out flaws with all of them and why I don't like them but there's just no fun in that any more.

    Ten years ago there was no where to play this stuff. Today, the opportunities to play just about any game you want at any time are essentially endless. It's beginning to change the veteran collectors and players and in time, you will see the way as well.

    oh, I missed LOTR on the list - makes it even easier. Monopoly, LOTR, and TSPP.

    That was easy.
