I have a friend who is willing to trade his FIRE! pinball and Gottlieb Gladiator for one of my 90's era pinball machines. I have a data east simpsons and a judge dredd. I was considering selling them but not sure if I should trade one of those for his 2 pinball machines.

sounds close enough

I would not trade either of those titles for both.

Fire is pretty solid but gladiators...

Fire probably around 1400 itself

Simpsons around 2K
Dredd 2.3 to 2.5k range

If looking to shake it up ask about fire plus cash for Simpsons maybe just my opinion.

It sounds like a fair trade if you like either of his games.

I actually like both of his games but knowing what I could get for the simpsons and judges dredd if I sold them is why I am hesistant. I really don't think I would trade the judge dredd but would rather sell and get the $ for it. The simpsons is the one I am not sure about what to do.

Both deals sound relatively close money wise.

If it were me I would hesitate trading judge dredd for those two, but would probably do The Simpsons trade.

Data East Simpsons is a $2000 game? His 2 for the Simpsons is way in your favor I think. Better make that deal before he learns better.

He isn't into the pinball scene so he is just looking to get a 90's multi ball game so he won't change his mind regarding the trade

Fire and Gladiators are both waaaaaaaay better than DE Simpsons individually, but together it is a no-brained.

That said I think DE Simpsons is completely awful and I happen to like Gladiators more than most, so maybe I'm a little biased.

When I played gladiators I found it fun and very fast game play.

My own opinion is its nearly impossible to get an even dollar for dollar trade, given the differences on condition, real world pin price nuances, etc. Trading with a friend can
complicate things as you'll see the fruits of your trade well into the future.

I see it this way. If you are truly ready to give up one of your prized pins.......and truly enjoy the pin (s) you will be receiving, go forward and be happy.

I would trade de Simpsons for both for sure. I would struggle more trading JD but that's just because I like dredd.

Gladiators is a pretty fun,fast and underated game.
Fire is also fun but not as deep as Gladiators.I own both and they both get played.You could led you Gladiators out,looks awesomeimage.jpg
