    OK folks, now it's time to rank your favorite EM categories... most to least favorite.

    Mine would be:

    1970's multiplayers
    1960's multiplayers
    Add-A-Balls (generally speaking... some are too unbalanced)
    1960's single players
    1970's single players
    Prewar
    Woodrails
    Bingo/Novelty

    Mid to late 70s multiplayers are #1 for sure followed by wedgeheads followed by woodrails. I need more time on add-a-balls though, friends swear by them.

    It would be better if you made this a poll Nic. Mine would be:

    1970's multiplayers
    1960's single players
    1970's single players
    Add-A-Balls (generally speaking... some are too unbalanced)
    1960's Multiplayers
    Prewar
    Woodrails
    Bingo/Novelty

    Yes but wouldn't that only be one favorite versus the whole range? It's fun to see how they relate to each other on the scale.

    I still kind of think of myself as a 1960s single player fan. With that said there are so many aspects to explore in this hobby. I'm going through a 70s multi-player phase this year and am having a lot of fun with it. I'll give almost any EM a whirl if remotely interesting, reasonably priced and relatively local.

    1960's single players (especially WMS)

    1960's multiplayers
    and a tie between Bingo/Novelty & Prewar

    Williams late 60's single player.
    Gottlieb 70's to end of EM Era any player configuration.
    Young young children any machine will do.
    Young children like single-players, their "Own" machine.
    Pre-Teens like 2-player machines, a meet and greet without the threat of others horning in.
    Men like 2- players as well, get back to the action without too much pause as the adrenalin rises with higher scores.
    Women prefer 4-players, couple against couple.
    Good luck with your endeavor!

    i sort of have mine set up in different sections or as i have a few to move soon will be. i have various baseball p&Bs splitting them up so ive categorized mine to the following 60s wedgheads, 60s gott multi player. williams 60s,( i dont currently own any 70s williams), 50s woodrails, and 70s bally (inc 2 ss ) 70s gottliebe 2 player , and gottlieb 70s wedgeheads. gun games i cant really rank them but if i put in priority what id like to add to in order of preference

    60s williams single players(styiling of the 60s++++)
    gottlieb woodrail
    70s 2 player gottlieb(jumping jack and lawman )

    does that suffice for a preference?

    I missed this thread after a side discussion Nic and I had regarding this very topic. Greta idea to thread it Nic...and thanks for clue-ing in my often clueless ass that it's out here. )

    woodrails
    add-a-balls
    60s replay single players
    60s replay multi players
    prewar
    bingos/novelties
    70s replay single and multi players

    #14 3 years ago

    Mine would be:
    Working
    Broken

    #15 3 years ago

    1960's multiplayers
    1970's multiplayers
    AAB's
    1960's single players
    1970's single players
    Woodrails
    Bingos/novelties
    Prewar

    All this being said, if I could only keep two games from my small collection they would be the 1956 United Star Slugger P&B and the 1956 United Bowling Alley ball bowler. If I could only have one category it would be the 1960's multiplayers (which I guess Star Slugger and Bowling Alley are, albeit 1950's).

    Late 50s and 60s Wms single and multiplayer games with two inch flippers.

    Late 40s and early/mid 50s Gtb single player games.

    70s Bally games.

    And the rest....
