    Pinball Circus is the rarest. Have also played Kingpin.

    Best: AFM (I get my ACDC BiB this weekend, so this may change soon)
    Worst: basically every Gottlieb/Premier game. There are a couple of games that are just decent, and the rest are TERRIBLE.

    Also, I thought it was interesting that the OP listed ToM as the best and WoF as the worst. I'm not saying it is the greatest game on earth, but I enjoy WoF a lot more than ToM. ToM was the only WPC game I have ever had that I wanted to get rid of within the first week.

    Rarest:<Tied> Asteroid Annie and The Aliens (1980) or Night Moves Cocktail (1989)

    Best: <Tied> Haunted House (1982) or Airbourne (1996)

    Worst: Grand Lizard (1986)

    #104 5 years ago

    Rare - Kingpin

    Best - STLE

    Worst - I could play anything, to date the worst game I've played is WOZ

    #105 5 years ago

    Rare: varkon
    Best : Star Trek pro / acdc premium
    Worst: woz

    #106 5 years ago

    Rarest: BBB (one of the original ones). If you include the remades, then the rarest is Zaccaria Spooky.
    Best: Fireball EM (!!)
    Worst: **Not** WoF for sure, I love that Pin. Probably Jubilee (another EM !) or south park

    #107 5 years ago

    Rarest: Pinball Circus
    Best: TZ
    Worst: Orbitor 1

    #108 5 years ago

    Rarest: Wrecking Ball (pat lawlor hand made game) became banzai run
    Second rarest : Capcom Kingpin
    Best: ?
    Worst: ?

    #109 5 years ago

    Rarest: Original BBB
    Best: Tron, TZ, CV
    Least Favorites: Stargate, Baywatch

    #110 5 years ago

    rarest: atari 4 x 4 and I think atari neutron star (proto white wood) at cax.

    best: TZ, but I really like SM.

    Not sure what to call this, but I found it many years ago. Its sort of a pin, but I think it was part of a gambling setup.

    Rarest: Kingpin
    Best: Safecracker
    Worst: Bugs Bunny Birthday Bash

    Rarest game played/owned:
    Mystery Castle, which is amazingly fun for a scary themed game

    Best game:
    Tough call, but I'd say right now my fave is Safe Cracker. It would have been amazing if Bally would have continued making token pins.

    Worst game:
    All pinballs are awesome, but I guess the worst playfield and creative executions I've come across would be the 2015 Stern Wrestlemania or Mustang. Just not for me. Too bright, and not very fun. Yet, I'd still play them

    #113 3 years ago

    rarest played : BLY EM Star Ship (1)
    rarest owned : BLY EM Fore (80)
    Best : WMS EM Teachers Pet
    Worst : BLY EM Circus/Big Show

    #114 3 years ago
    Quoted from pinwiztom:

    Best : WMS EM Teachers Pet

    For a guy with over 300 games, that's some pretty strong words there. But it is a great game by one of the best designers ever IMO.

    #115 3 years ago
    Quoted from o-din:

    some pretty strong words there

    Truthfully (Glen Peter's) Heat Wave is my current favorite, but Teacher's Pet has held that spot for a longer time.

    #116 3 years ago

    It's hard to beat most any Williams from that era is what I've learned.

    #117 3 years ago

    Rarest - 1990 Gottlib "Nudge-It". Only 54 made.

    Best - WOZ LE

    Worst - Can't pick a worst. All pinball games are awesome in their own way

    #118 3 years ago

    Rarest: Pinball Circus
    Best: Twilight Zone (hard to pick just one thou).
    Worst: Orbitor 1

    #119 3 years ago

    Rarest : Camelot
    Best : Twilight Zone
    Worst : Dungeons & Dragons

    #120 3 years ago

    Rarest: Kingpin
    Best: AC/DC or Wizard of Oz
    Worst: Orbitor 1 or Hercules (I was gonna say ALL Atari pins suck, but I remember having fun with 4x4) or Varkon

    PS: Dungeons & Dragons and Grand Lizard on people's worst lists??!? You're breaking my heart!

    #121 3 years ago

    i think they are only 1 or 2 of Atari 4X4
    whereas Capcom Kingpin there were about 8or9

    Ah, well I guess when I was responding to "rarest" I meant "cause I haven't played it". God bless places like The Pinball Hall of Fame, ReplayFX, Arcade Expo and The Pinball Wizard in NH for giving people a chance to check out such rare games!

    #123 3 years ago

    Rarest: Gottlieb's "Critical Mass" --only 1 "prototype" in existence

    Best: It's a toss up. My favorite game is whirlwind, but it's not necessarily "the best" game.

    Worst: William's "Jubilee"

    #124 3 years ago

    Rarest: Banzai Run
    Best: LOTR hands down
    Worst: A lot of just OK machines but Sopranos drives me insane. Give me the F'in Money, over and over and over and over

    #125 3 years ago

    Let me throw out something here. The OLDEST pinball I've played: 1933 Rockola World fair Jigsaw.

    Sorry I had to down vote you
    I f'ing love sopranos
