its a pretty good list

#3 6 years ago

Pretty expensive....

Quoted from dementedwarlok:

Thats what i was thinking. It has taken me about 6 years to put together what i have now. It also helps my wife is fully on board with pinball.

#5 6 years ago

Luckily, they're closer to being ordered cheapest to most expensive...rather than the other way around.

#6 6 years ago

It has taken me about three years to put together what I have now. It also helps that I have no wife.

#7 6 years ago

I pity any man who is married to a pinball hater. Bad choices!

I am so envious.

When you find that spirit, let me know if the seller has two.

I know nothing of this game and don't see prices for it on boston pinball or pinball price.

I take it that it's rare?

These days decent #2+#4+#8+#9+#10s' will cost you about 35K in cash. I realize ur not going to buy them all instantly but man, that's a lot for a few titles I really consider to not have a ton of replay value. I find MM and MB specifically to not have great longevity unless you play group pinball a lot. League, for example. My fav out of the ones you listed would be AFM with an upgraded sound system.

#16 6 years ago

Best of luck to you and your list. Esp. that Spirit. Find it if you can!

There's a couple in Il.

Wait a minute. Who is she, the tooth fairy? Can't be your wife. The only list my wife ever gives me are chores she expects me to do (instead of play pinball or play guitar).

#19 6 years ago

Tis the wife.

#20 6 years ago

Did she give you any money too, that's an expensive list!

Rare, been in high demand lately, its an amazing game. I would expect 4k at the VERY least, probably more. Someone on here casually mentioned selling theirs and im pretty sure people were throwing themselves at it.

#22 6 years ago

So what I am taking away from all of this is that it is OK to be high maintenance as long as it's pinball high maintenance.

#23 6 years ago

She hasn't thrown me any money yet to help out lol.

#24 6 years ago

It's only a $40,000 list, what's taking so long?

I don't know if even $4k Spirits exist anymore....At least stateside here.

Mine encouraged me to purchase my FUNHOUSE and TOTAN ! She likes Rudy and gets a kick out of his call outs! Lol

LOL @ no replay value with MM, but AFM is your favorite. MM is a DEEPER AFM! LOL!

AFM is faster, but MM has more stuff to do. I guess it's preference, but I do find MM tougher than AFM. It's much easier to rule the universe than beat battle for the kingdom. Much easier.

#28 6 years ago

I could do without mm and afm I don't want those titles. I have my own list which I am still trying to figure out.

#29 6 years ago

She likes the monsters. I like that list.
