Suppose you could only own one pinball game for the next 2 years.

Two conditions:

1. You get the game for free.

2. After 2 years, the game is removed and you get no payment for it. So the collector value of the game is irrelevant.

Then you can go back to owning whatever you like.

I play CV the most, so I guess I would pick that.

WOZ. I don't think I'd get tired of trying to get to SOTR.

If it had to be one, it would be Attack from Mars

I’d flip a coin between Wh20 or AFM le

Nope. This has been asked too many times already. The only correct answer is Judge Dredd. That way I could take a hammer, and smash it into little bits. The pinball world would thank me for there being one less of that piece of shit in the world.

With my free time relieved of all my games I'd solve peace in the Middle East and probably invent a new type of power that would free the world of work. But alas it is not to be, because I keep playing my games instead of solving world hunger.

No idea what that means but I thought I would come up with some obscure acronym to confuse someone.

In all seriousness, right this second, it would be BSDracula. I still love it and probably play it the most. Good question. Don't sweat it has been asked before IMHO. Always fun to talk about and not everyone has seen it.

Agree, been on the forum for over half a decade and don't really give a crap what post topics are redone. If I have seen it before or don't care I don't click - pretty easy on my part.

I would have to say WH2O or TSPP - could only bring two of my games to Tokyo for a few years and I chose Hobbit and WH2O. Have the delta update in TH but WH2O still gets more play from guests. Wish I brought my TSPP but will see it in a few.

Y'all need to relax. As long as Pinside continues to add new people you can expect to keep seeing the same types of questions being asked in different ways. Think of it as a good thing.

i got it for my wife and was really disappointed with it at first, I thought it was dumb.

then it grew on me, now it's pretty much my favorite

ironically, my wife didn't want to get our TAF, now she camps out on it

#36 8 months ago

I would also pick CV

#37 8 months ago

Addams Family Gold Collectors Edition.

#38 8 months ago

Well since I wouldn't be paying for the game or anything, I'd probably pick something super rare. Maybe BBB or Kingpin or King Kong. For those 2 years, I'd bring it to shows and it'd be a great conversation piece--even if they're not the best playing games. The evil in me would charge people a buck a play, and I'd use the money to buy something nice after my 2 years are up. The nice in me would donate the money to charity.

I'm quite relaxed right now. However I feel the need to grab a dictionary to look up your use of the word "different". Because I'm guessing it's different from mine.

I'm confused by his use of the word "New."

No Good Gofers. Shooting for holes in one won't get old.

#47 8 months ago

I could see myself being super satisfied with a simple machine like Black Hole or BSD... even Jackbot. But, if push came to shove, WOZ would be my choice.
