Hey, I am new to pinball. Been playing for about 4 months 4-5 hours a week. Just picked up a data east simpsons. Love it but looking at getting a second as I have room for one more...have played about 20 different pinball machines. (Addams family, attack from mars, street fighter 2, kiss, stranger things. Stern Star trek(my fav) stern batman, robocop, taxi, terminator 2, black knight 2000 and the new 2019 black knight ect.........)

Back to question...taxi was removed from location i didn't play it much because it ate my tokens (no deal on credits) and free play was set high. So I'm itching to play one bad. There is one for sale here. Same with a robocop...but I was wondering if I should just spend extra and get a new star wars home pin, (has deeper play then other games) and easy for my friends to pick up and they love the theme.....
Opinions?

Get the Taxi, great game and half the price of the SW pin. Then you spend the second half on a third pin.

The LAST game you should ever get is the SW home. Just so many better games

I ended up getting a whirlwind off another pinsider in Canada... still system 11 goodness..... never played one though. I'm sure ill love it since I love every pat lawlor game I have played!

I've had Taxi and Whirlwind. Taxi is better. Play it. Enjoy it, and when you get tired of it put it up for sale/trade. Rotating your pins can keep you in new pins pretty cheap. Enjoy!

Thanks for the tip! I'm trying to convince wife to put a third machine in.... I can get a taxi for a good price.
Then I can compair them and pick which one I want

Robocop is way cooler than taxi !

No way, Robocop is a game you play a couple of times and move on. Taxi will bring you back for more.

Taxi, Whirlwind both incredible. Trying to decide if I want Earthshaker, Funhouse, or a newer DMD game next! I think Taxi and Whirlwind are currently my favorite two games in my collection.

I have a local pinball arcade 5 minutes from me and bowling alley 3..... pinball arcade got rid of the taxi cabinet and kept the robocop.... they charge tokens for play. Robocop 2 tokens every other 3.... I tried taxi and it kept eating my tokens.... played robocop because freeplay was set so low.... but I am craving for taxi and they switched it for T2....which I'm really not a fan of..... its fun and all but something about taxi.....

WW is a great game. Fun house is good to. If you like a certain game that is all that matters. Doesn’t matter if others don’t. We all have different games we like and don’t like.

I had a Taxi a while back. Really liked it, so did guests. I'd buy one again if the price were right.

Go for a multi mode dmd is a great progression.
Too bad that SW home for 4K on the west coast won't ship.
