Struggling to make a decision so I thought what better way to help me come to the decision than to ask my fellow pinsiders for some help.

If you could keep/buy only one out of the two poll options, which one would you go for and why?

I really don't like the Walking Dead but I'd never purchase Medieval Madness for home ownership. After getting extensive plays on a remake on location it's just too repetitive of a game to have in the home environment.

MM is instantly fun for anyone who visits, but it's pretty straightforward game if it's your only pin. Actually beating the whole thing is easier said than done, but it's not complicated. If you rarely have long stretches of time to play and want quick and easy games that you can master easily, get MMr.

TWD is brutal on new players, but deep rules that would last you a long time. If you plan to play a lot of pinball enjoy a little strategy and don't really care if non-pinball friends have much fun, get TWD.

Thanks for the comments and the votes will give it another week and see how the poll stands before making a final decision.

Wd for sure
Way more challenging and replay value at home

I'd get TWD pro and money towards another pin.

Quoted from Boiler415:

Both are great games, but I'd personally go with TWD for the reason Boiler listed above. Either way though, you can't go wrong...

Toss a coin buy one and when you get bored sell and buy another this is not marriage .

MM is one of the best of all time. It's a classic for good reason.

However, I think TWD might be the greatest pin ever coded. The pin is punishing enough to prevent you from walking all over it, and there are SO MANY ways to approach it.

I always enjoy my games on MM, but I think you get way more game for your dollar with TWD.

Good luck

People mention non pinheads not having fun with difficult games but my GBLE is a favorite of nearly everyone who plays it despite its difficulty.

I vote for TWD because I think MM would get old if the only pin. At one point my only
pins were MM, LOTR and Tron and that actually worked out great and was a very fun line up as all pins balanced each other very well.
