Count Down. I had two, I sold one really cheap and I wish I hadn't. We need doubles for the machines at the MGC every year, and Count Down is a criminally underrated game that makes a great tournament game. I really with I still had the second one as it would make using it a lot easier.
DMD: Indy 500. A damn fine game with lots of strategy from the underrated Dennis Nordman.
EM: Card Whiz. One of those tables from Master K that would sing one one game and make you look absolutely silly on the next. Sign of a true player.
SS: Whirlwind. I could have made this game harder than it was, but I tapped this girl out years ago with trap/backhand shots to the Cellar Wizmode over and over and over...
Countdown. What a simple fun drop target game. Green, yellow, red, blue. I would love to find a QC example someday.
Genie and Paragon are two that I'd love to have again. If I ever get a bigger house I will have a whole room with just wide body pins in it.
I miss them all, but they probably won't be back. They all stayed long enough. There are still so many to own.
Quoted from littlecammi:
If you wanted a specific game enough to look for it and buy it, then why ever sell it?
Every once in a while you may find something that you really want and the only way to make it happen is to give up something else. Unless of course you have unlimited funds and space. But I have seen those with unlimited resources that still have no choice when they can no longer fit any more.
Attack From Mars. My son got all quiet and was on the edge of tears after we played our last game on it. It effectively ended his playing days, hasn't played a game since. That's not a huge deal for me as we are now playing more basketball, baseball & football.
Judge Dredd is my personal biggest regret as I sold it too cheap and i really like the game. Do you know where it is, flanker? I sold it to TomGWI and you bought it from him.
Quoted from littlecammi:
If you wanted a specific game enough to look for it and buy it, then why ever sell it? I still have every game I've ever purchased. But if someone offered me a boatload of money for my BBB and I decided to sell just for the cash - that I am sure is a decision I would later regret.
As others have said, the bane of pinball collecting is lack of space, funds, or both. Consider yourself lucky that you've never had to sell a game. For pretty much everyone else, that isn't reality. You get to a point where you don't have a choice. To bring another game in, something has to go.
Mike Hay has it now, I played it last Chi Expo when Jetzxi-Trophy+me visited his house, it looks great and played pretty well from what I remember but I was drunk, that was this night.....
