I regret selling my DK and DK Jr. I wanted pins and more room for pins. I will probably never get back to arcade games unless I can find a Dragons Lair or a Star Wars.

Flash Gordon, Sinbad, WH20, Genie, Cyclone, and Flip A Card are the ones I miss the most and would definitely own again given the chance. To some extent I kind of miss them all for one reason or another.

Except Pool Sharks.

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...

The only one I really regret is my NIB CV. I have a really nice CV on loan currently, so that's nice, but I'll never be able to get back that nice of a CV for what I sold my original for and it's the only one I wish I had back.

TZ, Gilligan, RFM/SWE1, Rollergames, not so much.

Countdown. What a simple fun drop target game. Green, yellow, red, blue. I would love to find a QC example someday.

Looking back at your collection history

Speaking of, you seriously need to update your collection history (where's Luci?)

At least tell me that Luci box was real! Or at least the hole in the box ...

I'd almost have to give you thumbs up for this, as if you were going to have 1 pin and 1 pin only. TZ or LOTR would be the best picks.

Oh its real, and Spectacular!

Edit----I think I will skip adding a poll, wow what a variety of pins being missed, I swore before starting this thread there was going to be 56 people lamenting the loss of their old Hollywood Heat.

#67 6 years ago

None, because I haven't sold or traded any yet. But that's going to change soon.

#68 6 years ago

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.

#69 6 years ago

No ragrets here buddy!

#70 6 years ago

HS II and freddy. If i had fishtails it would never leave.

CFTBL - "Move your car!!!"

#72 6 years ago

I miss them all, but they probably won't be back. They all stayed long enough. There are still so many to own.

#73 6 years ago

My WW...she gave great blow jobs during those hot summer months

After playing Nimblepins's Shadow I would have to say Shadow.

Indianapolis 500 and Card Whiz. Two very different games from different times, but man... they were great players!

Bad Cats. Don't regret it because it went to a good home but I miss it way more than any other pin I have sold.

#79 5 years ago

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.

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.

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.

I was surprised to see you sold that one.

Tron LE. But I got it back!

Iron Man. But I'm getting it back!

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.....

My HEP Cactus Canyon.

Never uncrated it. Just sold it as I tried to deal with the real estate market collapse.
