    What’s the best top 10 pins you’ve ever played?

    This list includes the guys/gals that have made it to most/all shows in their state and have played a grand majority of the “top 100” on pinside. If you don’t wish to participate that’s ok. Not looking for negative feedback; just honesty

    #2 83 days ago

    I've played just about everything there is. It's hard to nail down 10, but it would be something along the lines of this for me...

    STTNG
    LOTR
    RBION
    JJPPOTC
    TZ
    AFM
    AC/DC
    TAF
    Spiderman
    MM

    #3 83 days ago

    These are 10 that I like coming back to over and over again.

    AFM
    MET
    LOTR
    TAF
    IJ:TPA
    TSPP
    WOZ
    EBD
    RFM
    TS

    There are many others that I enjoy as well, but don't usually revisit as often (such as other long-time favorites like TZ, MM, STTNG, MB, and so on).

    Top10? It just doesn’t work that way.

    There’s days when I’d like nothing more than to play a game of Godzilla.

    Oh Levi stop preaching it's Christmas! Have a drink relax and list your favorite 10!

    I'm a newer player (past 3 years only) but I'm been through many trying to find the ones that resonate with me. In one of the harshest environments to stay......here are my favs!

This would be my top 10 list in no particular order Hobbit...AFMrLE...Metallica...MB...DI......TWD...IMDN...SternSW..ST...MM....but that’s just off the top of my head plenty more games were almost as fun.

    #13 83 days ago

    I’m no heavy hitter. But my current list is

    Tron LE
    GB LE

    Quoted from Pinballomatic:

    Target Pool you say
    In amongst all those modern games, I just know there has to a story behind that one.

    Hi, thanks for asking.
    I see pinball a lot like a game of golf - its great if you can long-ball the driver all day long, but I've always felt the true test of a really good player is someone who can master every club. Same thinking as 'every type of pin.'

    While the bulk of my collection is early 90s WMS, I also have a few GTB's from the 60s and 70s.

    I find Target Pool to be a simple yet challenging game:
    1. The centerfield triangle has slingshots on the TOP edges, which you have to use to carom the ball at a rounded arch of targets.
    2. The game overall requires a fair amount of well-timed nudging (just like back in The Day).
    3. Smaller-sized flippers and the typical punch they provided back then, make you 'goose' the ball into that upper arch.
    4. It's a unique target environment overall. With LONG deadly outlanes.
    5. When lit, like most older GTBs, it's a nice straight-forward art package to behold in today's era of LCDs and 'bling.'
    6. It's been in the IPDB EM Top 10 for some time now too - and personally I feel it deserves it.

    Again, my 2 cents.
    Everyone's mileage may vary....

    Thanks for that! Target Pool is my favorite EM and my favorite part of the game is the gong,gong,gong when you hit the 300 pt shots, especially when you can hit 2 or 3 of them in a row. Everytime I go to the Papa facility I will play about 20 games in a row on it. Only ever broke 10k one time, but what a rush!
