    hello pinsiders,

    i am thinking of what game will be the next on my list. my small collection at the moment includes: medieval madness, ac/dc premium, the flintstones, lord of the rings and cirqus voltaire. i rather like original (unlicensed) themes and prefer them versus licensed titles. what would be your choice? it would be nice if you give me your advice!

    best regards ralf

    in no particular order
    White Water
    CFTBL
    Ironman

    #3 3 years ago

    You need a basher i.e.: a game where you just smack the ball around without thinking like Ironman, Dr Dude, WNBJM or a very nice EM

    thanks for the answers cftbl, dr. dude or ironman are licensed themes so they are not my choice. but white water maybe.

    what is wnbjm?

    Maybe add a non-DMD to the colloction? Space station, funhouse, or even earlier...xenon, paragon, flight 2000, etc....

    There are some great playing non DMD games that are unlicensed....

    Roadshow

    #9 3 years ago

    I'd mix in something older - think system 11. Go for DINER or TAXI...

    I'd recommend a Pat Lawlor game since you don't have one.

    Road Show has a billion things to do (great value).
    No Good Gofers is fun too
    Whirlwind is excellent

    Road show? Awesome unlicensed theme. And you can get them for less than 3000.

    Lionman!

    Afm or a tz wld be a nice addition to your collection imo but since u want a original theme maybe go wit a h rs, ww , wh20, ngg,Totan, tom or something up that alley.

    #15 3 years ago

    Get an EM. I have a small collection and I think it adds a great contrast. There is also something almost therapeutic about the chimes.

    Junk Yard is also a fun unlicensed theme.

    Another vote for Junkyard

    Roadshow is the biggest bang for the buck pin right now. Can be had all day everyday for less than $3k, has DMD, widebody, shaker, looks good, everybody loves to play it. It has everything but the kitchen sink.

    I like buying whatever's available. You get some different games you never thought of buying. I of course read reviews, watched video and so on but these weren't games I was actively looking for.

    If you're buying NIB, TWD, Alien, Total Annihilation are at the top of my wanted list.

    Skip the new ones and go back to the roots.

    #22 3 years ago

    Whirlwind, Taxi, and BK2K are absolute gems, and deserve all the affinity people have for them.

    Don't overlook some hidden treasures though. Games like Robo-War and Tx Sector are fantastic experiences.

    If you seek newer titles, White Water and Attack from Mars are among my personal favorites.

    #23 3 years ago

    Buy what you enjoy playing.

    /I never understand these threads

    #24 3 years ago

    I'd mix it up and get an old pitch and bat.

    #25 3 years ago

    Another vote for Fish Tales. I am limited by space to 6 pins and have a hard time parting with what I have. If I had the space, for sure a Fish Tales would be in my collection. My last spot was being saved for ToM or FT whichever came up first and now that is ToM.

    epthegeek, not everybody has the chance to play every game. where i live there are no big public possibilities. that's why i ask the pinsiders to get impressions.
    and this is a forum of pinball. why not ask this?

    because you will get 100 different answers and, in the end, buy a game you have never played either way. Do you have pinball arcade? You can get an idea of rule sets etc. from that.

    #28 3 years ago

    I just got a Fish Tales and really enjoy it. Maybe take a look at it.

    #29 3 years ago

    Op,
    I know you said no licensed themes but ....Pat Lawlor for the win, but not B/W, Stern - Shrek or Family Guy for the pin. Easily found in new condition from $5k to $6k. One has clean language and the other more adult (I know you can turn adult mode off on FGY, but why would you)? Each share a lot of bathroom type humor. It's good stuff really and a nice option is to swap roms and enjoy two tables for one. Rules are pretty simple and either is great for bashing balls and ball bashing recommended above. A number of multiballs enter the picture and the humor in FGY is the funniest FU@KING sh!T you've ever heard.

    Where are you located that there are rarely any pins around? Just curious.
