    Quoted from dr_nybble:

    I was less looking for personal "bolted to the floor" and more what the marketplace shows. Or if you were trying to buy a certain game, was it surprisingly hard to shake one loose?
    I guess if we had access to the underlying data we could probably determine this empirically!

    I was thinking about this and I would say Ghostbusters Premium at least in my area, Stranger Things is getting really hard to find and the Big Lebowski.

    I have sold games, and then bought them back
    Because I missed them.

    I was happy with my collection until BOND was announced, so Munsters LE has had to go.

    I will miss it, but out of all my games that are bolted to the floor, this was the one I had to make a choice on.

    Need a bigger place TBH

    I want to say that most of my 90s games are bolted but the truth is a very generous offer would make me sell them all.

    Quoted from DanQverymuch:

    I have said before that my Diamond Plate FunHouse is never leaving. When my wife bought it for me for Xmas 2008, it rekindled my love of pinball, and when she died in a freeway accident 15 months later I figured that now it would be a permanent fixture!
    But I am tempted, seeing them go for 4+ times what she paid these days... hmmm... maybe she'd want me to get that Rush I'm having difficulty coming up with the cash for...

    If I were you and I didn’t need the cash I would not sell this…I feel you would regret doing so if you did.

    Hell, I still have 9 of the first 10 games I bought, the first one probably 30 years ago, the others well over 20 years ago.

    Eventually they will all be sold, I imagine.

    Quoted from JustJared:

    I live in a pinball desert. I'm between KC, St Louis, DFW, OKC areas. Not much is available in my area.
    However, one game on my list I want to play (which means I would have to buy it, play for a while, then pass on) would be Barracora. The game looks so classic, strategic, and timeless. Who knows, may be a dud in person, but I've wanted to find one.
    No games are truly bolted at my place, I only have room for 3 games. BM 66 was my grail game, but now that Rush is in the lineup, it is hard to choose.
    I would like a JJP again. Only if I had more space I could "bolt" something down. I think the longest I've owned a game was 6 months. However, I'm new to the hobby and just want to play everything. Most of my turnover has been slowly stepping up to more expensive games. A bolted game to me would be one I got, loved, and knew if I got rid of it, the chances of finding another like it would be very slim.
    I dig the ride, who cares about the destination.

    Come out to AZ... Star Fighters arcade has one in their vast collection out on the floor to play!!!

    Quoted from Dr_Gonzo:

    Ithink he was very lucky to find another in good condition. There's just something about that art and gameplay I don't think I can let go of.

    I know.

    Kinda had a similar situation with. My brothers Funhouse.
    I have gotten after he passed away.
    Owned the machine for sometime.
    Realized I got bored of it and it’s taking up space,but could never sell it.
    So now I put it in local small business and let people experience Rudy !!
    Very satisfying seeing people play it enjoying it.
    Share the love of pinball!!!
