    A bit of a fun but interesting topic. What is the biggest netting game you have in your collection that you route?

    Every time I talk to people, I hear different crowd favorites, no one seems to agree. I guess the best way to determine the favorite games out there in different areas is ask the people who have them out making money. After all, cash talks!

    So what do you see as everyone's favorite game?

    Typically the newest game will get a boost for a month or two and then the staples will go back on top. It also depends on what the selection is. Most of my games are solid states with only 2 .75 games and zero $1 games.

    I don’t route games, but Paragon is my biggest earner at home.

    There is a house rule of $1.00 for a drain through the scissors flippers. $5.00 max for first time players.

    Fun rule.

    So far, Spaceballs.

    I took it to SFGE a couple of times when it hasn't been playable, and it's earned a whole 75 cents. I guess 3 people dropped a quarter in when hitting start didn't work. I always felt bad, so I put those quarters in the donation fountain at work, lol.

    Pinball would be Iron Man. Redemption it would be Chicago Gaming Company's Sponge Bob Jellyfish.

    I absolutely love this! I have a Paragon at home... Time to implement this rule!

    Addams Family all the time. It always earns the most and gets played more than any other game in a room with 6 pins. 27 years later it STILL out earns anything we have on location. And we are lucky to have 2 at 2 different businesses!

    I’m plagiarizing this rule for when fellow pinheads come over. I just got my paragon and it kills me that I scissor the ball so often because I almost NEVER did it on my Harlem Globetrotters. I guess it’s because I’m left-handed.

    Sorry, I should probably have posted this on a paragon thread

    I route Whitewater , AC/DC, Cirqus Voltaire , Avatar, Dirty Harry and Scared Stiff. Whitewater has made the most only because it's been on route the longest. But based on weekly averages, AC/DC is by far the best earner. The rest are within $10 of each other each week.

    I thought Super Mario Bros was the super secret, never fail, money maker.

    When I had mine it constantly outearned everything. It’s a terrible tournament machine though, and was traded for a game that also earns pretty nicely, Corvette.

    I dont operate too much anymore. But southpark, fishtales and addams always did great.
