    This is tough. I decided to not have an EM, even though I really wanted to put one in there. I love drop targets.

    Stern Beatles - Drops, spinners, fun music, and the machine looks great.
    Sega Maverick - I own this one and it's super difficult. I love all the drops, the multi-ball, and the large DMD screen.
    Stern Stars - Drops, spinners, and chimes. It's a classic.

    honorable mention games that I eliminated.
    Stern Star Trek - I love the flow.
    Stern Flight 2000 - Difficult, but achievable multi-ball, spinners, and fun.
    Bally Flash Gordon - I love everything about it.
    Gottlieb Joker Poker - Lots of drop targets and chimes.

    I love many of the trios mentioned so far. My answer would change weekly, but today I'd select:
    The Addams Family - NicoVolta spent some time explaining this pin to me at the Roanoke Pinball Museum and I finally understood the hype.
    Quicksilver - I loved this one at TPF a few years back when dothedoo brought his to the show.
    Galaxy - my wife likes it best out of my current collection.
    It kills me not listing an EM. Dixieland, Jet Spin, or Wiggler would really round this list out properly if I could have 4 pins.
    List will likely change next week.

    From my own memory of being to Budapest flipper museum which I am pretty sure has almost every pinball in existence then I would pick.

    #take five for the reason that I was extremely good at it to my surprise.
    X-Men (Pro) because it looks flipping awesome
    #haunted house just because I found it to be lots of fun even though I wasn't that good at it.

    It does change so very hard but for me right now...

    Attack from Mars
    Creature from the Black Lagoon
    Alien
    But all heavily customised to my liking...

    I would have to have my 3 retheme customs as well in a different room!
    Mad Max
    Jaws
    And..Project M.....

    #108 2 years ago

    I was a fool and sold my first pin which is one of the three in this list.

    1. Whitewater
    2. The Shadow
    3. Bram Stoker's Dracula

    the extension goes:
    4. LotR
    5. Kongo

    I like the extension of the rules to allow more pins! Lol

    3 games.

    Hm. For me a smaller collection would need to have many ways to play the same game. With this criteria in mind I am choosing a pinburgh bank as follows:

    Newer: AC/DC preem. There are at least a dozen ways to play this game. Thank you Lyman.

    OG Solid State: Warlok. This game was ahead of its time with rules. Depending on style of play there are 2-3 ways to play this game as your ball progresses. Kirk post flipper layout demands attention and respect at all times.

    EM: this is the toughest one as rulesets are more limited with the technology of this vintage. The game that has that “1 more game quality to it more than any other game I can think of is Abra-Ca-Dabra. An incredibly well balanced game that requires accuracy, patience, skill and technique.

    3, That’s the magic number...

    1 - Addams Family - Great playing game, still seems new to me even though it’s hitting 30 years old
    2 - Paragon - Great art, and solid game play. Love the wide body format
    3 - Surfer / Surf Champ - Great art and solid EM performance. Spent many hours on this machine.

    Willy Wonka CE - great shooting game. Colorful approachable to guests.
    James Bond LE - unique layout tons of modes and things to do. I’m a massive Bond fan.
    Punchy the Clown - just in case LTG come to town and stops by. Or I’d settle for MMR Royal if I can’t find a good PTC.

    Metallica Premium.
    First game I ever owned, I still have it, and I haven't finished modding it after 6 years. I'm a massive metalhead so theme is a huge win for me. And the more I get into pinball, the more I realise that I really lucked out on choosing this on theme alone to buy NIB. Also, the 2018 code update makes this game one of the deepest rulesets outside of the "newer" games.

    Godzilla Premium.
    2nd game I've ever owned. Had it since May. I'm sooo happy that I made that "buy" decision. Just the most complete and deep package in all of pinball. And this is the first 3 flipper table I've ever taken to this quickly. I've just started modding it and look forward to doing so for as long as possible. So much to shoot at. So many multi balls. Such a great light show. Such a different layout. Such beautiful artwork. Great music and callouts. Just ..... everything.

    Iron Maiden Premium
    This is the game I nearly got instead of GZ. If I could, this is number 3. And one big reason would be how differently it shoots to the other 2 on my list. Another is that this is the only 4 flipper table I've ever taken to. Using them all felt intuitive from the start. Then there's the theme. I'm a metalhead, so this table scratches my itch. There's some good toys and interactions in the layout. Plenty of flow to. And Maiden's classic mascot Eddie fits seamlessly into some fantastic artwork.
