    Since we are not doing the house renovation this year, the basement is not expanding, and thus I will not be adding a 6th game. So one has to move out so I can get in on Iron maiden later this year.

    Which one? I’ve spent a lot of time collecting just the right set of 5, and eventually would like to add SS someday. I am super happy with all these pins right now - I may not even go for the Maiden, but Humor me-

    You can probably fit 2 folded up games in the space for one that is set up

    Fold up the game that gets the least amount of play. Maybe at some point you'll decide to move it after you realize it doesn't get played much. Or, you can start rotating your collection every once in a while like some folks do.

    I’m sure you could make room for a 6th pin somewhere. All of your pins are great in there own way, there’s no good answer as to which should go. If you absolutely cannot have 6 pins, I’d get rid of the pin youve had the longest and or played the least.

    You have a great collection right now. If I had to sell one, it would be one of the wide bodies. You only need one in that size collection.

    agree with a previous post. whichever game you play the least.

    I have a space for your 6th game

    Indy so I can grab it lol

    #8 1 year ago

    LOL you guys are no help! This is why I didn’t include a “keep one, fit it in the bathroom “ option in the poll!

    Half of the basement is my office, which I also use for recording. It is soundproofed with a raised floor and low ceiling so I can not fit a game in there, there is literally no more space unless I move the beer fridge or tv. Yeah, I know, horrible problem to have.

    I’ll take the beer fridge, problem solved!
    Thank you

    Instead of folding up a pair to keep them all at the house, put one on loan to a family member or friend, whomever you visit the most and trade out when you miss that game.

    Since I have a hard time letting some titles go, I have 4 on loan due to space restrictions.

    Get rid of twilight zone and that's that man was that easy I have no remorse at all

    #14 1 year ago

    Tough choice,need picture of existing room, have not played Houdini yet but want too, IJ and TZ nice different wide body games, maybe Monster Bash and then get the remake, or get rid of the easiest one you can get back down the road or which one not is best condition

    Great lineup! I'd move TZ.

    #18 1 year ago

    I'd move IJ.....right into my basement.

    #19 1 year ago

    You’ve got a great problem to have. Reminds me a lot of what my basement looks like.
    I think I’d have to let Houdini go, but it’s for sure not an easy choice.

    LOL...

    #21 1 year ago

    I'd remove that chair that's to the right of IJ... Or that TV!

    No doubt, it is a great problem to have. I am very happy with this lineup. IJ is what I am currently eyeing but every time I play it, I change my mind. Then I play it again and it drains SDTM from the lane to that single drop target and I get pissed off!

    That’s a big couch- that tiny remaining space is the basement tv room! although really we hardly watch tv down there

    See, problem solved!

    Don’t think that hasn’t crossed my mind.. the reason this all started was because we were planning on doing a home renovation this year but we just have too much going on (plus I did not like the 300K quote I got for just adding 1000 square feet including a bathroom)

    The plan was originally to move all the tv stuff, couch, etc into the new family room. But since that room ain’t there yet...

    So quick follow up ... it was Indy got the axe. Traded him for a very nice Scared Stiff, which has 100% WAF. So that ended up being an easy one.

    Indy is one of the few games that Ive let go and really miss.

    It's such a feature-packed game, but I just could not get into it - I know I'm in the minority, but maybe I'm not a good enough player. I love the Indy movies, and the theme is great - but SS is way more my kind of game, theme-wise, and it's simple dumb fun; same reasons I like MB

    This is a good idea, I have space limitations and have a few folded up in my pin room to save space (I’m not ready to let any go as of yet!)
