...crap, thats more than 5. I hate this hobby.

#54 3 years ago

Twilight zone
Bram stokers dracula
Star Trek the next generation
Banzai run
Attack from mars

#56 3 years ago

IJ
TZ
LOTR
WH2O
BSD/ AFM tie

My list is like a lot on here , must be something to it.

#57 3 years ago

Only five; money no object. My picks are:
1) Black Knight 2000
2) Counterforce
3) Xenon
4) Centaur
5) Firepower

Alternate choices (if above 5 aren't available for whatever reason):
1) Nitro Groundshaker
2) Paragon
3) Future Spa
4) Secret Service
5) Banzai Run
6) Eight Ball Deluxe
7) Space Station
8) Iron Maiden (Stern)
9) Stars
10) Fireball

#58 3 years ago

I've thought about this a lot lately. Here are the top 5 I would not part with and currently own.
#1. Metallica Pro
#2. Funhouse
#3. BSD Dracula
#4. FishTails ( I have a 9.9 out of 10)
#5. Scared Stiff

I'd like to own - Circus Voltaire and that would make 6. I'd have a real time parting with Bride Of Pinbot as well. 10 Games sounds more reasonable.

#59 3 years ago

MET premium, TWD premium, GoT Premium, Williams IJ, ACDC premium.
I have a GBLE arriving shortly; which might displace one of the above.

#60 3 years ago

I500 AFM SM NGG AVENGERS (blue LE)

I will go out on a limb and say no one agrees with this line.

#61 3 years ago

Such a hard question. I'm trying to widdle down the collection and can't get to 16. Which 5 - no clue.

#62 3 years ago

Sweet topic as I should only keep 4 but now have 5.
What to do?

Tough to choose only 5!
I think the ideal number that pretty much everyone could deal with would be 24. But if only 5, then you need some variety with some short games vs long games, etc, etc.
Probably my blend would be:
SM - long game classic ritchie
MB - medium depth but lots of variety
AFM - classic layout with good flow & deep
CCC - continued software elevates
IM - short game classic Borg

Could also substitute as follows:
MM for AFM
Tron for IM
TF LE FOR SM
POTC for MB
ST Premium for CCC
Although all of this could change tomorrow...

Yeah, that's the 5 I'd pick (but I would change EBDLE to just EBD).

#71 3 years ago

The more accurate question would be if you can only fit 5, which 8 would you have? You know you'll find a way to squeeze 3 more somehow

#72 3 years ago
Quoted from jonesjb:

Assuming price is not a factor, and you couldn't resell any of the pins. Which 5 pins would you want in a collection of 5? I'm curious what fellow Pinsiders put as their picks. I'd probably go with:
Attack from Mars
The Shadow
Twilight Zone
White Water
The Walking Dead

is it a way to ask us what is our top 5?

#73 3 years ago
Quoted from colonel_caverne:

is it a way to ask us what is our top 5?

It is as it isn't... Think of this more as a pseudo discrete choice model. This question takes into account variety and longevity. For example, Medieval Madness and Attack from Mars are both top games, but I'd only include 1 in my hypothetical 5 pin collection. My preference goes to Attack from Mars, for a number of reasons.

#74 3 years ago

hmmm MM, Banzai Run, CV, Woz, Hobbit and or TBL on way and could change list!
