I’m thinking about a new Alien but wasn’t sure if they have more problems than other new pins because they’re a new company.

I am aware that many new pins need adjusting I’ve had more problems with Venom and Maiden but was able to fix everything without needing new hardware.

Early on they had some issues but don’t worry about that at all. They got everything worked out and Alien is an unbelievably durable and cool game. I sold mine and miss it dearly, but I had beaten the game so was time for another challenge. I definitely see one coming back at some point.

The longer I'm in the pinball hobby, the harder this list gets.

Right now:

Beatles - I like the distinct modes, the loop shot, magnet, and spinning record disc. Nice light show. Approachable. Difficult. Fun. Drop targets and spinners! Yay!
Flash Gordon - So difficult but such a great game for the time it was made. I love drop targets and spinners.
Space Station - I'm addicted to condition green multi-ball and the music this pinball machine plays.
Total Nuclear Annihilation - Love the music and lights. So difficult.
El Dorado - Drop targets are my thing. Making the knocker go off never gets old.

I could probably be just as happy swapping out Space Station for a different System 11. Taxi probably being my favorite.

I've giving this some thought and I think you need 5 different designers and at least 2 eras- Here we go:

Borg - Tron, Metallica
Lawlor - DI, TAF
Elwin - Anything but Avengers
Ritchie - AC/DC, GOT, High Speed
Nordman - WOF, WH20, I500
Modern Classics - Bond 60th, TNA, Beatles

This would provide lots of variety and al are excellent games

#957 86 days ago

MBrLE, MM Royal edition, GB premium, JP prem

The last one is the hardest:
Either GZLE or MET MOPLE

My five games would have to span the years. I can't put into words the sheer joy I have experienced over the past year since being reintroduced to pinball after a *very long* hiatus. Playing the first three again recently sparked wonderful memories from when I played them in my youth even though I had not seen any of them in decades! Playing the last two on the list made me question why I had been away for so long and what else I had missed. Getting to Pure Imagination on Wonka in my home game room last night brought a huge smile to my face while reminding me how much I have enjoyed Lawlor designed games.

Grand Prix
Harlem Globetrotters
MM
Willy Wonka
James Bond

If I got to pick it would be

GZ Pre/LE
MMR
STTNG
Shadow
GB Pre/LE

If my wife got to pick it would be

MB
GZ Pre/LE
Scooby
TOTAN
NGG

With us comprising it would end up being

GZ Pre/LE
MB
MM
STTNG
Scooby

Which is what we own, lol.

Ultimately we would love to have space (and $$) for about 12-15 games. We already know what that list would be as there are some from our past we would love to have back (RS, NGG, IJ, Shadow, Original JP, TOTAN, GB, and some newer titles like JP (stern), Avengers, Star Wars)

Picking 5 ain't easy but I am thankful for the ones we do have.

Everyone always wants more. If you have 5, you want 15. If you have 15, you want 30. So on and so forth. I know a guy that has 153 and has a wishlist for more.

Can't even fathom that. So many would just sit there collecting dust and not get played.

Not only that but it feels like all you would be doing is working on pins all the time.

1. Quicksilver
2. Cheetah
3. Big Game
4. Superman
5. Rush

#965 84 days ago

I'm actually pretty happy with my collection. I own
WCS
NGG
WH2O
CP
5 the dream would be a MM though realistically prolly a FT as I miss that game.

#966 84 days ago

Hmmm...
I've been on this thread a couple of times over the last 5 years and have made quite a few different choices

Top 5 (plus 1) as of today:

NBA Fast Break
Monster Bash
Demo Man
Capcom Breakshot
Medieval Madness
Jack*Bot

#967 84 days ago

Theme is big for me but still has to be a great player and I’d probably want something a little different with each so I’d go with:

MM
AFM
IJ
LOTR
Godzilla (Prem)

Funny I don’t own any of these currently but have owned each in the past except Godzilla.

#968 80 days ago

Tron
Jonny mnemonic
Eight ball deluxe
Godzilla premium

Walking Dead Premium

Honorable Mentions to NBA Fastbreak, Fish Tales and Jungle Lord

In general really happy with my current lineup. NBA Fastbreak is super fun and under appreciated. Fish Tales is a classic. Both are long term keepers. Kinda want to send them off to be restored.
