    Quoted from wipinball:

    I only have 3 so far and one of them is bolted down

    Awesome comment, "only 3 so far", "one bolted down".

    #52 4 years ago

    I only have one so far SW Premium and that's never leaving. JP Premium on the way...
    I'm not the trade flipping type, most likely just buy to keep.

    #53 4 years ago

    TNA and Joker Poker are bolted down, gets harder after that.. alien star, fire power, count down, incredible hulk, amazing spiderman, sinbad... tough to choose just one, not to mention those I still want to buy.

    #54 4 years ago

    Big Game
    World Cup Soccer
    Dipsy Doodle

    #55 4 years ago

    Maybe GOT pro or DP LE but i’m sure they’ll all leave in due time. They all get stale after a while and I like rotating them out rather than letting them sit unplayed.

    #56 4 years ago

    Attack from mars

    #57 4 years ago


    Going on 13 years. Even completed SDMEW. Still not going anywhere.

    #58 4 years ago

    JJPPoTCLE (This will never be sold unless I lose my job. I can't explain how good this game is, obviously in a home environment where everything works and you can hear it.)
    HOBBIT Smaug Edition

    The pic should explain the last two...

    I can’t do this I have more than 3 I won’t part with.

    #60 4 years ago

    I hate thinking about parting with any of them

    #61 4 years ago

    3 is simply not enough for me

    #62 4 years ago

    Black Knight

    Honorable Mention: TWD Prem.

    #63 4 years ago

    I will eventually whittle, but I’m not sure I could get it down to 3...but since you’re asking, probably would go with

    Family Guy

    #64 4 years ago


    I am keeping all of them. Was hard to pick three.

    #65 4 years ago

    PotC LE
    BM 66
    AFM LE

    #66 4 years ago

    I only have one, Baywatch, and it is bolted to the floor. Ugh, I know, but I paid to much for it. I bought every possible upgrade for it. And I could never get enough money for it to recoup what I’ve put into it. Plus, I really do love the cheese factor and shots. Will be purchasing more pins in the next couple months but Baywatch will be here to stay.

    #67 4 years ago

    Gosh. I really like all of mine... so pretty tough call.

    I guess if it came down to it I’d keep:

    1. Indiana Jones
    2. Fathom
    3. Iron Maiden

    #68 4 years ago

    Kozmik krooz’r

    #69 4 years ago

    ACNC (and I won't even have it until December)
    WH20 (except...)

    This only applies to my current games, right? If I ever score an AFM, I don't think WH20 is bolted as tightly as it appears.

    Kinda sucks because I'd hate to give up my CFTBL and SS...I even have a soft spot for RBION and MSF, but they just don't compare to my bolted 3.

    #70 4 years ago

    AFM, TZ & Ironman. In general, I hate to part my pinball machines but lack of space is always my issue.

    #71 4 years ago


    #72 4 years ago

    1.JJPPOTCLE(can't explain how good this game is)
    3.IJ(had cq and sold it and regretted it ever since and bow to get another soon hopefully)

    #74 4 years ago


    I admit, I AM a cookie cutter

    #75 4 years ago

    The 3 I've owned the longest


    #76 4 years ago

    I’m confused about your pole

    #77 4 years ago

    1) The Simpsons Pinball Party
    2) Hobbit Smaug
    3) Diamond Lady

    #78 4 years ago

    Batman 66 Catwoman Edition

    I'll buy new from any manufacturer except JJP.

    #80 4 years ago

    Boy, currently the three I have

    Star Wars

    If I had drop one right now I guess it would be Hobbit but I love the cinematic integration. Would be hard to choose. Not as wild about the POTC theme, SW just kicks your butt constantly, and Hobbit just isn't as interesting from a playfield perspective. But all of them are fantastic and would be tough to see them go. If JP2's artwork were better, that would be tough one for me.

    #81 4 years ago

    1) JJPOTC LE
    2) Hobbit LE
    3) WOZ ECLE (wife will never part with it)

    4) ACDC Prem

    #82 4 years ago


    Besides being games I really enjoy playing, all three have a lot of sentimental value for me too.

    #83 4 years ago

    Indiana Jones Pinball Adventure

    #84 4 years ago

    I'm not sure if there is a specific game I would "never" part with. I guess I like changing it up.

    #85 4 years ago

    It would be difficult for me to let go of a game that I essentially built from just a playfield...
    Or, one that I won for taking 1st a tournament...

    Outside of those, everything has it's price. No such thing as a keeper in this hobby.

    #86 4 years ago

    Interesting to see how many people list Hobbit. Considering how much negativity that seems to surround that game. It would be in my top 5 or 6.

    #87 4 years ago

    You meant 30, not 3 right?

    Fast Draw

    One from each era...

    #89 4 years ago

    Tron all day baby! The game never gets old and the soundtrack is fire!

    #90 4 years ago
    Quoted from fisherdaman:

    Tron all day baby! The game never gets old and the soundtrack is fire!

    This would be on my list too...of course, I have to get one first...

    #91 4 years ago

    Wonkale or potcle

    #92 4 years ago

    Centigrade 37
    Addams Family

    #93 4 years ago

    I'd have to say none.....I certainly have my favorites, but their all for sale at the right price

    #94 4 years ago
    Quoted from Isochronic_Frost:

    Recently my local beer garden decided to remove the pin and replace it with god damn VIRTUAL CORN HOLE of all things. Haven’t been back since.

    Just played that the other night...actually enjoyed it more than Golden Tee

    #95 4 years ago
    Quoted from EricHadley:

    I’m confused about your pole

    That’s a private conversation between you two.

    #96 4 years ago

    Tough, I have always kind of constrained myself to pins which were a particularly good deal, or priced under 1k, so moving them along would mean I very likely would never get them again. There is a price on everything, but the ones people would need to throw the most at me (above market value) to move along would be:

    Cheetah (Since the new ROM, this game is just about the perfect classic game, and rare!, would need to throw a lot of cash on the glass to find this again, so even with the high appreciation, I would not want to part with it.)
    Terminator 3 (So undervalued next to TSPP and LoTR which were released around the same time)
    High Speed (My kids will disown me if I ever move this along. Pretty under valued as well)

    #97 4 years ago

    they are all replaceable and I have learned one thing over the years that nothing is bolted to the floor.

    #98 4 years ago


    #99 4 years ago

    1) Metallica (Premium)...It's an amazing rush every time I play.
    2) Hardbody...Seriously, I value it more then it's worth.
    3) ?

    #100 4 years ago
    Quoted from Isochronic_Frost:

    When I can finally afford a Walking Dead it’ll be a keeper. Loved that game. Recently my local beer garden decided to remove the pin and replace it with god damn VIRTUAL CORN HOLE of all things. Haven’t been back since.

    What exactly is Virtual cornhole? Like they setup some Ps4 and play or is it a real bar arcade version?
