Looking to add a pinball
« on: May 17, 2013, 11:33:07 AM »
Hey everyone looking for ideas on my next pinball purchase. I do have a new one coming hopefully in December, but need to fill the void in my heart with one sooner. I want to keep the price at or below 2500. Something fast and challenging. Let me know what you think.

There is a Dirty Harry in the Tampa area for around $2100. Pinball Pimp on the Village has it

That DH is probably a very good option, if you like the theme (little dated and corny).   Excellent playing machine, though.

Flashburn's NGG is also an option, but at $2700.   Eric's games are pristine from what I could tell, though.   I was leaning towards grabbing this before a different pin I wanted popped up.

I may turn ID4 over soon, but not ready yet..   significantly less than $2500!  ;)

Good luck!!!

If you are looking for fast and challenging, JM is a great choice!

I enjoyed JM for a while.    All the scoring is in the Spinners and Multipliers.    That's the only downside to the ruleset.   But it has a great wizard mode, plays very fast, and there's a lot of strategy in the matrix.    I enjoyed owning it for awhile, and for the price (under $2k) it's a good choice.

hard for us to judge what would appeal to your tastes.

personally, i don't like 7 of the "Top 10" pins... :P
