    guys - if you had 25K can and NIB premiums were 12K NIB pro’s were 9K and used games were what you feel is fair, based on listings - what would be your buy? I would buy Premium Jurassic Park, deadpool pro and a used last action hero to round it out.

    I think a premium DP will be worth more than JP in the future.
    Otherwise, I buy what YOU like.

    I would buy all used. Premiums are worth around $9-9.5k and Pros around $6.6-$7k these days used, without the HST. Other DMD games are usually around $5-7k.

    I don't think the op is asking us to spend his money, I think he is asking how you would spend your hypothetical money if you had it to spend. The buy what you like is obvious if that is the case. I'd buy used too to stretch the dollar but what I'd buy seems to change with the weather. Right now Deadpool and Stranger Things premiums would be right near the top for sure.

    First off, welcome to PinRev
    Stoney Creek Pin Head!
    I'm a classics guy. I would do Medieval Madness and Attack From Mars and maybe a solid state version of Joker Poker
    ( gotta love the chimes)! That should chew up most of your budget. If you can find them used!

    What sort of game do you like? Is theme important to you? Do you want quantity or quality? How many games do you want to own at one time? How good are you at fixing things (some mfg's seem to require a bit more tweaking than others)?

    Need more direction.

    From experience, there is some satisfaction from owning the title you gave all that allowance money to back in the day.
    That's the title that brings back the memories for me.
    It may not have all the bells and whistles, but it holds a special place.

    I find the key is to have people to call on.
    When stuck somewhere it's great to PM someone in the area that can recommend pins on location in the area.

    Love EHoH...just outside my price range right now. One day though...
    I've flipped it a couple times and really liked it. Wifey liked it too so hopefully that helps the purse strings get a little looser...lol
