    I Have room for a small collection. Just picked up a MMR LE. It’s an awesome game. Looking for help to fill the two to three more spots from the top 15 games. I rarely have the opportunity to play these games so I value your thoughts. I’m looking for fun approachable games and some challenge.

    I’m thinking about an Attack From Mars. Is it too similar to MMR?

    If you are only going to have only 3 then I would stay away from AFM. It is very similar to MM. It really depends on what YOU like (and your budget)! Is theme important to you? For example the gf and I are trekkies (TNG). So a STTNG in our collection is a must have and is a very good game. Twilight Zone and Monster Bash are also very good choices too but they can feel too easy after a while and in a small collection. Given the choices we now have I'd consider just having 1 WPC. Get a JJP and a Stern. 3 manufacturers, 3 different styles. The modern games are getting really good.

    For Stern I personally stay away from the Pro models as they have features missing/removed. I'd consider LOTR, JP, DP.. If you like bands then Iron Maiden and Metallica are good choices.

    JJP choices are somewhat more limited. They are all widebodies and heavy as f#$%. Dialed in is more generic. The others are movie themes so it depends on what you like.

    Given the parameters:
    ToM
    CV
    If you are a good tech: STtNG

    CV is my #1 not a huge fan of the theme, but that art.....

    To compliment you MMr LE:
    - Iron Maiden Premium
    - The Hobbit

    Three very different games from different manufacturers, all around the same price

    I own an MMr LE and an Attack from Mars and they do have similar layouts (I just wanted to own both at least at one point...)
    That said, one or the other depending upon personal preference is a good way to go if you only have room for three machines.
    I like the Iron Maiden Premium and Hobbit options above (I currently own a Hobbit but am selling it for a JP Premium)
    Ultimately it comes down to theme and then fun factor... if you can try out a bunch of machines, you'll see what you like...
    And based upon the way machines tend to be selling lately, if you don't like one, you can always change it up! ;-)

    My current line up is MMR, MB premium, Munsters, Metallica, Deadpool, Ghostbusters - all pro's and Hobbit LE. I like the idea of one from each JJP, STERN and CGC. My two cents - I would add Ghostbusters, great game but getting hard to find and getting older. The third would be Hobbit if you like a slower game that is long playing and a journey. I have also played Elvira house of Horrors and that was awesome. Monster Bash is also awesome but you need to get the premium or LE as the extras make it that much better. Good Luck, have fun and stay healthy.

    It doesn't need to be slow if you set it up correctly :)

    If you have a limited lineup definitely don't get AFM when you already have MM. You have the 90s represented.
    If money wasn't an issue, I'd go for JJP's POTC and Elvira's House of Horrors. And a JP if you are getting 3 more.

    More generally, I'd say get 2 newer Sterns. If you're going for 3 more games, 2 Sterns and a JJP.
    For JJP, try POTC, Dialed In, WOZ, or Hobbit if you like long-playing games. a regular Hobbit or Dialed In will be way cheaper than POTC.
    For Stern, take your pick. There's a lot of greatness in the top-15. JP, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Deadpool, Elvira, TMNT, Star Trek,and heck the new Avengers Infinity Quest looks great too. Those are all just incredible machines, regardless of if you get a Pro or an LE.
