I'm lucky we've got one in a pub near us that's in really good condition so I've spent a lot of time on it, it's an amazing pin!

Ah awesome, love finding pins in pubs. My local has an Addams but whoever is operating it isn't looking after it so it doesn't play all that well sadly

Well the multi-ball is only 2 ball but it kinda doesn't matter as it's so frantic anyway. Good risk reward scoring system too

Welcome to the CFTBL owners club !, I've had mine for around 3 years and I still love playing it just as much now. Great artwork, music and gameplay.

I had one a few years back. Only had it 3 days and traded it as I couldn't get into it. Still if I had chance of another at a good price I would like to try again. I have heard many good things about it.

Nice video by the way.
Always looking for a bargain.

Well I ended up moving Creech on. It's an excellent game but perhaps lacks a bit of depth. Possibly better in a larger collection. I think if you're like me a tend to have just one pin, there might be better options out there. But it does have a tonne of charm.

I've owned every pin in the top 20 bar LOTR and Monster Bash. Got a creech for £1500 a few years back and it's in my top 3. Easy to understand rules, great sounds and art. I loved it

Favourite thing about Creech is the multiball. Nailing the super jackpot is so satisfying. Very skillful game

Picked mine up for £500 fully working and sold it on for £900. That was only about 4 years ago.

All pins are crazy money in today's terms but I still won't pay over £6/700 for one.
Most I ever payed was £1100 last year for a totan.

Would love a modern stern pin like ghostbusters or similar but until I can get one from an op for less than 1k it will never happen for me.

Always looking for a bargain.

I loved the video, but if it's not right for you, then you did the right thing.

I hope you don't mind me asking, but how much did you move it on for? I really like this Pin, but it's hard to gauge market value, as it seems all over the place!

Cheers

Thanks mate. It was a tough call letting it go as it did so much right. I wasn't sure I'd done the right thing at first but am really happy with my Ghostbusters that I got to put in it's place. You're absolutely right it is hard to value it. They don't come up for sale all that often, I think there was only around 7000 ever made and a lot of the ones that have survived have really poor holograms in them. I sold it for £3000, however I may well have been able to get more as it sold within an hour of advertising it. Not only that I had like 5 inquiries almost straight away. Guess like all these things they're worth whatever someone is willing to pay. I made a few quid on it so it all worked out for me thankfully

Thanks for the reply mate and that is good to know. In my opinion I t's so much harder choosing a pinball over an arcade cab due to the more limited availability and choice. Plus, the prices seem to be all over the place!

Probably nearer £2500 actually after a quick search. Still a better choice than a £6k MM, CV, MB etc
