10 Pinball Arcade Tables To Buy Before They Are Gone

For the uninformed, The Pinball Arcade will be removing all Bally/Williams tables from purchase after June 30th, 2018. However, if you’ve purchased those tables before that date, you’ll be able to keep playing them and even redownloaded them on the platforms you’ve purchased them on.

I’ve been getting quite a few requests on recommendations for which tables people should get, but that’s a difficult thing for me to do. I wasn’t planning on doing a video like this, but I figured I would try and nail down a list of 10 recommended tables for those wondering what to purchase before they are gone.
