Alrighty then. TAF it is. So anywhere between $1400-1800 cash and I should be good then I guess.
that will just about do it...great couple of games..hard choice but 100 bucks would sway me just look out for magnet burn on TAF ( will be discolored in the clouds..kinda yellow is the burn)
I played the hell out it the moment it came out, it was the second game I got when I started collecting, and I still get excited everytime I turn it on now.
Some people don't like it (as with every single machine), but so many things speak volume for it.
In terms of gameplay, I had both and both have left. That's not to say they are boring games. I enjoy both and love playing them at friend's houses. I just found both too easy after awhile.
Hitting Uncle Fester on TAF is not hard in a home setting. You will master that shot quickly. Once mastered touring the masion is fairly easy. In fact, touring the mansion a couple of times isn't too hard. But the light show, sound effects, and multiball are awesome.
I find the flow on ToM much better. The ball really whips around. Like TAF, starting the wizard mode isn't that difficult. The wizard mode is a let down. Not a great wizard mode at all. But the sound effects, theme, and flow are amazing and I enjoy it alot.
At the end of the day, I think it comes down to which game you like more. I think you are getting the better part of the trade. You could always do the trade and sell TAF down the road if you don't like it; however will you regret selling a nice ToM? They don't come around often anymore.
I would probably agree with you if that was the case up here but the closest location to me is about a 6 hour drive. Yipes!
Had both of them. Theatre of Magic is a beautiful game maybe the best looking pin made. However for me it got too repetitive. I played Addams a bunch of times on beat up tables and couldn't understand the draw. Once I played a fully working example I got it. So much so I got a fully restored one. Needless to say it is still here and theatre is sold. If if is in good shape and your getting dollars to boot I'd jump on it.
